Ivy's collective early struggles

Lande Spottswood's preview of the season opener calls attention to the Ivy's collective early season struggles:

It has been a rough start to the season for the Ivy squads already in play. Led by Penn (0-5), the Ivy League has combined to open the year 0-16 through yesterday….Defending Ivy champion Princeton (0-2) opened its season with a pair of one-run losses to Richmond last weekend, but kicks its schedule into high gear with 10 games in 10 days over its Southern spring break swing beginning this afternoon at William and Mary….Defending Red Rolfe division champ Dartmouth won’t open its season until March 17 after a pair of games against Lafayette scheduled for last weekend were cancelled due to inclement weather.

Which isn't terribly surprising given the number of games most of these other teams have already played.

One nice thing about these dome games: No Florida rainouts means these games will definitely happen.
