Storm is Almost Here
I thought I would publish one last post before I suspect the power may go out early tomorrow morning.
The hard rain, wind, lightning and thunder is already here from Hurricane Irene.

NY Times on QB's
Saturday's New York Times includes a piece on all the great returning quarterbacks in the Ivies for this fall.
Unfortunately, Columbia's Sean Brackett gets just one mention.
(And the piece also incorrectly says Princeton and Harvard shared the title in 2006, it was actually Princeton and YALE).
Once again, the obvious needs to be said: Columbia and its outstanding players -- even it's MOST outstanding players like Sean Brackett -- will not get the credit they deserve until the teams starts putting together some winning seasons and, eventually, a championship.

#20: Going Down Swinging (again)
Several Columbia games last season ended with the Lions refusing to die.
The Harvard game in week 8 was one of those games.
Trailing 23-7 with 59 seconds to play, the Lions somehow rattled off seven plays and marched off 36 tough yards before the final second finally ticked away.
Every one of the plays on the final drive was either a run or pass by QB Sean Brackett, Columbia's grittiest and most variably talented QB in at least 16 years.
The following week, Brackett and the Lions' never say die attitude would finally pay off.
