Roar, I think you missed Holtsie's irony. And Holtsie, you might appreciate that my spell-checker wants to call you Hottie. Not having met you, I'm agnostic on that one.
As for our Lions, Roar, let's not forget Columbia took advantage of some unusual down seasons and just squeaked out a few of its wins. That's not to denigrate in any way this season - it was magnificent -but to say that it will be tough for CU to maintain its level. And that's not to say that the program will slide back to the sorry state it was in.
The skill positions have improved, but don't forget that offenses live and die by their lines. CU loses the vital left side of the line. Even great QBs and RBs lose if they don't get protection and running holes.

Agree with Ivy V. Columbia went 4-1 in games decided in the last minute. That probably doesn't happen twice. And we lose a very good QB w no proven backup. If the two 5th year eligible OLs return, we have four returning starters on the OL and very deep WRs. I think CU will be very good next year, but the record will depend in large part on QB play.

Dear Ivy Voyeur, in fact we lose only Wales on the O-line and when injured he was well replaced by Joe Scowden who started against Cornell. So counting Scowden we return all the starters including our top two tight ends. Can't do much better than that.
Interior D-line could be more of a challenge after losing three seniors.
