HOW TO GET TO THE GAME:
My 2011 Guide to getting to Wien Stadium
*REMEMBER* the #1 Subway train WILL NOT be running tomorrow!
You can catch audio and video of the game on the SideLion Pass on GoColumbiaLions.com with Jerry Recco and Sal Licata.
If you're in your car, WKCR student radio is at 89.9 FM, (and you can get its feed over the internet too).
The season finale is always a meaningful game, (get ready for 301 days of waiting for another Columbia game), but this one is packed with lots of questions for the fans, players, coaches and administrators.
The three biggest questions are:
Will the Lions avoid their first winless season since 1987?
Will this be Head Coach Norries Wilson's last game?
Will there be any ugliness from or directed at the once-banned, now un-banned Columbia University Marching Band?
Columbia's Three Keys to the Game
Run Brackett... A LOT
It's the last game of the season, so any additional bumps and bruises QB Sean Brackett MAY endure tomorrow should be well-healed before spring practice rolls around.
I know, I know, easy for me to say. But Brown's weakness this year has been against the run and no one on this Lions team can run like Brackett.
Columbia hardly blitzed against Cornell last week, even though all the Red did was pass. Hard to figure that one out, but there's a chance someone will learn from that mistake and let guys like Ryan Murphy and Joshua Martin
come after Brown QB Kyle Newhall-Caballero as much as possible.
Trust the Seniors
No one's going to give more of a focused effort tomorrow than the graduating seniors who know this is probably their last real football games of their still very young lives.
So when there's a third and short, or another crucial play and there's a senior ready to fill a slot... use him!
