Harvard Preview: Brown Bears (0-1) at Harvard Crimson (1-0)

Harvard proved last Saturday showed that the two year layoff did not affect them as they rolled over Georgetown 44-9. Sophomore Charlie Dean got the start for the Crimson and completed 10-19 passes for 94 yards and two touchdown passes. The start was surprising but Dean gives the Crimson more balance on offense because of his ability to push the ball down field vertically. Running back Aaron Shampklin ran all…

Tom Brady’s personal trainer/life coach/business partner/friend is looking for some attention. In an interview with the Boston Herald’s Karen Guregian, the NFL’s version of Rasputin made some pointed comments about Bill Belichick and Tom Brady’s relationship.

Boston College: Suddenly, there is quite a bit of anticipation for matchup with Missouri

Leading up to the game with Missouri on Saturday, there has suddenly become quite a bit of intrigue surrounding the game far beyond the novelty factor.

UMass: Minutemen looking to continue building on positives despite tough matchup with No. 17 Costal Carolina

Let’s get this out of the way upfront, UMass is not going to beat Costal Carolina this weekend. That’s not the point. Well, it is, obviously winning is always the main objective, but where UMass is at right now, I think everyone can agree continued progress and not getting blown out on Saturday is plenty. The Minutemen have shown signs of life on offense the last two weeks against Boston…
