Well, the 28-6 loss to previously 0-5 Dartmouth didn't produce as many kudos to individual players as we'd all like to see for obvious reasons.
But aside from Columbia game MVP Adam Mehrer, I do have some congratulations to hand out.
-Ray Rangel made the most of his carries again, putting up 81 yards rushing on just 15 attempts.
-Kalasi Huggins made a nice interception, turning aroung just at the right time while breaking off super-tight coverage.
-I know Greg Guttas is having his problems with placekicking, but he punted very well, including running down that high snap on his first punt of the day. It didn't end well as that punt was still blocked, but he saved a TD on that particular play.
-Mike Stephens had a nifty kickoff return into Dartmouth territory to help set up CU's only score of the day.
-The entire Columbia offensive line did a good job.
-Kickoff and punt coverage was improved.
I know the loss on Saturday still hurts, but a win this coming Saturday against Yale on national TV, (YES Network), would be... nice. We have not beaten the Elis since 2001 and you know the national press will make a big deal out of this game because it is the first-ever meeting of two Ivy football teams with African-American head coaches.
