Slate Tips Off Tonight

Georgetown at Princeton is being televised live on ESPNU tonight at 7.
The Dartmouth offers up a preview of tomorrow's Dartmouth game at Holy Cross.

The offshore oddsmakers have called the Dartmouth-Holy Cross game a "pick 'em," which is exactly what some of us expected.

The Sports Network's Ivy League picks:
Holy Cross over Dartmouth
Harvard over Brown
Cornell over Yale
Villanova over Penn
Georgetown over Princeton
Fordham over Columbia
Monmouth over Sacred Heart
Butler over Campbell
TSN also has a capsule look at Harvard's game at Brown and picks the Crimson, 28-17.
If you get NBC Sports Channel (which we don't)  you can watch Yale at Cornell tomorrow at 1 and Harvard at Brown at 4:30. There's also a regional broadcast in central Massachusetts of Dartmouth-Holy Cross on Charter TV3.
From last night's Green Alert Premium Q&A with Chris Wilkerson, Dartmouth's assistant head coach and former defensive coordinator at San Jose State:

What surprised you most about Dartmouth football players? The talent level. I wasn’t sure coming to the Ivy League how talented the kids would be after coaching Division I-A football. We have kids on our roster that are talented enough to play Bowl Championship Subdivision football. There are kids on every roster in this league who can do that.
Coming up on Premium tonight: this week's Fearful Forecast and a Holy Cross preview. Tomorrow night: a Dartmouth-Holy Cross game story and sidebar. Sunday: a Holy Cross follow. Monday: The Optimist and The Pessimist.
