Let's face it, most of us have already given up on New Year resolutions. For some, that could have come as early as 12:01 when you swore you'd give up drinking, or maybe a few weeks later when hitting the gym every day just got too hard. In most cases resolutions are lucky to make it back to Penn intact.

While Mr. Silcox certainly provides the majority of the content here on The Buzz, the rest of the staff has big plans for a coup d'etat.
When my colleague Ari Seifter celebrated what was quantifiably one of the best fall sports seasons for Penn on record, he mentioned that the success was in part due to several freshman stepping up into big roles just days or weeks into their college careers.
I covered last year's game at Villanova and was in attendance last night. This was certainly not the same Villanova offense. Last year, the Wildcats ran all over the Quakers and it was at times embarrassing to watch. This year, Villanova went through stagnant stretches and failed to take advantage of its size and athleticism in the frontcourt. But some credit has to go to Penn for dictating the pace by slowing it down, standing strong on the interior, and holding the Wildcats to a season-low 65 points. The Quakers actually held a 22-18 advantage in points in the paint.
You may have seen an article on this in the New York Times this weekend, but a company called StatSheet has been writing software programs that aim to make sportswriters obsolete (uh oh).
Without further ado, part 2 of our special expose series on freshman guard Miles Cartwright, thanks to a top-secret source close to the situation:
It was an extremely busy and mostly fruitful weekend for the Quakers, so here's a roundup of what's in this muggy Monday's DP: Penn football tops Yale to remain atop Ivy League. The Quakers' defense came up big in the win. Fans, and for the first time players, camped out at the Palestra in the annual Line event, despite what some called a 'disappointing' turnout. Volleyball won both Ivy matches for a third straight weekend, remaining tied with Princeton in first place. Men's soccer recorded another shutout (surprise!), taking down Yale. Women's soccer also shut out the Bulldogs in a 1-0 win. Field Hockey took a 10-0 loss to Yale, snapping a modest two-game winning streak. If the week is any more action packed than this weekend, we're going to need a bigger server.
In addition to the changes that the NFL is making to reduce head trauma, there is currently a lot of research going on to help solve the issues of concussions in sports. But some of the research doesn't come from the sports world at all.
Here's the videos of the post-game press conferences after Penn's victory over Columbia today.

Sophomore point guard Malcolm Washington, son of Denzel, chose to leave the Penn men's basketball team, according to a Penn basketball source.
It's been a slow week, and Danny Monckton is yet to respond to my dunk contest challenge, so here's a tidbit from one of my favorite sports blogs, the DC Sports Bog.
In a move that had been speculated in the rumor mill over the past few weeks, the Journal Inquirer is reporting that ex-Penn basketball head coach Glen Miller will be hired as the director of basketball administration at the University of Connecticut. The official announcement should come in the next day or two, the article states, meaning Miller will have gone unemployed for about five months since his firing from Penn in December of last year.
It's been a rumor for some time now, but now it's official. Toni Kukoc's son Marin Kukoc has committed to Penn. Dick Jerardi writes in today's Daily News: "Penn got a commitment from Marin Kukoc, Toni's son from Chicago. He is just the latest in what is shaping up as a terrific recruiting class."
Hey everyone, it's Lauren Plotnick and you will be following along live with me as I cover the Penn's Ivy Opener at Yale.
Nobody ever accused us at The Buzz of being avid book readers, so I apologize that we're a little late with this.
In an exciting event for me as an aspiring journalist, the New York Times used some quotes from my preview of tonight's Penn-Temple matchup in a post about the game on their college sports blog. Given the apparent popularity of some of the comments these guys made, I figured I'd share some other worthwhile items from my interviews that weren't in the story. Also after the jump, an update on two of Penn's recruits.
The volleyball team's dominance has been well-documented here on The Buzz, but here's one more interesting tidbit on just how historic this season was.
