While every year is different, and 6-8 probably won’t get you in this year, I would caution against the attitude that you have to start 2-0.

Cornell started 0-3 last year (and within a point of 0-4) and still made it. The year before Penn started 0-6. Obviously our attitude as fans can be different from that of the team, but I prefer to avoid the assumption that an early game is a must win — I think it can be detrimental to the team going forward if they lose the game.

Obviously it is better to sweep Cornell that not to. But going 1-1 or 0-2 isn’t the end of the world. Find a way to 8 wins.
