one year he had the top class in the country with Eddie Griffin. However, he completely lost control of the team and it ended with a brawl in the locker room.

I doubt the other Ivy league teams care about getting left behind instead of taking marginal students that wouldn't get in without basketball.

the problem is with the Ivy rules, Harvard's money and Harvard's power in the legislative process the others teams cannot adapt. Any recruit whose family makes less than $60K gets a full ride, anyone making less than $180,000 pays maybe 10%. In the Ivy until recently schools could not match aid offers but now there are a limited number of matches allowed. Harvard, since they can offer the most of any school in the Ivy, has blocked attempts to allow for unlimited matching.
In addition, Harvard has dropped their AI floor for basketball to the lowest level allowed and having more sports than any other program they are able to do that by hiking up the AI average of the 41 other sports (football has their own evaluation and admissions scale). The main reason Sydney Johnson left his alma mater, Princeton, was because Princeton could not drop their academic standards like Harvard had and could not keep up financially.
I agree, that's why I was said he can make the tournament almost every year staying at Harvard. Nigel responded saying he only has done it twice.
Well Tommy has Seton Hall and UM on his resume
Not a big margin for error. Only one team makes it. He didn't make it with Jeremy Lin.
If his ambition is to be a 14 seed the rest of his career, he should stay there I guess.
You said 80-90% of the time he would make it. I call BS.
Princeton usually has a good team
Princeton got a 5 seed in 1998, losing to 4 seed MSU in the second round after beating UNLV so a single digit seed can be done.
Penn made the Final Four one year ........
