Tom Beckett did many great things for Yale sports, some in the teeth of anti sports gale fomented by Rick Levin. I think he underestimated how tough the climb back to Ivy FB dominance would be, especially with Harvard firing on all cylinders (something that never happened during Yovicsin-Restic era).
To put Reno record in perspective, remember that Cozza went 4-5 in 1971, with a team that was picked for top echelon and that had two future NFL'ers, one a Pro Bowl pick. Many cries for Cozza's head after that one, but run of 3 Ivy crowns in '67-69 saved him. AND, by the way, in ten years after '71 disappointment, Yale beat H 7 times and won 6 Ivy crowns!
