Of course not. But we were up 21-0 in the third quarter and the game came down to the final play. We played not to lose in the second half and I put that entirely on the coach staff. The kids played hard and earned this win, and they should celebrate it.Did you feel better with a last second loss against Vanderbilt? Or when we were 4 touchdown underdogs against Wyoming and we lost by 2 points at the end of the game??
Really, the Courant got the score wrong...Did the Courant reporter leave before the Yale TD?
UConn hangs on to beat Yale, 21-15, bringing end to losing streak that’s lasted 11 games and nearly two yearsUConn jumped out to a three-TD lead and held on to beat Yale, 21-9, to end an 11-game losing streak dating back nearly two years.www.courant.com
We were up three scores and almost lost… Literally seconds away from losing to a 2-2 FCS Yale. It’s not on the players, definitely on the coaches, but that was a disappointing win. If you did cartwheels because we barely won good for you.Did you feel that way when Kemba broke ankles to make the 3? It's a win. Not a loss.
I think most Yale undergrads get substantial financial assistance from Yale including athletes. Yale has also had players in NFL and CFLI'm happy for these kids to finally win a game.
What blows my mind is that we have a roster full of FBS scholarship level players. Yale does not offer football scholarships. There is zero reason our O-Line should not have been man handling them and opening up holes all day long. There is zero reason we should have only beaten them by 6. There is zero reason this game should have come down to the final play.
Everyone wants to say losing to Holy Cross was bad. At least they have players who are recruited and given scholarships. Yale is not on that level. Yet our team that has spent all of last season getting stronger and faster got pushed around and stuffed by these same players.
I know a win is a win but watching this game was just shocking....
