I don't think there's a single thing in Greenguy's post that I can disagree with.

A couple of points to add to that post:

The field has never been great, but conditions like those you saw last night are a relatively-recent development. The team has been practicing in the Bowl - at least one day a week, I think - over the past two years, and the condition of the surface has dropped off considerably ever since. Why they continue to do this defies all logic. Compounding the problem was all the rain that has fallen recently in the area.

Regarding Dudek (#33) - he, too, has another gear. 4.43 in the 40, all sorts of track and field accolades in high school, elusive moves. However, he's not a big kid, so moving the pile is sometimes a challenge. And what type of surface does a quick, elusive runner need to excel? A dry one with firm footing -- exactly what the Bowl does not provide! Granted, the stout Dartmouth D also contributed to his struggles last night. And, a nagging injury (ankle is the rumor) that has limited his playing time this year.
