Anyone see this?

I didn't know Tommy Lee Jones was an Olineman for Harvard.

Very good documentary about the game.

Fun to watch an old school college game from start to finish (edited for length of course).

Check it out.

29-29????

McNabb was the QB and that's why he doesn't know that there are ties in the NFL :)

A little background on the title:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harvard_Beats_Yale_29-29

As the last seconds ticked down, Harvard, coached by John Yovicsin, tied the game, scoring 16 points in the final 42 seconds to tie Yale.[8][1] The Harvard Crimson declared victory with a famous headline, "Harvard Beats Yale 29-29",[1][8] providing the title for Rafferty’s documentary.

I feel like Tommie Lee Jones is probably more suited for a zone blocking scheme.

Everybody know that John Wayne and Ward Bond played at USC together?

Here's Wayne:

Calvin Hill went to the Cowboys the next year with their 1st pick.

The QB for Yale was the inspiration for a Cartoon Character in doonsbury.

History is interesting.
