So, how does the league stack up after week one?
Here are my Ivy rankings:
The Bears win on the road against what sure looked like the toughest opponent for any Ivy team this Saturday. Sure, Stony Brook's penalties are what killed them... but Brown was disciplined and talented enough to take advantage. And of the three 1st Team All-Ivy QB's playing yesterday, only Kyle Newhall-Cabellero had a decent game.
The Elis defense was predictably questionable, but Patrick Witt started the season out right.
The Big Green gets a big win over Colgate, but the Raiders played without their #1 weapon in RB Nate Eachus.
The Crimson got uncharacteristically sloppy for a long stretch in the loss to Holy Cross. But the game was on the road against a good team.
A shocking rout at the hands of a questionable Lafayette team and at home no less. But it seems too early to write off the two-time defending champs so soon.
Great win at home against Bucknell to start the year, but Bucknell is not top flight competition. Let's see how they do next week at Yale.
Lions come out sloppy in week one, but look improved on defense.
Tigers play powerful Lehigh pretty close for awhile, but they have a habit of doing that every year. Bucknell comes in next week.
