The last 48 hours have shown a lot about this Penn team. The Quakers have proved that they have grit.
Even after a close win over Big 5 rival Temple, the Quakers knew that they had to show up for conference play, and they did Friday night against Harvard.
Some nights, we see a team that struggles to make shots, plays poorly against conference opponents, and — especially this season — doesn't effectively defend three-point shots.
Unfortunately for the Red and Blue, the 75-55 defeat did not instill confidence in the team’s ability to perform against higher-caliber competition.
The Quakers put up 64 and 58 points in the two Princeton contests, which mark two of the three lowest totals they have put up all season.
Penn women's basketball has only played eight games — but its easy schedule suggests that we really don't know that much about this team.
Penn men’s basketball has played nine games. The Quakers have won five — two against power-conference teams in enemy territory as double-digit underdogs.
Penn women’s basketball fell to Duke in the early afternoon of Black Friday, but the Quakers showed enough to quench any suspicions that the team’s 4-0 start was a fluke.
Princeton running back Trey Gray was carted off in a stretcher after colliding with Penn running back Dante' Moore. The moment was more important than the game or the rivalry.
The Quakers executed in important situations time and time again, even when a relative lack of experience might have led one to expect otherwise.
Senior Nick Robinson won't be around next season, but junior Ryan Glover will, and he should have been given his moment to shine earlier than this Saturday's victory over Cornell.
I believe a bill to allow college athletes to endorse products is needed to bring equity to the college sports marketplace.
Second place would be fine for most programs in most years, but not these ones. Expectations are high, and justifiably so. At least one of these programs will win the conference.
The bar for success, having been lowered so demonstrably by the previous week’s outing at Columbia, was surpassed despite the final score.
Penn football has 18 Ivy League titles, tied for the most with Dartmouth. They will not win a 19th this season.
Paying college athletes isn't as simple as it sounds, though. First of all, where does the money come from? The way I see it, there are multiple ways players could be compensated, but each comes with its own caveat.
Beneath all of this lies a simple theoretical doctrine at the core of the economic system we’ve all been taught to love: capitalism’s insistence that the work you do must be compensated with a wage.
In their home and Ivy League opener, Penn football failed to muster much offense against Dartmouth before losing, 28-15.
The fact that the Red and Blue were in that position, where a single play could give them a great chance at a win, should be viewed as a positive moving forward.
I don’t think Penn football will be particularly good this year. I also hope they prove me wrong.
