An inexplicable article posted to the Harvard Crimson’s sports blog on Monday claims Yale football is the Miami Heat of the Ivy League.

The author points out the similarities between Lebron James and former Yale quarterback Patrick Witt ’12, noting their shared ability to make headlines.

“With Lebron’s rapidly receding hairline in mind it’s clear that being the center of attention can come with its pressures,” the article states. “That’s something Yale QB Patrick Witt should be familiar with.”

The article also claims that Yale’s football team tends to vanish in the fourth quarter, just like the Heat. We can’t really argue with that, but we can say that Yale’s new coaching lineup includes several defected Cantabs, and that the Crimson should be ready for fire in fall 2012.
