When are people going to start to realize that the injury bug that has hit this program began with the arrival of Reno. Playing 18 year old boys against 21 year old men is a disaster waiting to happen. There is a reason why the injuries weren't there under Jack and Tom, they played juniors and seniors with a soph or frosh sprinkled in. It's also why the teams were more physical on the field, they were given the time needed to develop. Speaking of which, what about all the hype surrounding this "new" training program? Sorry, don't think we needed a change there, just a change at the top.

I don't disagree, but I think blaming playing freshmen in games is overstated.
Many of the injuries plaguing Yale over the past 5 years have taken place off-season or in practice, not in games. Those can't be blamed on playing boys against other schools' men.

Something (or things) is definitely wrong with the system.

Maybe Tony should order some of those Dartmouth tackling robots, and plaster pictures of his face on them - give the kids something to tee off on!

Beckett should have been more pro-active in determining what is "wrong with the system." The injury problem has clearly been a troubling issue during Reno's tenure and the attempt to remedy the problem with this year's announced improved strength and conditioning program combined with some changes in the nutritioning has obviously not worked. If anything there were more injuries than last season. Whether or not Beckett decides to keep Reno, for the sake of player safety, he should hire a consultant to do a thorough assessment of the history of injuries over past couple of years and make an empirical determination of possible root causes that can be remedied. It would seem any new coach would want that to be done too. Without a more rigorous analysis to determine what might be wrong gives the impression that the AD office is just blaming this whole issue on bad luck. Maybe it is just that -sometimes a couple of deviations from the norm are through no ones fault, but at least make the effort to show everything has been looked at.

voy vey. You are spot on. In fact, as part of the its multi-year partnership with Yale, Yale made a special order from Under Armour to secure commitments for these inflatable tackling dummies for the Bulldog football program. Unfortunately, the inflatable tackling dummies were custom designed by Coach Tony Reno so they had a few problems in their operation and they appear to not warrant their high ranking by the scouting services.

First, the program scheme for the dummies made no sense with key parts missing or falling apart. Despite these dummies being continually infused with hot air, they were unable to stay inflated due to all the holes in the scheme. As a result, disproportionate number of the dummies quit on their coach operators with the alumni investors requesting refunds.

Due to ever growing number of complaints from the alumni faithful investors, Under Armour secretly replaced their logos on the dummies with the Nike Swoosh. The Yale Daily News has closely followed this 5-year debacle experiment and has been increasingly wondering how these dummies are still around.

Well-done, junkie!

The YDN may not be the only ones wondering how these dummies are still around after this 5-year debacle experiment.

Oh wait, different dummies. Different experiment.

Maybe I am being far too harsh. After all, Comedian Ron White was called in by YDN to evaluate these dummies and he identified their perfect alibi Ö You canít fix stupid!
