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.

Audible

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.
