More analysis to come, but to me the headline is that Towson is back on the schedule after nine years. This, even though Towson is no longer flirting with Patriot League status.

There are no other surprises, save for the fact that Duquesne, Marist, Iona, and Georgetown are not on the schedule despite the Lions getting home contests against each in the last three seasons.

FYI, Jake, Nico Pappas was selected to the prestigious 26-man 2007 Massachusetts High School All-State Football Team. The link is http://www.boston.com/sports/schools/extras/schools-blog/2007/12/allstate_football.htm. Pappas was selected to the team as a defensive lineman, although he is also an outstanding fullback--6'1, 231 with 4.8 speed. Incoming freshmen, Nico Pappas, Nick Mistretta and Tim Waller have all been named First Team All-State. That's obviously great news for Lion Football Fans. Do we know who else has committed to Columbia? Any quarterbacks?

The last 4 weeks of this schedule seem particularly difficult since 3 are on the road and all of the opponents could be Ivy League Champions. I just hope that we come out of the gate faster, and show the kind of improvement that our young team showed promise of in 2007.
