Good news, bad news

So are you a good news first or a bad news first type of person?

I admit to having the preference of getting the bad news first so here goes. Don't expect to see starting cornerback Paul Rice against Princeton on Saturday. The knee which Rice injured against Columbia two weeks ago will keep him out of action. Rice was limited to one play in last week's win at Brown and that came while covering a punt. Sophomore Adam Money, who played the entire game at corner and had a brilliant game, will take Rice's spot.

Now for the good news, it appears as if the other starting cornerback Casey Gerald will not have to choose between playing in next week's Yale/Harvard game and staying in Houston as part of the Rhodes Scholar interview process. As a Rhodes finalist, Gerald is flying to Houston Thursday for the final round of interviews on Friday. The fear was he would have to stay in Houston on Saturday in case the selection committee wanted to conduct any follow-up interviews but both Yale coach Jack Siedlecki and Gerald's older sister and legan guardian Natashia confirmed that the scheduling conflict has been averted and Gerald should be able to play in the 125th meeting between Yale and Harvard a week from Saturday. Look for more, much more on Casey Gerald's remarkable story in Tuesday's edition of the Register.

Does anyone know if, since he missed most of last season with an injury, if Larry Abare couls apply for another season of eligibility. I know it's been done in the past.

Jeff,

Larry has already sat out a semester, thus meeting the eight-semester rule, and he will apply for, and is expected to be granted, a medical redshirt for missing last season. He has told Jim Fuller he plans on returning next year.
