Perhaps it is time for Harvard to move on to the big time. Obviously, the playing field is no longer level. For 16 years Harvard has not done less than 7-3. During that stretch they have won in excess of 80% of their games. I don't believe that any other IL team has won as much as 65%. The above information says exactly why. Simply put, they are recruiting at a different level. My guess is that many Division 1 teams do not have as many players in the pros as Harvard. For one team to have that kind of talent, simply isn't good for the league. The same, of course, is true in basketball. There will be those who say that H is raising the level of football in the league and that is a good thing. Yes, that is a good thing, but not at the cost of destroying the competitiveness of the league. Please note, I have not accused H of doing anything wrong or deceitful. I have no proof so I can not say. My guess is that with their name recognition, money, and desire to be dominant, the results follow. But I also know that for some 45 years prior to the modern era, H won their share but did not dominate and the league went along fine. Now, who knows? As for raising the standard of other teams, possible but no other team can say they are H.

If Harvard played some other OOC schedules as the other Ivy teams did in that stretch, it is doubtful they would have gotten eight victories every year.

Harvard can "up" its game anytime it wants. Here's the UNH football office number -- 603-862-1852. I'm sure Coach McDonnell will take Murphy's call and be interested setting up a game with the Crimson.

Stetson's number LOL, I guess he could just text is buddy buddy. Actually I think Murphy should strengthen his non ivy schedule with the likes of Maine Umass UNH and maybe UConn. I think they would be very competitive with most if not all

For awhile I was toying with the idea of going down for the Stetson game, but we have wedding down there in Oct so I changed my mind

UNH has certainly been "solid" enough to beat Dartmouth pretty regularly in the last 40 years. So "regularly" in fact that Dartmouth has now dropped them from the schedule for the next four years!


Harvard has never played Stetson.

I gave you a pat on the back and you throw a red herring into the mix. Tell me the last time Harvard beat UNH. they did play William and Mary in 1992

UNH has been a quality program for a lot longer than that.

But Harvard doesn't appear to be willing to play a CAA team better than URI.

Currently they (Stetson) are one of the worst teams in our FCS "loser" category.

If H played some high level OOC teams, it is quite likely their 16 year record would not be so glowing. But I have no doubt it would still be excellent. It is a matter of talent. H has plenty of division 1 talent. In the sub division, no other team has talent to match H. Of Course, the teams OOC will have the advantage of having played more games and practiced longer, so I am sure they would get their share of wins. But over the long haul, scheduling such opponents will only make H stronger for their conference run. Sigh. I think H is chasing Stanford, and if that is their goal, let them play Stanford.
