Scouting Towson

QB Chris Hart remains the starter for Towson

Towson has its game notes and two-deeps up for this Saturday's game against the Lions

If you think there’s a way to get a real grip on this Towson team this season, congratulations… because after two losses to highly superior opponents, (Indiana and Villanova), and a 5 OT win over Coastal Carolina, I’m pretty stumped.

Towson Head Coach Rob Ambrose seems to have a star in QB Chris Hart, but Hart turned the ball over too many times against the Wildcats last week and Ambrose angrily pulled him out of the game. But with Hart’s strong running ability, I’m not surprised he continues to hold the #1 spot.

Many of you probably know about WR Hakeem Moore, a major deep threat who has found a way to make big plays in each of Towson’s three games.

But I’m also a little worried about RB Tremayne Dameron. He’s a top performer who hasn’t had a chance to show what he can do very much, with the exception of a 100+-yard game against Coastal Carolina. However, Dameron may be a little down this Saturday because he lists his favorite pro athlete as Braylon Edwards. (It’s been a bad 48 hours for Braylon).

The elephant in the room here is Towson’s schedule. Coach Ambrose et al must be desperate for a win because their next two games are against UMass and James Madison. UMass just came darn close to knocking off Michigan at the Big House, and JMU is still riding high after that stunning win over Virginia Tech in Blacksburg.

This all comes back to my point that this is a very important game for the Lions. I know it’s not an Ivy contest, but a win on Saturday would speak volumes about this Columbia team.

“Wall Street Mafia?”

Why would Wall Street insiders like the folks at Bloomberg be doing a story about the well-documented and long-established Ivy League pipeline to Wall Street?

I don’t know, but I’m glad they did.

More publicity, especially inside audiences like Bloomberg’s, is good.

Our league could benefit from the apparent strong interest in Ivy football at The Wall Street Journal and now Bloomberg.

Bloomberg TV also sent a reporter to cover the Harvard-Yale game last year.

Baseball Gem

Another GREAT story for Columbia was in the New York Post today. It was about a top baseball recruit, and it’s a feather in the cap for the whole athletic department.

Nice article indeed. Columbia has a tremendous baseball program and the new Satow Stadium is just fantastic. Columbia Lou Gehrig would be very proud of the beautiful new facility. Good luck to the young man and his family!

And so would HOF'er Eddie "Cocky" Collins.

from Spec: “Mike Stephens will not be playing for the remainder of this season,” head coach Norries Wilson confirmed today. “He unfortunately broke his arm when he caught that punt.”

Towson a 2 1/2 point favorite ?
Take the points and run. We win outright. Sorry to hear the news about Stephens. All too often skill position players get hurt fielding punts or kickoffs...
