If you hadn't noticed, Cornell's men's soccer team is 8-2 and ranked #24 in the country (and #1 in the northeast). Today they moved to 2-0 in the Ivy league with a 4-2 road win over Harvard. Last week they beat Penn 1-0 in OT in Ithaca. So far the only losses were on the road to Syracuse and CSUN. Syracuse is unranked but #9 in RPI* and they just beat #1 Wake Forest 2-0.

Next game is a tough one - Tuesday night at #20 Colgate. (Why are we #1 in the Northeast? I don't know. Separate polls?) Three common opponents so far. We beat Lehigh 3-2; Colgate lost 1-0. We beat Binghamton 2-0, Colgate tied 1-1. We lost to Syracuse 2-0; Colgate tied 1-1. Colgate's best result is a 1-1 tie at #5 Denver but at 5-1-4 they're #12 in RPI.*

The women's team is having a rough year. 1-8-1 and 0-3 in the Ivies. I watched some of today's game and Harvard winning only 2-0 was a surprise (but also a credit to the Cornell goalie who has to stand on her head to keep it close and does.)

Speaking of ESPN+ they don't seem to archive every game and it's infuriating. It's especially infuriating because when the games are at Harvard. the Crimson video team cuts the highlight package like North Korea. In a 4-2 loss, the highlights were the 2 Harvard goals and a bunch of Harvard saves INCLUDING a save that ricocheted off the crossbar and went directly to Charles Touche who headed it in to complete a hat trick. The highlight cut off as he was leaning in to the ball. lol

* small sample size alert; we're #25 in RPI.

Men’s soccer has been a pleasure to watch. Coach Smith is building a nice program. I believe 16 of the 21 players are freshmen or sophomores, so it appears the best is yet to come.

Women’s soccer and field hockey are pretty bad this year.

Before this game our rank moved up to #18; Colgate fell to the bottom of Others Receiving Votes with a tie against American.

Does the band play at home games? That'd be a sign men's soccer has arrived.

Some. Yes. But that's been true on and off for a long time now.

Ugh. Cornell scores in the fifth minute but gives up a goal in the 45th minute and another in OT to lose to Yale 2-1.

Cornell had the better of the play, but Yale capitalized when they had the chances

I just watched the highlight video and Cornell put a nice shot off the crossbar with ~12 minutes left and headed the rebound just over the bar. Brutal.

The loss drops Cornell to 31 in RPI. Still early in the Ivy season to know anything about who will get the autobid.
