All riled up

Headed over for the last hour of practice but the most noteworthy part of my time there was Yale coach Tom Williams' post-practice tirade.

To say Williams was unhappy with the effort level would be an understatement of immense proportions. While calling out a couple players, Williams' wrath was directed at the entire unit as he reminded him of last year's outcome against Cornell.

Watching players walk back to the huddle is pretty high up on Williams' list of things he does not expect to see at practice. He bypassed the daily ritual of having players meet with their positions coaches and told them to "get off the field."

As for the practice itself, Gio Christodoulou was back at full speed catching multiple touchdown passes. Christodoulou left the season-opening win over Georgetown with cramping issues.

Alex Thomas and Reid Lathan, who missed Saturday's game, were in uniform but neither took part in the scrimmage portion of the practice. While it is still early, I would think they will both be able to go on Saturday's home and Ivy League opener against Cornell.

Cory Palmer, the only returning starter on the offensive line, was back practicing with the first unit. Palmer saw action at both guard and tackle.
