Cubs In The Series? Anything Can Happen

It's not over until it's over.
In case you are wondering, Dartmouth still has a narrow, winding and bumpy road to the Ivy League championship. Strange as it sounds, there could still be a four-way tie for the title, or even a five-way tie at 4-3.
For what it's worth, no team has ever won a share with three losses – but it's mathematically doable.
Dartmouth, of course, would have to win out to end up at 4-3 in the Ivy League.
If you are a Big Green fan you should be rooting not just for Dartmouth this week but for Brown to beat Penn and Cornell to knock off Princeton.
Told you it was a narrow, winding and bumpy road . . .
How the Wise Guys see this week:
Harvard is favored by 4.5 over Dartmouth
Penn is the pick by 19 points over Brown
Princeton is an 8.5 point favorite over Cornell
Yale and Columbia is a pick 'em
Also . . .
New Hampshire is the pick by 4.5 over Stony Brook
Towson is favored by 3.5 over Delaware
Colgate is 9.5 over Holy Cross
