Otis Elevates

Jeff Otis in 2004

Perhaps some of you have seen the sobering reports that about 80% of NFL players are essentially BROKE within two years of retirement.

Jeff Otis '05, won't be one of them.

Jeff made a valiant effort to stick with the pros, but has now made a great career move to business school.

Jeff's 2003 season at Columbia was one of the gutsiest performances seen by a Lion QB over the past generation. His 17 TD passes stood as the best number of throwing scores by a Columbia passer in the post-John Witkowski '84 era until Sean Brackett tossed 19 this season.

Best of luck to Jeff!

great story but clearly wasn't an English major at Columbia.

He'll always stand out in my memory for that last-second TD pass to beat the Tigers at Princeton!

Overall, he played tough.

Big win in mens' basketball on the road this afternoon, against American, which had been undefeated. Green and Starks are living up to their hype. With a wide open Ivy League this winter we may be able to make some noise.

I don't know how "wide-open" the Ivy League is really going to be this basketball season, but I do see that Kyle Smith seems to be a better game manager than Joe Jones. He's also better at getting the most out of his personnel, I suspect. (If only Jon Baumann and Jason Miller had had him as their coach.)

And it's going to be interesting to watch Columbia basketball again. It's a nice start, in other words. But let's not overrate it as anything other than a start. Not yet, anyway.

The first article reports that Mike Tyson spent $140,000 on two Bengal tigers. I am pleased to learn that the movie "The Hangover" is based upon historically accurate facts.
