New Look

New Site

I posted earlier today a breaking news item on the new-look Columbia athletics website.

It does look nicer and flashier, as all websites should.

And by clicking on the schedule page for the football team, we learn that just about every Columbia football game will be available on TV or video-streamed live on the internet.

FYI: the Penn and Yale games, which are both being broadcast on national cable networks, will not be streamed live to protect their exclusivity rights.

It also looks like some of the road games will be video-streamed, but we’ll get more details on that later.

Hurricane Issues

It looks like the New York area will indeed get slammed by Hurricane Irene Sunday night.

Whether that means some practices get canceled, I don’t know.

I also don’t know if the NCAA and the Ivy League will allow for the missed practices to be made up… essentially extending training camp in some way.

The sad thing, (of course other than the potential loss of life and property all along the East Coast), is that these days before freshman orientation begins are the most crucial practice sessions of camp.

Once the orientation schedule kicks in, it’s hard to maintain the same continuity.

Top 100 Moments of 2010

#23: Worn Down

Already trailing 16-0, the Lion defense finally showed signs of a breaking point.

On 1st and 10 on the CU 11, the Crimson’s Treavor Scales easily ran into the end zone for the final Harvard score of the game.

For a defense that had fought brilliantly all afternoon to keep Columbia in the game, it was an unfortunate moment to say the least.

No one looking at the stats in the game, including the 246 yards passing by Harvard QB Collier Winters and the Crimson’s 166 net yards rushing, can guess just how well the Lion defense did that day.

But the only stat that counts is the final score.

Interesting to note that there is not a single NY high school grad in the incoming football class of 2015. When is the last time that happened?

New York HS ball is not very good.

And academics are an issue, with the public schools at least.
