I mean, you do know that Columbia finished tied for fourth place, right?

Or are there more than two divisions in the Ivy League in your mind?

You do know what parody is, right? And quality parody, at that.

If the situation that Calvin is parodying exists, it wasn't in the Ivy 2021 football season.

Is he talking about some other year? Some other conference? Both?

Second division? Columbia had a very good team which finished 7-3, 4-3 in the league, and had one bad game (Harvard, coming on the heels of a Yale game in which we snatched defeat from the jaws of victory). And Columbia had some excellent rookies (Canty, Green, Libman on offense for example).

As is often the case, I have no idea what Calvin is talking about.

Indeed, I don't even know why I waste my time asking him for clarification... oh well.

And if you apply the metric some Dartmouth people (you, perhaps) want, since they lost to Harvard, they do deserve to be considered Harvard's inferior.

Do you ever think before you knee jerk critique?

I have no idea what you're getting at.

And I'm not going to attempt to find out.

And I am not even bringing up the fact that Dartmouth's loss was at home, on a big national broadcast.

Of course I mean to refer to Yale instead of Harvard, but point is the same.

First you say that Columbia was a second division team. Not correct.

Then you say that they lost to Harvard, which was accurate, but a complete non-sequitur.

Tell you what-why don't you explain to us why 2012 Penn should be considered Ivy Champions even thought they lost to last-place Yale that year. And square that with your theory that 2021 Dartmouth should not be Ivy Champions because we lost to fourth-place Columbia.

Is it because 2012 Penn lost to Yale in New Haven and the game was not on TV?

Is that what you're saying?
