Going into the 2015 Ivy League football season, I expected a few things: Penn would be better than its underachieving final year under Al Bagnoli.

It finally happened.

Villanova's star quarterback John Robertson didn’t play against the Quakers on Thursday night. And it just didn’t matter.

As a first year coach, there is reason to be nervous about a lot of things. But delivering a successful snap to the quarterback isn't necessarily one of them.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. — They are what we thought they were. Coming into its first game of the season, no one thought Penn football would be flawless.

Anyone who says numbers never lie didn’t watch Penn’s offense last season. A year ago, then-sophomore quarterback Alek Torgerson was near the top of not only the Ivy League, but the entire Football Championship Subdivision in multiple passing categories.

Wenik | Learning to say "yes"

“No.” Penn women’s soccer coach Darren Ambrose didn’t have much to say to me when I asked him what changed in the second half of his team’s 8-0 win over NJIT, the first game I ever covered (they only scored three goals in the final 45 minutes).

There’s really only one way to describe the end of Penn baseball’s season: Frustrating.
04/30/15 3:27am
Hopefully there's more of this on the way. As the 2014-15 academic year draws to a close, so too do the seasons for Penn Athletics' spring sports.

Scheduling big opponents used to be a staple of the Quakers’ slate.

Towards the end of spring break, the basketball teams -- and respective fan bases -- from Harvard and Yale gathered at the Palestra for the Ivy League's one game playoff.

Exactly one year ago today, Penn baseball stood tied atop the Lou Gehrig Division heading into a four-game series against Columbia. Some outside the program viewed their success as unexpected, shocking even.

I should start by coming clean: Baseball is my favorite sport.

There’s no place like home. Penn basketball has been desperately searching for a victory for exactly a month now, losing five straight games on the road with only a brief return to the Palestra in mid-February.

A couple months ago, at the beginning of the season, Penn’s underclassmen bore a striking resemblance to wannabe New Yorkers.
