It's Game Day!


It's almost time for me to head down to Baltimore for today's big game against Towson.

Please make sure to tune in to the game on 970AM here in the New York area, or logon to GoColumbiaLions.com for a free audio feed.

Rain is expected today in the Baltimore area, but it's not clear if it will be constant. Towson plays on FieldTurf, (like Columbia), and I have found that surface to be not so slippery even after heavy rain.

My halftime interview will be with Lion football and basketball star George Starke '71. George went on to become the "Head Hog" with the Washington Redskins and was an integral part of the Redskins' Super Bowl XVII championship team.

Terrific interview of Starke, Jake! Getting him to talk about the Hogs as well as his own activities, reactions to the NFL was very interesting.

Jake, I tried listening on radio to yesterday's game. What went wrong? Two weeks in a row we have a chance to put a team away and lose on a late TD. Is it our defensive scheme? Why can't we make the key stops when the game is on the line? Is it that we are still learning what it takes to win?

George Starke was also a very good basketball player at Columbia--not tall, but incredibly strong and mobile underneath--he had some Charles Barkley attributes and similarities.

Second week in a row where the statistician is using "fuzzy math" in recording current game and overall stats.....particularly with regard to defensive stats.

New system?

Puzzled by how tackle stats being compiled. Looks like they are adding solo tackles to 50%of assisted tackles. In past have added 100% of each. Is this how the league is doing it for everyone?
