Wednesday leftovers

A few more notes heading into Yale's game against Brown this week...

SCOUTING BROWN

Expect the Bears to mix it up at quarterback. Seth Rosenbauer (6-3, 240) will run out of the wildcat. He rushed for 206 yards on 30 carries in a win over Penn last week. The Bears will also use Marcus Fuller at QB. He makes plays with both his arm and legs. Brown has five receivers who can stretch the field in different ways. RB Andrew Coke is fast and elusive. Reno described him as a Candler Rich-type back.

Defensively, Brown will force teams to throw and bring pressure. They have good size at LB and DL Ludovic Richardson, a Notre Dame-West Haven product, is another player to keep an eye on. No one has played Harvard tougher this year than Brown. The Bears had an opportunity to beat Harvard with 2 minutes left. Keep in mind, the road team has won 13 of the last 18 meetings in this series.

WALLACE RISING

WR Grant Wallace had a career day with 13 receptions for 133 yards against Columbia. Wallace, son of former Bulldogs RB bob Wallace, is now No. 5 on Yale’s all-time receptions list. His 1,391 career receiving yards puts him at No. 6. Also, his 13 receptions against the Lions is the fifth most in a game in program history.

INJURY UPDATE

Highly touted freshman OL Jon Bezney was back on the field for the Bulldogs Saturday. Bezney played about 25 snaps. Reno said he hopes to see TEs Sebastian Little and Stephen Buric return soon.

FCS LEADERS

Yale continues to lead the nation in total offense (599.6 ypg). WR Deon Randall (7.9 receptions per game), QB Morgan Roberts (352 ypg total offense) and RB Tyler Varga (15.4 ppg) all lead the FCS.

Chris: Reno spoke of several "season ending injuries" in his report to alumni. I wonder if at some point you can summarize them for us. I assume they'll all be eligible next year if they want to be.. Thanks, and keep up the good work. Bob Semple

Chris:
Any news on Nick Crowle? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you aren't eligible for another year if you've played in at least four games.
Cheers, L et V

Thankfully Nick has only played in 3 games. Last I heard the plan was to red shirt him (unless otherwise needed for the last two games). Would be great to see him back.
