Odd Move

Mason Williams

We often get excited as Ivy football fans when a decent player from a big FBS program transfers to an Ivy. Not only do we start dreaming of a dominant player coming to our league, but we know we don't have to wait because by transferring down a division from FBS to FCS, the player is immediately eligible to play. When a player goes up from FCS to FBS, he has to sit out a season.

That's why transfers going the other way, that is Ivy players transferring to FBS programs, are so rare. 

But it appears Penn's 1st Team All Ivy DB Mason Williams is going to do just that after announcing that he is leaving the school just before the start of his junior year. 

Penn's defense is still stacked with a good number of top players, but to lose a guy who was already the best in the league at his position as a sophomore is a big deal. 

Those who are putting in Penn as champions in their 2017 predictions may have to rethink that.

I don't think we need to shed any crocodile tears here. Penn is the team I for one love to hate.
