A very tough week for both PL teams and prognosticators everywhere, save for maybe here in CROSSPORTS world. A plethora of 4-3's, 3-4's and even a couple 2-5's. Cardman529 was the only one unblemished this week and gets a coupon for Everything But Anchovies in Hanover, NH (when they reopen....closed sadly this past Spring).
The slate for Week 4 is much less daunting as we return to the world of the Ivies, NEC in general:
UPenn (maybe this will be the week Lehigh turns it on, but I can't bet on that) Columbia Colgate (they have to get back on track...and Furman has yet to win this year) Bucknell (in a very close game) Princeton Fordham (thanks for mentioning this one sader1970 and hc87) HOLY CROSS (and I really hope I don't jinx the Crusaders)

UPenn (Keep thinking Lehigh might turn it around...maybe they can't) Columbia (toss-up IMHO) Colgate (should be a relatively easy win) Fordham (should be a relatively easy win) Bucknell (SHU looked awful v Stony Brook but Bucknell didn't look much better v William and Mary) Princeton HC
(Bonus pick: URI - off a victory over Harvard - defeats a still-reeling UNH)

Lehigh - Circle the Wagons Time in Bethlehem Columbia - Lions quietly start 2-0, we may be back to seeing the Georgetown of old Gate - After losing a nail-biter to Richmond and looking overmatched at UB, the Raiders win this one, decided within a FG. Fordham - A lock if Edmonds plays; if not, I think the Rams barely hold on 31-30. Sacred Heart - Stony Brook (who crushed SHU) may end up being a top 20 team. Bucknell stinks but at least they get to play Lafayette and Georgetown this year. Princeton - Have they hit bottom in Easton? Holy Cross - Pistol Pete beat Dartmouth @ night in 2013 during his frosh year coming out party. De ja vu as a fifth year senior, methinks.
I am getting a bit nervous that no one has picked Dartmouth...as if we are getting set up for a fall. It could be a big "pay back" game for HC, but I will feel better if HC gets the first score (a TD).
