Brown Game Notes


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 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!

Walking through my place of work today on two seperate occasions I've overheard jokes about the CUMB and Columbia Football.

Thanks bandies for all you've done for the program.

Sadly I can't make it to the game. Cheer for me and wish the seniors well. They are still my boys. Go get 'em. 12:30 Beat Brown!

Hallelujah! I hoped they'd win in regulation with the short FG attempt. When it was blocked, I thought "only with Columbia." But in hindsight, winning in OT was even more inspirational. I'll take the win any way it came, and it was great. Funny that 1-9 is terrible but it does seem a lot better than 0-10.
I give the credit to the players' determination and talent. Think what they could do with expert
coaching and play-calling.
