Now that we've finally got a game within reasonable distance (2 1/2 hours from Albany) for most fans:

Yale Tailgating Rules

 

The 'Fan Guide'on Yale's site hasn't been updated to say that Lot A, the preferred lot for visitors, isn't open this year, so all cars will go to Lot D, unless overflow is needed. Lots open at 9 am. $5

Yale Parking Guide

 

The Visitors reserved seating is thru Portals 1 - 3 on the east side of the bowl. General Admission is in the end zones.

The Seating Chart has links to show the views from some sections.

What's the average attendance for football games there as of late?

They had just under 10,000 for Georgetown, but that was on Yom Kippur. Non-Harvard games average around 15K, but we're probably not a big draw for them.

 

Early weather prediction is partly cloudy, in the 60s.

As expected, not a single Ivy fan recognizes that even in a down year for us, we are still probably the favorite in this game...

At least they haven't resorted to name-calling like '19th century German composer' (Wagner) or 'convent school' (Sacred Heart). I'll wait until after this weekend before addressing their comments like either Dartmouth sleep-walked thru the SHU game or Sacred Heart is not a bad team and Fink is one of the best QBs they've seen in the last few years, or how playing the NEC weakens the whole Ivy League.

 

OTOH I can't wait until they get their wish to play 'real Division I teams' again, even though by that they're only meaning the 'scholastic elite' D-I, always listing only Army, Duke, Stanford and a couple of others.

Every team plays a "klunker game" in the course of a season. New Hampshire got beat by Rhode Island, Michigan struggled with UMASS, etc. Was last Saturday a klunker? I hope so but I cant be sure.

 

The Defense never looked better then it did on opening day. Dilella played better against Maine and had moments against SFA but the offense is prone to fumbling or throwing a horrible pick that costs us an opportunity or its returned for points or sets up a short field for points. Against DU our D looked awful until the 4th, no pass rush and their rb got 100yards, I wont mention the coverage by our dbs.

 

If we can get by Yale and be 2-2 It will be what we all thought we would be after 4 games (with wins against Yale and DU, not Maine and SFA). But thats the end of the excuses. DU will lose 2 conference games this year as will everyone with the possible exception of RMC.

 

8-3 looks better then 6-5.

Now we're starting to get some good old Ivy superiority talk going on in the Yale thread over there......one poster at least recognizes that Yale may have a problem with us (and most other NEC teams)....

 

(Btw - if you couldn't tell I'm trying to forget last week's debacle and move on to whooping up on some smart kids).

A gorgeous Fall Saturday . . . crisp, sunny, beautiful sky, colors beginning to turn . . . wouldn't it be great to have a HOME football game on a day like this -- or even in SEPTEMBER . . . just one game, even?
