Better than the old trough at Franklin Field I guess.

I'm still trying to wrap my mind around what would happen if the tournament gets rotated, Columbia hosts it and a couple of teams have to share a locker room in Dodge.

The Women and men will share the locker rooms.




I think this is what they meant by having the men and women get together.

That would indeed provide teams with an incentive to get out of Dodge.

As is Bob Glascott, who passed away a little over a year ago. An institutional legend.

I'm thinking I'm sitting in the Princeton section. Lol. Should be fun.

It looks like the line opened at 4 and is up to 5 on the one site listing it.

Ah yes-- the rowing tanks. Right next to the rifle range. Those were the days.

3) Penn players are not allowed to walk to the game. They have to get on a bus and drive around Philadelphia for an hour before the game.




They have to park the bus on Boathouse Row, change into their unis, and walk the rest of the way to the Palestra.

How about the ancient squash courts under Franklin Field?

Lets hope the atmosphere in W Philly is like this tomorrow:

The look on Spalding's face after the offensive foul call is priceless.

I know someone who left the "Ryne Sandberg" game in '84 (2 HRs off of Sutter) and has never forgiven himself for it.

Me too, I also left the Duke Kentucky game just before Laetner's shot. Saw it on a tv in the concourse.

It's sad, though, when you realize that Penn students this decade have no memories of this kind of stuff. When's the last time we had throngs of Penn students so into a game like that?

To be fair, the product hadnt warranted much excitement.

I'm seeing Penn +5. So Penn makes one more 3-pointer than expected & Princeton makes one less 3-pointer, that's a 6-point swing & a Penn victory.

I'm starting to feel more confident.

Matt Howard has not played well in either Princeton game this year. He will tomorrow.

LET'S GO QUAKERS!
HURRAH FOR THE RED AND THE BLUE!

Sounds about right for a neutral court ;-)

Tommy Amaker made some very strong g statements that the ILT should be permanently at the Palestra. About the talk concerning Penn and HCA he said "this is above all that". Believes we should showcase the best arena in the league.

I couldn't agree more.
