by Scott Reed
The Harvard Crimson took a step back Saturday night in Providence, Rhode Island, losing 29-14 in disappointing fashion to a Brown team that, while talented, was predicted to finish behind Harvard in the preseason. The game was dominated by Brown from the outset yet at the same time was maddeningly within reach, as Crimson mistakes in the second half halted any semblance of a comeback. After the jump, we look at some of the causes in Harvard's poor performance.

The Big Green came in the polls this preseason as 7th in the Ancient Eight.  Head coach Buddy Teevens respectfully disagreed with the ranking, stating that voters were clearly missing the bigger picture. 

So what is in the big picture that everyone seems to be missing?  There are a number of things, but the three most important are coaching, experience, and offense. We'll take a look at those three keys after the jump.
