Gentlemen;speed at the tight end position causes problems with the secondary forcing a linebacker to cover a circumstance the cantabs have exploited our blue for years.time to return the favor.

Business as usual for Reno and crew. Every year for last 7 they have had the best on paper recruiting class. Kids decommitting from Power 5 schools and turning down the little 7 Ivies to rush to New Haven.

Yet some how in the games he hasnt had both an NFL RB (transfer) and the best QB (transfer) on the field together he has won less then a third of his Ivy contests.

How is all this talent beatable? Is he that bad of a coach? Does he not care about kids once they arrive and solely focus on the next wave of recruits?

7 years of the best recruits ever to grace the Ivies and other then an upset of a Harvard team that had their heart ripped out in last 3min of the Penn game a week earlier... they were a bottom tier team last season and the season before and the season... you get the point

Yale has had some systemic issue related to physical therapists which were not entirely under his control. They caused many of these great recruits to be sidelined with injuries. Those issues are finally being addressed.

Reno has a great relationship with his players. Reno's best years are ahead of him. You may be eating your words sooner than you think.

Reno's dubious recruiting practices (ie disappearing offers) are common knowledge. While these dishonorable practices have contributed to successful recruiting classes on paper, they have made Yale recruiters personas non grata at high schools where players have been burned. Over time the distrust generated becomes a negative such that Yale recruiting will be increasingly hampered going forward.

Sounds like sour grapes from a parent of a so called "burned" player. Yale's recruiting class for 2018 is currently rated #1 in the Ivy League by 247 Sports. I see no empirical evidence to support your assertion that Reno or his staff have bad reputations as recruiters.

Had a friend burned by Bagnoli when he was at Penn . Another buddy was jerked around by Murphy. He finally told Murphy no thanks. Apparently Murphy was shocked. I guess he didn't think anyone would ever turn down Harvard. I'm sure every player will have some sort of a negative recruiting experience.

PennLB makes valid points.

Some may want to assess Reno's tenure based on accumulated 24/7 touts.

I prefer wins on the field. By that measure, there's no question that results are lacking.

True, the injury/systemic medical staff issues haven't helped the program. Are they truly being addressed sufficiently? No way to know yet.

On the flip side, PennLB's attempt to discount the Varga / Roberts results is a bit specious. Reno got those two on the field. If Reno gets the blame for the lack of results without those two, he should also get the credit for the success achieved with them.

My opinions of Reno and Beckett took a nosedive after the YDN expose on the injury problems that have been so detrimental to the program. One can only wonder how long it would have taken for remedial actions were it not for the fine reporting by the journalists.

Patience is a virtue. Just think what a mistake it would have been to loose patience with James Jones during his 13 year drought in winning an Ivy League Championship, or with John Stuper with his 23 year league championship drought. Now both those coaches are receiving numerous awards and accolades. Did they just become good coaches? No. They always were.

In retrospect it's clear firing Sidliecki's was a mistake. Beckett is not going to make that mistake again. Yale needs to and will give Reno more time.

I may be wearing rose colored glasses, but I think the patience with Reno will be rewarded in the near future with an Ivy Championship. Once the program gets rolling we could even see a new Yale dynasty emerge in football. There are reasons to be very optimistic about the direction Yale Football is heading. Stay the course.

I agree with Son of Eli that firing Siedlecki was a mistake. He was a good coach who stepped into a difficult situation, stabilized it and then took it to regular residence in the upper division.

Jack's detractors always point to some excruciating losses to Harvard and Princeton as justification to terminating him. Sure, those losses were painful, but to paraphrase the old saying "their players are on scholarship, too," the Crimson guys are all on full financial aid. Just kidding. But the truth is, the other team's players are trying hard, too. Sometimes you're going to lose.

I'd take Jack back in a heart beat.

NOT a mistake. Yale-Harvard 2005 and 2007 plus Princeton 2006. Three straight years, three straight disasters.

Plus earlier in the 2000's Yale had some of the worse defensive teams ever seen in New Haven. Remember a 55-44 loss to Brown?

Jack was a good guy and a mediocre coach.

Although all those losses were painfull the only one I would categorize as a disaster is the 2007 loss to Harvard. Even that wasn't as bad as the embarrassing 4th and 22 fake punt loss in 2009 under Williams.

Siedlecki's 70-49 record at Yale speaks for itself, as does his two Ivy League Championships. Yale hasn't won an Ivy Championship since he was let go following the 2008 season, and has only beaten Harvard once since then. Siedlecki beat Harvard four times.

Furthermore, Yale's record is just 40-40 since Siedlecki was fired.

Two "shared" Ivy championships. Mediocrity looks good after the last few years. That doesn't mean you settle for it.

Can't recall too many wins under Jack when I said to myself that he out coached the other guy.

There were far more games Yale lost that they should have won than there were games Yale won that they should have lost while Jack was coach.

The quotes around "shared" are quite appropriate, both "titles" would have gone to rival team with application of elementary tie breaker of head to head result, Brown in '99 and Princeton in '06.

If you speak with Jack's players, they will tell you his offense was simple minded, esp in McLeod era, about four plays, counter trey and a few variations. Jack's overuse of McLeod in '07 was criminal, what did 40 plus carries against a weak Lehigh team prove? Yale tank was empty by time of Harvard game, and one of the most humiliating defeats in Yale history ensued.

No one was calling Yale's offense simplistic in 2003 when they put up more than 40 points in five different games.

LOL. Defense was atrocious that year. And I do agree that Jack got way too conservative in his play calling once he had McCleod. This is because he didn't have the talent on the field Reno has today. That's why he felt he had to over utilize McCleod.

They way I see it Siedlecki was a great coach, but not a great recruiter. I also don't think he had the same level of support from the admissions department Reno enjoys today. Yale was slow to get into the Financial Aid arms race. Harvard got the jump on them with that.


Yet his record shows he got more out of his players than all other Yale coaches in the IAA era.


Consider this, which Yale coach has the best winning % in the IAA era?

A. Cozza
B. Siedlecki
C. Willimas
D. Reno

Ans. Siedlecki.

Cozza is a Hall of Fame coach, so that accomplishment must mean something.

Goodyear also play DT. More on Goodyear:

Tate Goodyear, Sycamore, OL/DL

At 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds, Goodyear was a big reason behind the Aviators rushing for more than 2,200 yards as a team in 2016. He was named first-team all-GMC as an offensive lineman during his junior season but also had a significant impact on the defensive side of the ball, recording 46 tackles (26 solo) and six sacks. He earned his first Division I offer on Feb. 8 from Kent State. His most recent offer came on June 13 from Colorado State. He also holds offers from Air Force, Albany, Army, Brown, Bucknell, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Cincinnati, Dartmouth, Eastern Kentucky, Elon, Georgetown, Harvard, Holy Cross, Iowa State, Marshall, Mercer, Princeton, Yale and Youngstown State

gentlemen; simple answer to mr siedlecki being shown the door was the failure to beat the contabs and possibly second half collapse against the tigers.
