    In response to Bruno

Well, my concern for Brown (and Cornell and Dartmouth) is that the playing field has changed extensively from when Miller and Robinson were fielding good teams, and it has even shifted since Agel. And it certainly has shifted since Cornell was winning the league. I'm not sure these teams can compete with HYP when those schools are focused on basketball. They are just bringing in too many players who are much higher level recruits now. Those schools have financial and brand advantages, and they are the places to go play basketball to boot.

The rising tide may eventually lift Brown -- if enough 3 star guys are thinking Ivy, eventually HYP just can't take them all and there may be a flattening out of talent across the league. But right now, the talent gulf is widening. I'm not sure a different coach or approach bridges that gap.
