Can anyone remember a day when EVERY Ivy underdog won--ALL on the road? Penn over Harvard, Brown over Columbia (big), Yale destroys Princeton and Cornell (!!) over Dartmouth?

What a crazy league.

It was as improbable as it was remarkable. BTW, I told you all the panic in the wake of the Penn-Columbia debacle and the cries for Priore’s head were overdone. They stole one from Cornell and had a solid performance yesterday. I actually like their chances for a 6-4 (4-3) season next week. The young defense is finally coming together and They have some young skill players on offense.

I disagree. Priore is a very good game coach---I've always given him this. But they are smaller and less athletic than any Penn team in recent memory. And that is the number one Prior[ity] of any college coach. His recruiting from day one was not as good as Bagnoli--he won with Bagnoli's players. On his own, still coaches them well, but Penn is not on path to a title.

I will give you that these two wins (both of which were pretty lucky) are likely to assure him of another year.

If I were the Penn AD (and thank God I'm not, for all our sakes), the key to Priore keeping his job would be for him to come to me the day after the season ends with a comprehensive plan to revitalize recruiting. Those who say our team is smaller, slower and less talented than in the past and versus our Ivy peers are correct. There's no good reason for this, and if the coach doesn't have a well-thought-out plan to correct it, I'd replace him.
