Yale beat Harvard today for the Ivy League lacrosse tournament title, winning its fourth trophy in five years and levying some punishment to its hated rival along the way—as happened to the Crimson’s Joe Lang here in the fourth quarter.
Architects of the next financial crisis, right here.
The Ivy League is the only D-1 conference that doesn’t have a conference tournament. But when Yale and Harvard split the season series and each finished with 11-3 conference records, a one-game playoff for the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA tournament was in order. Needing a neutral site, the conference…
Who would have expected a smart play from the punter of an Ivy League school? You should all be shocked.
ESPN's College GameDay crew is in Cambridge this morning for today's decisive Yale-Harvard game, and the Crimson snooty-snoots brought out their best for this morning's show. Here's the top signs that aired on TV today:
Last week, The New York Times told a new story about how Yale quarterback Patrick Witt's candidacy for a Rhodes Scholarship ended. While the public was following the drama of Witt declining his Rhodes interview to play in the Harvard-Yale game, the Times reported, the Rhodes Trust and Yale had suspended his candidacy…

We'll now call it the Tailgate because three women there got run over by a U-Haul,…
