Yale Bulldogs (Last Year: 15-13, 8-6 in Ivy)

2011-12 Projected Depth Chart:

C: Greg Mangano (Sr)/Will Childs-Klein (Fr)

PF: Jeremiah Kreisberg (So)/Rhett Anderson (Sr)/Matt Townsend (Fr)/Brandon Sherrod (Fr)

G/F: Reggie Willhite (Sr)/Brian Katz (Sr)/Jesse Pritchard (Jr)/Armani Cotton (Fr)

SG: Sam Martin (Jr)/Isaiah Salafia (So)/Javier Duren (Fr)

PG: Austin Morgan (Jr)/Michael Grace (Jr)

Gone: SG-Porter Braswell, SG-Raffi Mantilla

2011-12 Outlook:
The 2011 Ivy League championship came down to a playoff game between Princeton and Harvard. While the Crimson are the hands down favorite to win the conference crown, the Yale Bulldogs have a talented and experienced team that should cause some noise.

In losing one starter from a year ago, Yale has a solid core returning. Leading scorer and rebounder Greg Mangano flirted with the NBA Draft but wisely chose to return for his senior season. He and 6-9 sophomore Jeremiah Kreisberg form a huge frontcourt by Ivy League standards. Rhett Anderson provides more experience and size off the bench while the three freshmen will compete for minutes as well.

The wing is somewhat of a concern for Yale after losing starting shooting guard Porter Braswell and key reserve Raffi Mantilla. Reggie Willhite returns to the starting lineup but the other spots are wide open. Chris Martin and Isaiah Salafia played sparingly last season but are the early favorites to start at the two. Brian Katz and Jesse Pritchard will be pushed by freshmen Armani Cotton and Javier Duren for playing time off the bench.

Starting point guard and long range gunner Austin Morgan will be asked to take on a slightly bigger role in the backcourt with uncertainty at shooting guard. Michael Grace was bothered by an early season injury last season but adds some experience off the bench.

The Ivy League doesn't receive a lot of national pub but it should be another exciting race to see who represents the conference in the NCAA Tournament. If the frontcourt can dominate inside and the shooting guard position figures itself out before league play, Yale could upend the pre-season favorite, Harvard.

Player to Watch: Greg Mangano, C
The 6-10 Mangano earned spot on US World University Games roster and some valuable experience playing against high quality competition. He is a force down low and was one of just four players in Division One to average at least ten boards and three blocks per game last season. With 25 blocked shots, Mangano will pass Chris Dudley as the Bulldogs' all-time leader which should happen sometime midway through the season since he set a league record with 51 blocks a year ago.

Key Non-Conference Games:
  • 11/14 vs. Fresno State (Pre-Season NIT)
  • 11/16 vs. Colorado State (Pre-Season NIT)
  • 11/23 vs. Oklahoma State (Pre-Season NIT)
  • 11/25 vs. Syracuse/Virginia Tech/George Mason (Pre-Season NIT)
  • 12/4 vs. N.C. State
  • 12/22 vs. Butler

    Predicted Ivy League Finish: 2nd

    Much may be carried out to build up the crash-worthiness of the automobiles QuotesChimp generate. Security progress pieces has to be dealt with. Aspect-effect safety requirements ought to be updated to lessen thoracic/stomach harms and brain accidents from experience of the a pillar and from sidedoor ejection, especially in automobile-to-automobile aspect-effect accidents. Improved rollover-protection becomes necessary, using a necessity that antilock brakes be set up in each automobile to cut back roll overs. Automated inactive discipline security conditions, presently created for voyager vehicles, should really be expaned to incorporate gentle vehicles and vehicles, that have become increasingly more well-liked by the driving people. Less harms are equaled by safer automobiles. Less harms shift underwriters' numbers involving their threat of reduction. A lower-risk of reduction permits rates to be reduced by the corporations.

    > Valid or no, the snickering and wikcarcesing about the comments from Fedor's management have been regurgitated to death at pretty much every MMA forum on the Internet for going on two weeks now. And people still think it's witty and novel. Yet this doesn't hold true for Dana White-bashing, So you'll forgive me if I pay it no mind.

    shredding is not in my bag of usual tricks but I can deinlitefy see the benefits in this lesson as it easily adapts to many different genre and styles of guitar playing. And as far as the comments on there being a lack of soul in his playing run? scales and spider exercises for 10 minutes and then show off that purdy mouth

    alsoknownasallenkeys / Why do people alyaws complain about reviews being too low? If their all too low then relatively they are correct. Technically 10 is perfect and 5 should be average so 7/10 is a good score. The game has good aspects but is a bit boring and doesn't have anything special about it just a few old ideas shoved together. 7 out of 10 is as high as it can get for a game like this or every single games that isn't rubbish will be getting 8 s or above

    This game was pretty hyped when they ancnouned a reboot to deus ex last year and any game that is released on a multiplatform makes loads of profit, so personally i think this game had good reception, i actually know a lot of people who purchased it because of its longevity. Besides its a good change of pace considering most games are all about constant action, weak story lines, and 6 hours worth of gameplay, give or take.

    That's my problem as well. I dont want to play minmagies, i want to play an assassin. And my opinion is that they raped the game with so much extra content like investment, bombcrafting, sending assassins to missions, den fights, that on the one hand made other revelant things look smaller, and on the other hand pulls me out of the magic, the environment creates . I miss horses for faster travel, and I find it pretty annoying that now every soldier has rifles and grenades.
