It's No Secret: Tigers Are the Ones to Beat


But with an inexperienced quarterback, expectCoach Steve Tosches to do more running this yearbehind tailbacks Keith Elias and Erick Hamilton,widely regarded as the best backfield in theleague.

The Princeton defense is especially formidable,returning seven starters--including first teamAll-Ivy linebacker Aaron Harris--from a unit thatwas second in both scoring defense and yardageallowed in the Ivy League last year.

This year, the biggest problem for them will beat free safety, where the graduation of MarvinWilliams will leave a gap in a secondary thatallowed just four passing touchdowns. On thedefensive line, Princeton graduated two playersbut is still solid with All-Ivy players at theother two positions: junior defensive end BrianKazan and junior tackle Reggie Harris.

Junior Jim Renna, a spot player last year, willmove into one tackle position while Tosches hasnot yet decided who will take over the seconddefensive end position.

The loss of Marvin Williams and the lack of adominant successor in the secondary could be theTigers' soft spot.


But don't cry for Princeton. They're still thefavorite to win it all.
