Week 2 Picks

Last week: 6-1

Overall: 6-1

Harvard over Brown

I think this is going to be a great game no matter what, but I admit to being in the dark, (like almost everyone else), about the status of super Bear defensive lineman David Howard. If he's held out, you have to give the Crimson a bigger edge. But I give this one to Harvard with or without Howard at this point. The Bears running game is still not impressing me and their secondary is not looking strong enough to stop Harvard's many threats.

Yale over Cornell

This is a shaky pick, because you really don't know much about this Yale team and Cornell comes in with some decent confidence. But it's tough to pick against the Elis at the Bowl with a generally weak Big Red team coming in.

Lafayette over Penn

Again I'm basically in the dark, but it appears Penn's starting runners are banged up coming into this tough road game. With these defenses, don't be surprised if the final in this game turns out to be something like 10-7. One thing that Penn has to like is the definite dropoff in effectiveness for Leopard kicker David Rodriguez. If this thing comes down to a field goal, the Quakers have to like their chances.

New Hampshire over Dartmouth

This could get ugly. Dartmouth is showing some flashes from some individual defensive players, but the Big Green's record against the run is alarming.

Lehigh over Princeton

Lehigh needs this one and Princeton's offense doesn't have all the kinks out. I don't think new QB Tommy Wornham is ready to lead his team to an out of conference win on the road.
