Well then the bad news for you is that Penn's starting guards can drive. The good news for you is that neither are great at finishing. Somewhat surprisingly Foreman has been better at finishing while Woods has been better at keeping defenses honest with a decent 3FG%. I was expecting the opposite.

Dude, when's the last time you visited the place?

You might be pleasantly surprised.

Plus, visiting fans have superb views of the action. We don't have to sit in an adjoining zip code like they do in some airplane hangars.

Just trying to have a little fun and post something at least a bit more clever than 10Q, dude. I've actually been a fan of the Palestra since my Dad took me to a Princeton-Penn/Temple-LaS alle double header back in the late 70s. And yes, the building seemed to be in a little better shape when I made it there both days for the post-season Ivy thingy last March.

One of the real strengths of the Penn team is that Bentley moves extremely well without the ball.

Yeah, but we've got Tony Wood and Caleb Woods.

And Jerome Ray (you wouldn't know it from his last name, but you can't spell cheesesteak without R-A-Y).

My apologies to Ryan Betley for misspelling his name. Sorry that my typing is lousy. You still move very well without the ball.

Yes we need Betley to have a big game on Fri on both ends. He does move very well off the ball and also is a better defender than you expect because he is very long. He's been very good and consistent all year but is due for a big game so here's to hoping it's this week.

You took the time to compose it and thought THAT was more clever??

That is pretty clever, for a Princeton fan.

Someone nominated my post for post of the decade. So I doubt anything a Tiger person could come up with would be more clever.

I confess, you lost me on that one, P38. I guess I should have told 10Q that the only other nominee was DT.

True that. I feel like I've aged 20 years in the last 12 months. Thanks for the funny link, P38.
