Monmouth barely beat Lafayette.

Lafayette sucks.

Hence, Princeton's demolishing Monmouth means...?

Hi Green

You really can't evaluate the tigers unless you have seen them play (have you?). If you haven't seen them play, you really should watch a replay on ESPN+. I thought they would be good, but I never expected this. After the first period in both games, Princeton's defense has been a stone wall. The offense is actually better than last year. Lovett is a monster. He hit a couple of receivers in stride 30-40 yards down field. Of course we are only two games in, so time will tell.

gentlemen; just my two cents here the tigers are indeed the front runner with a superb aerial and running attack. throw in a staunch defense this squad may dominate the league as it did in 1964. our blue has seven weeks to get our squad healthy and hopefully improve in order to meet the challenge of this ancient eight juggernaut.

Jeff Sagarin updated as of yesterday:

Princeton, 10 points better than any other Ivy.

Then, closely-bunched, within a touchdown top-to-bottom:
2-Dartmouth
3-Harvard
4-Yale
5-Penn
6-Columbia

Then a TD back to Cornell

Then a TD and 2 pt conversion back to Brown.

Would agree with Sagarin, except for suspect nature of Tiger competition to date casts some doubt on Princeton standing. A couple of observations seem in order:

--Dartmouth Penn game this coming weekend will be very revealing;

--Princeton-Columbia may (I think will) expose Lions as a second division team;

--Next three games on Yale schedule, Maine, Dartmouth, and Mercer, may prove Bulldogs' undoing (thank God all three will be in Bowl). Will Yale have any gas left in the tank by the time they play Penn?

--Princeton does look good, and remaining OOC game with Lehigh should not be too challenging. However, this team has historically lacked depth. Time will tell if Tigers can survive final three games in November: D-Y-Penn, in that order. I have my doubts!

Stay tuned....

These OOC games are junk food. While satisfying a craving, they provide the same ultimate value.

I stand by my view that Jeff's work is interesting; but only useful after four games.

Having offered that caveat
I agree that six teams are very close this year.
Princeton has "shown" the best, but is not 10 points better (P has played soft openers)

I do believe Cornell and Brown improved this season, but a notch below the other six (not 7-9 point spread).

Final deep thoughts:
There will be at least 3 upset wins
And at least a two-way tie for the championship.

I remember 2013 very well. Princeton blew everyone away then too.

Until they played Dartmouth in Hanover.

We have cone a long way in four years when we bemoan an ugly loss. For three and a half quarters we were sleepwalking through a laugher. Then it looked like a total loss of intensity. One thing for sure; we are going to have to play a lot better on Friday. Hopefully we will get a few guys back. Down three starters on offense presents a challenge.
