Bye Bye Blackshear

We've known for a while that outstanding offensive line coach Cheston Blackshear had joined the staff of new Head Coach Mike Locksley at the University of New Mexico, and now we see official publication of that here.
We wish Coach Blackshear the best, but we will miss him. I, for one, really thought he put together a big improvement for the Columbia offensive line especially this past season. I have a feeling Mr. Blackshear will be a head coach one day.
Which Ivy for Miller?
Promising incoming offensive lineman Scott Ward has a teammate at Newport Harbor High School named Danny Miller who sounds like a special player. His coach told the local paper this week that Miller will likely go to an Ivy League school, but didn't name any names. Miller is a CB/RB who seems like a great kid according to this article from 2007.
