O-line may prove key to title

It isn’t a glorious place to play. It doesn’t always get recognized by the media or fans. But this weekend, the offensive line might be the unit that preserves Yale’s championship hopes. When the Bulldogs (7-1, 5-0 Ivy) take on the Tigers (7-1, 4-1) tomorrow, the offensive linemen will be responsible for clearing the way […]

Tennis is sharp at Farnsworth

Split between Virginia and New Jersey, the men’s tennis team showcased its depth and opened the fall season with several strong performances.

United harriers come in second

As teammates who usually eat dinner, go out on weekends, and even play Halo 2 together, it makes sense that the men’s cross country runners race together as well.

Yale should get a shot at past gridiron glory

As a fan of college football in general and of Yale football in particular, I have tried to educate myself about the storied history of the blue and white. And it goes beyond Walter Camp 1880, the man who by 1892 had transformed rugby into American football. And yet, if you had not done research […]

Perfecting the punt is no easy task

Compared to the esoteric art of hitting a baseball or swinging a golf club, punting a football may seem almost routine.

Even to their teammates, punters’ contributions may often seem to matter less than throwing a tight spiral […]

Young w. harriers hope to beat injuries

Running can become boring, even for those who love it — like the members of the women’s cross country team. That was why waterskiing, inner tubing, and relaxing on a beach in Vermont were just what the Elis needed for their preseason. With leisure time mixed in with preseason running, the Bulldogs bonded as a […]

Crimson and Quakers top Ivy preseason poll

Ivy League football fans were hardly holding their breath when the results of the conference’s preseason media poll were released last month. The Quakers were ranked first with 120 points, edging the Crimson by one point after splitting the 16 first-place votes. But since the two teams have won a combined seven Ivy League titles […]
