It has come to my attention via several sources that a valued starting player has been kicked off the team by Coach Norries Wilson for throwing his helmet after the Lions loss to Penn Saturday. I will not publicly name the player to shield him from further embarrassment.
I bring up this incident not only because it was an extremely harsh punishment that needs to be rescinded, but because Coach Wilson himself was guilty of the same kind of helmet throwing after the loss at Princeton.
That incident is also confirmed by several sources.
This expulsion of this excellent player cannot stand.
Ivy Power Rankings
Still in the driver's seat after a thorough beat down of Bucknell. Both the offense and defense are totally clicking.
The Bears totally embarrass Princeton and make it clear they are still a championship caliber team. All Brown can do is keep playing like this and hope Harvard somehow stumbles.
The Quakers are 2-0 in the league, but they sure don't look like they're in Harvard and Brown's league. Remember, Penn still has to play both those teams on the road.
The Elis are just a different team on the road... a bad team.
A very impressive near win for the Big Red at Colgate. This offense is actually one of the best in the league.
A close loss to Holy Cross doesn't quite push the Big Green up the rankings. Coach Teevens is now in hot water as he just can't find an answer at QB and the much-hyped Dartmouth squad is now 1-4.
A total humiliation at Brown has the Tigers and Bob Surace right back at the bottom again.
Still winless and more obviously without good leadership than ever. A better coaching staff and this team is easily 3-2 and maybe 4-1.
