After Big Red’s disappointing 19-14 loss at the hands of the Bucknell Bison last Saturday, things are quite out of order. Things need fixing, and the responsible people know this. That match, the Big Red quarterback was a bit off. Robert Somborn had difficulty performing as expected or desired. He was at 152 yards with a touchdown and an interception by the end of the game. In comparison, Bucknell’s QB Joey Defloria was a total force.
Big Red is struggling with their quarterbacks, and it’s no hidden secret. Four different starting QBs were tested back in 2014 and nothing ever worked out quite well. Whether Somborn is to blame or the management’s inefficiency in properly replacing him — that I don’t know.
There are powerful players on the Big Red team as well. The one I will mention most importantly is perhaps running back Luke Hagy. His performance was commendable. He finished with 18 carries for 105 yards in the match against the Bison.
Yale Bulldogs are a particularly offensive lineup. It will be hard to keep up with their offenses and tackle it. This challenge is something we all know was going to come, sooner or later, for the Big Red.
Yale has won the last two matchups against Cornell. The latest was last year. Their defense has been under a bit of critique owing to recent performances this year, bit most probably they don’t need their absolute best defense in this match at all.
QB Morgan Roberts will lead the way, as usual.
