Al Bagnoli has led a charmed life. But as the second-winningest coach (146 games) in Ivy history embarks on his 23d and final season as Penn's football coach Saturday with a game at Jacksonville - three weeks after the Dolphins began the season - he has has a bone to pick. League rules mandate that Ivy schools just play 10 games, meaning Ivy teams always begin the season two and sometimes three weeks after their opponents have played their first game. "It's a problem that we start so late," Bagnoli said.

When Sam Ivy played high school ball for Webster Groves in St. Louis, he wasn't able to make the obligatory summer-camp showcase rounds. His mother died while he was in the 10th grade, and his time and energy then became channeled into such things as trying to keep a roof over his family and food in the refrigerator. But despite spending his summers working in his father's janitorial business instead of trying to make a name for himself on the court, he wound up at Wake Forest.

He's got the perfect name for ESPN's Sports Center. When the videotape shows Wake Forest's Sam Ivy taking it strong to the hole, can't you just hear Chris Berman calling him "Poison"? Last night, in the opening game of the Jostens Classic at the Palestra, Ivy certainly was poison to Canisius. The 6-foot-7, 225-pound power forward exploded for a career-high 34 points to lead the Demon Deacons to an 82-72 victory. The win sent Wake Forest (3-2) into tonight's 9:15 championship game against Villanova, an 83-80 winner over La Salle in last night's second game.

A herd of about 45 goats is expected to descend upon a small woodland park in Mount Holly this week to munch away the invasive English ivy that is choking the forest floor. The goats will be released on the 10-acre site to help themselves to free food - which includes poison ivy and small saplings - while their owners, Grazing Green Goats of Hummelstown, Pa., will be paid between $8,000 and $10,000, depending on whether it takes the animals three or four weeks to lick the plate clean.

IT WAS this kind of night at the Palestra: Six minutes into the second half, Princeton had missed exactly six shots, was shooting nearly 74 percent and trailed Penn by nine points. If there was doubt about the Ivy challenger to Harvard this season, Penn's performance in the 225th game against its archrival strongly suggested that it will be the team that plays on 33rd Street. On the night he passed his coach on his school's all-time scoring list, Penn senior Zack Rosen played point guard as if he were conducting an orchestra - moving the ball, the defenders, his teammates and himself to a rhythm only he felt.

THE FIRST Ivy League football champion (Yale) was officially crowned in 1956. Since then only one team has won three consecutive solo titles. That was Penn, from 1984-86 (after the Quakers also had shared the top spot in both 1982 and '83). But the 1985 team lost once (at Harvard) in league play. Now, Al Bagnoli's guys are in position to either match or surpass that. The Quakers have gone unbeaten in the Ivies the last 2 years. And with a lot back, they've been picked to finish first once again.

Penn has won the last three Ivy basketball titles, five of the last six and seven of the last nine. The Quakers have finished lower than second once since 1991. That was a decade ago. But they aren't favored to four-peat. Or even finish runner-up. That's what happens when you have to replace the two-time Ivy Player of the Year (Ibrahim Jaaber), another first-team All-Big 5 guy (Mark Zoller) and another 3-year starter (Steve Danley). During the offseason they lost Tommy McMahon, who likely would have started, due to hip surgery.

WHEN I WAS in my second year of law school, my grandmother died unexpectedly of a massive heart attack in the backseat of my mother's car. She was just 70 and it was a crushing blow. I was unusually close to Mamie, given that I was the goody two shoes first grandchild who practically grew up in her West Philly house and loved her, sometimes, more than my disciplinarian parental units. Her death, 29 years ago today, came in the middle of first semester exams, and my first thought was "I can't do this.

IT TOOK 5 years, but it finally hit Mike McLaughlin. For years growing up, the Philadelphia native and Father Judge High graduate came to the hallowed halls on South 33rd Street and watched basketball games with his family. The game took him to Division II Holy Family, where his 1,710 points still rank fifth in school history. He played after college for a bit with the Washington Generals and Harlem Globetrotters, playing in more than 50 countries. He went on to coach the women's team at his alma mater for 14 seasons, where he piled up 407 wins vs. 61 losses.

One big question about Ivy League basketball: Is Harvard at all vulnerable? Coming off a second consecutive season in which the Crimson won a game in the NCAA tournament, they are the unanimous pick in the preseason Ivy media poll to win the Ancient Eight and make a fourth straight NCAA appearance. As strong as the Ivy hopes to be - and Princeton coach Mitch Henderson said it could potentially be as strong as it's been in his time as a coach or player - there's no reason to pick against Tommy Amaker's squad despite the loss of several players who helped take Harvard's program to another level.

PENN HAS BEEN in this spot before. That's what can happen when you open up at least 2 weeks after everyone else each year and Villanova is your annual second obstacle. So the Quakers have good reason why they haven't started 2-0 since 2003, when they put together their third unbeaten season under Al Bagnoli. It's not an excuse, merely reality. Now, for the third time in 4 years and sixth in the last 8, they are 0-2. Even though they did lead by 12 points in the fourth quarter in their opener at Jacksonville, which had already played twice.

One by one, the Ivy League football coaches took turns praising the coaching career that Al Bagnoli has fashioned in 22 seasons at Penn. Bagnoli will retire at the end of the season, and his counterparts paid tribute Tuesday in a conference call with reporters. "The pleasure has been all mine," said Bagnoli, whose Quakers will open their final season under him against Jacksonville on Sept. 20. "It's been 22 great years, and hopefully we'll have a 23d great year. " The Quakers, winners of three of the last five Ivy titles, were picked to finish fourth in the league by a panel of reporters who cover the team.

Pat Gusoff had what Umar Mycka calls "a yard full of trouble" at her Bustleton home. It wasn't so much the honeysuckle, mulberries, bittersweet, chokecherries, and English ivy, although they can be a nasty business. No, it was all those shiny, three-leaf shoots of Toxicodendron radicans, the dreaded poison ivy. Mycka knows this North American scourge intimately from four decades of work as a gardener/groundskeeper at the Philadelphia Zoo. Since 2008, he has also had a small business (idontwantpoisonivy.com)

The goats are not coming. That is, the 70 goats from Maryland that were supposed to arrive in Mount Holly this week to eat the ivy that is smothering trees and shrubs at a woodland park affectionately known as the Mount. Normally, the herd indiscriminately consumes leaves, twigs, and other things found in nature. But it won't make a dent in the thick carpet of ivy that has spread across the Mount, says Brian Knox, owner of Eco-Goats, which bills itself as an environmentally friendly vegetation control service.

THE PENN women's basketball team boarded its bus from Princeton just after 8 p.m. Tuesday. Forty-eight miles stood between them and their desired destination. Music was blasting. They were dancing in the aisles. This is not typical of a bus ride back from a game, but the Quakers already had reached their destination - an Ivy League championship. Senior Alyssa Baron, who scored 23 points in the clinching game at Princeton, capped her 4 years with that elusive title. Those 4 years started with honesty from her soon-to-be head coach Mike McLaughlin.
