Other Changes

There are some more position changes to report from spring practice, er… just from looking at the roster on GoColumbiaLions.com:

Devan Luster moves from DB to LB

Marquel Carter back to DB from QB, (not a surprise as Carter was originally listed as a DB last year).

Malcolm Carson to DB from RB

Joe Raimondi from DT to OT

The biggest news is Raimondi. Here’s a very talented player who cracked the two-deep and got on the field as a DT as a frosh. Now he’s moving over in hopes of doing the same for what looks like a contended for the best quality veteran O-line in the league.

Joe is a fierce competitor and I would not be surprised to see him succeed in spades. Many people thought he was a better offensive player to begin with.

The idea of him joining the already stacked O-line makes me a little more optimistic about our offense in 2011.

Devan Luster’s move makes sense in that it does seem like we’re moving from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense and that increases our needs for more bodies in the linebacking crew.

Perhaps the best news coming out of the outstanding live blogs for spring practice is that Owen Fraser seems fresh and is moving well again. He looked pretty good last spring too, but reinjured himself in training camp and never got back to 100% during the season.

Harvard Gets It… Sort of
It’s not quite our idea of honoring all our student veterans at a football halftime, but Harvard is honoring all its graduates who went on to win the Medal of Honor.

But the kind of event we want to see honors all the veterans, especially the young and smart men and women who are currently studying at CU.

Some BB news--looks like Harvard's Tommy Amaker is going to be the likely new coach for the University of Miami

No it doesn't. They talked to him, that's all.

Amaker isn't there yet, but, all reports indicate they really want him. I'm not sure why. He spent 8 years at UM with little results. He has brought Harvard back, but, it is Harvard.

According to Bruce Wood over at Big Green Alert, another recruit coming in is Michael Weisman from North Andover, Mass. He played TE and LB in high school and also is a very good LHP in baseball. Not sure if he's planning on playing both or what.

Jake, do you know anything about this?
