Top 100 Moments of 2010:

#34: Witt Goes Wild

Columbia's nightmarish beginning to the Yale game in week 7 at the Bowl wasn't even over at the end of the first quarter and the Lions already trailing 10-0... in fact, it wasn't even half over.

On their first possession of the second quarter, the Elis took over after a Greg Guttas punt to their 31.

Yale QB Patrick Witt was as erratic as ever on and off the field in 2010, but on this drive he looked positively like Peyton Manning. Naturally, the Lions bore the brunt of his sudden streak of brilliance.

The 10 play march featured 4-4 passing by Witt for 74 yards and TD. He spread the ball around to four different receivers and never came close to making a mistake.

It was now 17-0, Bulldogs and the bad dream was still alive.

Is Coach Gregory Sigler still at Columbia?

Yale is the game that would keep me at night if I were the DC. It seemed like Witt read every defense and found the right player on every pass play. This is the one player I would have liked to see in cap and gown this past Spring.

I have heard that Greg has moved on and is no longer involved in collegiate football. Good luck to Greg whatever he does. Really nice guy.

The first half was the single worst half of Columbia football since Norries became our coach. The second half was more representative. So what happened that day? Why were we so flat?

It is all well and good that Coach Wilson is a nice person, but unless the team has a winning season he needs to be replaced. Standards are high for academics the same high standards need to be applied to athletics, cannot keep accepting poor results.

I agree with last poster.I think the simple reason has to be that Dartmouth has been picked by some to win the division and they had a 17 game losing streak only two years ago. They have turned things completely around. CU continues to run in place and hasn't cracked the top half of the division in the last 20 years. This is year is a final test for Norries

last poster...not accurate....two seasons ago we won three games and finished 4th in 1994 or 96 (cannot remember) we went 8-2 with Wiley

Difference with Dartmouth is that they have outstanding athletic facilities right on campus in a pastoral NH setting. Easier to attract student athletes there. Also, Dartmouth have a much more impressive football track record that Columbia in past 25 years.

I think the point here about Dartmouth is that it shouldn't have to take decades to turn things around. Sometimes a year or two is more than suffiicient.
