Wins against bubble ("WAB") can help give some perspective on the quality of records, as it is a measure of how the average bubble team would have done against the same schedule the given team played relative to the number of wins that team actually earned. Here's WAB for the Ivy:

1) Penn -1.6 wins
2) Cornell -2.5 wins
3) Brown -3.5 wins
4) Princeton -3.6 wins
5) Harvard -3.7 wins
6) Yale -4.5 wins
7) Dartmouth -4.7 wins
8) Columbia -6.9 wins

WAB obviously misses a ton of important context, but does a great job of answering the question of "how strong is a team's actual record."

Is it just me, or has Yale's play gotten worse since they went to the small starting lineup? I know the minutes haven't changed a whole lot, so it may not make that much difference, but I don't see why they play small so much, particularly at the start of games. I also think I'd play Phils more. Bringing both Oni and Phils off the bench just seems odd to me, in terms of balancing out size, defense, etc.
