Tristan Reed, GSAS

FM: Who do you think is going to win this season?

TR: Pro? I have no idea. For college, I hear Stanford is pretty good, but I think they’ve been untested.

FM:  Your favorite team and why you’re supporting them:

TR: UCLA, where I went to college, but they’re not very good at all.

FM:  Which team is your sleeper pick?

TR: What’s a sleeper pick?

FM:  What do you think about the Harvard football team?

TR: I don’t know if they’re good or not. I hope that they beat Yale.

FM:  Have you had any football players in your class?

TR: I heard there are a lot in the economics department, but I haven’t had the pleasure to teach them.

FM:  What did you think about the lockout this summer?

TR: Wasn’t it the NBA? Of course basketball players should have higher salaries. No, I’m just kidding.

Shehryar R. Sheikh ’15

FM:  What’s your general perception about football?

SRS: I hate that it’s a rip-off of rugby, and it doesn’t actually use the foot enough to warrant the use of the word ‘foot’ in its name.

FM:  Who do you think is going to win this season?

SRS: If Harvard’s playing, Harvard will win. I don’t actually know what the other teams are, but go Harvard!

FM:  Do you watch the NFL at all?

SRS: The what? That was a no.

FM: What will American football look like in 15 years?

SRS: Pretty much the same.

FM: Do you ever see yourself becoming a football fan?

SRS: Honestly, no ... .

Anneli L. Tostar ’15 and Lilli Beard ’15

FM: What’s your general perception about football?

LB: I know a lot of the players here, but I haven’t seen any football happening.

ALT: I tend to pay more attention to the players themselves than to the game.

FM: Your favorite team and why you’re supporting them:

ALT: The one closest to me is the Seahawks, but they’re not very good. I know the 49ers though.

FM:  MVP pick?

LB: Brian. That’s my friend’s roommate.

FM: What will American football look like in 15 years?

LB: Maybe with more technology. More problems with supplements.

ALT: People will get injured more easily.

Ralph ‘Tre’ Hunt III ’15

FM: What’s your general perception about football?

TH: Football is a great sport. It’s good for bringing all of Harvard together to support the team. I don’t play myself but I’ve played a little bit in the past, and it’s a really fun game.

FM: Who do you think is going to win this season?

TH: Just based off of my intuition, I think Harvard’s going to have a great season.

FM: Your favorite team and why you’re supporting them:

TH: The Cowboys. When I was younger, my uncle bought me a Cowboys jersey. He was playing for the team at the time so I decided that I’d support the team.

FM: MVP pick?

TH: I’d have to say Ryan in Grays East. He looks like he’s really good and I’ve seen him do a little bit of stuff.

FM:  What do you think about Roger Goodell?

TH: I think he’s a pretty good commissioner of the NFL.

FM: What will American football look like in 15 years?

TH: I think the players will be making a lot more money. It’ll still be a very high-paced game, maybe even more high-paced than it is now. People will watch it more, and it’ll stay really popular.
