I don't know who doesn't respect whom but let's talk (again) about Princeton's football program. It is obviously on a roll this year and there are many readily understandable factors behind it including money. You may not call them scholarships but they have a way to pay for what they want- as a top school with a storied tradition and a great stadium.
That said, we lost yesterday and I just don't get why anyone needs to get upset about the fact. No, we don't need to belittle Colgate's own program, the PL or question whether or not scholarships are worthwhile as far as helping Colgate recruit. We are where we are and should simply try to make the best of it!
There are plenty of other challenges out there and no amount of backbiting is helpful now, is it?
I look forward to see Colgate's terrific and dedicated coaches and smart players do their best in the coming weeks.

Colgate has been playing Princeton in football regularly for over a century. We have won 9 of 11 games with them the last 18 years, and 7 out of 8 the last 12 years. The 2 losses the last 18 years were a 1-point overtime loss in 2006 due to a missed extra point, and a fluky 14-10 loss in 2002 I was at which prevented our 21-game winning streak in 2002-2003 from being a 25-game winning streak. Princeton's future schedules for the foreseeable future have us being replaced by Georgetown and Davidson. Does anyone think this is to strengthen Princeton's schedule? Dartmouth made a similar decision a few years ago when they had lost 16 of their last 18 games with Colgate. Unlike Princeton, they were honest enough to say it was because the series was not competitive, but claimed it was because we played them after playing 2 or 3 games while for them it was often the first game of the season. Ironically, their last game with Colgate in 2011, which I attended, was also a decisive Colgate loss like yesterday's game.
I agree with get 'em gate and Gate Raider that our attitude shouldn't be "who cares if we lose to Ivy teams, and get blown out by FBS and good FCS teams, as long as we win 4 or 5 PL games a year". And while I agree with Steve that 1 loss shouldn't cause us to belittle Colgate's program, the PL, or call for Hunt's head, let's not fool ourselves - this was a BAD loss.
