I like how Columbia is showing some life after a dismal showing in several games this season. That could be because Cornell is vulnerable at this point in the season but some good steps towards better days nonetheless. Possibly even a win vs Brown next week.

A win??? Brown will kill us.
This was another game that we handed up on a platter. First play from scrimmage we toss a pass to a defender 5 yards from the closest CU receiver. Not tipped, just a totally stupid toss. 2 picks and a fumble all leading directly to TDs. That's your game.
Brown beat Dartmouth away by the same margin we beat them at home. Our guys still haven't learned how to win. We are 2-8 this year.

It's coming in bits and pieces. The Lions need a legitimate QB and the OL is underperforming. They need a steady run game but the do have more ability than they did earlier in the season.

I am not impressed with Brown at all. They are traditionally inconsistent so they can drop any game, anywhere to anybody.

My take, after being at the game...CU needs a stud receiver. A 6'5 guy they can go to when needed. 13 is good, but short. 24 can be good, but needs to learn to catch with his hands. Too many catches bouncing off his pads.

QB play, as discussed at length here is inconsistent. Another area that needs to improve.

On the defensive side, LB play was good...but all seniors. Concerned about next year and who is available to backfill. Secondary was suspect, and got beat on a lot of long balls. That, and too many third downs given up on come backs.

Bottom line: AB needs better skill players, and should get them in the game early in their career to build for the future.
