PENN AT HARVARD
This might just be the championship matchup at the Palestra come March.
With Penn’s 17-point blowout of Princeton and with the Crimson’s loss to Columbia last week, it’s clear that Penn is the team to beat in conference this season. With Bryce Aiken potentially sidelined again for Harvard and definitely not close to fully healthy, it would be hard to make a case for the Crimson. Good for the Quakers.
CORNELL AT YALE
We don’t know who names things out in Ithaca but whoever decided to call Cornell’s cheer squad the “Big Red Cheerleaders” clearly didn’t run it by anyone else.
More than anything, it sounds like the kind of phrase an American would use to describe a communist supporter at the height of the Cold War.
The Berlin Wall might’ve fallen, but we doubt Yale will.
