PENN AT COLUMBIA
We think the reason that we’re so bad at these is because a lot of the Saturday games are pretty contingent on what happens Friday. We usually don’t get Friday right, so Saturday is pretty much a coin toss when you consider how bad at this we are.
In all seriousness though, if Penn wins on Friday and Columbia inevitably takes an L to the Tigers, then a win here would ice the four seed for Penn.
It sounds almost sacrilegious to say the Quakers smell blood so we’ll just say Penn men’s basketball has a strong incentive to win this one.
YALE AT DARTMOUTH
BROWN AT HARVARD
Last week we discovered that the Columbia Spectator quite endearingly refers to Columbia as the ‘Light Blue’ despite its savage mascot.
This week we realized the Brown isn’t far behind, lovingly referring to its mascot as Bruno—we’re not 100 percent sure the Quaker smelling blood thing was sacrilegious but calling a bear Bruno most definitely is.
When Brown moves past this, then maybe it can move past Harvard too.
