This entire week of Roar Lions Roar is brought to you by IvySport.
You can check out IvySport's Columbia products here.
A couple of quick news items before I ask you all to weigh in on some questions:
-Former Columbia assistant coach Chip Kelley makes $2.3 million per year now as the head coach at Oregon. If he were still living in Manhattan that would cover rent for a small apartment for six months… maybe.
-Columbia’s class of 2015 for the wrestling team has been announced. There are some athletes there with impressive football pedigrees, especially Wyatt Baker from Orange County.
Baker played defensive tackle for Servite High School, the same school where Columbia got Ray Rangel '10.
If Coach Wilson et al have imposed some kind of rule against two sport players, (if so, Lou Miller '10 would be an exception), but if so that rule should be broken to see if young Mr. Baker is interested. We're talking about a 6-3 265 pound DT!!! He's just what the doctor is ordering for the Lions priority one: STOP THE RUN.
Okay, let’s hear what you think about these burning questions:
Columbia returns a very strong offensive line, an All Ivy versatile QB, and at least two very promising speedy running backs.
What’s the best way to utilize these assets? Choices below:
1: Run the option offense on every darn play… out of the wishbone if necessary!
2: West Coast Offense, baby! Let Brackett throw short passes to the backs and the WR’s almost all the time. Use the short passes to set up the run and then the bomb.
3: Despite the lack of a proven FB, run the I-formation all the time and mix in lots of play action.
4: Your idea here
Three Ivy schools have yet to announce their incoming football classes of 2015. They are Columbia, Cornell and Yale. Who will be the first team to report next? Who will be the last?
Okay, lemme hear from ya!
