This is as pathetic as Drexel refusing to walk to the Palestra, where all fans could get a seat, insisting the game be played in their little gym. Same mindset at work - keep the Penn fans away to give the home team a chance.

Jonesy got a taste a couple of years ago, and desperately wants it back. And this is his ploy.

And, I think it was in Barbara Bush's will.

As lame as it is to have it at lol Yale, I am just glad it is not in the airplane hangar.

This is also known as the shooter in the grassy knoll theory.

The Ivy League is such a lame athletic conference.

Remember it was created with the express purpose of deemphasizing athletics.

So we're going to tell 3,000 interested fans of Ivy basketball (as if there is an unlimited amount of them) to basically eff off? That seems smart...

I really think it's time for Penn to pull out of the Ivy League athletically. Let's give out scholarships and apply for ACC membership. What could go wrong?

Oh please go away. I know you like to joke but the entire image of the University is based on being an Ivy. I know you admire the U, but Penn is not the U, nor should it be.

You know what's coming, don't you? No doubleheader. Separate admission for each game, so your $45 gets you Ivy half-Madness. Or maybe Ivy partial-Interest. That is, if ESPN will allow the time to sweep the riff-raff out from the first game before broadcast tip of the second.

Good. That will give me more time to get the hell out of New Haven and head to NYC for the night or maybe even back home. They may get some extra gate, but I'm not spending a dime in that town.

I'm just talking about athletics. Actually I'm just talking about basketball. Tell me you wouldn't enjoy Penn competing in the ACC in basketball.

Actually, New Haven has drastically improved its food and drink offerings in recent years. And the pizza always was very good.

Not anymore---there was a time, before the ACC became a football power conference, that it would have been fun to compete with the UNCs, UVAs and Wake Forests of the world. But Louisville (!!), the U (!!!) and Florida State (!!!!)?

No thanks.

We'll have athletic scholarships. We may not win the conference, but we could compete.

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.

What can you expect from a Harvard guy. Good intellect, but no ability to apply it to the real world.
