    Patriot League Pick 'em - Week 7

    It just gets curiouser and curiouser:

    Two teams are playing with fake defenses.
    Three teams have a fake offense.
    Two teams are a holy mess.
    The preseason worst continues to be first.
    And, as we speak, the Patriot League football trophy is being crated for shipment to Monmouth.

    But the calendar moves on and we enter the second half of the season where, eventually, we sill mercifully flush this toilet for the final time. Patriot League coaches can then move on to what they do best – passing out D-1 football scholarships to D-3 quality players.

    LAFAYETTE @ Harvard
    FORDHAM @ COLGATE
    GEORGETOWN @ LEHIGH
    HOLY CROSS @ Yale
    BUCKNELL @ Cornell

    Game of the Week: Fordham @ Colgate. No, wait, that pick is from my notes back in August. Oh well, what possible difference can it make for this bunch.

    Harvard

    Lehigh
    Yale
    Cornell
    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.

    Lafayette/Harvard is the game of the week because it is a fascinating study in contrasts. Is Harvard that bad? Is Lafayette for real? It will be a revealing game one way or another.

    I think I'm already going to pick a Bucknell win over Cornell specifically because it makes no sense.

    7-25 PL OOC record certainly supports your final sentence.

    LAFAYETTE @ Harvard – A team with no offense faces an Ivy enigma. The Pards have been blown out by every OOC foe so far. Why would it stop here?

    FORDHAM @ COLGATE – The Rams have proven that all of that offensive fire power is a myth. The ‘gate D should be enough in this one.

    GEORGETOWN @ LEHIGH – The Squawkineers are finally picking on someone their own size. I’m betting that even their non-D looks credible in this one.

    HOLY CROSS @ Yale It won’t matter which of the Jekyll & Hyde ‘saders show up for this one.

    BUCKNELL @ Cornell – Flipped a coin.

    Upgrading the OOC and abandonment of the PL by the Ivy was bound to produce this.

    Probably to a certain extent but we didnt do too well vs Ivies this year either.
    Given current landscape of Northeast football tougher OOCs a foregone conclusion. NEC teams are no longer cupcakes. Monmouth a full schollie Big South. Add in a selection of FBS games and it will be a while before PL adjusts .
