Odds and Ends
Chris Manna, left, is at Columbia to wrestle
It's been a busy week, and I haven't been able to cover all the things I wanted to on the blog.
-First off, please re-read yesterday's latest installment of the Roger Dennis interview. I've added a new story about Archie Roberts' baseball prowess at the very end and have included some links to stories about Archie's greatest games as a QB.
-I hope none of you missed the news that a former football team captain for high school powerhouse Don Bosco Prep is coming to Columbia. But Chris Manna is joining the wrestling team, not football. Either way, Columbia is happy to have him.
-Former safety Proctor Hug's mom is featured in this great story about a mentoring program at the high school named for Hug's grandfather in Reno, Nevada.
-Here's another great column by Robert Boland of the National Football Post. He pays a nice tribute to former Columbia Head Coach and current Columbia Board of Trustees Chair Bill Campbell.
-Harvard was the last Ivy school to list its incoming football freshmen yesterday. Click here for a convenient one-stop shopping list of all the schools' freshmen from Bruce Wood's Big Green Alert Blog.
