Haley Does it Again

What's he Smoking?

Every year, former (?) Princeton employee Craig Haley comes out with his preseason predictions. For the last several years he has been nominally in the employ of TSN, the Sports Network.

He almost always goes with the conventional wisdom with the exception of his predictions for one team. You guessed it, Princeton.

This year's magnum opus follows the same pattern. He picks Harvard first, Penn second, Cornell third, blah blah blah. But he picks Princeton 6th, finishing ahead of Dartmouth and Columbia.

Haley is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts. He finishes his piece on PU with the incredible line:  " It seems time for the Tigers program to win more often. At least that's what everybody thinks." 

Actually, NO ONE thinks that. Princeton is picked last in every other poll. Craig really needs to cut the umbilical cord with Princeton if he ever wants to be taken seriously.

If Coach M wants Childress to play more DE, then who are the tackles ??? .... my guess is that Napier or Padilla will see lots of playing time ....

At first I thought that he was unaware that Dibilio was out for the season. But nope-he accounted for that. Inexplicable.
