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.
