Old Blue and Remember It Well have it just right. To me, this was the sad side effect from an overly developed obsession with beating a rival. We dismissed a perfectly fine head coach because of recent losses to one school. But this is obsessing over one tree when any meaningful evaluation of any head coach must consider the entire forest.

There's too much noise in any given two or three games against any opponent, especially against a strong program, when a mistake is likely to be costly. Yale must start focussing on whether a coach has the ship pointed in the right direction, not whether it happens to dodge one particular iceberg a year.

The exaggerated obsession with Harvard also has other negative side effects. You think Tom Williams tries the fake punt on 4th-and-22 against Dartmouth? No way. That was solely and entirely a result of *HIS* obsession with stamping his personal mark on the history of the rivalry.
