Here is what we have learned:
1: Williams should have never started last year over Furman. Credit Reno for learning from his mistakes.

2: Randall and Smith were severely missed last season. Their presence changes the entire offense.

3: Playing Egu at both DE and LB is smart, gets him on the field, and takes advantage of his abilities.

4: DL is helping young secondary by applying pressure on the QB.

Still a Reno critic, but I am an objective one. He seems to be learning from previous mistakes both on the field and dealing with parents (if blog responses are to be believed). I still think his ego will get the best of him, but willing to judge based on the facts.

Saying "I still think his ego will get the best of him" is NOT judging based on the facts.

It's what you hope happens so you can say "I was right"

Wishful thinker was only one point off! And he didn't do so badly last week either!

To Anonymous. Totally agree on your points as to what we've learned. William's turnovers hurt last year and Furman showing good judgement..but some of his ints last yr were caused by lack of WR's like Smith and Randall who can stretch the field. You can't live on possession receivers alone. Reno is in his first HC job and like anyone has lots to learn...but he is learning. The throwback pass call vs Princeton last year right before halftime lost that game and was a sign of a rookie coach. But he clearly is learning and the future looks bright.

Lots of unsung heroes yesterday. Randall got sprung multiple times by ferocious blocking, especially by Cameron Sandquist who sacrificed stats for the good of the team. All the WRs blocked very well - sign of a good team. It is also worth noting that Yale through the bubble screen a ridiculous number of times because Cornell kept stacking the box to stop Varga. Lastly, its Kevin Morris, not Reno, who calls the plays. Credit him for doing a much better job this year, albeit with better personnel.

Team looks much better on both sides of the ball. Having both running and receiving threats is going to be tough on defenses. Wondering why in the past two games with commanding leads starters are kept in. Big risk getting a starter injured. It is a good opportunity to get younger players some experience when the game is already decided.
