Bulldogs to have new look this season

As seen in Yale Alumni Magazine, the Bulldogs will be sporting a new look this season.

According to the article, "[Head coach Tony] Reno’s design aims to celebrate the Yale teams from the latter half of the twentieth century by maintaining the classic, simple elements that earned Yale a spot in Sports Illustrated’s Top Ten College Football Uniforms. The nods to the past began last year when he replaced the thick, outlined "Y" helmet sticker for the slimmer “Y” of the Calvin Hill era."
"With the modern-era bulldog logo (known as the "Y-dog") removed from the shoulder, the Bulldogs will look strikingly similar to the teams coached by Carm Cozza and other Yale legends. But with help from equipment manager Jeff Torre, Reno ensured any attempts to harken back to the past did not affect the jersey quality."
