...will be Dartmouth's defensive front. A first to worst to first will be the first of its kind in the Ivy League. And you heard it here first.

Jack,

I hope you're right. I fear you're wrong.

Assuming health, its hard to see any weak spots in Dartmouth's defense.

Hopefully they play up to their potential.

on the DL with 3 guys returning that played a total of 1 down last year led by the fearless and maybe best the DT in the league "Stonewall" Jackson Perry who as a Freshman was in on the goal line stand at Harvard 2 yrs ago

the LB's are good although we will miss Flo

Real strong on the back end with a lot of depth

....expect Dartmouth's backline to lead the League in interceptions with the havoc being wrought up front.

...Dartmouth's defense held them to MINUS-3 yards rushing for the entire game. The "Jackson 5" (Jackson Perry, wearing #5) had 3.5 TFL and 1.5 sacks -- in the first quarter alone. The predicted havoc up front resulted Dartmouth's first (but far from last) pick 6. Holy Cross in Hanover next week will be interesting...

The broadcast announcer mentioned Stetson does not have scholarships. So that would explain the smaller players that look like 4th stringers elsewhere. It is ok to be a scrappy team but they need to figure out if going winless is worth it.

Ranked #1 against the run
Ranked #2 against the pass
Ranked #2 in total defense.

If those rankings are remotely close after this coming Saturday, I'll be impressed.

OK, so I admit I'm biased but Penn has to have the best defense in the Ivy league with all their returning starters and all Ivy players. I know they gave up 24 points last Saturday against a D2 team but I expect that to turn around quickly and the defense will dominate going forward.

Penn plays a bend don't break defense that was very opportunistic last year. We played a ton of kids last week so I'm not sure how relevant the OD stats are. We didn't occupy much clock in the 1st half and we gave them a garbage TD near the end of the game when it was effectively over. Still - no INTs and that was a key to our success on defense last year. We'll know more after Saturday.

Speaking of defenses, I watched a little of the replay of the Yale/Lehigh game on the PLN channel. Lehigh left receivers 15 yards open on a couple of those early Yale TDs. It was kind of shocking for me to see that from a Lehigh team.
