Yeah, it can be confusing when you mix up the brothers.

Somebody must have spiked the drinking water during the break. Very unusual for the quality of play drop down so precipitously after the West Coast trip and the Columbia/Cornell weekend. The Tigers may have played their best game of the year against a very good Middle Tennessee team and even though they played poorly at the Palestra, they had the opportunity to win.

Why the free fall? Good question. Maybe, the freshmen have hit a wall plus Cannady is out of sorts. I do believe that the coaching staff has faced challenges in putting together a cohesive squad.

At the end of the day, the Tigers have a lot of talent and Coach H will have the Tigers stay competitive especially with the incoming recruiting class plus this year's freshmen plus Stephens and Cannady next year. The program will be just fine.

Small pleasure but at least last year's 16-0 team is good for another year.

Freshman wall-hitting is not an uncommon phenomenon. It's a long, grueling season for them, much tougher than what they probably had to endure at the HS level. Look at Brodeur's dropoff during the final third of last season. Part of that can be explained by conference opponents keying on him, but fatigue was almost certainly a factor as well. This season he seems to be getting stronger as the season progresses. My expectation is that Princeton's freshmen will show a similar progression next year.
