The New York Post has a short, but sweet preview of the Columbia-Fordham Liberty Cup game in today's edition. There are some interesting quotes from the Fordham folks that makes it clear the Rams are fired up about the game.
The Boston Herald does a short preview of the Ivy season where they say Indianapolis Colts scouts were apparently impressed with Craig Hormann when they came to scout Clifton Dawson at the Harvard game last year. Who knew?
Perhaps more interestingly, the Herald also talks about Columbia's apparent plans to go with a two tight end set this season. That would give Columbia a little more run blocking help, and with the Lions mostly short passing game, trading a slit end for a tight end seems logical. We'll see how it all pans out soon enough.
Harvard's game notes for the Crimson's opener at Holy Cross are out. As expected, sophomore Cheng Ho gets the unenviable task of having to replace Clifton Dawson as the starting tailback. Backing Ho up is a freshman, Gino Gordon.
Sophomore Patrick Long has replace senior Matt Schindel as the starting placekicker, but Schindel is getting the start as the punter.
