was at the Harvard hoop game last night-absolutely embarrassed by the Crimson. We have the athletes-just don't get how we get blown out by a just better then average Harvard squad-who was much smaller but quicker then us. Don't let the BC win fool you as BC is awful this year.

Jake, what are you doing blogging at 4:43AM? Must have been having nightmares over the basketball fiasco this weekend.

If we can manage a sweep over the
P & P boys this coming weekend (admittedly a tall order) then all is forgiven.

Jake, I have a question about our recruiting. I am a long time supporter of the program, which includes financial support. To what extent do we find ourselves at a disadvantage -- if at all -- in recruiting players, either because we lack the necessary funds to recruit aggressively agains tour opponents, or because we can't give sufficiently attractive financial aid? Put simply, do we have the money to go head to head on recruiting players?

I think that a very long time ago, finances were an issue. But now, we have an advantage in that arena against many other Ivies. If we have any handicaps its going up against the powerful names Harvard, Yale, and Princeton have in the heartland, (I've lived in the Midwest and a lot of people really haven't heard much of Columbia or even Brown), and Penn in the general Jersey, Pennsylvania area. Harvard seems to be getting a lot of top talent who seek Harvard out. Yale and Princeton not as much, but it still happens. Penn has always recruited aggressively and the kids in the Northeast know the Quakers are usually winners.

As the parent of one of the recruits from the Midwest, Jake is accurate in his assessment of recruiting. My son took offical visits to Penn, Princeton and Columbia. Coach Wilson, Dr. Murphy and the staff need to be commended. They made the difference, along with the quality of the young men already at Columbia. Go Lions!
