JAN 5 (FRI) 7:00 PM
IVY LEAGUE
VS
PRINCETON
PRESENTED BY STEAMFITTERS LOCAL UNION 420

At first I thought this must be some elitist form of a joke but it's straight from the official Penn Athletics site. Must be the latest in marketing desperation.

Are both teams joining the union or just Penn?

It's a single game sponsorship, Foehi. Many of Penn's individual home games are sponsored by the likes of Amazon, Coke Zero, as well as other labor unions. It's a way of generating advertising revenue. Why must that be "marketing desperation"?

when they were co-dominating the League for 20+ years none of this was necessary.

At least it’s guaranteed to be nice and warm in the Palestra. The forecast temp at game time in Phila is five BELOW zero. Honest.

Toasty warmth courtesy of the steamfitters, of course. Thanks!

Apparently, Penn and Princeton have postponed tonight's game until tomorrow afternoon because it's too cold.

This does not reflect well upon the steamfitters.

I think most of Philly (including federal courts) were closed today.

So after all that, they're playing a doubleheader with the women -- W 1PM, M 4PM.

Both games played according to form, and were closer than final scores, Princeton women 70-55, Penn men 76-70. Men’s race has every hallmark of being very close 4-team tong war with a really interesting tourney. Women’s season may be a search to see if anybody can play forty minutes with the Tigers, who are heavy duty on defense and have played a strong schedule, now #31 RPI. Brown, Harvard and Dartmouth could give it a try, but somebody will have to win at Jadwin to be a real contender.

The real battle between the Killer P's is being fought by our President and Princetonian Robert S Mueller III. But it won't be only a two-school race as Harvard MBA Steve Bannon and even former Columbia student (though outbound transfer student -- to Vassar) Michael Wolff are involved.

Look for the Philadelphians to get a boost from our President's definitive statement that he attended "the best colleges" -- good news for Fordham.

ESPN just ran a crawler across the bottom of the screen that Alabama is seeking its third straight 13-win season which "no major-college program has accomplished since Penn from 1895-97."

There you have it: We're major colleges.

The Dartmouth women's victory over Harvard was close to a "must win" as it gets for a season-opener. My gut is that if Dartmouth doesn't qualify for the tournament this season, Koclanes will be let go.

The Ivy women are having a remarkable season with several teams notching victories against "big name" schools. Sure, Princeton is likely the favorite. But if Dartmouth can beat BC, Rhode Island, and Colorado, beating the Tigers doesn't seem like a stretch...

BC and URI are terrible basketball teams. Colorado is rated similarly to Penn, not Princeton, but a win in Boulder is certainly a plus. Their most recent losses at Albany and Binghamton are hardly impressive, though. They’re not yet ready to win a tournament at the Palestra. But it’s a long league trek.

I checked their schedules. You are correct that URI is a "terrible" team.

Neither BC or Colorado are as good as I had believed, but both have some decent victories to their resumes.

As I said, so long as Dartmouth finishes fourth, I think Koclanes is safe. Obviously, I'd prefer higher than that, but we haven't had much success in hoops in either program for a while...

If you are going to be in my area, I'd be delighted. Have BW give you my contact information.

But I'm guessing that you were talking to foehi.

:)
