Columbia has also been dominant in mens’ tennis. I think our resurgence is attributable to Bollinger getting religion and hiring a great AD, along with significant investment in facilities and budget.

. . . and also Columbia Men's Squash with its Ivy Championship and 7-0 2018 Ivy season.

Very well put! I'd only add that Columbia's recent 8-2 football season featured a significant good character senior class of players brought to Morningside Heights by the man Dianne Murphy hired to coach football for CU (Peter Mangurian).

A little revisionist history in the previous post... if coaching hires (like Al Bagnoli) are among an AD's most important priorities then the Columbia record looks more like this:

Al Paul hired Bid Goswami and Jim Bolster

John Reeves hired Derek Davis and Diana Caskey

Dianne Murphy hired Brett Boretti, Kevin Anderson, Jacques Swanepoel, Daniel Ireland, Nich Parker and Michael Aufrichtig

Peter Pilling hired Al Bagnoli, Jim Engles and Megan Griffith

While Pilling deserves credit for the masterstroke of getting Bagnoli - lots of the groundwork for Columbia's success in recent years is attributable to Murphy, and the Campbell Center that she raised the funds to build. Baseball and Tennis were ascendent long before Pilling arrived - and fencing was revived by Murphy's replacement of the previous coach.

It is very easy to point to Columbia's long-time failure in football as a reason to say that the previous AD was the cause of a lack of overall sports success for Columbia - but the facts suggest otherwise.

A total disaster. She deserves no credit. Anything good that happened during her watch was by accident. She undercut Norris’s Wilson. She ran Joe Jones out of town. She hired Pete Mangurian, the worst HC in the history of all NCAA sports. The funds for the new facilities were raised by Bill Campbell and others. Pilling is a fantastic AD.
