Bushnell News and Telconference Reminder

Doug Jackson, Columbia's first Bushnell Winner

News of Jesse Parks’ death puts a sad cloud over what was some unrelated good news for Ivy football that came out earlier today.

It won't be as great as the Heisman presentation ceremony on national TV, but the Ivy football MVP is going to get some great added attention beginning this year.

The league is going to give the Bushnell Cup MVP award winner this year, (and hopefully this will become a tradition), his special due with a trophy award ceremony in early December.

My guess is that the All Ivy team will be announced a few days after the season is over, (as always), and just the announcement of the Bushnell Cup winner will be withheld until this ceremony.

But this is great news as our league’s MVP deserves as much special recognition as possible. And the growing partnership with the National Football Foundation is a major plus.

How great would it be for Columbia to grab its first Bushnell Cup winner since 1982 on this much larger stage?

Coaches Teleconference and Poll Release Tomorrow!

I'll be reporting on the coaches annual preseason teleconference starting around 11 AM tomorrow. The preseason poll predicting the final standings in the league will be released at that time.

If I may be so bold as to predict the prediction, I am expecting Penn to be voted the preseason favorite, Harvard second, and Columbia will probably be picked fifth.

Is this a coaches poll? If so, I think Harvard will be picked first, Penn second and we will edge out Brown for third. If we beat Penn, we will win the league barring serious injuries.
