A Thousand Words: Governor’s Cup


A Governor’s Cup Triumph: Brown defeats URI 35-21

In the 96th Governor’s Cup, also the second night game in Brown Stadium history, the Bears (2-1, 0-1 Ivy) came away with a convincing victory, 35-21, over the University of Rhode Island Rams (1-2). The Rams turned the ball over five times in the game, and the Bears’ offense took advantage throughout. Kyle Newhall-Caballero ’11.5 led the way for Bruno, going 14-25 through the air for 177 yards and two touchdowns. The opposing QB, Steve Probst, had some ugly stats through the air, but galloped like a fine, galloping gazelle, racking up 156 yards on eight rushes and two long touchdowns.

The Bears are now 2-0 at Brown Stadium under the lights, after last year’s shellacking of Harvard and now this victory over the state rival Rams. Check out Monday’s BDH for thorough coverage of the game, including quotes from Coach Estes and players and an update on Nicholas Faber’s injury (we hope he’s okay). Until then, go Bruno!

The bleachers were packed for the Governor's Cup matchup at Brown Stadium.

Smells like school spirit(s)

There comes a time in every person’s life where he must shed his civility, his horn-rimmed glasses, and his cut-off jean vest and succumb to basal human savagery, also known as animal behavior.  Fellow students, we are beary proud to announce that that time is Saturday.

The Governor’s Cup, under the lights, promises the posturing and school spirit that Brown wishes it had year round.  The football stadium will be alight with the passionate faces of inebriated students, the entropic clamor of the Brown band and…uh, lights.  In order to create the hubbub that we seek, enter Brown State University.  Brown State is an ideal we all aim to achieve, as practiced with a variety of accoutrements – the dizzy bat, the most Natural of Lights, and the beat-boppin’ sounds of a pump-up playlist.  Brown State is – in simplest terms – an epic tailgate.

In order to facilitate effective cheering and bolster interest in a bunch of men running in tights, insert liquid school spirits.  Continue Reading
