In reply to: Ivy Inquisitor 's message, "Did I stump the panel ?" on 04:19:09 11/07/21 Sun


If Princeton forfeited a game to Dartmouth based on the use of an ineligible player a few months after the game was played, I'd feel silly demanding that the Sawhorse Dollar be shipped to Hanover...

Given that Princeton has never shown any interest in the Sawhorse Dollar (if anything, Surace pretty much disavowed it as meaningless a few years back), and given that Dartmouth has shown an interest in it at least in years past, I'd say that it will remain in Floren Varsity House's trophy room if it's not being traded anymore.

I'll leave it up to everyone else to decide if there's a correlation between the above and Tad's observation on Friday evening that Dartmouth has always had Princeton's number throughout the decades....

They've met 100 times; Dartmouth's won 51 of them. Even Friday night's game was competitive- at least if you're a student of the various analytical categories that don't mean very much.

I doubt citing Princeton's record against us from the 1930s back will make them feel better... :)

The Ivy still had freshmen football in my day. In 1989, Princeton beat us en route to a shared title with Yale (Cozza's last title). They also won the freshmen game against us if that means anything... :)

In 1990, 1991, and 1992, we beat them. 1991 was a "winner take all" game. 1992 enabled us to share the title with the Tigers (we had gotten upset against Cornell a few weeks earlier).

The 1989 freshmen game at Princeton was especially a thrill for me. Not only was it my first collegiate game, but we shared a locker room with the New Jersey Nets (who were training at Princeton at the time).

It was the first time I had seen NBA guys up close. They were BIG!!!!

:)

one of the very biggest NewJersey Nets on that'89 team was seven foot center, Chris Dudley. Dudley, of course, came out of Yale; a school that not only will you be mightily rooting for in six days time; but a school that can lay far better claim than Dartmouth to "having Princeton's football number":those two have met 142 times; Yale's won seventy-eight; including fourteen straight from 1967 to 1980; and by a score of 51-14 the last time the two met in 2019.

Ha! I never knew that Dudley was on that team! I really didn't pay much attention to Ivy sports history until a while after I got there, so I wouldn't have known him at the time anyway...

... that said, there were a good number of 7-footers (or darn close to it) in that locker room with us. It was something!
