VOICE OF OPTIMISM: Princeton University football head coach Bob Surace makes a point during the program’s recently-held media day.

With some of the injured stars returning and other players having gained valuable experience last year in their stead, Surace believes the Tigers have the depth to be an Ivy League title contender this fall.
