After this year's Ivy Media Poll was released, I received a few questions from readers about preseason perception versus end of season reality.

Looking at the past 25 years of Ivy polls (minus 1991, 1995 and 1997, which are unavailable), I concluded that the media has not accurately predicted the top three finishers once in that time frame!

Last year was the first year since 1999-00 that the top two turned out as projected.

However, the prior five Ivy champs have all been properly prognosticated.

The Princeton athletic department, the Ivy League office, the Trentonian and the Trenton Times have more on the Tigers' new role as frontrunner for the 2010-11 Ivy crown.

Thanks to some much-appreciated digging by the Ivy League office, the three missing media polls that they could not find two years ago have been uncovered.

Now I have all the polls from 1985-2010...

...not a single correctly-predicited top three order of finish in the lot!
