M. lax nearly knocks off No. 2 Albany

Early in the third quarter, with Albany clinging to a tenuous one-goal lead following a back-and-forth first half, Brett Queener raced the ball up field. Before reaching the midline he was slugged by Brendan Gibson ’10, Yale’s standout rookie attackman, inciting a man-up situation for the Great Danes. Twenty-six seconds later, Queener scored to double […]

Yale will triumph: Losing streak ancient history to young Elis

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 […]

Prof. designed Cardinals’ nest

On a recent Monday, Peter Eisenman stands at the mouth of Cardinals Stadium, the new home in Glendale, Ariz. that he designed for the NFL’s long-suffering franchise, and chatted with a few stadium employees. “Is everything running smoothly?” he asks the men who see his prized project on a daily basis. “Yeah, we took care […]


Football strives for return to glory

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 […]

Elis look for new QB

An unusual story is unfolding on Clint Frank Field, the practice grounds for the Yale football team.

All are vying for a single job — Yale starting quarterback, a title that has […]

M. lax secures first Ivy win

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 […]

Men’s lacrosse looks to end Ivy losing streak

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. Winless in three tries […]

M. hockey suffers ECACHL series sweep

Yale’s wild postseason ride came to an unceremonious end Saturday in Hanover, as Dartmouth (18-11-2) beat the men’s hockey team (10-20-3), 3-1, to complete its sweep of the best-of-three series. Just a week earlier, the Bulldogs were making history in Schenectady, with back-to-back overtime wins against Union, including an NCAA-record 141-minute contest that began at […]

As the incandescent star of Reggie Bush brightens to a global scale, the world’s most exciting athlete has become as elusive off the field as on. Still, when I learned a few months ago that he would be effectively falling into my lap last weekend — to accept the Walter Camp Football Foundation’s annual Player […]
