Brown will play football at Harvard Saturday night, but I’m sure the mind games began last Saturday after Harvard’s 41-10 romp at Rhode Island and Brown’s frustrating 20-16 loss at home to Bryant.
Make no mistake about it. Every fall, Harvard gets in the head of the Brown football team, as if some mist floats to College Hill from Harvard Square and billions of H cells infiltrate the brains of Bears. Cells with stats, records, results. Gridiron DNA.
