We gave you our take on the Glen Miller debacle a couple of weeks ago, but today the New York Times weighed in on the ordeal. Thanks to the Gray Lady, we learned that from 1963 to 2007, Penn and/or Princeton won every Ivy League championship except for two. Whoa.
We also got this awesomely Wharton-y quote from Wharton sophomore (and team co-captain/Maccabi stud) Zack Rosen: “Not all C.E.O.’s work out, and that’s what the head coach of a basketball team is. With Coach Miller, there was a disconnect. For whatever reason, his formula just wasn’t working.”
Basically, Jerome Allen has a lot riding on his shoulders, but his stats are super legit and the boys love him. So for the first time in a long time, we’re pretty excited to see what they can do. Allen’s first game as interim head coach is Monday night versus Davidson, and will be broadcast on XPN starting at 7 p.m. Want to actually see some action? Tune into ESPN2 on New Year’s Eve to see the Quakers take on Duke at 6 p.m.
