News and Notes: Thursday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Thursday...

  • The Daily Pennsylvanian's Zach Klitzman boasts that he predicted a Penn win over Cornell during the 2009-2010 season. While Klitzman proved correct, the win itself proved to have very little meaning in the grand scheme of the season for either team as Cornell stormed through the Ivy League to its third consecutive conference title and advanced to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament, ending the year with a No. 17 national ranking. Klitzman's more meaningful predictions, “it’s easy to see Cornell going 11-3 and Penn going 10-4," proved to be way off mark.
  • The Daily Pennsylvanian grids the highlights and lowlights of Penn's basketball season which includes references to Cornell.
  • The Heights, the Boston College student newspaper declares that Steve Donahue's "honeymoon period" is over.
  • The Cornell Daily Sun offers a drinking game based on the Cornell-Kentucky Sweet Sixteen game. Thanks to DVR, one can play it over and over.

I think Klitzman picks Penn to beat Cornell every time they play, so it's difficult to take his predictions seriously.

10-4 though! he was pretty close

Welcome to Boston, Coach D.
Toto ain't in Kansas, and the Don ain't in Ithaca anymore.
They should have appreciation for the type of program that the Don will run....then again, we're talking about Beantown.
