Around the Ivy: A look at PENN


Last year: 6-4 (6-1 Ivy League)

About the Quakers: The Quakers come in as the preseason favorite to repeat as champions in a very deep Ivy League.

Penn returns 20 starters, including eight all-league players.

How fifth-year QB Billy Ragone responds to his ankle injury may be the biggest question heading into the season for Penn.

The former Cheshire star broke his ankle late last season. He’s been cleared to play but coach Al Bagnoli noted he just has to work on the psychological part of getting through the injury.

“We know we are going to have to take things slow and we know we are going to have to integrate him back into different pace than we normally would considering the injury that he had,” Bagnoli said. “But we also think, ultimately, he is going to be fine. We just have to do a really good job of preseason and those early games of getting comfortable and having confidence that the ankle can withstand the rigors of football." On the defensive side, Penn has some good, young talent with a handful of playmakers at LB and in the secondary.

Meador quit the team and then quit school. He couldn't handle the pressures of balancing academics and athletics. No point in crying over spilled milk.
