A Bowl Full of Memories

Rich Marazzi, the author of A Bowl Full of Memories: 100 Years of Football at the Yale Bowl,  will be selling and signing his book outside Portal 16 at the Yale Bowl Saturday before the Yale-Harvard game.

The book, which was released last year, is well done, full of information and photos. 

A closer look at the book

Excellent book. My son got it for me for Christmas last year. Great pics and some very uncensored quotes from former players.

My favorite part is on Jack Siedlecki. I think he was unfairly given the bum's rush by Yale. The book finally gives Coach Siedlecki the credit he is due.

I concur in the Son of Eli's sentiments about Jack Siedlecki. His teams won our last titles in 1999 and 2006.

Jack Westafer, Cretin-Derham Hall has committed to Yale. He will likely play defensive back at the safety position.

Jack was a good guy and a decent coach, but you can't keep losing to H every year and keep your job.

Jack's other problem was too many losses when Yale had a lead at halftime, specifically Harvard 2005 and Princeton 2006, but there were several others.

Add in the embarrassing disaster of Harvard 2007 and Jack was toast.

Hopefully Reno will eventually buck the trend, but a Yale coach is, and should be, rated on his record against Harvard.

I have no problem with that.

Jack at least knows what it feels like to walk across a football field with a smile on his face to shake Tim Murphy's hand. Tony Reno can only imagine that, so far.

Judging Yale football coaches disproportionately by their success or failure against Harvard is counterproductive. Obviously, Harvard is currently the class of the league so that's one useful measuring stick -- but only one.

But holding up Harvard as the primary measuring stick is analogous to giving a student an exam in advanced quantum mechanics. Right now, our football program is a freshman or a sophomore. We have no business being evaluated solely by a test in advanced physics. That's not how you build a program from the bottom, which is where we were when Tom Williams was forced out.

Tim Murphy was a loser (by W-L record, that is) when he first started in Cambridge. I imagine that he viewed his objective as building a winner, not just beating Yale, though that would be a happy coincident by-product.

Our obsession with Harvard is one of the major reasons we can't get out of first gear.

Jack also walked across the field 8 times with a frown. Something else Reno can only imagine.

If we are not going to measure success or failure as wins against Harvard, let's start playing Columbia last or rotate season ending games.

After all, I guess for some of you the Harvard game doesn't mean anymore than any other game.

We are still trying to recover from the Coach Sid disaster. It's his fault Harvard has out-recruited Yale this century.
