For the same reason, a lot of us had to watch on closed-circuit TV in Sanders Theater.

Regrettably, I was there for all of it, including, of course, those horrid 42 seconds.

A logistical triumph by the Harvard Crimson: as fans walking back from the Stadium reached the Square, they we greeted by a screaming newspaper headline: "HARVARD BEATS YALE 29-29!"

I was there. The onside kick situation could not be considered a fumble. Yale's coaches did not put in a hands team up front, and the ball simply bounced off of one of the upfront linemen, who had tape on his hands. That being said, the kick was so perfect, hooking low about a foot off the ground, and just going the necessary 10 yards, that I think it would have been tough for any Bulldog to field.

Do you agree with Carm that the refs lost control of the game and were looking to throw their flags.

Or did a young coach simply lose control of the situation?

Or both? Or neither?

Was there anything Yale could have done once everything started going against them?

What about Dowling and Hill on defense as has been suggested over the years?

Concerning the last few minutes of the 29-29 contest, a Yale debacle if there ever was one, Bulldog asks very relevant questions. Let me summon long suppressed memories and try to respond over the weekend.

In the meantime, let us Ivy fans enjoy having two great teams going head to head in Tigertown!

With 4 minutes to go Yale was driving and 36-13 looked a lot more probable than 29-29.

Then, the last of those 6 fumbles. I think.

Was the onside kick recovery considered a fumble or a muff?
