Brinson News is Official
Wagner College has officially announced that Columbia’s tight ends coach Tony Brinson is the Seahawks new defensive coordinator.
I haven’t seen any news about who will replace Brinson here.
Wagner is continuing its new series with Cornell this fall after shocking the Big Red by a 41-7 score last season.

#86: Martin’s Big Sack
Columbia went into the locker room at halftime in week two clinging to a modest 7-3 lead and kicked off to Towson to start the third quarter.
The Tigers had pulled starting QB Chris Hart late in the second quarter and red shirt grad student Bart Blanchard was under center and starting to gel.
After Blanchard completed a 14 yard pass for a first down and a short run, Towson faced a second down and seven from their own 41.
But the Tigers drive came crashing down on that play as sophomore DE Joshua Martin bulled into the backfield and sacked Blanchard for an 11 yard loss.
From that point on in the game, it was like Martin was living in the Towson backfield.
He would finish the game with three sacks, four QB hurries, and six tackles overall.
But the stats just don’t tell the whole story of just how dominant Martin was in that game.
It seemed like the refs could, or should, have called holding on Towson on every offensive play based on how the Tigers handled Martin’s speed rushes from the outside.
For a Lions team struggling to replace Lou Miller, who graduated the previous spring, it was an encouraging sign that all began with that 11 yard sack in the third quarter.
