Some readers have already seen this great article about incoming frosh Tom Callahan.
Callahan is a big 6-6, 280-pounnd offensive lineman from the same high school as two-time 1st Team All-Ivy senior Jeff Adams.
I like where this is going.
Older readers of this blog probably only regret that Callahan's first name isn't "Harry," but we can't have everything.

#78: Popeck's Big Play
Few Columbia fans may remember that the 42-14 throttling of Princeton at Wien Stadium last season was a little slow in developing.
Aided by a nice pair of 3rd down throws by Tiger QB Tommy Wornham, Princeton's opening drive moved 46 yards to the Lion 30 before Ben Popeck changed all that.
On 2nd and 10, Popeck forced RB Jeb Heavenrich to cough up the ball at the Columbia 26 and Popeck fell on it himself to seal the turnover.
All four Lion victories in 2010 were come-from-behind affairs, but the victory over Princeton was a much smaller comeback in no small part because of Popeck's strip and recovery early in the first quarter.
