But this week is not for dwelling on the past. It’s Harvard-Yale week. The Game. The supernatural forces of football dare not get involved in tradition.
The Crimson’s commander has led teams to victory on the gridiron, but he has also shaped many lives of young men.
As I sing one song for my Old Kentucky Home far away, half of the Ancient Eight’s seniors will sing one final song at their football homes. For this reason, and possibly having to do with the multiple lopsided matchups, I will be picking every single home team this week.
This is the league of parity, and as long as you are not named Brown, you should never feel like you are out of a game. This league is all about chaos, and after a few years of dominating superpowers and underforming bottom-feeders, the Ancient Eight is chaotic once again. Ivy League parity is back and better than ever.
For the second straight week, Harvard football ended its game in heartbreak. The Crimson dropped yet another walk-off contest, this time to Columbia in overtime as the Lions intercepted Harvard late to seal the game, 17-10.
Playing on home turf, a dominating defensive performance ended in a loss as the Big Green secured a wild Hail Mary as the clock expired. Both squads will be heading to New York this weekend. The Big Apple offers a possible Ivy League crown for Dartmouth and a bounce-back game for Harvard.
In the wildest football game of the season, a desperation Hail Mary was tipped into the hands of a Dartmouth receiver to beat the buzzer and provide the undefeated Big Green with a stunning 9-6 victory as the clock expired.
Yesterday, the NCAA delivered bombshell news that it would begin to allow players to profit off of their likenesses. Yesterday, we tried to answer a simple yet complex question: what does this mean for Harvard athletes? I, however, have an even better question: what does this mean for the college journalists that cover these athletes?
In an unprecedented move, the leaders of the NCAA unanimously approved to begin the process of altering current rules so that college athletes can profit off of their names, images, and likenesses. What will it mean for Harvard?
In this week’s matchup between two of the Ivy League’s top teams, much of the contest was decided by all-important third downs. While the squads combined for a low 21.4 percent conversion rate in the first half, in later key situations Princeton won the edge and, ultimately, the game.
We are finally there. That familiar feeling has finally emerged from its slumber, exciting fans once again. This week marks the return of two separate yet important things that have recently been missing from my life: Emperor Palpatine to the Star Wars universe, and exclusive Ivy League conference games to college football.
The Crimson wasted no time in taking control of the game after an initial stumble to race ahead to an early lead that it would never relinquish. Boosted by defensive takeaways and 24 consecutive points in the first 20 minutes of the contest, Harvard swiftly retook the driver’s seat and spoiled a well-attended Holy Cross homecoming game, 31-21.
This Tuesday, Felicity Huffman started her prison sentence for her role in the college admissions scandal. The celebrity was sentenced to only 14 days in prison. When she emerges from her brief stay behind bars, Ivy League football will be fully in conference play.
Fresh off a decisive victory against Howard, Harvard will face an Ivy League foe this weekend, and other Ivy League football news.
Howard and Harvard football have been linked for over a century. On Saturday, however, they will finally truly meet on the gridiron for the first time in history.
