    Ivy League Week 1 2017

    Saturday, September 16, finally marks the full blast start of FCS football in the 2017 season, as the Ivy League finally kicks off its still-short season.

    Games:
    San Diego at Princeton
    Yale at Lehigh
    Bryant at Brown
    Harvard at Rhode Island
    Ohio Dominican at Penn
    Wagner at Columbia
    Cornell at Delaware
    Dartmouth at Stetson

    My picks:
    Princeton - Toreros were outmatched by a rebuilding UC Davis squad today.
    Lehigh - will they move on from the beating at Monmouth?
    Bryant - not sure about Brown this season
    Harvard - no questions asked; Rams were blasted at home by Stony Brook (though the two CAA opponents played close in their money games in Week 1.)
    Penn - Ohio Dominican is 0-2... and lost their first two games on the road.
    Wagner - Columbia has a lot of question marks
    Delaware - see Columbia
    Dartmouth - Stetson is overmatched even in the PFL.
    Ivy League Football: Since the latter half of the 20th century, slowly self-destructing to become irrelevant in the scene that they used to dominate, not too many fans among the younger generations, rusting their potentials in the process.
    Before, I liked a lot about Harvard football. Now, not so much. They are the main perpetrators of why Ivy League football has lost its popularity and it may never go back to what it used to be.

    Agree except for Cornell/Delaware. If we don't get a sweep, this will be the game we lost.

    Re: Ivy League Week 1 2017

    If Yale beats Lehigh this week, there will be dark storm clouds over South Mountain in Bethlehem, Pa. Yale has a big "payback" mentality (or should) from last year's pasting, and Lehigh is coming off their worst performance since the Yankee Stadium debacle three years ago. Although the season is early, this may well be a "must" win game for Lehigh in order to regain any confidence heading forward. I would think, Coen will have the Mountain Hawks ready. If not, his seat may become electronically plugged in.
