CAMBRIDGE, Mass. Bud Norris Jersey . -- The mens soccer season was canceled after a demeaning scouting report on the womens team. Cross-country is under investigation for a similar strain of locker room talk.But even as scandal surrounds the Harvard athletic department, the Crimson football team remains focused on a singular goal -- the same goal, in fact, the program has had for almost a century and a half: Beat Yale.With a victory over their archrivals in the 133rd edition of The Game on Saturday, the Crimson (7-2, 5-1) would clinch a share of a fourth straight Ivy League championship for the first time in the schools history. (Harvard would win the title outright if Penn and Princeton both lose.) It would also be an unprecedented 10th victory in a row against Yale (2-7, 2-4), and it would put the seniors among their two predecessors as the winningest classes in Harvard football history.Its all coming down to the wire the last week, defensive lineman James Duberg said after practicing under the lights at Harvard Stadium. Theres absolutely a historical component to it. So theres a lot on the line.This year, more than usual.Amid a presidential election hijacked by locker room talk that fixated on womens looks and sexuality, The Harvard Crimson school newspaper reported that mens soccer players had for years been compiling a scouting report of their female counterparts that rated them on their less cerebral qualities. Athletic director Robert Scalise canceled the rest of the season, costing the team a chance at an Ivy League title; soon after, similar postings by members of the mens cross-country team led to an investigation that has not yet been resolved.Harvard coach Tim Murphy took note.Harvard kids arent good kids -- theyre great kids. But they dont walk on water, he said in his office at the Dillon Field House. And its up to us as parents and as educators to make sure they know (whats right). Because later in life, the consequences can be terminal.Asked if the football coaches addressed the scandal, if only to make sure they didnt have similar problems on their own team, Duberg said: It doesnt need to be addressed because they know were not doing anything like that.I can promise you thats not taking place on the Harvard football team, he said. We pride ourselves on being stand-up gentlemen. Savages on the field and gentlemen off the field.It wasnt that long ago that Yale was in a similar predicament.Last spring, basketball captain Jack Montague was expelled from school after a woman accused him of sexual assault. Montague claimed that the sex was consensual and he has sued the school over his dismissal; he was not charged, and police and prosecutors say there is no investigation.His former teammates publicly supported him, wearing warmup shirts featuring his number and nickname during their nationally televised game against Harvard. After complaints from other students, the team apologized.Football coach Tony Reno said this week he stresses to his players the importance of representing the school -- and themselves -- whether they are on the field or off.Im very proud of how our players have responded to adversity on campus, off campus and within the team, Reno said. If you really do your job as a coach, its to try and create an environment for your players to feel like the team is much bigger than themselves. And thats what weve created at Yale.The message is getting through, linebacker Darius Manora said.There is a way to conduct yourself on campus when no one is looking. And I think the guys, especially part of this program, have done an amazing job as far as making sure you are respectful of members of the community, he said.Every single play, every day we go out, we are Yale football players.---AP Sports Writer Pat Eaton-Robb contributed to this story from New Haven, Connecticut.---More AP college football: and Nick Markakis Braves Jersey . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . Jhoulys Chacin Braves Jersey . LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. . -- Former San Diego Chargers safety Paul Oliver was found dead at his Atlanta-area home Tuesday night, and a medical examiner said Wednesday that the ex-player committed suicide. New York Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said his team is missing opportunities to get the ball to Kristaps Porzingis.Theyve got to do a better job of getting him the ball when hes got a mismatch, Hornacek said after the Knicks fell to 1-3 following a 19-point loss to the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. There were several times where hes in the area on a smaller guy and were not necessarily looking for him. Were looking for the next thing. Weve got to find that mismatch, throw it up there, let him gather the ball and make a play on that.Porzingis missed all four of his field goal attempts Wednesday and was held without a field goal for just the second time in his 76-game career.They were switching; a lot of times he had a 6-5, 6-6 guy on him. We have to take advantage of that and just didnt see it, Hornacek said.Some around the NBA believe that Porzingis shots and touches may decrease in his second season because hes sharing the floor with new Knicks point guard Derrick Rose.Rose and Carmelo Anthony are players who use a high percentage of their teams plays when on the floor. Thus far this season, Porzingis is averaging 14.5 points per gamme on 11. Babe Ruth Jersey. 5 shots. Last season, he averaged 14.3 points on 12.3 shots. So there isnt a huge discrepancy, but the Knicks are struggling on both ends of the floor and would benefit from getting Porzingis some easier shots.In addition to failing to take advantage of Porzingis mismatches, the Knicks also struggled to defend on Wednesday. They allowed Houston to shoot 47 percent from the field and score 66 points in the first half. Defense has been an issue for the club early in the season.In Tuesdays loss to the Pistons, New York allowed Detroit to ring up 64 first-half points. In all, Knicks opponents have scored 30 points or more in eight of 16 quarters, and New York has yet to hold a team under 100 points.We just have to build better habits and be better on our one on one defense, Joakim Noah said. Just being on a string, being all together, understanding the game plan and taking pride in the defense.Added Rose: If we dont come out and play defense, were going to keep getting smacked like this.
