The Cleveland Browns front office facelift has become more of a Harvard Alumni meeting. 

Wednesday, the Browns appointed Andrew Berry as the VP of Player Personnel. The 28-year-old has spent four years with the Indianapolis Colts as a Pro Scouting Coordinator.

He joins executive vice president of football operations, Sashi Brown (Harvard Class of 2002) and chief strategy officer, Paul DePodesta (Harvard 1995) in what is becoming the smartest brain trust in sports.

For Cleveland fans, this is no reason to celebrate.There are no meetings planned to organize a Championship Parade to Public Square. Fans are not mortgaging their homes to purchase Super Bowl 51 tickets.  

In this blue-collar town that has been denied Championships since 1964, this move can be taken one of two ways.

Fans may find Hope in these hires. Hope that the Browns have finally found a solid foundation that will build a dynasty.Other fans can reference past moves, by the Browns, that looked good on paper but failed to produce positive results.  Carmen Policy, Mike Holmgren, Joe Banner and Mike Lombardi would be a few names that still cause nausea for a Browns fan.  

Other fans can reference past moves by the Browns that looked good on paper but failed to produce positive results. Carmen Policy, Mike Holmgren, Joe Banner and Mike Lombardi would be a few names that still cause nausea for a Browns fan.  

Resumes and degrees mean nothing in the "Factory of Sadness". The only thing that will satisfy one of the largest fan bases in sports, is a winner. 

Pittsburgh Steelers v Cleveland Browns

No sports town has been disappointed like Cleveland. Last minute disasters that stripped a Championship out of the callused hands of a working class city.

'The Drive', 'The Fumble', 'The Shot', 'The Decision' and who could forget Craig Counsel's line drive single to drive in the winning run in the bottom of the 9th inning of Game 7, with two outs and a full count to take the 1997 World Series from the Indians?

Harvard, Yale, Ohio State, Kent State, it doesn't matter to Browns fans. But if these three Harvard men build an organization and a team that finally hoists a World Championship Trophy, Public Square will be full of Browns fans singing, "Fair Harvard."
