Just One More...

As we all know, our Lions finished 2-8 in 2008 despite playing very well in a lot of close losses where we were "this close" to grabbing great victories.

I know we want to see as many wins as we can every season, but if a magic genie came out of the bottle and gave you just one chance to turn one loss from this past season into a win, which one would it be?

For me, the answer is pretty simple: Princeton. Winning that game in front of the big Homecoming crowd would have meant so much to so many people.

It would have been our first Homecoming win since 2000.

It would have put us two places higher in the Ivy standings.

I know beating Harvard, Brown or Penn would have been more "impressive," but a win against the Tigers would have reaped the most tangible rewards.

As it is, we did get two solid Ivy wins over Dartmouth and Cornell and showed all the signs of having at least the basic tools to compete for the first division in 2009.

Have a happy new year everyone!

Yale-- because I am still smarting from that low life McLeod's somersault and that low life Jack's calling two time outs and then punching in a meaningless TD three years ago. The smirk on their faces in the post game interview is something I'm still mad about. At least both of them had lousy years and Jack is history.

Princeton-- We had them on the run in a thrilling comeback that would have culminated in an impressive victory before the Alumni crowd. Who
knows what that might have done to
stimulate a few extra donations to the University? Also, I root for Columbia and anyone playing Princeton.
