Some Things You Missed...

A few things that you missed if you weren't at the Fordham game:

1) The members of the Columbia team who didn't make the travel squad spent most of the game standing up and cheering for the Lions. It was nice to see.

2) The crowd was pretty vocal. Jack Coffey field officially holds about 7,000 people, and the official attendance was 3,721.. which doesn't seem right to me, I thought it would be closer to 5,000.

3) Craig Hormann did not have a great night, but again he showed good poise on 3rd down which bodes well for the rest of the season. On third down passing, Hormann was six of 10 for 57 yards, two 1st downs, one TD and no interceptions. It's not great to throw the ball on 3rd down 10 times and only get two first downs out of it, but other than that Hormann was sharp on those big plays.

4) Many of Austin Knowlin's catches were spectacular. It's hard to say how much he's improved from what was already a strong rookie season. It's basically worth coming to a Columbia game just to see him play.

Jake, there were a lot of surprises on the two deep. Lots of first years and a few surprise starters in the sophomore class. Can you enlighten us?

A lot of this had to do with injuries, but I've learned that the coaches wanted to mix things up on the O-line after not quite seeing what they wanted in camp.

One of Knowlin's catches on the near side of the field at about the 30 yard line was ESPN highlight reel-worthy. Our other receivers will benefit from his impending double coverage.
