Ha! You may in fact be correct. But I sense from all the comments on this issue that the majority of the posters do in fact feel sorry for the Harvard players in terms of the result of that game. Maybe not feeling sorry for Harvard, the institution.

Also, I highly doubt Ivy players wear their rings that often - especially not to a job interview. I think most would wear their rings to alumni events. GG may be able to weigh in on how often he wears his ring.

I am on the fence whether Murphy should have had the rings unscripted with “9-1”. But I do understand why he did it.

TC, you make a good point. Your response is better and more nuanced than my original post.

Yes, I think that a lot of observers would have some sympathy, perhaps a great deal of sympathy for Harvard *players*. Indeed, I feel for them inasmuch as they played well in an intense game and had three apparently game-winning two-point conversions taken off the scoreboard for a variety of reasons. That's an emotional roller coaster beyond the usual game-ending theatrics.

So you are right.

Further, I would have even more sympathy, understanding and perhaps even go over to the other side of the issue if somebody, somewhere could find language which supersedes Article 7.

And I doubt that any Harvard players will be explaining Article 7 to folks who inquire about their rings.

But in the current entertainment vernacular, it probably makes them feel pretty, and witty, and bright.

I wore my first ring quite often when I received it my sophomore spring. After the novelty wore off, and I got two others, I only wore them for special Dartmouth-related occasions and stuff like job interviews where I thought it would be a good conversation piece (i.e., I knew that the interviewer liked football).

But I think most guys have either lost them or put them in a drawer and left them there. Even at our championship team reunions (all three teams), only a handful of guys wear their rings.

That said, it was really cool to see that picture on BGA a few weeks back of Zach and Griff Lehman (father and son) pose with their rings with big smiles on their faces.
