Congratulations to the Big Green players and to Coach Teevens for their win over Yale. A dominating performance that displayed good old fashioned "hard running" and superb blocking. Hard to picture any team in the remaining schedule with the defense that can deal effectively with Dartmouth's overpowering offensive line. Though the Dartmouth Princeton game is shaping up to be the Ivy match of the year.

As for Yale, I don't blame the coaches for the loss. Dartmouth was simply the much better team. However I am critical of Reno's inexplicable decision to continue using his star qb in the waning minutes of the game again when there was no chance for Yale to pull out a last second win. He did the same in last week's game against Maine when Yale had a sufficient lead. Rawlings had a commendable performance despite getting battered by the Dartmouth defense. Yale was lucky he escaped without any major injury.
Can't blame him for that last interception, Dartmouth defense knew he had to pass and who would be his target (Klubnik).

Dudek is still not close to 100% and his running abilities, esp his cuts, will continue to be hampered by the undisclosed injury. Reno shouldn't have him on the field and risk further injury until he is really ready to play. Let's hope he can get back to his full form for the stretch of games with P and H. In the meantime use Lamar, Alston and Charles.

I agree with your thoughts on Rawlings. The kid is very talented but he took a beating in second half. A couple of times he basically wobbled and staggered to his feet. It was obvious (to me anyway and I was on the other side of the field) he was hurting. I will give him credit he has a big heart.

gentlemen; another gutsy performance by mr.rawlings who should not have been in the game in the last series at least. the bottom line is the indians pushed our blue all over the field and were the better team. the fourth quarter defensive adjustments should have been made after the indians first drive. our blue squad should invest in purchasing some of the robotic tackling dummies as our inept tackling resembles flag football.

Good point on the tackling dummies, old blue!
I'm sure Bud Tee would take great delight in selling one of the units to his best bud Tony for the princely sum of:
