Week 9 Picks

Last Week: 0-3!

Overall 24-12

Well, I put up my first-ever goose egg for a weekend last Saturday by overestimating Dartmouth, underestimatin Yale, and falling victim to Princeton's schizophrenic offensive play this year.

Brown over Dartmouth

Brown's offense went completely flat against Yale last week at home, and now the Bears clear path to the Ivy title is muddled. But Dartmouth is just to weak at too many key positions to win this game. The Big Green's best chance to avoid the dreaded 0-10 will be next week against Princeton.

Yale over Princeton

Yale's defense is really hitting its stride right now, and the Princeton offense is really sputtering despite the continued fine play of tailback Jordan Culbreath. The Elis should pull this one out.

Harvard over Penn

Penn's defense is good, but not good enough to stop Chris Pizzotti and all his dangerous receivers. The Crimson are playing with great confidence now that they have a much better shot at winning the title.

Basketball season begins tonight, with a game at Fordham. And the women are out in Michigan. Then the men play Sunday at the big arena in Newark vs. Seton Hall (with big time ticket prices), while the women play at Delaware.

This doesn't merit mention?

Gutsy win by the hoops team at a tough place to win and great program win as Coach Jones said. Nice way to start the season after losing 6 seniors from last year.
