Wednesday leftovers

Some additional news and notes…

Scouting Cornell

The Big Red is experienced on the defensive side, returning 10 starters from last season. Cornell has a talented secondary and is physical up front. They played well in a 19-14 loss to Bucknell, a team that was picked to finish second in the Patriot League.

Offensively, Luke Hagy is a proven RB in the Ivy. He rushed for 105 yards and a TD last week. QB Rob Somborn has good arm strength. He made a 55-yard throw off his back foot against Bucknell. Cornell has a good group of WRs that are capable of making big plays. Tony Reno says the team really made strides from last season.

Yale leads the series 46-29-2 and has won four of the last seven. QB Morgan Roberts tied a school mark with five TD passes in a win over Cornell last year.

Beating the Big Red

Bucknell QB R.J. Nitti, son of former Yale RB John Nitti, threw a pair of TDs against Cornell last week including the game winner with under 2 minutes left.

Pedersen applying for redshirt

Former St. Joseph standout and Cornell freshman wide receiver Lars Pedersen will miss the season due to mononucleosis.

Pedersen, a Stratford native, is expected to apply for a medical redshirt.


Penn’s game against Villanova has been moved to Thursday because of the Pope’s visit to Philadelphia. It will be the first time an Ivy League team played on a Thursday since Princeton lost to Colgate in 2OT in 2009.

How can you say that 1;39 Yale will not score 40 points this sat. the offense is still trying to find out who they are ,Give the team some time, I keep telling everyone these DB have to turn and look back when the ball is in the air it happen again last sat or it will cost us games.
