Cornell 2018 football schedule
Sep 15 TBA    @ Delaware 
Sep 22        Yale (Homecoming) 
Sep 29        Sacred Heart 
Oct 07        Harvard
Oct 13        @ Colgate
Oct 20        @ Brown
Oct 27        @ Princeton 
Nov 02 6:00   Penn (ESPN) (Friday night)
Nov 10        Dartmouth
Nov 17        @ Columbia
In order to provide a more interesting and competitive end to the Ivy League football season, Penn-Princeton and Cornell-Columbia are now the season-ending games. Translation: The odds of Penn-Princeton having an effect on the championship race is more dramatic than Princeton-Columbia (virtually guaranteed Princeton win) and to a lesser extent Cornell-Penn. It makes sense for the good of the league.

Looks as if one Ivy (or Ivy vs. non) game a week will be Friday at 7 or 6 pm, on one of the ESPN networks.

One nice thing for NY-NJ-Philadelphia alumni: The at-Princeton and at-Penn games are in alternating years. In 2018 we'll be at Princeton for the second straight year and host Penn for the second straight year.

Nov 17        @ Columbia 
Nov 24        @ MSG vs. Harvard (hockey)
In even years past (2016-2014, there has been a fantastic Cornell-in-NYC weekend when we played Columbia around Nov. 10, with tailgates, class receptions the night before, the Big Red Band march down Fifth AVenue after the game, and dining/drinking after that, plus some pre-reunion rah-rah cocktail parties for (this year) the classes of 4s and 9s. Five years ago it was a wonderland warm, mid-60s Friday night and our class had a rooftop reception.

Probably ain't gonna happen this year. You have to decide where to expend your energies. Now, all these events if they happen are going to compete with Red Hot Hockey at MSG seven days later, this time the non-league game vs. Harvard. It was already bad enough when the two were within 2 or 3 weeks. If the football weekend events happen, they're going to damp attendance at hockey, or vice versa, among alumni who are more socializers than sports fanatics.

Nah, having a year-tagged thread for everything is getting monotonous. I'm going to willy-nilly create game threads just to break this up, bill.

For anyone that has Sirius XM radio, tonight's (7/16) edition of LATE HITS on the NFL Channel 88 (7 pm - 11 pm) is focusing on NFL players (past and present) from the IVY League.

JC Tretter was on a 9 pm and Gil Brandt has a few stories about Ed Marinaro. The show replays around 3 am, and is available "on demand" for those of you with the App.

I just happened to see a kid tweet that he's received an offer from Cornell football. In his twitter handle he includes that he has 4.0 GPA and a 21 on the ACT. That's the 56th percentile. No offense intended, but it seems hard to believe anyone with a 21 ACT would be admitted to Cornell these days.

Sure they haven't re-scored it again?

Edit: nah, 21 is shitty.

I mean, it is football, though... whistle

Some HS have gone to a 5.0 grading system. Freaked me out when my daughter brought home a 4.7 in Oregon.

Certainly the merits of standardized tests are debatable. But the fact is that Cornell factors test scores into is admissions decisions, and Cornell's average ACT for accepted students is a 32.

Maybe the kid got a 32 and slid one digit left on the phone keyboard. It's Twitter, it's not like anybody cares about correctness over there.

This reminds me of my fifth year which was in Ann Arbor. At one point in the year a member of the admissions committee asked my C.U. buddies and me what was going on with a woman applicant who had a higher than 4.0 in Chem. E. We had to fess up to the 4.3 system in place at our alma mater - which of course made us look 0.3 less in his eyes.

Hey, if it wasn't for the little 0.3 I'd have never gotten a 4.0 my last semester (I got an A+ in one course in my major which offset an A- in one of my electives).

Every semester I received (won't say earned!) an A+, I also had an A- in a class with one more credit hour, so no 4.0s for me. :(
