I was the original poster way back in September. I was not being "dismissive" of Yale. At least, that was not my intent.

Rather, I was making the point that, if a program wants and plans to become competitive for a championship and then eventually win it, a very good leading indicator for that degree of progress is beating Harvard.

Indeed, I think that the 2017 season supports my thesis. The unexpected victory in the 2016 finale was the turning point in Yale's resurrection, coming just one week after a complete shellacking by the Tigers.

After a long long drought, Yale has been Harvard twice in a row now and is the 2017 outright champion. That seems consistent with my September post.

Point taken, comment qualified accordingly. Got my observers mixed up; I was reading it as a Big 0 comment.

Calvin, paraphrasing a famous, though fictitious, Radcliffe graduate, our relationship "means never having to say you're sorry."

Though confusing me with the Big 0, that comes close.

Thanks, it's not necessary to invoke a Harvard reference, although I have to take responsibility for that.
