The hard-working folks at the new SME Network website, (and they do seem to be trying hard to capture the attention of all the I-AA/FCS college football fans), have come out with their own http://www.smebroadcasting.com/footballTop25.html?DB_OEM_ID=2400 prediction for the 2007 Ivy League final football standings, (and thanks to Bruce Wood of Big Green Alert for finding this first):
SME Network Predictions
Jake's Take: Three predictions, and three votes for Columbia in sixth. For those of you not familiar with the way the Lions are regarded by the media, this is actually a major step up. For published prognosticators not to pick Columbia last in any given year means they see a much improved team that can probably make a good run at a winning season. For them to pick us for sixth, instead of the somewhat cop-out-like seventh place, is an even rarer vote of confidence.
As for the rest of the picks, they're pretty solid. But I really think putting Penn at fifth is a shaky call. The Quakers will contend for the title this season, I'm pretty sure of that.
