Solid Mante punt

I’m going to keep beating this drum — in a low-scoring game like this field position is crucial and the Bears find themselves in a hole as they begin their drive with 1:40 remaining in the 3rd quarter. Tom Mante just booted another solid punt inside the Brown 10-yard line. This Bear offense now needs […]

Defense bends but doesn’t break

Sorry to go back to the same thing, but this Yale defense simply bends but doesn’t break. The Bears were able to drive into Yale territory but stalled and turned the ball over on downs. If only this team had an offense that could put some points on the board consistently — at times it […]

Offense unable to take advantage

Despite the field position and the 26-yard Balsam reception that brought the ball to the Brown 8-yard line, the Bulldogs had to settle yet again for a field goal. They may have taken 6-3 lead, but one has to wonder if the Yale defense can continue holding the Bear offense to nothing. The Eli offense […]

Balsam coming up big

After 3 receptions for 77 yards in the first half, sophomore Peter Balsam has come up big for the Bulldogs so far today. His 26-yard reception just now put the ball inside the Brown 20.

Christodoulou makes up for earlier miscue

After Brown opened the second half with a 3 and out and were forced to punt, Christodoulou made up for his earlier muff with a 42-yard punt return. The Bulldogs will now begin their first series of the half on the Brown 39-yard line. This may be the spark the Elis needed to put some […]

Another Yale miscue

Yale’s playing with fire. The offense was driving down the field again, but this time the drive was halted by a poorly thrown interception by Hart. The Yale defense has been able to keep the Bear offense at bay thus far, but an explosive offense like Brown’s can explode at anytime. Yale can’t continue giving […]

Tough field position for Elis

Brown’s Robert Ranney just pinned the Bulldogs inside their own 5-yard line with a great punt. With 3:35 left in the half, Yale just needs to move the ball down field and avoid giving Brown a short field before the half.

YPMB has sousaphones

The Yale Precision Marching Band just chanted “We got sousaphones!”. I’m at a loss for words.

Yale gets on the board

After a solid drive aided by a 15-yard facemask penalty against the Bears, the Elis were able to respond to Brown’s field goal with a field goal of their own. With 6:23 remaining in the first half, the teams are all squared at 3.

Brown drive stalls

After marching down the field with some success into Yale territory, the Eli defense bent, but didn’t break — again. The Bears settled for a 39-yard field goal to put the first points on the scoreboard. With 8:52 remaining in the first half, Brown leads 3-0.

Brown offensive struggles

By watching this game so far, you’d think that the questionable offense heading into the contest was Brown’s and not Yale’s. The Bears can’t get much of anything going and are pretty much one-dimensional. The only run plays they’ve tried have been direct snaps and end arounds. That will make things a lot easier for […]
