You're absolutely right. Thanks for the correction.

I think you and I define dominance differently. The 2011 Princeton team scored 215 points. Yes Cornell was in the 170s. But 215 is dominant. 160? That's average. ?
I guess I was struck by the degree to which Princeton exceeded pre-meet predictions, and the degree to which what was forecast as a tight meet was a blowout. But that, by itself, doesn't equal "dominance."
It seemed like Cornell had some key guys hors de combat--no Larry Gibson, no Max Hairston, M. Smith and Olloqui hurt, etc.--but I think the most they could have done was narrow the gap, not eliminate it.
What gets me is that Princeton graduated so much talent last spring, and some had suggested they'd have a tough row to hoe this year. Well, their current seniors performed handsomely, but they also got a *ton* of points from frosh/sophs and look very tough for the spring meet--and the future! Well done, PU--credit where it's due.
