In reply to: Tod Howard Hawks 's message, "Columbia: The Athletic "Sleeping Giant" That Is Starting to Wake Up" on 20:21:08 06/30/17 Fri

More recent than 1971 were several good mid-1990s teams, including 1996's 8-2 team featuring future NFL All-Pro, Marcellus Wiley. So, 20 years, not 46.

That said, the comment above about the challenge of fostering college sports in NYC is correct. But, I've always believed that people with the right attitudes, skills, and promotional approach could get it done and knock it out of the park there.

My sincere apologies for forgetting about the terrific 1996 8-2 team. 1994 was another winning year. Guess I got momentarily carried away by the negative hyperbole, sorry, but glad to provide some fodder for foehi, the eternal Lion antagoniste who instructs us (if unknowingly) in tolerance and compassion.

Actually I forgot two of them, the two from the nineties,which is inexcusable, you're right about that, Fooey.

I have amnesia after "Sid Luckman".....Okay, Archie Roberts. I would say Marty Domres but we were already a nation of lawyers by then and he should have sued on grounds of non-support.

I wait to see if the next Great Awakening will be Bagnoli making his bones at Columbia or inferring them there.

Oops, I meant "interring" not "inferring" of course.
If only mine were not interred first.

of course we must remember, "the evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones".

Fooey, I hope we won't have to wait 'til then.
