Let's hope our training staff can get some of the walking wounded back to the playing field. My estimate is that 8 starters are currently out of the lineup.

Agreed. I am thinking that some of those may be out for the year though. I am waiting to see the next name that is confirmed.

Day to day at means year to year at Yale. No other Ivy team has had as many crippling injuries over the past three years. Tyler Varga had only ONE complete season at Yale. What is going on??

3:27 I'm sure you have a theory. Let me guess. Coaching.

In response to the question from John Walsh, the answer is yes. The title of the person who handles training and conditioning is called the strength and conditioning COACH and that COACH takes his direction from the HEAD COACH. However, at some point the ATHLETIC DIRECTOR needs to step in and get involved to find outweigh there are so many inquires year after year and not just hope the problem goes away

It's football. Every team has injuries. It's part of the game. I could see there may be an issue if there was an inordinate amount of hamstring pulls, but that's not the case.

Interesting to see how offense plays this Friday in good weather, and whether the defense can keep up the bend-but-not-break mentality. Given the state of our receiving corps, we should utilize our tight ends more, and NOT throw down sidelines for close grabs. We were luckier with Maine, but the Dartmouth game shows how well that works with a good secondary.

Frankly as a young alum, I would rather see us do so-so down this stretch, get our injured guys back, and work at beating Harvard.

6:18 may have made the dumbest comment on this board. Coaching is now responsible for injuries. Silly.

9:36, we can't mail it in to get ready for Harvard while an Ivy League Championship is still in play. Every game is a must win.
