Seeing your backup lead the team to a come-from-behind victory. After limping off the field in crutches in the second quarter, Harvard captain Neil Rose gave way to sophomore Ryan Fitzpatrick, who proceeded to throw for a pair of touchdowns and run for a mere 131 yards. the team to a come-from-behind victory.
WORST REWARD FOR SHOWING UP AT BROWN STADIUM ON TIME: Listening to the national anthem. Brown showcased an 11-year old kid who struggled with the hard-to-sing song. Don’t they have a cappella groups in Providence?
WORST WAY TO FINALLY BE CREDITED AS A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR ON A CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM:
Unofficially and a year later, after receiving only a “Minor H” despite quarterbacking two victories the previous season. While Harvard coach Tim Murphy rightly hailed Fitzpatrick as a key cog in last year’s undefeated run on Saturday, the sophomore has never received formal recognition as a full-fledged member of the 2001 squad since he played in a limited number of games. How’s that for a technicality?
BEST IMITATION OF TOM BRADY IN THE SNOW GAME:
By Brown QB Kyle Slager, whose apparent fumble was ruled as an incomplete pass, keeping Brown’s fourth-quarter drive alive.
BEST REASON TO APPRECIATE ANDERS BLEWETT:
He’s better than Brown placekicker Paul Christian, who missed his only two point-after tries in Saturday’s contest. Blewett, despite missing 23-yard FG attempt, is a perfect six-for-six on PATs this season.
