We are not good enough to beat Harvard. Gonna be a long year. Colgate was a below average team.

Wow. Such negativity. Remember, this was Yale's first game and Colgate's 3rd. Plus Yale was on the road playing at their homecoming. It was a big win.

Rich is so average. I'd rather see Roberts air it out and get the ball to the playmakers we have. Rich isn't winning it running the ball like Varga.

We have playmakers at WR with Hines and Siragusa. Rich did exactly what he needed to. Didn't try and be Varga and doesn't need to be. D was solid, especially second half. Spencer R. is a player at coerner. Nice to have him back. Solid win.

I agree with 7:21

I wonder,though,if this game might change the philosophy from a run offense to pass, where there is a lot of talent!

colgate could indeed be the worst team in FCS.

Surely you're kidding 9:46. I'd put them in the upper three of the Patriot League. We'll see, but surely these first three games weren't bad performances in any one. Navy, New Hampshire and Yale was a brutal start for this team.... but it gets easier every week.... and it will be even easier next week.

9:46 doesn't have a clue. Colgate isn't even the worse team in their own league. Lafayette, G-Town, Bucknell, and maybe Holy Cross are worse.

If Rich is average, then Salter would be average at Cortland St. He's is not an Ivy League back.

Winning the first game of the year against a team that has played 2 good teams already is a good win. We don’t know how good Colgate is going to be. None the less it is a good start for us.

All of the bulldogs have room for improvement but for a first outing for the season this was definitely a good one. And to the idiot (4:53PM)that said we are not good enough to beat Harvard right now, that is irrelevant, because we have 2 months and many games to get ready for to prepare for that. Obviously you wanted us to lose this week, didn’t happen. 1-0 is as good as it gets so far.

On the live streamed telecast, it appeared that the Yale players were better conditioned than the Colgate players by the end of the game (not withstanding that Colgate had played two tough opponents already).

I expect Yale will show a marked improvement in the running game within the next few weeks as Candler Rich really did well in the second half against a very good Colgate defense.

Also, watch for #31 RB Deshawn Salter. His tackle of the Colgate player who ran back QB Morgan Robert's sole interception in the 2nd half showed amazing speed from a long distance behind. (It was not surprising, then, to look up sophomore Salter's roster listing and see that in high school he was the 55m and 300m league 2011 champion in track as well as 100m sectional champion and 200m league champion in more recent HS years.)

Last year he only played in three varsity games. His longest run of the year was 28 yards and had 10 attempts for 54 yards at Cornell.

So how much does Candler Rich really weigh? Coach Reno says he's added 15 pounds, but he was listed at 206 in last year's Harvard program and 206 on this year's roster.

Everyone talks about skills players and when you lose Varga, Randle, and Wallace that's reasonable. But did anyone watch that offensive line? There have been players on that line singled out for criticism on this blog before. I won't do that, but I will say that if you know anything about line play, you know there is enormous work to do to improve what we saw yesterday. That's as bad as a Yale offensive line has looked in a while

Any information about Hines' injury?

I think Hines torn his UCL. Could be out for a while

8:59 PM

8:59: What? First, a UCL tear would be in the elbow, not the shoulder, so icing down the shoulder would be an odd treatment. Second, a wide receiver could play forever with a UCL tear. If you don't throw the ball, it's just a sore elbow.

Hate to tell you guys, the O Line was pathetic last year as well. When you have a great tailback like Varga it covers up a lot of issues.

12:25 pm -- Are you clueless or just stirring things up? O line last year gave up fewest sacks in Ivy League. One first team and 2 second team All Ivies. Most YPG in the nation. We saw Sat. Freeline moved to LG with two very talented if experienced starters on right side. Colin will sort that out.

Thank you 12:47PM for shedding some intelligent knowledgeable light on the subject for this idiot 12:25PM. Varga was tremendous, but did not do things alone. We do not expect anyone to have played their best football in game 1. All facets will improve. None the less it was a good start. In the end it doesn't matter how it looks as long as you, in the mortal words of Al Davis, "Just win baby". 1-0 and here we go. GO BULLDOGS!

it was all Varga last year. Cannon and Friedline didn't block a sole in 10 games.

Make it 11 straight for Friedline. He spent more energy in Pre game then vs the Colgate defense.

What are you getting at, 3:55. The offensive line isn't fishing. There's no reason to block a sole or a flounder, for that matter.

On the opening drive Yale used a "pass first" attack to score.what ever works !

Less chest bumps and more blocking from Mason would be nice.
