The Ivy League weekly football honorees have been named and no Lions are among them. That's not surprising since the league tends to favor players who have starred in intraleague games.
But I do wonder if Defensive Player of the Week Andrew Serrano of Brown really had a better game than Columbia's Josh Martin.
Columbia's next opposing QB, Tommy Wornham of Princeton, was named offensive player of the week.
CB Calvin Otis was recognized by as a "performer of the week" by CollegePerformance.com.
Otis's fine play also gave us a hint about the health of Owen Fraser. After his second pick, Otis was greeted on the sidelines by a jumping Fraser who certainly seemed like he'll be healthy enough to play this Saturday against Princeton.

If you missed Nick Gerst's nice moves as he scored his first collegiate TD Saturday, you can now see it on YouTube.
Back in the Stands
After three years of calling the games from the press box, it had been a long time since I sat in the stands for an entire game at Wien Stadium.
It was a nice feeling, and the best part was that my two young daughters didn't want to leave!
I also like that they moved the pregame picnic area right in front of the stadium, which makes for a better looking "scene" and atmosphere.
As far as getting to the games, I really recommend getting there early.
