    Been considering the similarities between the 2010 season and the 1998 season.

    It was the fifth season for both Higgins and Coen and in reality their first senior class. Both were coming off a disappointing 4-7 season and the dramatic turnaround was unexpected.

    Both teams rallied from a 17 point deficit to beat Harvard in Cambridge and had a home victory over Princeton. Both were undefeated in the Patriot League and had a big win over Colgate.

    A junior quarterback had a break out season and the defense was lead by a strong core of linebackers.

    Of course the 1998 team went undefeated in the regular season, beat Richmond in the playoffs, and nearly beat eventual champion Massachusetts in the quarterfinals. It was clearly a better team than this year’s squad, but there are a lot of similarities.

    May the succeeding years after 2010 be similar to those after 1998!
