Brown is a tough test for Bulldogs

November 5, 2004 • 0
Yale Rush vs. Brown Brown has an average run defense — but average is not good enough against Rob Carr ’05. Carr is leading the league in all-purpose yardage, averaging over 20 yards more than Harvard’s Clifton Dawson and Princeton’s Greg Fields, who are in a battle for second. Carr is also sixth in Div. »

Elis need to prove offense versus Lions

October 29, 2004 • 0
Yale (3-3, 1-2 Ivy) has so many weapons on offense — and yet somehow it has managed to drop into the bottom half of the league in almost every offensive category. As columnist Michael Menitove ’05 deftly pointed out yesterday, Yale’s offense should be good — it hasn’t been — and head coach Jack Siedlecki »

Bulldogs must exploit Penn’s porous pass ‘D’

October 22, 2004 • 0
No team has won an Ivy championship with two league losses since the University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth and Harvard shared the title in 1982. If Yale (3-2, 1-1 Ivy) is to capture the Ancient Eight championship, the Elis have to defeat Penn (4-1, 2-0) this weekend. Unlike the past two years, No. 22 Penn is »

Yale has faced Lehigh three times in the past decade. But the last time that the Bulldogs bested the Mountain Hawks, the first President Bush was in office.

Gameday: Air attack critical for both sides, but ground game could prove crucial to an another Eli win

October 8, 2004 • 2
Last season Yale pounded Dartmouth 40-17. Dartmouth crammed the box to stop Rob Carr ’05. They contained Carr, but in the process opened themselves up for Alvin Cowan ’05 to throw for 318 yards and run for another 89. I expect Dartmouth will sell their souls to stop Carr again, so the Eli passing game »

Football ready to rebound, but must be careful

October 1, 2004 • 0
Yale run vs. Colgate The Raiders’ run defense is superb. In three games this season, opposing offenses are averaging fewer than 100 yards per game on the ground. Can Yale do better? It’s become impossible to predict the Yale offense. With most of last year’s record-breaking squad returning, we’ve been expecting firepower. Instead, Yale has »

Sobered Elis are prepared to take on Cornell

September 24, 2004 • 0
After last year’s 1-9 season and the graduation of a number of key players, Cornell (0-1) had the dubious honor of being selected to finish last in the Ivy League this year. Yale (1-0), on the other hand, tied the University of Pennsylvania for the most first-place votes. But one week after the start of »

Eagles swoop in when Bucs drop Lawrie ’04

September 6, 2004 • 0
August 31 was a sad day in Tampa for the Ivy League and recent alumnus Nate Lawrie ’04. The Bucs released three Ancient Eight alums Tuesday — Lawrie; Casey Cramer, Lawrie’s minicamp roommate from Dartmouth; and veteran NFL quarterback Jason Garrett, a Princeton alumnus. Lawrie had signed a contract with Tampa Bay almost exactly a »

Though this year’s NCAA regional tournament will be played on Yale’s home course next weekend, the Eli golfers will likely be looking on as spectators. The Bulldogs carded an eighth-place 625 (308-317) at the URI Newport Invitational this weekend. The Elis’ disappointing performance at the Green Valley Country Club has likely taken them out of »
