Another year in and it keeps getting tougher to make the cut. You need a QB to be at least 75 overall to even be considered. GTown. QB Dan Jones is now a 79 with a good, not great, arm and 90 speed. Too bad Qwon and Crumb can't swap QBs. 70 backup. Dusty Morse is the indisputable leader of the unit and one of the best players in the conference w 90 ovr, 92 speed, 94 acc, 90 stiff arm and 96 stamina. 72/71 backing him up. 66 FB. Delaware. QB AJ Robinson is back for his sophomore effort (80 ovr, 86 speed, 92 agi, 86 power, 82 accuracy, 91 elusiveness) and he's joined by a 78 frosh backup with 90 arm strength. They're by far the best QB tandem in the league, too bad you can only play one QB at a time (Where's our A-11 offense at EA?). 83 HB Holman has 92 speed with 74/72 backups. 67 FB. Brown. We all know about 82 ovr Running Water. It's a good thing this wagon burner was able to dodge serious injury while taking his 69 sacks last year. 70 backup, 78 frosh RB/ATH and 79 and 76 backing him up is a big improvement. 64 FB. Yale. 84 ovr Matt Poland (89 speed, 86 acc, 84 arm str, 87 accuracy, 83 brktkl, 85 elu) and a 74 backup lead this unit. 74/70/68 RBs and a 69 freshman FB. Highest rated QB in the league but we have to work on his fumbles (7 last year including one that clinched the game for Brown) The RBs being a little weak pushed me down the list. Harvard. Nothing great but a nice unit (t.w.s.s.) top to bottom. 75 and 71 QBs. 77, 73 and 70 RBs with good speed. And the reason Harvard got the nod...73 FB. Cornell. Crumb has an 80 ovr QB, Jamaal Weeks, with 70 speed and 93 throw accuracy that will run the ball 800 times this season and throw 80. 75/72/72 RBs, one w 92 speed and the others w 74. 72 frosh FB puts Cornell in this group, though. Receivers TEs are included Yale. 78/73/72/71/71, speeds of 92/96/91/91/85, respectively, makes Yale the fastest WR corpse in the league which includes Andre Grant, a 6'7 guy. Frosh TE Joe Mangum comes in at 74 with 75 speed at 6'3 254. Great TE depth with 2nd and 3rd string TEs both being 72 overall. Georgetown. 83/79/76/70/70, speeds are 85/88/84/87/86 respectively. Slow receivers which hurts Qwon's running game since safeties don't need to stay back. However, the top 3 guys have at least 80 catching so they should keep the chains moving. The TEs are why the Hoyas are so high: 81 w 78 speed at 6'5 and 75 w 77 speed at 6'1. 3rd TE is a 64. Harvard. You know a Fever ran team will leave behind some good receiver talent. They go 75/73/72/69/66 and average 91 speed and include a 6'7 guy. Frosh TE is 73 ovr w 80 speed at 6'4. 71 backup with 82 speed. Those speedy TEs really bolster this group. Bucknell. 74/75/70/69/69 with the 74 guy being Bo Vogel (95 speed), Season 1's Returner of the Year. 73 TE with 77 speed at 6'6. 66 backup. Brown. 78/75/72/70/69 at WR with an average speed of 89. 69/66 at TE. Delaware. 76/72/71/71/71. The 4th and 5th guy have 94 speed. 69 frosh TE w 64 backup. Offensive Line You're offensive line is only as good as it's weakest player so it's hard to make this list with anyone below a 70, but I'm ok with one as long as he's young. LT/LG/C/RG/RT///Reserves Columbia. 72/83/86/79/76///74/73/72/71/71. Columbia's 2nd team Oline is better than most starters in the Ivy. Delaware. 68/82/85/80/81///77/74. The reserves are both Centers so I guess he'll be playing one of them at Tackle. Georgetown. 79/76/80/77/79///75/75. This unit is talented and deep but young. They'll grow into the top line next year. Princeton. 78/85/81/72/74///71/71. Another good SR line. Yale. 78/72/74/76/82///69/67. My weakest position and the only one who isn't a SR is my C. Still, no real holes and RT Zach Pressley changing positions from DT to get on the field is a feel-good story. Expect a big drop off next year. Penn. 78/79/80/72/72///72/72. The left side is all SRs and there's a big drop off from there since their former coach thought "QB and RB are the only two positions that matter". Cornell. 77/82/73/68/75///65/65. Crumb has got one more year of good SR oline play before his own recruits fully kick in. Defensive Line DE/DE/DT/DT///DEPTH(if any worthy of note). Might be the worst position in the conference. Yale. 81/78/72/NA///74/72. 3 monster DE recruits are the story here, all starting. 78 ovr DE Terrance Williams is downgraded to a 72 overall when sliding inside but keeps his DE explosiveness. Georgetown. 81/75/73/72///74/72. Almost as good and as young as the guys at Yale, this is another great crop of Dlinemen. It'll be interesting to see these two units battle it out as they mature. Penn. 79/74/74/72///. They barely make this list. This is really about Yale and Georgetown. Linebackers OLB/OLB/MLB/MLB/Depth. Yale. 78/79/73/69///69/68. 81, 87, 86 and 86 speeds, respectively, with All-Conference 91 speed Justin "Butterface" Dockery playing situationally. This corps is definitely built to stop the spread. Brown. 71/81/80/NA///70/65. The two studs who will be on the field all the time have adequate speed at 80 and 81 speed, but are no track stars. The 71 overall freshman LOLB Tomlinson will primarily use his 87 speed to carry MLB Carl Kruz' pads back to the locker room since Nik will run a lot of Nickel. If Tomlinson was rated a bit higher or if one of the studs had some real speed, Brown would have the top unit here. Georgetown. 78/72/78/NA///71/71. 82 and 78 speed on the outside while MLB Cody Schultz is a monster 88 speed. Defensive Backs FS/SS/CB/CB/CB///Depth. Yale. 80/81/76/72/70///73. 5 new stud freshmen starters. All CBs have a good combination of technique and athleticism except for one CB who is just a step slow at 85 but doesn't start. Most talented and deepest secondary. Delaware. 76/72/80/76/69///70. Stud freshman FS Nathan Parsons has LB size and hitting power and adequate cover ability. Best starting corners of the group. Georgetown. 85/77/72/68/68///72/72. Pair of SR safeties. Corners? Shits weak. Best FS though. Harvard. 77/71/77/72/72///71/70. Nice, well rounded group that can easily go dime without too many problems. Deepest at corner in the league. Bucknell. 83/73/73/68/65///71. Fantastic SR FS Brandon Johnson (96 speed, 98 acc, 83 tackle) masks Steamers shitty CBs. Special Teams Kicker rating/Punter rating is listed first. It doesn't show me the return man so I just looked at the fastest guy on each team and guessed. Georgetown. 81/90. Best legs in the Ivies (and I aint talking about Cindy). And throw in another 77 K. No return threat except for his star RB Dusty Morse. That doesn't stop Qwon from letting him field returns. I can't wait for that injury. Harvard. 78/88. 77 freshman K too. Plenty of speed on this team, especially the 3rd string HB w 95. Columbia. 86/78. There are two RBs with 94 speed so one will probably get his chance. Yale. 77/78. Returner of the Year Jon McIntyre returns his 96 speed. Penn. 85/70. Backup RB has 92 speed. Brown. 73/82. No real return threat yet. Delaware. 78/70. Also another 75 kicker. 94 speed WR.
