Shutting it Down
Hurricane Irene has indeed disrupted football training camp, canceling tomorrow's practice and planned first scrimmage of camp.
I assume the storm will shut down most of the other Ivy camps today or tomorrow as well.
I don't expect to see massive damage in the New York area, but power outages are a different story.
A prolonged outage for several days or so would make things a bit difficult for the players and everyone else.
Throw in the fact that moving in day for incoming freshmen was supposed to be tomorrow and you have a lot of uncertainty on campus.
The good news is Columbia campus is on a nice high perch and I would staying in the dorms there is probably one of the best moves a person can choose right now.
Also, while this is nothing to ignore if you live in a low-lying area along the coast, I think a lot of the precautions the city and state are taking are mostly political butt-covering.
But in this case, that's very acceptable.
Fordham Media Guide Available
For those of you who want to do more intense scouting of week one opponent Fordham, the Ram media guide is now available online.
You can also see the Rams in action in just five days when they take on the UConn Huskies in East Hartford on ESPN 3. ESPN is an online streaming network, but if you have a laptop and an HDMI cable, you can hook the computer up to your TV and watch in style.
That's my plan, anyway.
You can do the same thing with SideLion Pass streams of Lion games.

#21: Luke's Rare Miss
Luke Eddy came into the week 8 game at Harvard still riding a perfect PAT streak, and he hadn't missed a FG either.
The freshman's luck ran out with a missed 49-yard FG in the first half, but at that distance it was not a shock.
However, it was surprising in the fourth quarter when Eddy misfired on a 35-yarder that could have made it 23-10 in favor of the Crimson.
That miss would be the shortest distance failure of the season for Eddy, who still looks like he could have a record-breaking career as the Lion PK.
