Recently, venerable Yale art historian Vincent Scully ’40, MA ’47, GRD ’49 recounted for me a time long ago, when Yale vs. Harvard meant just as much as Michigan vs. Ohio State. Back then, he said, games would be played later in the afternoon, so when Yale would lose, the sky was inevitably a bluish »

Football strives for return to glory

September 1, 2006 • 0
It’s been an unusually long offseason for the Yale football team. The bitter taste of a heartbreaking — to put it mildly — triple-overtime loss to Harvard, followed by the defection of quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator Joel Lamb to that very same Crimson team, have made even the most optimistic Elis concerned that the »

An unusual story is unfolding on Clint Frank Field, the practice grounds for the Yale football team. It involves a senior, a junior, a sophomore and an absent freshman — respectively, the brain, the legs, the arm and the mystery.

M. lax secures first Ivy win

April 10, 2006 • 0
Trailing 8-3 and growing desperate midway through the third quarter, Brown midfielder Alex Buckley fired a shot on George Carafides ’08. The second-year netminder turned it aside with relative ease but found himself on his knees as attackman David Madeira, Brown’s leading goal scorer, wound up for a second attempt. Doing what any goalie would »

Noisemaking is usually the province of cheerleaders. But at Yale, it has become the mark of a successful men’s lacrosse team. The Bulldogs have a tradition of bellowing out the school’s fight song after Ivy League victories, but their Ancient Eight schedule thus far has been marred by a conspicuous silence.

Elis blow Game in triple-OT

November 28, 2005 • 0
Had The Game been called after regulation, one could imagine the front page of last Monday’s Harvard Crimson reading: “Harvard beats Yale, 24-24.” The Elis suffered a monumental collapse of 1968 proportions, blowing an 18-point second-half lead with minutes to go. But it was only after three historic overtimes and four hours of play that »
