At the time the potential Princeton-Rutgers game was first broached, Princeton was a bottom-feeder in the Ivy and Rutgers was competitive. By the time that changed, it was too late for the P-R game.


Hindsight is 20/20.

When I was playing, D-P was the Ivy game of the year.

A shame that we aren't closing with each other anymore, but I'm enjoying it!

Agreed, GG. Penn/Princeton may be a more heated rivalry, but you can't beat the history of end of season P/D matchups like the Elias vs. Fiedler years which as I recall reluctantly, Fiedler usually came out on top.

My context of P v D is my college years — 1965-1969. I believe that we ended the season at home against Dartmouth or Cornell, depending which opponent was to be a home game that year. In my Freshman year we were coming off an undefeated season (1964) and both P and D were undefeated through 8 games in 1965. Princeton was getting most of the press. But, Dartmouth cleaned our clock 28-14 and won the Lambert Trophy. This is not to suggest that P and D will again face each other undefeated through WEEK 7 — it’s a long season. But, if they do, I feel that this one should be ours.🐅

Whichever D or P runs the table will be a serious candidate for the Lambert.

But as you said, plenty of football left.

The 1950 edition in a hurricane is well-remembered, especially in the physics lab 400 yards away, where the entire roof blew off. Having spoken to a couple people who attended, seemingly 1) nobody ever seriously discussed postponing it, and 2) anyone who attended was clinically insane. Did you enjoy it, GG? 😁

My parents were there, so I'll confirm the clinically insane part. Also don't forget the 12th man game.

The hurricane and the snowstorm are God's way of saying that Princeton and Dartmouth should finish the year together.

Per the article, in the year of the snowstorm game Princeton played its final game versus Yale.

Fair point. God has been distracted lately, devoting a lot of His attention to Nick Saban.

If He were to ever really focus on optimizing college football, Princeton and Yale would finish the season in New York City, playing for the national championship in front of 60,000.

The famous 12th man snowstorm game was in 1935 between Princeton and Dartmouth. My father was there along with a few hundred other sturdy soles with nothing better to do. He would swear to it if he hadn’t died in 1998.
