With less than three weeks to go before training camp begins, we're starting to see some movement on the Columbia football roster.
Numbers have now been allotted to each player except for Colton Bishop for some reason. I'm sure that will be rectified soon.
Incoming transfer DL Wells Childress gets #79, which was the number his College Football Hall of Fame inductee dad wore for the Houston Oilers, (Dad wore #53 at Texas A&M).
For a look at the significance of some of Columbia's most important numbers, you can read this short post I wrote about that several months ago.
But here are some highlights:
The lucky incoming frosh getting Lions all-time leading rusher Johnathan Reese's #7 is Percee Goings.
Freshman Josh Keiles will wear legendary Lion captain, coach, and current Chairman of the Board of Trustees Bill Campbell's #67.
Martin Moves... and More
The biggest news is returning junior All Ivy defensive end Josh Martin is moving to linebacker. This shift should truly suit a player of Martin's ever-increasing skill in Columbia's new 3-4 defense.
Also moving... again... is Brian DeVeau. He started at CU as a DB, switched to WR last year, and now he's back to DB.
Kevin Lenehan moves from QB to TE.
Columbia men’s basketball will begin the 2011-2012 season at defending national champ UConn on November 11th.
That game should be very interesting to say the least.

#46: 4th and Goal Redux
Thanks to a great punt to the Columbia one and a subsequent Lion three-and-out, Dartmouth began its second possession of the second half sitting pretty at its own 49 yard line.
It only took five plays for the Big Green to get a 1st and goal at the CU seven, but then the Columbia defense stiffened… just not enough.
An eerie replaying of the near goal line stand from a week earlier at Penn played itself out over the next five plays.
On 3rd and one from the one, Nick Schwieger was stopped for no gain by defensive backs Neil Schuster and Calvin Otis to force 4th down.
Trailing 7-3, Dartmouth could have easily chosen the field goal to make the game virtually tied.
But Head Coach Buddy Teevens cast a major vote of confidence in Schwieger and gave him the ball again.
This time, he scored easily and the Green had their first lead of the game.
