My unofficial advertising line for the Columbia Lions 2011 season is:
“Columbia Football 2011
No Lockouts. No PSL’s. No Thugs.”
Now put that slogan on a few billboards around the NYC area and THAT will create a real buzz and maybe a few hundred more fans in the stands this fall.
I wonder what Don Draper would say about that?
Do me a favor and pass along the new slogan and see what kind of reaction you get from your friends and co-workers. Then report back in the comments section.

#95: Perfetti’s Blocked PAT
Dean Perfetti was a godsend in 2009 when he brought some stability to a catastrophic placekicking situation. His most crucial kick came against Cornell, and he made a big FG in that thrilling 30-20 win in Ithaca.
But a young kicking prodigy joined the Lions last year in the form of Luke Eddy.
While Perfetti’s blocked PAT after the Columbia TD against Fordham hurt at the time, it opened the door for Eddy to get an earlier chance to play. And Eddy was up with the varsity by the following week against Towson, going three-for-three on his PAT’s and making his only FG attempt as well.
Eddy finished the season a sparkling 27 of 28 in PAT’s and a very solid six for nine in his FG attempts, (including five of six from less than 40 yards).
Perfetti remains with the Lions, providing Columbia with very rare experienced depth at the position.
Meanwhile, Eddy is well positioned to break some Lion kicking records if he can stay healthy and poised.
