The best coach in the Ivies, his excellent staff and a new generation of players suggest that history is bunk.

It will interesting to see which QB takes the helm this year. The 8-2 team from last year is largely intact with the best receiving corps in the Ivies (plus some excellent newbies), most of the OL and a substantial portion of the defense returning.

You can bet that the team will be working hard in the bubble this winter and that the QB situation will be set by spring ball.

The issue is still at QB.
Hill had unique talents which cannot come off the shelf. I saw no one this past year with anything close to his arm or accuracy.
Any incoming frosh would have to be exceedingly talented, and would still need extensive seasoning in the college game, to equal Hill's capability. Our current corps of QBs certainly is not in his league.
So maybe short passes and a much improved running game will be the route we go.

Don't get me wrong; I would love 10-0. I just like to have reasonable and logical expectations, and 6-4 is my median between disappointment and pleasant surprise.

Columbia fans in December 1961 and December 1996 were saying the same thing.

But as some have suggested--history is worthless. The 2018 Lions are just as likely to go 10-0 and win every game by double digits than they are to go (thereabouts) 5-5.

Then I'd revise to say

"The 2018 Lions are just as likely to go 10-0, winning every game by double digits or begin Streak III than they are to go (thereabouts) 5-5."

The :) at the end would remain.

Dawg, I think you are underestimating the QB talent we have on board. True, none of them got a chance to display their passing ability last season, but both Bean and Davis were All-State (Davis 1st-team in Texas, no small accomplishment) and Bean had nearly a 70% completion rate his senior year (and his only pass attempt this past season was a TD). Suitt may also step up plus two or more good ones coming in (word of a super transfer has not materialized yet to my knowledge). Plenty to look forward to, especially if the RBs and DLs come to the fore. GO LIONS!

Agree. The two rising sophomores are really good. Both have cannons but real game situations are another thing. We’ll see. And the “super transfer” is still far from settled.
