At MIT, running back Brown discovers a formula for successAt MIT, running back Brown discovers a formula for success
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — MIT is a school defined by numbers. Everything, from the buildings to the names of courses, is numbered.
Even one of the marching band’s football cheers is a number. The members shout out the digits of pi. As in the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. But they don’t stop at 3.14. This is MIT, after all. They go the distance, as in 3.14159265358979323846 and so on.
So perhaps it’s fitting that MIT is home to the leading rusher in Division III: senior running back DeRon Brown, who is putting up big numbers again.
