Around the Ivies: Big Weekend in the Big Apple

At its worst, Ivy League football is anything else. Welcome to literally the worst case scenario: Princeton and Dartmouth battling for a crown in the Bronx’s abomination also known as Yankee Stadium.

Around the Ivies: Tussle at the Top, Columbia Visits

For Dartmouth and Princeton, this is easily the biggest game of the season. Each team is undefeated overall and in league play, and they stand head and shoulders above the competition. Whichever squad prevails sets itself up nicely to take the conference championship.

Ivy League Squads Rock and Roll Into Week Two

In the spirit of sports gambling nearing complete legalization in the United States, we here at The Crimson have adapted. We’re giving you, the readers, a pick and a point spread on each of these games as opposed to an exact score prediction (which, let’s face it, was a complete shot in the dark anyway). Read our picks for the week.

AROUND THE IVIES: First Week of Football Season Means A Clean Slate

Storylines abound as the first week of Ivy League football draws near. Harvard looks to overcome the graduation of its defensive backfield, Columbia tries to surmount its fan base and Cornell distances itself from Ithaca. These are our picks for this week's set of games.

Around the Ivies: Men's Basketball Looks to Continue Streak

Harvard sits in first place in the Ivy League and has won its last four conference contests, a far cry from its 1-5 mark to begin Ancient Eight play in 2015-2016. Our picks heading into this weekend's Ivy League match ups:

Around the Ivies: Harvard Looks to Beat—And Scout—Competition

The sports section of the Yale Daily News—a newspaper, we think—recently published a piece with the following title—By the Numbers: Counting Yale’s Losses. We’re well aware counting isn’t necessarily a strong suit for students down in New Haven, but losing isn’t the kind of thing you’d want to advertise either.

Around the Ivies: Men's Basketball hosts Columbia, Cornell

With the Cornell men’s basketball team trekking to Cambridge for a Saturday evening showdown with the Crimson, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the 2009-2010 Big Red team that helped put Ivy League basketball back into the national conversation.

AROUND THE IVIES: Football Will Now Actually Take Princeton Seriously

We’ve officially hit the midway point of the 2016 season. From here on out, it’s all Ivy League games, all the time. On one hand, it’s going to be nice to see some rivalry games soon, especially the most storied rivalry in the entire league: Columbia-Cornell. Wait, you were going to say Harvard-Yale? Fair, but that matchup crosses state lines, and the teams’ names don’t form an alliteration. See? Not as exciting.

Bouncing Back

Offensive linesmen senior Kyle Adams and junior Larry Allen prepare to snap the ball during Harvard’s game against Cornell on October 8. The team will need to get back its offensive rhythm to match Princeton’s high-octane offense, as well as stay diligent on defense, in order to leave Princeton, N.J. with a win.

Around the Ivies: Prospective Point Guard Logjam Presents Question for Amaker

Harvard’s contest-ending 30-7 run at Cornell, capped by a game-winning floater from freshman Tommy McCarthy with six seconds left, did not save a season; it brought up a question: What, exactly, are the Crimson to do next year with the rookie?

Mixed Responses to Caitlyn Jenner, Fossil Fuels, and Mixers Gone Awry

First of all: are you following the Ivy League campus story? That’s probably the best place to get news about what is happening in and around the elite schools of the North East, but if you haven’t been keeping up, Flyby is here to fill you in.

AROUND THE IVIES: Deep Conference Kicks Off Conference Play

Though the drama may not be as high yet in the early stages of this year’s Ivy season, the high quality of play in the Ancient Eight makes up for it.

AROUND THE IVIES: For Football, It All Comes Down to This

For Harvard, which is in sole possession of second place in the Ivy League standings, a Big Green win coupled with a Crimson victory on Saturday will mean a share of the championship.

The quick and dirty about what's been going on around the Ancient Eight.

Ivy League Title Still Up for Grabs

Given that, it’s hard for me to even call Saturday’s contest a game. It’s even harder for me to get excited about covering it.
