A Solid Meh
I thought the Cavalier Daily was less overwhelming than the Harvard Crimson. I'm not a fan of the huge white space between the masthead and the "top stories" section, though that space may be what contributed to the neater look of the web page.
The pictures at the top were a good way to grab attention, but I like the Crimson's style of spreading out the images. Without that space, the Cavalier seems text-heavy, and it certainly isn't.
The article teasers at the top of the page are a good idea, but a little confusing, in my opinion. Especially since the first one reads like this:
All before a question is asked in a full sentence, which made it seem like the Cavalier was textually burping. Manners, Cavalier, manners.
The image of the print addition was a thoughtful touch. I don't know why this appealed to me so much, but I think it added visually to a page that was sadly lacking in images below the fold.
