I think Yale will bounce back. Maine has nowhere near the talent Dartmouth has.Yale 27 Maine 24
Despite the nadir of the Dartmouth game, Yale should bounce back against Maine, whether or not the several starters that have been out with injuries return. If there is focus on the playing field and no dropped balls, missed tackles, or poor pass coverage, look for Yale to win another closely played ball game, and to get back in the win column, with a score of:Yale 33, Maine 24
If Maine is so great why are they 2-3? Still, I suppose I should pick against Yale once per season, anyways, especially now that my 10-0 dream is by the boards. Non-Ivy is a good time. Maine 24, Yale 20
"If Maine is so great why are they 2-3?"Pretty simple. Losses to two FBS programs (BC and Tulane) and the #14 team in FCS (Villanova).
Cold possible rain too. Yale wins a smash mouth close game. 14-10.
For those who read the Yale Daily News, today's edition has this to say about injuries: "Halfway through the season, one major impediment has been a bad string of luck in the injury department. A whopping seven starters were inactive against Dartmouth, the most head coach Tony Reno said he could recall during his four years in New Haven. More worrisome is that many of those injured do not have official timelines to return. Those who do fail to inspire much hope: wide receiver Bo Hines ’18 said he will not play against Maine after missing four consecutive games and defensive back Foye Oluokun ’17 said he is out for the season."
Finding hard to remain confident as injuries pile up and take their toll.Maine 31, Yale 10
Kudos to Chase Simino for pegging the rain, and being quite close on the final score!
