FOUR-DOWN FRIDAY: Yale at Dartmouth

It's time for four-down Friday. Here are four things to look for when Yale travels to face Dartmouth on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in a matchup of two 3-0 teams.

Pressure: It’s no secret. Dalyn Williams is a very good quarterback. He has picked apart opposing defenses all season with both his arm and legs. If Yale can get good push up front, pressure Williams and make him get rid of the ball quickly, the Bulldogs could slow that offense. Yale sacked Williams seven times and forced an interception last year.

Tough test: Yale’s secondary will be challenged with two talented wide receivers in Victor Williams and Ryan McManus. Williams is a speedy receiver who stretches the field. McManus, who missed the last two games with an ankle injury, is expected back. He is a strong, physical receiver. Expect Dale Harris to match up with Williams and Rymiszewski to match up with McManus.

Run game: It’s uncertain who will be Yale’s main ball carrier on Saturday. If Candler Rich still can’t go, Deshawn Salter will get plenty of work. Don’t expect another 233 yards on the ground from the sophomore, but establishing the run game and getting balance will be key.

History: Dartmouth has had Yale’s number in recent years, winning the last three meetings. This is perhaps a must-win game for the Bulldogs if they are going to have a chance at their first Ivy title since 2006.

Bo Hines was Yale's top recruit this year. He played all season last year with NC State and was their top receiver. This year he has played part of the first half of Yale's first game. WHERE IS HE? IS HE THROUGH FOR THE SEASON??

How many times does Chris have to explain that he will be barred from practice and access to the coaching staff if he reveals what the coaches want to and have the right to keep secret.

Hines doesn't want to play football anymore. That's why he left NC State.

There are some serious fools on this blog. Hines in injured. he will be out for roughly 2-3 more weeks. Come of us get some inside info and can give it, but Chris CAN NOT as he has stated numerous times or he will NO LONGER be allowed to give us the info he does. So you ignorant morons need to LEAVE HIM ALONE.

What happen to the DB the middle of field was open all day.TE should be used more also can we put a FB in for blocking. Can we try some some other formations just once. Yale has to start recruiting physical Def Off lineman that are over 300lb to keep up with the other teams. Lets be real where not young anymore these kids have played together 4 three years .COULD it be new coaches yes it may take a little time with them.I like this team but we have a long way to go to get aIVY LEAGUE TITLE.
