Goings is Coming!

Goings in the pocket

Yes, I had fun with that headline!

Friendship Collegiate HS QB Percee Goings has accepted an offer from Columbia.

It appears Goings will be the first Friendship player to come to play football for the Lions.

Goings certainly looks like the second coming of Sean Brackett--excellent dual threat passing and running quarterbook with smarts. Goings might even be a bit faster than Brackett, although our man Brackett has that uncanny ability to shift into multiple gears. Give credit to the Lion Coaching Staff for bringing in two very promising quarterbacks in Prince and Goings. I guess our new cheer is "Let Goings Lions!"

Looks like a great runner and passer, but at 6 feet-1 inches I wish he w as a bit taller. The more dominant quarterbacks seem to be more like 6-3 or 6-4, which is why Prince might more successul. At the high school level, shorter players look good, of course, because their opponents are less tall. Correct me if I am wrong here. If I am not mistaken, I think Skelton of Fordham is 6-5.

If he or Brackett were 6'3" or 6'4", they'd be at Florida or some place like that. On the other hand, let's not forget that Drew Brees is 6'1", so it's talent and football smarts that ultimately determine performance.

BB had a good recovery last night beating Dartmouth easily after losing to the "studs' (I mean "students") at that college in Boston the night before

No question in my mind that the Columbia Men's Basketball Team will defeat Harvard when the Crimson come to Our House in February. Asenso Ampim missed almost the whole game in Cambridge due to a back problem. Asenso wll shut down one of the Harvard "studs" and Daniels the other.

Congratulations to the Columbia Women's Basketball Team on their victory over Dartmouth last night!

We suffered a drought during the second half against Harvard which put the game out of touch. Smith has now seen Harvard and will out coach Amaker when we get Harvard at home.

Jake, for your information, another linebacker from Ohio, John Brady of Lakota East High School, has committed to Columbia. Brady was selected to the Greater Miami Conference First Team.

Unrelated, but does anyone know what ever happened to that SNL sketch? Did it air?

Re Brady, the conference in which he plays is super tough, but it looks like, at least with respect to LBs, that we're getting all conference types and Penn is getting all state types.

Like the way Goings uses his feet to set up in the pocket. Agree with
Dr V, height may be over-rated, in particular for a QB who is mobile,shows good footwork, and is comfortable as a runner.

Peter Sullivan one of Brown's best hoopsters was hurt Friday against Princeton and didn't play against Penn. Will he play against us this Friday?

For recruits, does anyone have any idea how much their decision is made based upon a) Columbia academics, b) the coaching staff, c) their official visit, including their host, or d) other, including NYC? Curious since we recruit generally the same players as the other Ivies.

Peter Sullivan must have sustained a serious injury. He only played 18 minutes Fri and have missed his first game perhaps ever Sat.

Brown played well without Peter Sullivan, losing at Penn in OT on Saturday by two points. Brown should have won; they led by six with two minutes to play in regulation. They will be tough at home with or without him.

While players' heights, weights matter, I don't get hung up on them. Think of Alex Gross, Lou Miller, Ray Rangel, and, way back, Travis Chmelka.
