Hey Chris are you going to practice today.? Is Yale going to
update their depth chart soon since Larkin ,Buric and Little are out.?
I notice they don't do their programs for the starters anymore
in the Game Programs.

Chris; It would be nice to know the type of injury to Buric and Little. Although did not see much difference with Stallings and Hannini.

I can not get any info on injuries. The team is very tight-lipped about them. It's been that way since he got here. Williams was much different. If someone is done for the year, I will get that. And I understand where Reno is coming from. He doesn't want to give any sort of edge. Along those lines, I was told by multiple people Buric would play last week and he didn't. Also, because of his philosophy on injury news I don't expect the depth chart to reflect injuries.

What a joke you think you were talking about some type of superstar. With the exception of Varga and Randle there is not much difference between starters and backups. Reno should concentrate on teaching players how to tackle and cover recievers.

Pretty much the mark of a poor coach. Thinking by giving your injuries away that it gives you an advantage. Its the Ivy league. Whether Steve Buric plays or not has zero impact on the game.

I do not think it is a sign of a poor coach maybe immature. This team is better than last year and the year before that a sign of improvement. This weekend will show whether the team has grit or not.

Chris; If you attend practice you can see who is replacing the injured players.

2:44pm and 4:23PM you are idiots who do not know the sport at all. Most coaches keep their teams injuries close to the vest and don’t let that info out if they can help it. This is an institution of the sport that most coaches live by. You fools make me sick. Most of you just throw barbs without having any real knowledge of what you are saying. Most of the naysayers have no knowledge of what they are saying; they just hate Reno so they bash him. More fools. TruthTeller is the only person I have heard on this blog that will identify themselves and actually have some valid negative criticisms. The rest of you fools just talk stupid smack.

Most coaches at what level? It's a fine to not report injuries in the NFL. In FBS with the media it's almost impossible to hide injuries. When someone is not practicing people ask questions. So you make zero sense.

People, get off the Reno Bashing Train. If you want to bash, bash the administration. Cash buys resources that result in championships. The athletic resources here are poverty and that is not Reno's fault! Someone mentioned the field conditions earlier and I agree. If we had turf, without question, we beat Dartmouth by no less than three scores, and the discussion about Reno is completely different!

Dartmouth had turf. Last year's game was the same result. Sorry to poke a gigantic hole in your theory

Last years game was very similar to this year if you attended both. D made some plays and Y missed some. Last year, Y misses a wide open Smith down the sideline for an easy TD then later Smith drops a TD. D on the other hand makes two diving catches (first one looked incomplete) for TDs, game over. If you have watched football long enough you know coaching is overrated. Players make plays, period! Personally I thought the Y DBs this past weekend had much better coverage than the previous three weeks, the D QB put the ball where only the receiver could catch it and they made a couple great catches. It's one game, and it was a classic in my opinion.

No point in arguing something that you don't understand. Put on a pair of cleats and go out to the bowl on a rainy day or when the field is soggy and you will have a whole new appreciation for how difficult it is to run, cut, change direction or get leverage on that muck. After that experience let me know how effectively you think you could run the ball when conditions are like this. And don't say it affected both teams the same. To say that would be to assume that our run game is no better than theirs. Bottom line, the field conditions were the number one underlying factor in the outcome of this game.

Sure I go a way for a day and I miss all the Reno and Yale football bashers.
But you guys did a good job.
Don't give TT boy to much credit it's the same person.He does'nt put his name down all the time.
Do you Simon,say hi to your momma for me.

Both teams play on the same field, which makes comments about the playing surface moot. But one particular time we didn't run effectively was the last drive. Because we DIDN'T run! Used Varga on one play, a little swing pass for no gain or a yard loss. Best running back in the league, minute and a half left, three time outs, and we elect not to run the ball. WHA??

8:04 - "Watch football long enough and you realize coaching is overrated." Silly comment. I would guess a football expert such as yourself might be familiar with the the name Bill Parcells? New York Jets go from 1-15 the year before he arrived to 9-7 his first year and the AFC championship game his second year. Guess he was a great personnel guy, huh?

This is 8:04, What was Bill Belichick's record as HFC in Cleveland? New England with first ballot HOF Tom Brady? There are exceptions to every rule. PLAYERS MAKE PLAYS, not coaches, fact!

Recall the year Brady blew out his knee and someone named Matt Cassel was the QB? How did that turn out? Did that one slip your mind? Or do you have Cassel on your Hall of Fame ballot for turning Belichick into a good coach?

How about when Parcells lost Simms and turned to some guy named Jeff Hostetler. I'll refresh your memory. In the greatest coached game in Super Bowl history he beat the heavily favored Bills. Or when he lost Testaverde in game one of the season after the Jets' AFC championship game loss and came a game short of making the playoffs with a special teams guy named Ray Lucas quarterbacking. Or how about Marty Schottenheimer losing year after year after year with some of the most talent-laden rosters in the NFL. No one is going to argue that you don't need players. But you appear to be arguing that coaches make no difference. Silly

I said overrated. When the whistle blows, a coach can only do so much. The players play the game. The players make or don't make plays. What I said and where you've taken it are completely different. There are bad coaches coaching good teams and good coaches coaching bad teams. At the end of the day, you need players and they ultimately will win or lose the games.

Hats off to Larkin.. get well soon.. he and Manora did a great job filling in for Vaughan at the Mike - they are both Bucks who had to play out of position at the Mike because Vaughan was hurt. Oplinger was forced into action early without the luxury of training opportunities where Flanders could coach him up and inject him into learning situations on the field. This threw the whole defense out of whack.. Hope Larkin gets well soon.. it would be a shame if he and vaughan don't get to play together when vaughan comes back from injury and Yale has their field general on out there - get well soon AL - Manora and Oplinger.. keep holding it down until we can get to full strength.. we are behind you
