Columbia beats Marist 34-24 with return of Josh Bean at QB and despite many missing starters on long injury list.

A win is a win, but Columbia has to do better than that.

Marist was utterly manhandled in the season opener by much-maligned (unfairly IMHO) Georgetown.

Exciting win as both teams excelled on offense and the Columbia defense played well again against the run. However, the Lions obviously had trouble containing Justin Christian a lightning quick wide receiver. Still, from Columbia's standpoint there were many positives including the very strong play of Josh Bean at quarterback, the excellent showing of the offensive line, the productive running of both Dante Miller and Lynard Rose, the key receptions by tight ends Casey Mariucci and Rory Schlageter, and the terrific kicking game.

A good win overall. Bean was a little rusty but showed good poise in the pocket and made some crisp passes. He showed why he is CU's number one quarterback. Let's see if he can improve as the season goes along. Marist may not be a great team, so it is perhaps hard to tell how well Columbia actually played. But it was good for Lions to get on track and especially good to see the 1-2 combo running game of Rose and Miller. Miller is developing nicely and is very hard to bring down.

I am concerned about the toll that injuries are taking. By my count we are down at least 6 starters. Getting Bean back is a huge plus, but what surprises me is that more guys haven’t stepped up. With three top 25 recruiting classes in a row I would have thought that we could make up the losses in personnel. But Al’s pattern is to work rookies into the lineup slowly as the year progresses. It is hard to understand why a lopsided time of possession advantage did not result in a blow-out, but then again how do you let an opposing WR go for 275 yards and three TDS? Right now the number one priority is the pass defense and getting in place better coverage on fast WRs.

Pass defense is definitely a cause for concern. Even after CU knew that their receiver was going to thrown to, CU could do absolutely nothing to stop him. Is this because no one in the league could stop him that day? I doubt it. He is a good player but he is not playing for Ohio State.
Otherwise, my sense is that there were a number of players who stepped up for the injured ones, and it bodes well that Bean is back. Dante Miller is a strong back and I am guessing he is better than some others who are upper classmen

We played a hard fought game, but I have a sense that we made Marist look much better than they are, like a top tier Ivy team.
