Yes interesting. Sep 23 Harvard game, Sep 30 RI game and Nov 10 Fenway game v Dartmouth will likely be highlights. If there is good weather, the Fenway game could break some attendance records for Brown ….seems like the type of event Brown and Dartmouth alumni and students would come out for…
D-line will be a force. Dewey Jarvis seems to have blessed the Bears with his "4.5" graduation timing gift and is listed on the 2017 roster (does anyone know if that is certain?). If so, joining Jarvis will be Banfield, Varner and Heocht, making the D-Line quite a force in the Ivies. These guys will challenge any running game. D-backs lost some guys but Dovi and Coughlin will be strong. LBs return Isaiah Thompkins but will have some shoes to fill given departure of Twyman and Tylki
On offense...QB is a question as per tradition….Moreno not listed on 2017 roster. Duncan indeed provided a new look with his speed vs Columbia- could be a force. But most likely nod will be to Linta, at least to start with. The O-line had a lot of seniors in 2016. Montano started at center and Okwara saw a lot of playing time. If Winders is fully recovered he will also help- he was injured as a starter in game 1 last year. A lot to be filled on the RB and receiver side save Harriett – the ‘real deal’ and a likely an all-league pick this season. Other RBs Broome and Moodie have experience and had some v good games. Agree re Jake Hall. Of starting receivers, TE Casey, who had a good 2016, returns, but senior core of Jette, Swanky and Doles needs to be replaced. Prall, Whitney and Jackson were big contributors in 2016 and should fill in ably.
Also a good recruiting class- should contribute early.
