We are one slot ahead of Yale!
When was the last time that happened?

Now let's see if we can prove that on the court as well.

Of course that is the only thing that matters. That logic applies as well to those who whine about losing recruiting battles. Only the results matter.

Well, let's not get too carried away. Being #1 because other teams lost and are now ranked lower is a lot different than having 3-4 top 100 teams and Penn is the highest rated. I'd prefer the latter as it's better for our league.

That said, we have been the most consistent and have the best win so far. I'd be happy with a IL tourney seed of 3 or higher for this team.

So did I. So I guess this Pomeroy ranking is a Chanukah present of sorts. It will go nicely with the slipper socks my daughter gave me last night.

I'll know this program has bottomed out when we hang a "Top Ivy in Pomeroy" banner in the Palestra.

Top Ivy In KenPom....For a Day.

That would be a better banner.

or, the Chanukah Miracle.

We didn't think Penn was going to have enough juice to stay #1 Ivy in KenPom for more than one night.

But thanks to a mysterious bug in the algorithm and fortuitous scheduling, Penn was able to hang on for 8 whole nights.

One of my (and my wife's) favorite places to grab a quick bite before a game.

As of today, Penn is scheduled to have played both Pomeroy #1 (Villanova) and Pomeroy #351 (Delaware State) in the same season.

How often does that happen?

I have a feeling that game at the Palestra might show a lot of rust, then again it could be cheesesteak time
Good game to come back to after a long break and two big games at home afterwards, Toledo and Princeton

Fascinating that all of the current winless DI teams reside in just two conferences: the SWAC (4 teams!) and the MEAC (2 teams).

Delaware State is part of the MEAC as well. It has 2 wins to its credit, although they are against non DI opponents.

So it's gonna be a real battle royale to see who ends up with the worst KenPom rating by year's end.

Delaware State, of course, could avoid all of this by giving Penn a game...nah, never mind.

We lost to them at the Palestra in the season opener in Jerome's last season.

Nothing is certain except getting killed by Nova
