Week 10 Picks
No excuses... I had a rough week last week.
Here's the look back...

Actual Final Score: Dartmouth 21 Brown 16
SU 1-1, ATS 1-1
For Penn +13 at Harvard I wrote:
"I like the Crimson to eke out a win here."
Actual Final Score: Harvard 37 Penn 20
SU 2-1, ATS 1-2
OVERALL 2011 RECORD: 30-9 SU, 21-18 ATS.
With my Against the Spread record dubiously close to .500, here I go with my final picks of the year:
Penn -6 1/2 vs. Cornell
The Quakers won't let down on the final weekend. This will be a strong final game for the Penn seniors. Lay the points.
Princeton +18 1/2 at Dartmouth
I like the Green to win by two scores, not three. But Princeton sure doesn't get as much out of freshman running back Chuck DiBillio as they should. Any other Ivy team with a consistent 100 yard rusher would at least control the clock a bit better.
Yale +14 1/2 at Harvard
Lots of added drama for The Game this year. Patrick Witt and Collier Winters in their last games against each other. Witt starting and presumably missing out on his chance for a Rhodes Scholarship interview. And Eli Head Coach Tom Williams in deep trouble for possibly lying on his resume. Elis lose, but keep it close.
