Pitt would win ILT? The same Pitt who lost by 9 to Navy and we beat by 21? No.

  • HARVARDDADGRAD Said:
Just like Pitt did this year?

0-18 Pitt resulted in a mutiny. Probably would have made our tournament though.

I'll bet computer simulations had Pitt very competitive to compete in and possibly win our tournament. Wonder what the AI was for that squad? They were certainly smart enough to seek transfer rights.



The ACC comment is pretty pointless from where I’m sitting (sorry 10Q), but to be clear Pitt would not be highly rated against the Ivy this past year. They would have the 5th best Kenpom rating behind Penn, Harvard, Yale and Princeton, only edging Columbia by 4 spots to avoid 6th.

For Penn fans worried about moving the Ivy Tournament to Yale, there is this item about homecourt boost (difference between home and away winning percentage) buried in an NCAA article on the toughest home courts.

https://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball-men/a rticle/2...

- Strangely enough, Gonzaga's homecourt boost (15.07 percent) is the second lowest in all of Division I, behind Penn at 12.7 percent. -

Take from it what you will ....

But Gonzaga is still selected as the 3rd toughest place for visitors to play. I'd venture that Penn's HCA over the past decade was diminished as the fans became frustrated and called for the program to be overhauled - as it eventually was.

Overall, however, the article does state that:

"Since the turn of the century, the average Division I team wins 34.1 percent of its games on the road, and 68.5 percent of its games at home. That's a staggering difference."

This stat is likely higher for a tournament atmosphere where home fan support is more likely and intense.

I previously provided the Ivy league in conference home records for each team in 2017-18 and recall a decisive and obvious impact.

It depends on who is in the building. That's why the ticket policy for the playoff will be so important--Penn could easily fill the building by itself. Yale fans, in general, don't care and if the tournament is held, as it was last year, during Spring Break, Penn will buy up all the Yale tickets.

Please be kind enought to leave 4 for my Harvard group. Appreciated.

More than likely, tix blocks will be allocated to each school and sell out. After that, it'll be first come first serve.

Come into the 2010s. There are secondary sources for tickets. I agree they will be parceled out originally but that doesn't mean that a Yale student going to Cabo won't be happy to sell his tickets.
