Crippled by injuries but invigorated by the scent of an Ivy League championship, the undefeated Harvard football team will travel to New Hampshire today in preparation for tomorrow's showdown with Dartmouth, the pre-season favorite for the title.
Halfback Paul Scheper is definitely out, as is tight end Linus O'Donnell, still battling the mumps. Fullback Jim Callinan, a crucial factor in coach Joe Restic's offensive plans, remains questionable with a bruised shoulder. Halfback Paul Connors has a slight leg pull but should play; linebacker Brad Stinn seems to have recovered sufficiently from his concussion suffered in last week's 20-12 victory over Cornell.
Restic will need all the troops he can muster for tomorrow's long sold out game, the Crimson's once-every-four-years journey to the New Hampshire boonies. Big Green coach Joe Yukica will have an enormously fired-up squad--and a notoriously rowdy crowd--working for him. Not only is Saturday the Dartmouth homecoming, and not only have the Big Green lost three straight non-league games after a win over Penn, but this year is the 100th anniversary of Dartmouth football, an event Hanoverians desparately want to commemorate with a championship.
What will it be like for the Crimson up north? "It's a zoo," says safety Mike Jacobs.
