Bruce Woods’s Big Green Alert blog reports that Dartmouth is getting a good looking wide receiver transfer from Clemson . His name is Robbie Anthony.
Anthony should help the Big Green put together a nice wide receiving corps for 2011. Now the question is whether the QB will be able to take full advantage of that corps. There are some misgivings about whether Conner Kempe can take the Green to the next level.
The Kempe story is something everyone should remember considering the fact that all eight Ivy teams have starting QB’s returning this season.
Just because those starters are back, it doesn’t mean they’ll all begin the new season in the top spots… but most probably will.
Draft Potential, and Ivy Promise
There’s a good chance that not one, not two, but three Yale players will be picked in the NFL draft this weekend or signed to free agent contracts.
They are Tom McCarthy, Adam Money and Sean Williams
That would be an impressive for them, but kind of embarrassing for Eli head coach Tom Williams and his predecessor Jack Siedlecki.
How a team with three decent NFL prospects playing for it at the same time could produce just 11 Ivy wins over the past three years makes little sense.
It makes even less sense that Yale has not been a serious contender for the Ivy title, (despite a decent 5-2 Ivy performance last season),
To be fair, Williams seems to have improved the team after a disappointing 2008 campaign. But he still hasn’t produced a win over Harvard and losing to the Cantabs is what got Siedlecki fired.
Perhaps Yale can fire Siedlecki again.
