Cornell knocked off High Point 4-1 today after dropping a 2-1 game in 2 OT at #18 Wake Forest in which the Red were down to 10 men after a red card. Cornell looked terrific today; High Point is no slouch, having made the NCAA’s last year and being their conference’s favorite this season.

Lots of talent for Cornell throughout the field, but especially in the attack and in the midfield. They play an entertaining aggressive style, and should be Ivy contenders (picked 2nd behind Yale in the preseason coaches’ poll).

looking for the highlights and i read the recap: Cornell was down to *9* men for the OT because of a pair of red cards that the recap does not otherwise comment on. Yikes.

I watched some of the High Point game and they do look good in part because High Point looked good. I stopped watching when we were up 2-1 and was very surprised to see that we pulled away so decisively.

Pulling this up and out of the football thread. With the 3-0 win at Penn, the Big Red have jumped to 19 in RPI. NINETEEN. Probably a function of the flaws in RPI as a metric but also incredible. Also probably greatly aided by playing two ACC teams in Syracuse (23 despite a 5-5 record because of their SOS) and Wake Forest.

The Penn win was an absolute smack down, as we dominated all over the field. Preseason favorite Yale has been mediocre, so that path is there for a league championship. But lots more soccer to play.

How does the ncaa tourney work? League champs and top so-and-so ranks in the RPI? Basically, do we have a legit chance to make the tourney as an at-large or would we need to win Ivy?

It’s a 48-team tournament with 24 automatic bids (every conference gets one). The top 16 seeds get first-round byes. The Ivies used to frequently get 2 teams in but I don’t think that’s happened recently.

Not that it matters for selection purposes, but the Big Red is now #24 in the Coaches' poll.

UTRGV is the result of the merger of UT Brownsville, where I worked from 2000-2002, and UT Pan-American. When I was at UTB, or more properly "The University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College", the sports teams were playing in the Junior College league via TSC's membership.

Hard to say. I do think we have a chance at at-large this year but I figure our trip through the ivy league will slowly whittle away at our SOS even as we win games and a single loss could be a deathblow. Not a lot of margin for error.

I remember the sports teams being the Scorpions (people even made some weird scorpion hand-gesture), which apparently is still TSC's mascot. In the brief period between the separation of UTB and TSC and the formation of UTRGV, UTB was (according to Wikipedia) the Ocelots, a name I never heard, since I haven't been to Brownsville since my Hurricane Sabbatical in 2005.

5-0 at halftime after an “Olympico” goal that curled in directly off a corner kick. An absolute beat down of a team that last week had a scoreless tie with preseason league favorite Yale.

We are damn good, folks.

We hung on 5-4. Coach Smith started the 2nd half with a number of reserves on the field, reasonably believing that a 5 goal lead would be plenty. But we got sloppy on the back end and Harvard scored a couple and gained confidence. At 5-3 Smith put back in our starters, but Harvard popped in one more in the last 10 minutes. We were able to hang on and avoid an all-time collapse.

Lessened learned, one hopes.

I watched a replay on ESPN+ of the first half of the match against Harvard this morning. The announcers noted that soccer and lax All-American, Bruce Arena ‘73, was present. He’s now GM or something for the New England Rebels, Revolution or whatever, and probably scouting our team. It’s a good sign.

Arena is sporting director and head coach of the Revolution.

While Arena may well have been scouting a few of our players, I think he was there primarily because it was a soccer alumni reunion.

I was at the game at Yale today. We were definitely the better team, but that døesn't always mean a win in soccer. We had sø many quality chances that didn't pan out. In the first half, there was a sequence following a Cornell corner kick where twice we beat the goalie only to have a Yale defender head the ball off the goal line. We had a shot go off the crossbar in the second half, and the Yale goalie made some great saves. Until they scored, Yale's only quality chance in the second half was a breakaway where their forward shot the ball just wide.
This really hurts our chances at the Ivy title, as it drops us into third behind undefeated Princeton and Yale, which has only a tie on its record. We have to win out, including beating Princeton, and hope that Yale picks up a loss or tie somewhere along the way and that way we might at least get a share of the Ivy title. Yale and Princeton haven't played yet, so at least one of those teams will get a loss or a possible tie for both. We should root for Princeton to beat Yale, and that way if we win our last four games, we at least clinch a share of the title.
This year's team is a lot of fun to watch, with some great speed and individual skills. Just wish we could have shot the ball a little better today.

Do the Ivies use the 3-1-0 point system, so that it takes three draws to equal a win?

i was going to say yes because that's what it looks like on the RPI rankings site, but it isn't clear from the ivyleague.com site. i hope so, because if it's 3 points for a win, if we win out and princeton and yale tie, we'd win the ivies.
