Harvard Athletics in the Spotlight

Are Athletics Overshadowing The Academy?

Since the formation of the Ivy League 59 years ago, the Ancient Eight have consistently struggled to balance athletic success and its impact on academics. These critics raise a question: Has Harvard overstepped the line?

Football Resists Quaker Comeback, Wins 38-30

Harvard football coach Tim Murphy thought his Crimson had put Penn away.


Princeton in Prime Position for Ivy Football Title

The Tigers have quickly gone from pretender (1-9 in 2011), to contender (3rd in the Ivy League in 2012), to undisputed king. It shouldn’t be that easy.


NOTEBOOK: Hot Start Might Be Football’s Best

None of the individual stats are impressive. No Harvard football player had 60 receiving yards, 80 rushing yards, or 200 passing yards Saturday at Columbia. Junior quarterback Conner Hempel completed less than 60 percent of his passes, went a second straight week without a touchdown pass, and threw his fifth interception of the year. But then you look at the score.


Ivy League Title Still Up for Grabs

Given that, it’s hard for me to even call Saturday’s contest a game. It’s even harder for me to get excited about covering it.

It was wacky. It was wild. But in the end, it was another win for the Harvard football team.


Surprise! Harvard Football Dominant Once Again

It’s easy to forget today, but for a moment in the third quarter Saturday, Brown breathed life. The Bears had just marched 80 yards in less than four minutes. Brown running back John Spooney finished the drive with a 34-yard touchdown scamper that brought the visitors within 11, 31-20. There was plenty of time left.
