Andrew Kennedy’s remarkable contribution to the Lions in 2010 has paid off with a slot on the 2010 Walter Camp All-America team.
Kennedy was the only Ivy Leaguer to make the team.
If you were waiting for a big decision from the Patriot League on athletic scholarships for football… keep waiting.
The Patriot presidents decided to simply table the great debate over this issue today.
I assume this means the folks at scholarship-issuing Fordham will have to accelerate their search for a new conference to join, as it makes little sense for the Rams to remain in league that bars them from winning the championship.
Such a conference move might put Columbia’s annual Liberty Cup game against Fordham in jeopardy.
But either way, make no mistake that this “tabled vote” is nothing less than an actual “no” vote against scholarships.
Keeping the status quo is a move against scholarships, period.
