Marist Game Video is now Available

You can now see the video of the 31-7 win over Marist at GoColumbiaLions.com.

I've been told some of the technical problems with the video on Saturday were because of the rain, but they will all be worked out in time for the homecoming game on Oct. 13th.

But again, let's all stop and think about how great it is that we have on-demand video of Columbia games.

What is the best way (place)to get stats for individual games?
Is there "game tracker" available?

Do you mean live stats when the game is in progress or after the game?

Gametracker is available for Columbia by clicking on an icon on the AD website's football schedule. The format was changed from last year , and it did not work very well on Saturday. Stats are up on the home team's website within a few hours, but I usually go to ESPN.COM if I want to take look. Within a day or so, Columbia has a full sheet on its games with stats, play-by-play, etc.

PS, Jake, at the risk of giving you a swelled head I thought that you were really excellent on Saturday. I loved the Don Jackson interview. How about an interview with Ray Tellier, a great guy and a very decent man who was a major player in the search for Coach Wilson? One piece of advice: you had some dead air time at the end of the game. I'd have a few index cards with filler material ready to go if needed.

Is the Princeton game audio and video available on Sidelion Pass this Saturday?

Thanks. That's a great suggestion about Ray Tellier. I will look into it.

BTW,that wasn't dead air you were hearing... it was me sucking wind after running down the stadium steps to get the postgame interview with Coach Wilson, and then running up the stadium, (two steps at a time), to get back into the booth. I forgot to take 30 seconds to catch my breath!

The roster is down to 98. There two 19s and two 30s. No one at 63, 67 and 71. (99+2-3=98) Who has left the roster?

We loved being at the game. It was great to see all the fans, the band and cheerleaders. It makes for a much more exciting game and gives our boys a lift.
I was wondering if you could give us the words to our fight song "Roar Lions Roar." I haven't quite gotten all the words and would love to sing along. Thanks

Here is at least part of the very rarely sung verse:

When the bold teams of old wore the blue and white,
Deeds of fame made their name here at old Columbia
Now ---(I forget the rest, and it's not published in the program)
-- (Same as above)
Hear the Lion roar his pride
As the Men of Morningside
Follow the blue and white
to Vict'ry!

Then the rousing chorus comes in!
Sorry my memory is so spotty ehre. too.

PS: "Roar Lion Roar" was obviously written in the days before co-education.

I think they just wanted to know the words of the chorus, which is all the band plays anyway:

"Roar Lion roar, and wake the echoes of the Hudson Valley

Fight on to vict'ry evermore
while the sons of knickerbocker rally 'round

Columbia! Columbia!

Shouting her name forever.

Roar, Lion Roar! For Alma Mater on the Hudson Shore.

Jake, you're showing your relative youth. Because there really was a time, not so very long ago, when both the verse and chorus were sung. That the abysmal band (Marist sure won that one) may not know it at games doesn't quite alums excuse not knowing it.

"America the Beautiful" and "The Wanderer" both have a verse and chorus format, too, come to think of it. And I was trying to be helpful.

I know you were and we appreciate it... I was just worried the poster wasn't getting the info he/she wanted.

My freshman year, they still sold t-shirts with the whole song's lyrics on the back. But I've nver heard the whole version played or sung anywhere in 20+ years.

"Roar, Lion"

When the bold teams of old wore the blue and white,
Deeds of fame made their name here at old Columbia,
Nowadays, we can praise fighting teams again,
Hear the Lion roar his pride,
While the men of Morningside,
Follow the blue and white to victory!

Roar, Lion, Roar
And wake the echoes of the Hudson Valley
Fight on to victory evermore
While the sons of Knickerbocker
Rally 'round Columbia, Columbia!
Shouting her name forever
Roar, Lion, Roar
For Alma Mater on the Hudson shore!
