Columbia-Penn Keys to the Game

1) The Lions defense needs to make a statement. Joe Sandberg must be stopped; if you take him out, you take out the Penn offense, period.

2) Craig Hormann must avoid the catastrophic mistakes. No INT's inside the opponent's five yard lines, and no momentum-killing picks either.

3) Jordan Davis and the offensive line need to produce a credible running attack. The 100+ yard game Davis had at Princeton proves the Lions can run against Ivy opponents.

It's as simple as 1, 2, 3.

The key is to neutralize Naheem with our blocking schemes if we want to mount a running game. It will require running with a two back set. As for Sandberg, I think tha the additional weight has slowed him down. We need to wrap up.
