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.

Danny Miller

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.

Jake, I note from the article that Danny Miller is Jewish. While we had had some great Jewish players in the Ivies over the years, are you aware of any great Jewish running backs? The last one I can recall is Danny Sachs from Princeton in the late 1950s.

Columbia's leading rusher for a couple of years in the early 80's was Mike Goldman.
