I disagree, Grin. I saw a lot of positives for Brown this year, particularly given the playmakers and speed in the freshman class. Unlike past years, Brown played the freshmen and didn't suffer from a lack of team speed.
Today, Columbia's defense was terrific. In contrast, Browns offense struggled, particularly after Linta was hurt. Brown almost pulled to within 4 points in the 4th quarter, but for the imperfect pass that was just missed by Doles in the end zone.
Duncan has great feet, but it is unclear whether he is tall enough or has a strong enough arm to be a top Ivy qb. Certainly, he would require a different type of offense than Linta.
I'm hopeful for the future, particularly based on the freshman class, which filled the needs (particularly speed) that concerned Brown fans for a while. If Linta can turn into a quality qb, we should have a competitive team next year and an very good team in two years (I think Linta has 2 years of eligibility left).
