Like the Bruner pick (though I didn't make it). Will be interesting to see who can make a big soph leap among all the great rookies from last year.

That 2016 class is gonna be an all-timer... NINE 2 win share players and 20 with half a win share as freshmen. Insanity.

Alrighty... I'll dive in here. Haven't done the work I'd normally do (probably won't be able to this year, sadly), but generally this is where my head is at:

Princeton
Yale
Harvard
Penn
Columbia
Dartmouth
Cornell
Brown

The top three to me seem to be pretty even, so I'll be the one that goes against the grain.

Penn's sorta in no man's land right now, probably closer to Columbia/Dartmouth/Cornel l than HYP, but significantly enough in between that I can see why they're gonna be a near-unanimous pick for 4th.

I really think Columbia's strong freshman class is going to help it EASILY outperform the #283 ranking on Bart Torvik's site, but that's a lot of ground to make up on Penn. The freshman class projects for about 24 WS over four years in my model, and last year's seniors only combined for 5, so there's a fair deal of evidence that the production might not drop.

I'm not a believer in Cornell just yet (and especially to the crazy Top 200 level that others are). Probably unfair to have them below Dartmouth, but Columbia/Cornell/Dartmout h are about as hard to pick between as HYP.

Brown - it's all about the defense. We'll see. They'll score points, for sure.

Regular Season:
Yale
Princeton
Harvard
Penn
Columbia
Dartmouth
Cornell
Brown

Agree with most people here that Harvard, Princeton and Yale are a toss-up for the top 3. While I think Harvard has the most overall talent of that top group, I believe that Yale and Princeton are more disciplined teams. Comparing the Bulldogs and Tigers, I think Yale has a stronger core.

With the other 5 programs, I feel that all but Brown will see improvement this season. Penn seems to be a solid four. Columbia should be better than what some non-Ivy commentators are stating. While I think that Dartmouth and Cornell are a little below Columbia, it is not that far a drop. I think Brown will have a harder time this season, but things look better for next season.

POY: Mason (Runner-Up Stephens)
ROY: Faulds (Runner-Up Much)

First-Team
Mason, Aiken, Morgan, Stephens, Boudreaux
Second-Team
Oni, Cannady, Towns, Brodeur, Brunner

Three more predictions:

Harvard fans will really miss having Chambers to run the show.

Princeton fans will be disappointed that Much is not ready to play at this level this year. Desrosiers is more likely to contribute right away.

Penn fans will wage a pitched battle all year over the best lineup. It will be the Speedy Freshmen vs the Donahue Deliberates.
