So Yale gets a pass because it was “Still sorting itself out” as you say?Dartmouth began this season with one starter returning on defense and three on offense. No one following this board could have predicted the success Dartmouth has had this season, especially after a sloppy first game against an inferior team. Let’s wait and see if Yale can beat Princeton and Harvard back to back before declaring their body of work better than Dartmouth’s.

Abstractly, I would say losing to a higher ranked team by a few points is a more impressive credential than losing by a lot to a lower ranked team, all other things being equal.

But as others have noted we have a few more hurdles to deal with before this is even a consideration.
