Tuesday notes

-- Matt Polhemus should be fine and is expected to play and start Saturday against Dartmouth. He was shaken up in the win over Holy Cross, but there were no lingering effects.

-- Don't be surprised if center Nick Wachtler plays, or even starts this week. Wachtler practiced some last week and is expected to be full go in practice this week. Ty Davis replaced him the past two weeks. Davis came out against Holy Cross but it was because he was sick, not injured.

-- Saturday's game against Dartmouth will be on New England Sports Network (NESN), one of seven games on television for Yale this season.

-- There will be a feature on Mike McLeod in Wednesday's Register. Look for the link. There will also be a very interesting feature about faith and Yale football in Sunday's Register.

-- Yale recruit Alex Thomas of Ansonia High School will be featured in the high school section of Sports Illustrated this week after breaking the state record with 518 yards rushing. He also had seven touchdowns, one shy of state record held by two players, including, ironically, McLeod.

-- Look for a new video feature on our website called "Yale's 2-minute drill," which will appear each Friday. This is new ground for us, and there will be a lot of trial and error, but we're excited to kick it off.
