Princeton -4 1/2.

According to Pomeroy, Princeton is now 143 and Penn is 162. A Penn win tomorrow night would most certainly have us overtake Princeton, right?

Penn has no chance of winning. They are going to shoot 50% from 3 in their gym, we are going to shoot 28% and that will be that. Princeton sucks though.

The current ranking shows you just how awful our scheduling was this year (in addition to the IL having a down year overall).

It would have to be a decent sized win (by a couple possessions or more).

As for the scheduling, here are the projected profiles of the league's top three (SPOILER ALERT - IT'S NOT GOOD!!!):

Harvard
Tier 1: 0-2
Tier 2: 0-4
Tier 3: 4-6
Tier 4: 9-3

Penn
Tier 1: 0-1
Tier 2: 1-2
Tier 3: 4-4
Tier 4: 15-2

Princeton
Tier 1: 1-3
Tier 2: 0-1
Tier 3: 3-5
Tier 4: 12-3

Presumably if you included the IL tourney there's at least the possibility of one more T2 game for Penn.

Not with the new home/road tiers. Would need to have an opponent be Top 75 RPI to be a home Tier II win.

Princeton, Harvard or team four could pick up a Tier II win if they beat Penn (road game Tier IIs are Top 135), but the Quakers really would need to finish 13-1 (mayyyybe 12-2) in league play to be able to absorb a home loss in the tourney and stay Top 135.

OK... So Penn's 10-point win tomorrow evening should do it. If/when that happens, I'm buying the first round of drinks at Conte's Pizza for any Penn posters on this board after the game... We will be celebrating another memorable Penn win at the Hangar!!

Thank you for educating me on the latest twists and turns.

Always interesting as well to read your takes here and on your Twitter feed. Most of the time I agree but even when I don’t it still makes me think.

A bit of history on Jadwin Gym, for those who are unaware:

Jadwin Gymnasium is named for Chelmsly Worthington Jadwin IV, heir to the storied Jadwin Finance fortune. Chelmsly's great grandfather, Busworth ("Buzzard") Jadwin was a financial innovator who originated the payday loan ("Why wait for your money? Get it now from Jadwin! Jadwin Payday Loans: exploiting the vulnerable since 1906!") Buzzard Jadwin's namesake building stands as an enduring testament to the social conscience of Princeton University.

The fact that I'm still unsure whether this is satire or not speaks volumes about Princeton's reputation.

And that Einstein guy doesn't get a free pass either. I mean, what did he do for humanity?

To be clear, he never did come up with that unified field theory.
