Sunny skies, only sunny skies
The forecast for Saturday's Homecoming game against Penn is absolutely perfect. Sunny and the low 60's!
I know some of us are bummed by the 1-3 start... but there are still a lot of things to be encouraged about when it comes to this year's Lions:
1) Austin Knowlin is assaulting the Columbia record book, and seems poised to break the big one when it comes to WR's: receiving yards for a season. Don Lewis currently holds that record at an even 1,000 yards.
2) Jordan Davis is finally proving to be a threat at running back. Last week's weak game at Lafayette was not really his fault as he only had 11 carries. As long as Columbia isn't facing a huge defensive line, he has a chance to be dangerous.
3) More freshman, like Alex Gross and Matt Moretto are emerging on defense. It's a work in progress, but it's fun watching these young freshmen and sophomores develop on the field.
And besides, this is PENN! Penn has become the bitterest of rivals thanks to Quakers fans and their arrogance and general lack of respect for Columbia. This is probably the weakest Penn team we've seen since 1991, and this is the time to finally end what has been an 11-year losing streak to Al Bagnoli and co.
