There seems to be a lack of clarity between what is and is not legal although, at the least, the Yale team was engaging in controversial play and was out to win at all costs.
Also, there were more than two Lehigh players injured during the game – as many as 6 or 7 and some for the season.
Lehigh was ahead by at least three touchdowns when the chop blocking started and this wiped out Lehigh’s timing and momentum. In 50 years of watching Lehigh football, I have never seen anything like this – with the game being continuously stopped due to injured Lehigh players who had to be helped off the field.
I do not think we should pretend this do not happen – for whatever reason – as that game was a major factor in our poor season and we cannot have a repeat this year.
