    FINAL: Penn 27, Brown 30

    With the wind swirling, Morgan missed his 35-yard attempt, but Penn picked the worst possible time to commit an offsides penalty.


    Poll watching

    Four Ivy League teams are receiving votes in this week's Sports Network Top 25 poll.

    No. 22 Harvard (432 points), obvious choice.


    Olympic cheerleading

    Over my three years of writing for The Daily Pennsylvanian and its summer counterpart, I've been to enough press conferences to know what they're about.

    So when I covered the Philadelphia 2016 Olympic bid press conference at 30th Street Station (not the best choice for acoustics, by the way), I knew what I was getting into.

    This would not be an honest assessment of the city's chances for landing the U.S.


    Globalization

    Congratulations are certainly due to 2001 Brown graduate Cory Gibbs, who was selected to the 23-man United States World Cup soccer team.

    Ivies in the NFL

    Congrats to Cornell offensive lineman Kevin Boothe, who was taken in the sixth round (176th overall pick) in yesterday's NFL draft by the Oakland Raiders.

    Today, a pair of Princeton Tigers -- defensive back Jay McCareins (Arizona Cardinals) and tight end Jon Dekker (Pittsburgh Steelers) -- joined him, at least for now, on NFL rosters.


    Back to normal

    From the moment he sat down in the press room today, Tyree Washington made it clear that he had not forgotten about last year's 4x400-meter relay -- especially the last 150 or so meters -- in the USA vs.

    Pure speed

    There's really only one event for which the winner can claim the title 'fastest man in the world.' That's the 100-meter dash.

    Ignorance and redemption

    Remember last year when the USA dropped the baton to let the Jamaicans win the 4x400-meter USA vs. the World relay?

    Wallace Spearmon doesn't.

    At yesterday's USA vs.


    One for the home team

    Penn's Sam Shepard got a big cheer from the crowd as he barely beat out Princeton's Richard Stewart down the stretch in the college men's Heptagonal 4x400.

    Day two begins

    For the second day in a row, the first race of the day started before the scheduled time. That's a good thing if you're helping coordinate the Penn Relays schedule, because things always get delayed at some point.
