I can't say who is on the short list for the vacant head coaching job at Columbia, but there are some things I can clear up that seem to have a number of readers confused:
1) This is by no means an "undesirable" job. The inbox is full for the three point men accepting inquiries and resumes for the position. Let's stop negotiating against ourselves, (as some astute commenters have said), and trashing the job.
2) Recruiting goes on; it really never ends. There will be some recruits who will decide not to come to Columbia because of the coaching change, but probably no more than three or four. On the flip side, whomever comes in as the new coach will most likely bring in a few new players to fill that void.
3) THREE players, one current sophomore, one current junior and one current senior, are taking an advisory role on the search committee. They will not have an official "vote" on the candidates.
FCS Playoff Update
Stony Brook squeezed out a 31-28 win over Columbia's week two opponent in yesterday's round one of the FCS playoffs.
How great would it be for Columbia to play on those playoffs one day right on Kraft Field?
Attention Ivy presidents: EVERY Ivy football fan and player wants the chance to play in the FCS playoffs. How about granting a simple wish to some kids who actually show a commitment to their schools?
