FOOTBALL TEAM OVERRATED.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Whoever wrote the article on the Harvard football team which we are reprinting in part today has certainly placed before us a formidable array of evidence, stated with so much emphasis and assurance that we must give it serious thought. The CRIMSON, in hope of preventing any overconfidence, has twice pointed out the dangers in the football situation this fall, though we have never taken quite so strong a stand as "Stadium." But when the case has been presented with intimate knowledge such as "Stadium" must have had, we cannot keep from joining in the sentiment he has expressed. If it is answered that circumstances differ from year to year, we reply that it is true, but we repeat that the evidence so ably compiled is sufficient to make us fearful. We cannot get around the fact that Yale would tie or lose a dozen other games to win from Harvard; nor can we say that Harvard would not do the same to win from Yale. Our football hopes are centered on that contest, there is no denying it. The CRIMSON is behind the team as it never was before and believes that the same thing may be said of the entire College. But at the same time we must admit the gloomy truth of "Stadium's" words.
