The Wise Guys have installed Dartmouth as a 4.5 point favorite at home against Columbia Saturday.

Here's a question for you:

Assuming that home field is usually worth three points, when was the last time an undefeated Dartmouth team was considered 1.5 points better than Columbia on a neutral field?

Elsewhere, here's how the the offshore numbers people see the week:
Princeton is favored by 4 at Harvard
Yale is favored by 3.5 points at Penn
Cornell is a 7.5 point favorite at home against Brown 
Sacred Heart is a 3.5 point favorite at Robert Morris
Colgate is favored by 4 at Holy Cross
Stetson is a 1.5 point underdog at Morehead State

The Worcester Telegram caught up with Tom Gilmore, the longtime Dartmouth defensive coordinator let go as Holy Cross head coach on Sunday. Read the story HERE. Gilmore told the paper:
We didn’t win as many games as I wanted to in any season because anything less than undefeated was not a good season for me, but at the same time you look at all of the players I had the privilege to coach and one of the reasons I feel so strongly about Holy Cross, that I wanted to be at a place like Holy Cross, that I specifically wanted to be at Holy Cross, is because I know what it can do for a young person’s life and how it can be such a transformative experience.
