The Yale-Brown scrimmage will be played at the Yale Bowl on Labor Day weekend this year, but the date/time is still TBD.
Incoming Freshman RB Andrew Grinde apparently left Yale prior to the start of camp for unknown reasons. With the talent returning at RB for the Bulldogs, even a stellar Freshman RB would find himself four slots deep on the depth chart. Whatever the true reason is for Grinde’s departure, we’re hoping we see Grinde on the field next season!
Tyler Varga confirmed through various media outlets that his decision to retire was due to health concerns. We can’t blame a fellow Eli for using his brain power to preserve his mind while he still can.
Yale’s first opponent, Colgate, will kick off the season at Syracuse on September 2nd. We’ll have an in-depth breakdown of their squad in the days following that contest.
