Basketball Triumphs!

More good news from California where the Lion Basketball team finished out a perfect trip to La La Land today with a 78-56 win over La Sierra College.

One adept reader has already pointed out that the next Lion men's basketball game is at home against Holy Cross. Will there be room on the Crusaders' team bus for head football coach Tom Gilmore in case he's like to come interview at CU?

You know... I'm trying to encourage carpooling to be "green."

Carl Pelini

Pelini Gets an Offer

Former Columbia footballer Carl Pelini, who some thought might make a good candidate for our vacancy, is reportedly about to get the head coaching job at Florida Atlantic University.

By the way, Pelini has never been a head coach above the high school level. But he does have eons of experience as an assistant, especially under his brother Bo who is the head man at Nebraska.

FCS Playoffs Thoughts

Towson, the team Columbia whipped by two TD's on Kraft Field just last season, won the Colonial Athletic championship and just barely lost to Lehigh in the second round of the FCS playoffs yesterday.

Anyone who says you can't turn around teams quickly should take a good long look at Towson.

Oh, and Chuck Priore's Stony Brook team just barely lost to the top ranked Sam Houstaon State in the same FCS playoffs.

Remember, Priore was the man who was the Columbia search committee's top choice the last time we had this vacancy.

Towson gets about a half dozen D 1-A transfers a year that make instant impacts on their team. If we got 5 or 6 1-A players a year to transfer we'd be a pretty good ball team too

No reason we can't get more transfers. Nothing stopping it. We need a coach who is young, smart, and hungry to win. Enough PC, feel-good, stories. Time to put the emphasis on winning. Period.

"Anyone who says you can't turn around teams quickly should take a good long look at" . . . Jim Harbaugh. In three quick stops, Harbaugh has produced stunning winners at the University of San Diego, Stanford and now the San Francisco 49ers.

Harbaugh over the last 10 years is one of the greatest coaching achievements in the history of football. It's one thing to create something out of nothing one time; he's done it three times in a decade.

Toal has zero college experience, not even as an assistant, and you think he can succeed at a school who has not had a winning head coach in over 60 years?

I am not a Toal guy. I want a younger coach also I do believe he should have some college experience.

I do not think we should be eliminating HS coaches because they are high school coaches.
