Bulletin Board Material
A writer for the local paper in the Hanover, NH area has laid it all on the line against our Lions.
To be fair, columnist Don Mahler is mostly trying to fire up the locals to get out there and support the Big Green. But he takes some rough shots that include:
"The Lions are here for only one reason on Saturday: To act out their role as sacrificial lambs. Historically, Columbia has been the doormat of the Ivy League."
(Perhaps, but the Lions have won six of the last 11 games against the Big Green).
Anyway, I'd like this to serve as an added motivation to our players. They can disappoint those who are expecting a Dartmouth win and also show them how much more improved Columbia really is.
The diner in winter
Looking in on Larry
As I did two years ago, I'm looking forward to visiting with former Columbia Head Coach Larry MacElreavy at the diner he co-owns with his wife Fran. Miss Bellows Falls Diner is just minutes away from the Dartmouth campus on the Vermont side of the border. I had a great time talking about Columbia football in the 80's the last time I visited with Coach Mac, but I think I remembered Fran's buttermilk pancakes just a bit more.
If you have the time on gameday, or any day this weekend, I highly recommend getting over and eating there.
