We have played great against the top teams except for Syracuse.  Were down to Maryland by 2 with a few minutes to play AND we had chances to tie.  Didn't and they scored a few at the end.  Same with C

Don’t be so sensitive to differing opinions.  I was specifically referring to the face off.  Played well vs higher level teams, yes.  Against the AE, not so well.  Imagine barely squeaking by AE teams

Outstanding Def, except the same guys a few times.  Actually we hit the crossbar several times on O, it is the just terrible pass attempts that killed us on Off.  They lose concentration or something.

Could be heavy rains Friday night, but not sure when. Based on some game action this year do they just concede the draw and put a long stick on TD? I’ve no confidence that they can stay with Yale.

It's going to be ugly.

That was done mostly because Jones was injured.  Last game he was hurting but sucked it up and played well.  IF he does not play we might be in trouble.

TD is so much more athletic than Jones that even if Jones is able to get the clamp he'll have a hard time getting to open space. The problem with putting a pole out there against TD is that not only is he the best FOGO in the country, starting to look like the best ever, but if the pole can't get on him and force him back it will give Yale an unsettled situation which has been our biggest defensive weakness.

Jones and Altamari have to go after TD hard, but clean and make them 50/50 ground balls somehow.

Don’t be so sensitive to differing opinions.  I was specifically referring to the face off.  Played well vs higher level teams, yes.  Against the AE, not so well.  Imagine barely squeaking by AE teams and even losing to Vermont.   If we play without turnovers and sloppy play, we might stay in the game.  We need to swarm TD and pound him.

Sorry not sensitive at all.  Just don't like the constant negativity!   I am just as unhappy as many others.  I would prefer looking at things from a glass half full perspective and with optimism.

I am going to remain optimistic that we keep TD in the 65% range which would be below his season average, but to expect much better than that would be unrealistic. My bigger concern against Yale is our off ball defense, and keeping the Yale scorers from getting point blank looks at Nate.

Agree.
