I agree with Roar's assessment of the incoming class. Despite the "rankings," there is no question in my opinion that Columbia's incoming class is very talented particularly at the skills positions. Obviously, the recruiting emphasis this year was on bringing in lots of speedy playmakers on both sides of the ball and the Columbia coaching staff appears to have accomplished that very well. The icing on the cake is that Columbia also successfully recruited a half dozen possible impact linemen and a terrific punter.

Put yearly rankings aside.

The real story is the seismic shift from decades of veritable disdain for Columbia football to the dramatic shift of the Columbia administration's full support of same within the academic confines of the Ivy League.

What is of real import (and should scare the rest of the Ivy football teams) is that the Columbia football program, under the aegis of Al Bagnoli and his staff, has improved already and exponentially, say, by a factor of at least 10.

And there is no reason that this improvement shouldn't continue at the same rate during the rest of Bagnoli's tenure, and beyond.

Bagnoli has only begun.

Anything's possible. Steve Gladstone has taken Yale crew from less than mediocrity to a national championship.
