The Big Red are totally the clowns of the league. They're not even the best red-color-based team.
They're the first Ivy League team to win a first round game since probably Princeton or Penn I don't know how long ago. When was the last time Harvard won a first round game/made the NCAAs? I have no idea.
The last first round Ivy victory that I can remember is Princeton, as a 13th or 14th seed, beating UCLA in the mid-1990s. IIRC, UCLA was the defending national champion. It was awesome.
Edit: This is from the AP article on today's Cornell victory: "It also was the Ivy League's first victory since Princeton beat UNLV in 1998."
