In reply to: Go Green 's message, "You want the most dominant Ivy season ever? It's happening now." on 22:10:04 09/22/18 Sat

An "ivy season" has to include more than 3 games against ivy opponents, played by a varsity team.

I'm sure if Penn and the rest had a women's rugby team, Dartmouth wouldn't be kicking the **** out of everyone.

Dartmouth (varsity program) has 4 recruiting slots per year for the past 2 or 3 years and has recruited extremely well. Has a great team. Top 5 nationally.

Brown (varsity program) has had no recruiting slots until this year.

Harvard (varsity program) has 3 recruiting slots for 2 or 3 years and is behind Dartmouth.
Lets see what happens there in a few more years.

All the other Ivies have women's rugby teams and have no recruiting slots.
They are not varsity programs.
They are club teams that practice on average 3 days a week and play on Saturdays.

Of course Dartmouth would kick the crap out of them, big surprise.

Could be the closest we have to what HYP football was in the 1880s.

But one would expect that; their players are bigger.

Mrs. Go Green was extremely impressed with Dartmouth's younger players when she saw them play against Harvard.

She's convinced that some of them will end up playing in the Olympics.

Does the missus know whether any of the Dartmouth players are transgender who are transitioning to female? Recall that we were talking about a couple of the players after Dartmouth was on television.

That is currently a big deal locally here in high school sports. The top two girls' high school sprinters in the state are both boys who identify as girls. Because they are still minors, they have not begun any sort of hormone therapy and certainly no surgery. So at least in the basic mechanics of physiology, they are boys sprinting against girls.

It seems that the advantage would be similar in rugby. If you've got bigger, faster biological men on your team, that's a huge advantage. Although if they are at least 18, they might have at least begun hormone therapy to reduce their advantage in strength.

And just eyeballing the younger players from the roster, it doesn't look like that's an issue.

M3, that is very interesting information on the varsity status of each school's team and especially the number of recruiting slots. Is there a place to find that data for other or even all sports?

I ask because it seems that, in some sports, different Ivy teams have material differences in roster size.

Specific to women's rugby, do you know if all three varsity programs (D, B & H) have coaches and funding for recruiting, travel and uniforms?

I assume that some or most of the club teams do not have coaches, pay for their own uniforms and carpool at their own expense, crashing on the floor of hosting teams. Is that right?

That's what it meant to be a club team back in my day. Have things changed on that front?
