Witt gets the nod at QB

During Tuesday's Ivy League conference call, Yale coach Tom Williams announced that Patrick Witt will start against Georgetown although last year's starter Brook Hart is expecting to see time against the Hoyas.

Williams also said Jordan Farrell will be the starting tailback on Saturday.

Neither decision is particularly surprising. Witt was slowed early in the fall camp with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder but seems at ease with the high-percentage passing game put in by new offensive coordinator Brian Stark. He is also more athletic than Hart.

Farrell has had an outstanding camp and seems primed to make an impact. However, this will not be a repeat of the last few years when Mike McLeod got the call over and over again. Freshman Mordacei Cargill and sophomore Alex Thomas are among the long list of tailbacks pushing for time.
