One has to respect the young man's conflict. Perhaps, he has felt a lot of pressure to be "the best" in football and otherwise. One of the attractive things about the Ivy League is that a young man or woman can get a fantastic education whether or not football (or another sport) ends up being a part of that education. I would hope that Yale would offer the qualified Mr. Grinde admission whether or not he plays football. And. I hope that Mr. Grinde, if he still enjoys the team experience, would join the team without expectations or pressure to be "the best." But, one way
Or the other, his Yale education will definitely serve him well.

Great article, and best of luck to Mr. Grinde.

Yale does a fantastic job of making freshmen feel welcome and part of a family. I had never visited the state of Connecticut until the day before my first day at Yale, but the residential college system was something very special and I quickly made lots of friends. I do hope he decides to come back, whether for football or not.

But one question: Do we actually do only two hours of lifting a week? Seems abnormally low. Or are athletes expected to weight train in their own free time?

To be certain, men on the football team have absolutely no free-time whatsoever. This is a big part of why some players love for the game is smothered.
Regarding the conditioning program - it truly is bad. Many players have complained (becoming weaker/slower/heavier). Players are not permitted to pursue their own work-out's - they are expected to "trust the system".

Yale's former captain, Darious Manora, has a much different opinion on the new strength and conditioning program. Furthermore, Yale's Lacrosse team has had proven success with it.
