Personally, I'd flip Harvard and Columbia. But that's quibbling.

If what he says about Yale is true, we can expect Dartmouth and Princeton to finish 10-0 and 9-1. But which will be which?

Dartmouth has soundly beaten 2 of the better teams in the Ivies while Princeton has crushed teams that are not at Yale and Penn's level.

Assuming Princeton holds serve at home against Brown, we won't get a clear indication of how they stack up in a 60 minute contest until they visit Harvard the week after that.

But if Jake's assessment at this point in the season holds true, the P-D game should be a fun showdown between the league's two best teams.

I will be there!

Who's to say Columbia is not at Penn's or Yale's level? Penn just struggled by the same Sacred Heart team Cornell crushed. Yale lost to Holy Cross. The jury is out on both Penn and Yale.

Yes it is very inexact to make comparisons based on who beat who. As you mentioned, Yale lost to Holy Cross, and Holy Cross is 1-5, losing its latest game to Bucknell, Who is to know if Holy Cross is any better than Marist or other teams.
I think the only tell tale sign is what your record is, it seems, to determine how good you are.

Yale actually was ahead of Dartmouth for part of the game (however briefly).

That's impressive.

Columbia, and Monmouth for that matter, were ahead of Princeton for part of their games (however briefly).

Then they are all better than Penn!!


:)

In any event, this will sort itself out. There's a Princeton guy on the ASG Board who is furious that Lovett isn't being acknowledged as a finalist for the FCS MVP...

I mean, we're not even at the midseason point yet.

Fair point, Ivy Patriot. Jury is out for all of these teams until we see more head-to-head match-ups.

Jury is still out on Dartmouth unless we break the Harvard curse on 10/27 at home. If we can't win that one this year we aren't in the conversation with Princeton

We lost to Harvard then, yet vanquished "unbeatable" Princeton.

Trust me, when you are 7-1 against the opponent's coach, you're "in the conversation."
