More Yale Scandal

Chris Smith

The drama in the ethics-tainted Yale football program has another headline:

Top Eli wide receiver Chris Smith is out for the season with "personal issues."

Speculate if you will, but whatever the full reason, this latest development justifies everything I wrote about Yale earlier this week when I picked the Bulldogs to finish 7th.

Meanwhile, the same article about Smith indicates that the QB race at Yale is still wide open. One candidate is former Columbia recruit Logan Scott, the player Coach Tony Reno's staff poached from the Lions early this year.

I wonder what it would be like to get to rush Scott for an entire game at Wien Stadium this October 20th.

Game Notes?

The Fordham Rams kick off their season TOMORROW night against D-II Lock Haven, but there are still no game notes published.

I think that tells you have seriously even their sports department is taking this game. It's pretty obvious it's just a glorified preseason scrimmage.

That's not to say the Ram info people have been lazy. Check out all the excellent previews available about every main unit on the team. It should make Columbia fans jealous to see a department that actually wants to inform its fans about what the team is going to look like.

The only out of conference Columbia opponent to post game notes so far is Lehigh. You can read them here.

The Mountain Hawks are going for their third straight Patriot League title and are heavily favored to grab it. Check out the Lehigh two-deep to see an impressive, if not impossible to defeat opponent and its starters.

I still think the Lions road game at Lehigh on October 6th will be the toughest game for Columbia to win this season.
