Cornell's Choice

Kent Austin

The Ivy football head coaching ranks are once again complete as Cornell has just announced the hiring of Kent Austin to replace Jim Knowles.

Austin has been the offensive coordinator at Ole Miss for the last two seasons. He is also an Ole Miss grad, (class of 1986), and a legend in Canada.

As a QB for Saskatchewan in 1989 he was the Grey Cup MVP. Then he coached the same Saskatchewan Rough Riders to a Grey Cup in 2007.

On paper, this seems like a great hire for Cornell and probably a great hire for the league.

Speaking of the Ivy League -did anyone catch the replay of "Harvard
wins 29-29"? What an amazing documentary, particularly the interviews with the now middle-aged players, and their recollections of key plays. Incredibly it appeared that Yale's downfall started when they tried to run up the score with a 16 point lead late in the 4th quarter! Was there no such thing as "taking a knee" in the playbooks of the 60's?
