Mike Neuberger

New Coach

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.

We will be 3-1 going into this year's Penn Game. If we win, then likely leads to 8-2 season. If we lose, leads to 4-6, again

you heard it here first!

You're aware that Penn has eight All-Ivy players returning, including four first-teamers? We have three All-Ivies returning. If our season hangs on beating Penn, good luck.

Hey, being a Columbia football fan from the early 80's when luck is all we had....mostly bad....the fact that we can say a 4 win season is a downside scenario is a relative blessing.

Last year, that loss seemed to break our backs...I am afraid this game has even deeper implications this year since it is our Homecoming.

.... I'm glad to hear that some of you are very optimistic .... but remember, we have lots to figure out .... who will be our tight end, what will the defensive line look like, can we run the ball consistently in short yardage situations, how will the defensive secondary perform, can we protect Brackett ??? .... hopefully we will know where we stand before Penn .... we sure as hell will know after Penn ....
