M.A. to the AFL!

Great news for Millie Olawale ’10, who has found a way to continue his football career.

Today, the Arena Football League’s Philadelphia Soul announced they signed Olawale.

The Soul’s season begins a month from tonight with the opener against the Pittsburgh Power.

I will do my best to follow Millie’s new career and would appreciate reports from anyone who gets to see him play live or even on TV this season.

Terrific for a really good man; I hope he signed because he wanted to, not due to being turned down by grad/professional schools.

Great news about Olawale. A terrific guy and he deserves all the success he gets. Bad news about CU basketball. An ugly loss to Princeton tonight. Only 4 fields in 2nd half!. Egads. Looks like we're heading for another .500 season (if we're lucky).Not sure why CU can't turn things around at f-ball and b-ball; it is perennially in the middle of the pack. Other Ivies go through off years (look at Princeton a few years ago when they were losing badly; and Dartmouth was terrible two years ago) but then these teams bounce back, come around and shift upwards to the top. CU hasn't been able to shed mediocrity in these major sports since the 1960's--50 years ago? It seems like CU is in a parallel universe that runs continually in place, while the rest of the Ivies move up and down, spreading the wealth.

Total disaster last night at Levien. We have a long way to go. Too bad, because we had a very good crowd.

How about this article from 1999:
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Columbia basketball's next coach?You heard it here first. He's interested; he apparently dictated a letter out that was sent to
"Columbia University Athletic Director John Reeves expressing his interest (references and everything, which is pretty funny -- I was editing the paper tonite so I got to actually see the letter), and people reportedly saw him on campus today (I didn't). Now THAT would be something if it happens -- the team could go 2-24 again next season and that gym would still fill up in no time.... (Of course, provided he's not an AWFUL coach, it means Columbia's recruiting numbers will skyrocket, so how bad could it be?)"
