The Boston Herald's John "Jocko" Connolly recently sat down with Harvard's Tim Murphy, the Thomas Stephenson Family Head Coach for Harvard Football. Connolly covers his annual "Five Questions" ahead of the Crimson's opening game tomorrow at Holy Cross.
BOSTON, Mass. - The Ivy League features high-caliber quarterbacks this season, led by Penn signal-caller Billy Ragone, who amassed 1,382 total yards last year. The Quakers are the preseason pick to win the league. If they do, they'd be the first team to three-peat since Dartmouth did it from 1990-92. Harvard has been tabbed for second place, but the Crimson clearly eye better things.
"I have never seen so many good quarterbacks in our league as this year. Not even close," said Harvard coach Tim Murphy. "Then, if everybody has a solid quarterback, a lot of it is going to be who has the outstanding quarterback, solid offense and plays great defense."
"I think that there are five teams, on paper, legitimately capable of winning the Ivy championship," Murphy said. "Let's leave it at that."
