Week 1 Picks
Last Year's Record: 30-12
Yale over Georgetown
I have a lot of doubts about the Elis this year, and Georgetown looked decent in week one against Holy Cross. But I just don't think the Hoyas have what it takes to win this one.
Villanova over Penn
I expect the Quakers to make this another close game, but lose again. The Wildcats look stronger this year than ever.
Holy Cross over Harvard
The Crimson have a lot of weapons, but Tim Murphy's teams have been rusty in openers over the years. Harvard gets stronger as the season gets older, and the Crusaders are facing them just at the right time.
Colgate over Dartmouth
Colgate comes into Hanover pretty banged up, but the Big Green aren't ready yet to beat a superior opponent. However, I do expect a great close game like the 2007 contest.
Brown over Stony Brook
This is year two of Stony Brook using athletic scholarships, and the team seems to be getting worse. The Sea Wolves better turn it around fast or Coach Chuck Priore is toast. Oh, that won't be happening tomorrow against Brown.
Cornell over Bucknell
The Bison have not looked strong this year at all. The Big Red don't appear to be world beaters either, but they're at home.
The Citadel over Princeton
The Tigers have just too many question marks, especially at QB.
