A simple question for a summer Friday:

Which now-graduated Columbia Lion will be the toughest to replace in 2011?

Andrew Kennedy, Alex Gross, Adam Mehrer, or Calvin Otis.

I wish that list were shorter, but such is the circle of life.

Let me know…

Top 100 Moments of 2010

#71: Brackett’s 5th

It’s not every day that a team record is tied… not on a team that’s been playing football since 1870.

But early in the 4th quarter against Princeton in week three, QB Sean Brackett did something that had been done only twice before in the previous 130 years.

On 1st and 10 from the Tiger 40, Brackett found Andrew Kennedy open down the middle of the field for his fifth TD pass of the game.

The fifth score tied Brackett for most TD passes in a game in team history with Paul Governali and John Witkowski.

Governali did it in a 39-0 win over Fort Monmouth in 1942.

Witkowski did it in a 56-41 loss to Dartmouth in 1982.

Overall, Brackett went 18-for-24 for 273 yards, the 5 TD’s and no interceptions.

For the Columbia fans who had been telling everyone all off season long that Brackett was the real deal, the achievement was solid proof that they were right.

I think Kennedy because of the physical attributes: size, speed and hands. Not easy to find a TE with all three.

Gross. Bracket will have receiving options this year but who is going to make tackles? Unless the D line is a whole lot better, we're going to give up yards and points.
