Flush it out!...Move on !
Take it one game at a time and hope that gate can keep improving.
Gate improved in the penalty area, mixed in a solid passing game and found another 100 yard rusher.


Princeton will be a challenge.
Princeton will be seeking revenge for the game they blew at Kerr last year.
A win there can build the confidence.

Cornell came into the game with the philosophy that they were going to stop Colgate’s tailback no matter what the cost.

Melville absolutely torched them with his arm and his legs—had what was probably his best game as a Raider.

Interesting listening to Hunt's interview after the game that it's the QB's read whether to hand off or audible and throw the ball--even in the 4th. Hope Jake keeps calling his own number--especially when the D is playing man or keying on the TB. Make them pay for it. To be fair, it might have been different if not for the fumble, but Colgate really fueled momentum by taking its foot off the gas on O. Hoping down the road that Melville keeps it on 3rd and short, or does play action. The O looked so good for the first three quarters taking what the defense was giving. Hope they learn from it, keep attacking, and start burying teams--they can certainly do it.

Cornell's O line did a very good job in the 4th. Colgate's D line was very good for much of the game and then just got shut down--felt like the end of the Yale game. Don't know why. Put a lot of pressure on the D backs who chose a good time to make their best plays of the game.

Not sure why Cornell doesn’t get the ball to Hagy a lot more often. Guy is so quick. 121 yards rushing but he only had 11 carries. Dumb.

Not sure why the announcer had such a hard time saying, “Castillo.” By the third time he said his name he gave up and just called him, "Dan."

Colgate has won 17 of the last 19 against Cornell. Imagine how they feel losing this game. Colgate now trails in the series 48-46-3. Not too long ago it was 46-29-3. Nice job of reeling in Cornell and Holy Cross the past 15 years.

Good teams win these games and learn from them. Keep it going 'gate!
