Football Scoop is reporting that Maryland’s Mike Neuberger is joining the Columbia staff as tight ends coach.
Now the big question is: Will he have anyone to coach?
Since tight end is just not a starting position that typically goes to an incoming freshman, one has to assume that Neuberger may be working more to develop tight ends this year as opposed to working with them on varsity game plans.
But, as always, we are hoping to be pleasantly surprised.
Top 100 Moments of 2010
#51: Eddy’s Big Kick
Trailing 27-10 to Penn late in the 3rd quarter, the Lions’ chances of coming back against the Penn defense seemed slim.
And when Nick Gerst was swamped for a five yard loss on 3rd and 1 at the Quaker 26, another promising drive came to an end.
But the Lions were able to get something out of it when freshman Luke Eddy boomed what was easily the most impressive FG kick for Columbia all season long.
Luke’s 48-yard kick, (and by the way, considering how high his kicks go, has anyone thought to nickname him “Skywalker?” Just wondering…), sailed through the uprights and was a thing of beauty.
It would end up as the second longest FG kick in the Ivies in 2010, second only to the a 49-yarder by Cornell’s Brad Greenway.
