League Coaches Predict Harvard Will Earn Title

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Despite question marks at quarter-back and on defense and despite Coach John Yovicsin's cautions predictions, polls of three groups of supposed experts on Ivy League football named Harvard as the probable league winner.

Those polled were Ivy League coaches, Ivy sports information directors (DSI), and sportswriters and sportscasters who have covered the league teams.

The three teams picked to finish closest to the Crimson are Dartmouth, Princeton, and Penn. Each of the three was rated second in one of the polls, and none of the trio was picked to finish lower than fourth.

The reliability of such polls is perhaps indicated by Harvard's first-place finish last year. The Crimson was expected to finish fourth or fifth.
