I like Coach Henderson's sentiments on how last season ended and being raring to go for next season. That doesn't mean that the final weekend doesn't still sting!

Yes indeed, Stuart, our lad Randy sure does need a fact-checker: "first three days as president-elect in 2007".

How well I remember the 2007 Presidential race.......

Some additional names of interest on the US Maccabiah roster.

On the "Open" Men's team. Cornell's Eitan Chermerinski, Penn Alum Zack Rosen and Columbia's Alex Rosenberg.

The Masters 45+ team includes a Jerry Simon and I can only guess that is the former Penn player.

Given all the outside assumptions about how big a step backward Princeton will take next season, it would be great to sting Harvard and shock the world.

The end of the season will sting Mitch, the staff, the players and Tiger fans for a long, long time. The fact that with three and then two games left we "controlled our fate" is what makes the denouement so unbearable. At the end of last season most Ivy observers more or less conceded the 2012-13 title to Harvard. When Curry and Case were suspended the Tigers' fortunes brightened considerably. While everyone expected Chambers to be a great player eventually his development into an immediate All-Ivy and POY contender has been remarkable. I do not foresee "a big step backward" next year, but I must say that 10 wins in an improving League (for a third consecutive year) would be a successful season. Whether that will be enough to sting Harvard remains, of course, unknown. It's never fair to expect substantial contributions from the freshmen, but I really hope one or more of them arrives ready to step in right away.
