All Hail the Big Red

    Far above Cayuga's waters, Cornell clinched its first Ivy League title since the 1987-1988 season. At present, the Big Red is the only team in the NCAA tourney. Which probably is our only chance to win.

    So where does Cornell end up in the bracket seeding? I don't know much about them. Are they facing a play-in game, possibly?

    Nah -- I'm guessing a 13 or so. They didn't look that awful when they lost to Duke or 'Cuse. Of course, no real quality wins.

    And all along I thought Cornell was a member of the Patriot League.

    Oh wait, that's an improvement!

    One of the most interesting things about Cornell is that its core is comprised mostly of sophomores, including three starters and two immediately off the bench. One of the starters is Ryan Wittman, the son of former NBA player and current T-wolves coach Randy Wittman.
    Penn will be better next season after a down year but the Big Red is here to stay.
    All hail the Big Red indeed. It gave Duke fits in late December and is a much better defensive team two months later.
    Given the right first-round matchup ....

    When was the last time Penn or Princeton didn't win the Ivy League? it seems like they win it every year.

    Congrats Cornell.

    Kidding aside, I see Cornell as a 15 against a Kansas / Wisconsin /Tennessee /Texas. Sorry, but other than maybe (just maybe) UW, notafuckingchance.

    I think that Penn or Princeton has been the conference's rep in the tourney for the past 20 years, but there may have been other schools which were co-champs who lost the playoff game for the bid.

    At one point when I was at Cornell, they not won a road game at Penn or Princeton in over 20 years.

    Brown has gotten in at least once (maybe '89, too lazy to look it up).

    I'm not hailing Big Red ever. Unless it's to go to Jenny Craig.
  12. The Ivies? In the play-in?
    My dear young man, it simply is not done.
