Troll: Columbia last won a football championship in 1961. Basketball was 1968. It seems you interchange your handle regularly -- or else the original 1961 troll inspired some other gasbag and there are two of you. But at least get the Ghost right, 1961 for your dipstick comments on football, 1968 for basketball. I suspect you do not actually follow the teams as you don't recall which Troll is which, but maybe you just like pointing out that it's been a long time.

As for Green coming back to the pack next year, young athletes typically get better with age and reps, not worse. Our receivers were middling last fall, but Canty looked fantastic, Meyer and Libman pretty good, and they all return. Again, young athletes generally get better, not worse, and we have a lot of very young receivers with game experience coming back.

Columbia was down by three at Princeton midway thru the 4th. We beat Dartmouth away. And we led Yale at halftime away. Those are home games next year. Actual fans should be optimistic CU will be in the upper half next year and potentially contending. You are free to point out we are not good enough for the Big 10, or whatever your fartpost is this week. Happy New Year to the actual Columbia and Ivy fans!

For some reason we seem to bring out the worst in a small group of people with a fixation on Columbia. I tend to ignore them.

Your post is very Columbian. Super-starved for success and with your million dollar investment in your coach, you always need to justify your optimism. Looking at halftime scores or midway in the third quarter scores tells you what? Either you don't have enough players or you're getting outcoached in the second half. Why would you bring this up? Players change, weather changes, such a silly thing to look back at pieces of games, but you're basing next year's results on this year's partial scores? Wow.

Thanks Troll for a great post. You're not a Columbia alum who is trying to keep it real but a flat out detractor who dislikes Al and our program. That's fine. We'll call you Li'l Foehi.

Jake has an interesting story about incoming QB Simpkins, who is described as a three star recruit with 11 offers.
