Pick Six

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 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

1. Princeton
2. Harvard
3. Yale
4. Cornell
5. Pennsylvania
6. Columbia
7. Dartmouth
8. Brown

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.

I think that Penn is starting a slow decline as the twilight years of the Bagnoli reign begin. this is what happened to Yale in the last few years of the Cozza era. Foehi and Asia will have to be put on suicide watch if I am correct. PS, where is your big announcement?
