Columbia 10
Hoyas 0
at half

Columbia offense not looking good, against a weak squad.
Several key injuries must be hurting their consistency.

How pathetic Georgetown is because Dartmouth smacked them?

You have sensitive skin.

Columbia played without starting QB and WR, in front of homecoming for GT, CU still lead 23-0 into 4Q, then seems to have relaxed. I still say GT is a poor team.

Let's look at final season record before making any proclamations, OK?

Columbia beats Georgetown in DC 23 to 15.

This game started out like it was going to be a blow out. Columbia seemed to act at some point like the win was in the bag and started to play with a noticeable lack of intensity. The passing game was very inconsistent with Davis, who threw three picks and seemed to telegraph his throws. The run defense was very good, the pass defense less so. Granted we have played two games on the road but we are going to have to do better by a long shot next Friday.

Gusty win for Columbia. Some sloppy playing, to be sure, but a win is a win, no matter what. Good teams win when the clock stops. Columbia was in disarray towards the end, but they held it together and got the big sack when they needed it. Dante Miller is showing he has some real potential to be a strong back. Davis has a good arm, but needs more consistency with three interceptions (though one was tipped in the air). Ronald Smith came up big when they needed him. And kicking game is still perfect. Bottom line CU was up 23-0 in the fourth, so did not give their opponent enough room to pull it out. Georgetown may not be a strong team, but they have a good QB and they were pumped for homecoming. Give CU Credit for their sixth win in the road ON THE ROAD, and overcoming being rattled from early season injuries. On to the next game!

Not sure if you saw the end of the game but the Hoyas could have tied it up. Columbia is going to have a tough time next weekend. Rose looks like a good runner. We are going to have a tough season. Dillon Davis looked good. When you throw the ball a lot you are going to have interceptions. Something needs to get moving with this team.

This was like a carbon copy of last year’s road win against Dartmouth. We clearly dominated for three quarters but a few bonehead plays and loss of intensity let both teams back in the game. In both cases it took a last minute sack to ice the game.

Yes precisely, that is what I meant by: a win is a win. As you said, it is worth noting that in our strong season last year, we had sloppy wins like Dartmouth. No telling what next week will bring, but I am happy with this victory and it is a cause to celebrate being 2-0. As Parcellls likes to say "you are as good as your record says you are."

Old Lion (Al not happy)

Al rightfully was pretty unhappy about the lack of focus and intensity after we went up 23-0 and there were only 8 minutes to play. I think our guys had one foot on the bus door at that point. Al was also unhappy about settling for FGs in the first half when we could have turned it into a blow out early. But I also give a lot of credit to Georgetown. Coming off a bad game at Dartmouth they could have quit by the fourth quarter and did not do so. Negatives for me were two or three more starters going down, hopefully only for one week, mediocre pass blocking, loose pass defense, some passes that never should have been thrown, a rare mistake by Will Allen in choosing to run back a late kickoff instead of taking a knee, failure of the DBs to play the ball despite tight coverage. Positives were Alleyne’s kicking, Ronald Smith, the sacks by the DEs, and the tandem rushing effort by Rose and Miller. I also liked the incorporation of the TEs in the pass game.

I agree that there were sone passes that should not have been thrown by Davis, and that, overall, he could have had a better game. But when his passes worked they were very precise and were just where they needed to be for the receiver to make the play. So not bad for a first start for a sophomore. Does anyone know when Bean comes back from concussion?

With regards to Bean, I would say that it all depends on the physician making that decision. It clearly isn't the doctor that traveled with the team to Central Connecticut. Bean was knocked unconscious in that game yet was still allowed to return to play. Then, we find out on Sunday that he is in the concussion protocol. Whoever cleared him to go back in that night should be ashamed of themselves and most likely elongated the amount of time that he will miss.

In sum: Only in 2018 could the Lions have fought through the loss of its starting quarterback and all-league wide receiver to win their first two games on the road — to teams that would have (CCSU) and did (Georgetown) beat them in 2016 — and we’re bemoaning the ugliness of the wins. Certainly the team left points on the field on Saturday, and lost focus at the end. And there remain real questions at quarterback and elsewhere. But most of the mistakes through the first two games are correctable, right now they have talent and depth that’s unprecedented in my lifetime, and there’s no one I’d rather have directing it than Bagnoli. I don’t know that they’re beating Princeton on Friday, but I expect them to be competitive the rest of the way, which we really couldn’t say for a couple of decades until mid-2016 or so. I like where we are.

In terms of comparing QB's Bean and David I seem to get the sense from the posts that Dillon Davis has the stronger arm, but looking at Bean's throws in the CCSU it seems like he has just as strong an arm...or am I missing something?

I was at the CCSC game and thought that Bean threw the ball pretty well. I do not think that arm strength is the issue. Both are good players and the first year is a good wildcat goal line option, Speaking of CCSC I saw that they beat Fordham rather comfortably, so we should not underestimate that opening road win. And if we hadn’t lost focus with 8 minutes to go against Georgetown I do not think we would be moaning and groaning quite so much about what turned out to be an ugly win. We have a very stout run defense but need to tighten up our pass coverage for Friday. PS, our DEs have been racking up the sacks, especially DiLorenzi, who must have 3 or 4 already; he looks lighter and quicker to me this year.

Glad you saw Bean up close. Sounds like he is pretty equal to Davis, which means it is good to have two good QB's on team. I agree that there is nothing to gripe about at this point---yet. I never understood the term "ugly win". A win is a win, and they come in all shapes and sizes and infinite variations. It doesn't really matter how you get there--as long as you avoid injuries!

However you look at it, Columbia has won 11 out of its last 13 games ,going back to last season. Heck of a lot better than the many years before.
