Money honored by Ivy League

Yale junior cornerback Adam Money was named the Ivy League's defensive player of the week. While other players in the league had gaudier stats than Money, his tackle of Columbia's Leon Ivery at the 2 yard line saved the game for the Bulldogs. He then caused and recovery a fumble to give Yale a chance to drive in for the game-winning touchdown with 58 seconds to play.

Money had five tackles, also had 99 yards on kickoff returns and other 49 on punt returns in a 23-22 Yale win.

Among the players he beat out for the award were Princeton's Steve Cody (15 tackles, 1 interception), Cornell's Chris Costello (14 tackles), Brown's James Develin (11 tackles, 3 1/2 tackles for losses) and teammate Paul Rice (15 tackles, a forced fumble).

Yale senior h-back/tight end John Sheffield, who had seven catches and 81 yards, was named to the honor roll along with Rice.

Jim - A great win for Yale, and some wonderful individual performances. Sheffield is such a terrific performer, I wonder whether Williams is now leaving him in on every offensive down, or if he is continuing the ridiculous idea of alternating his receivers, and not having him available on a lot of offensive plays. Even Siedlecki was smart enough to have Eric Johnson on the field for every offensive down in '99 and '00.
