Expectations? Number of wins? Will the team be competitive? The Sporting News college football preview issue has the Red finishing last in the Ivies. This is year four of the Archer era. 5-25 to date.

Optimistic = 5-5
Realistic = 3-7

Less than 3-7 and we may see a coaching change.

Yes, no more than three voters could have had us above 8th. Or one crazy man thinking that we'd finish 5th! But that doesn't mean there aren't other members of the media who think so too but didn't get votes. Yeah, that's what I meanT!

Cynic. We have Columbia's number: the last 3, 4 of the last 5. Should have been 5 of 6 because how in 2010 could Cornell allow Columbia to score 17 unanswered fourth-quarter points and win by 3 (below). Not as sad as Syracuse lacrosse the year before.

With Bagnoli as coach and with the transfers/recruits he's bringing in, those days of an automatic win for Cornell are I'm afraid going to be over. worry

We had a total of 150 yards of total offense in our 3-0 win over Columbia last year, our lone victory of 2015. Agee with Ken - with Bagnoli & Columbia's recent institutional support for football, this too should be a difficult game for the Red.

Easy. It's considered, by some, to be cultural appropriation, or one culture taking elements of another culture, especially from an emerging culture. So if you bring back a sombrero souvenir from Senor Frog, you might be criticized for wearing it when you return from Cancun. Wearing lederhosen might be appropriating from the German culture, although unless you are tall and not husky, looking silly is punishment enough.

You may think this is all BS and you would not be alone. But it's important to at least understand there can be this kind of conflict on campus that didn't exist a generation ago.

You are right that this conflict didn't exist on campus a generation ago. But that has nothing to do with whether ir is legitimate or not.

This whole "cultural appropriation" thing is ridiculous. People that complain that a dining hall serves tacos or someone wears lederhosen or whatever should be ridiculed. The article paraphrases the MEChA rep syaing "continuous desensitization across college campus to different cultures". That's a good thing. People shouldn't be so goddamn sensitive about stupid things. This isn't a case of negative stereotyping. There are plenty of things in the world worth worrying about - we shouldn't be inventing new ones.

Just to go over the top here, complaining about cultural appropriation is un-American. Our whole culture is based on appropriating things from other cultures. The melting pot thing, you know?

They genuinely did not look bad against Bucknell. We'll see whether they get their doors blown off by the Eli today. Sagarin has Cornell at 218 and Yale at 199, with Yale a 4.5 favorite at a neutral site, meaning this game at Schoellkopf is Yale -1.8

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Cornell and Dartmouth swept the Ivy League football weekly awards after signature wins over the weekend.

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Cornell sophomore quarterback Dalton Banks (San Antonio) led the Big Red to a 27-13 win over Yale in the Ivy League opener for both teams, passing for 306 yards and two touchdowns with no turnovers. He completed 23-of-32 passes, including 15-of-16 in the first half for 235 yards and two touchdowns as the Big Red raced out to a 24-3 halftime advantage. Cornell is 2-0 to start the season for the first time since 2009.

Banks is the first Big Red to be named Offensive Player of the Week since Jeff Mathews on Nov. 25, 2013.

Banks’ Statistics for the Week
23-32-0, 71.9 Completion %, 306 Yds., 2 TDs; 13 Rushes, 20 Yds.


...

SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Cornell sophomore placekicker Zach Mays (Las Vegas) continued his hot start to the season, hitting both of his field goals and all three of his extra point attempts in the Big Red’s 27-13 win over Yale. His first field goal came as time expired in the first half and pushed Cornell’s lead to 24-3. Mays recorded four touchbacks on five kickoffs, and the Big Red special teams was up to the task on the only kickoff Yale returned, stopping the runner at the 17-yard-line.

Mays takes home Special Teams Player of the Week for the second-straight week to become the first Big Red to earn two such awards in the same year since Brad Greenway in 2011.

Mays’ Statistics for the Week
2-2 FG, 37 Lg., 3-3 XP, 9 Pts.; 5 KO, 4 TB


Honor Roll

Chris Fraser, Cornell (Sr., P – Bakersfield, Calif.)
7 Punts, 282 Yds., 40.3 Avg., 50 Lg., 4 in20, 3 FC, 2 TB

Jackson Weber, Cornell (Sr., LB – Whitefish Bay, Wis.)

In the process of getting blown out at home against Penn last night, Dartmouth's QB had an all time sequence of int, int, safety on three straight plays. NBCSN broadcast was a tough listen.

Colgate 21-0 after 1 quarter. A little better in Q2: 21-2.

Meanwhile New York's College Team, or whatever Syracuse calls itself, and Notre Dame scored 60 points in the first half. Notre Dame built a 9-6 lead without a field goal or safety (instead, a blocked PAT return). ... and a school we played regularly a generation ago, Rutgers, is getting schooled by TOSU 51-0. If that makes us feel any better.

Cornell QB Dalton Banks is co-player of the week, again, along with the Harvard QB. Banks threw for 454 and 5 TDs; Harvard's Joe Viviano threw for 210 and 3 TDs. Cornell's Kurt Frimel was the defensive player of the week. Punter Chris Fraser was special teams player of the week. [www.ivyleague.com]

Ivy League release

CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Cornell sophomore quarterback Dalton Banks led the Big Red to a come-from-behind 39-38 win at No. 25 Colgate. Banks completed 25-of-45 passes for 454 yards and five touchdowns. Banks was at his best on the game’s final drive after the Big Red got the ball back at its own 43, marching the visitors 57 yards in six plays and the game-winning TD. The 454 passing yards rank eighth in a single game in Cornell history, while his four touchdown passes were one off the top school mark.

Banks Statistics for the Week
25-of-45, 55.6 Completion %, 454 Yds., 4 TDs

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Cornell junior Kurt Frimel had two of the biggest defensive plays of the day in the Big Red’s win at No. 25 Colgate as part of a 10-tackle day. Frimel’s 4-yard sack in the second quarter got Cornell on the board with a safety. Then, trailing 38-33 with less than two minutes left, Frimel got into the backfield to stop a Colgate ball-carrier on fourth-and-4 to give Cornell a chance it would convert for the game-winning touchdown.

Frimel’s Statistics for the Week

Chris Fraser’s ability to flip the field was instrumental in Cornell’s road win at No. 25 Colgate. He punted three times and pinned the Raiders inside their own 7 yard line all three times at the 2, 7 and 4 yard lines. Fraser, a preseason first-team All-American, averaged 36.0 yards and didn’t allow a return yard while punting on short fields all day long.

Cornell QB Dalton Banks is co-player of the week, again, along with the Harvard QB. Banks threw for 454 and 5 TDs; Harvard's Joe Viviano threw for 210 and 3 TDs. Cornell's Kurt Frimel was the defensive player of the week. Punter Chris Fraser was special teams player of the week. [www.ivyleague.com]

Ivy League release

CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Cornell sophomore quarterback Dalton Banks led the Big Red to a come-from-behind 39-38 win at No. 25 Colgate. Banks completed 25-of-45 passes for 454 yards and five touchdowns. Banks was at his best on the game’s final drive after the Big Red got the ball back at its own 43, marching the visitors 57 yards in six plays and the game-winning TD. The 454 passing yards rank eighth in a single game in Cornell history, while his four touchdown passes were one off the top school mark.

Banks Statistics for the Week
25-of-45, 55.6 Completion %, 454 Yds., 4 TDs

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Cornell junior Kurt Frimel had two of the biggest defensive plays of the day in the Big Red’s win at No. 25 Colgate as part of a 10-tackle day. Frimel’s 4-yard sack in the second quarter got Cornell on the board with a safety. Then, trailing 38-33 with less than two minutes left, Frimel got into the backfield to stop a Colgate ball-carrier on fourth-and-4 to give Cornell a chance it would convert for the game-winning touchdown.

Think of it as two different games. Lost the first 31-12; won the second 27-7. The defense was good in the "second" game.

I do think we're vulnerable to a power rushing team -- Our D-line still seems on the smallish size and can be pushed around. Our linebackers and D-backs have been solid tacklers, however.

If the wind picks up off the Charles it will turn the Stadium into a wind tunnel blowing from the closed toward the open end. Harvard is accustomed to dealing with this. Visiting teams are not. A big advantage. Want to run down the clock as much as you can going into the wind and do the opposite (e.g., no-huddle offense) with the wind behind, maximizing your number of plays with the wind.

Harvard's OL and DL are going to prove too strong for Cornell. Harvard wins this be 24 points.

Dalton Banks picked off on first play of game (receiver Shaw bobbles ball), Harvard returns to Cornell 6 and scores 2 plays later. Harvard 7-0. Could be a long afternoon? Maybe not: With 4 minutes to play in the first, Banks lofts a 41-yard pass to Rogers, who settles in under the ball in the end zone. Shades of Jeff Matthews. 7-7.

Halftime, Harvard 14-7. We're not winning but we're not en route to repeating last year's 40-3 pounding.

Third quarter, a long Harvard march (helped by a 15-yard targeting penalty / ejection against Cornell) puts Harvard up 20-7 (PAT block, almost run back for 2 points). Cornell quickly gets in Harvard territory then Banks is picked off in the end zone. Harvard next possession settles for a field goal. H23-7 about 3 minutes to play third. That keeps it a two-score game, the announcers note. Quarter ends Harvard 23-7

Harvard opens breathing room with a TD midway through the fourth; failed 2-point conversion. Harvard 29-7. Banks' arm gets Cornell another TD, 4 minutes to play. PAT kick hits the upright. Harvard 29-13. Failed onside kick gives Harvard the ball on its 40 with 4:10 left. Cornell gets the ball back with about :16 left and that's the game.

3 Cornell turnovers hurt especially the pick on the first play. Cornell looked decent. Harvard looked like Harvard.

Cornell's Dalton Banks was 19x39 passing, 2 TD, 3 Int. Attendance reported as 11,509. Box score: [www.cornellbigred.com]

It could have been a lot worse: Michigan 78, Rutgers 0.

I hope the wheels aren't falling off Cornell's season with bad luck. First their kicker quits the team, then key injuries at their skill positions and now this mid-season coaching resignation. They need a win at Brown in the worst way. Unfortunately they have lost 8 straight games playing at Brown.

FoxSportsGo? Here I was looking "forward" to watching some Cornell football and it's on some obscure BS channel instead of the ILDN.

Sucks!!!

Are we paying Fox or are they paying us? If it's the former, there's no justification for it that makes any sense.

If I had access to the channel, I wouldn't be complaining.

In general, I have only fuming ire for the cable/satellite TV business model that holds us all hostage today.

In other news, I found myself a less-than-ideal pirate stream. Boy, it's Saturday afternoon and Brown can't score, no matter how often we hand the ball over to them.

Seems like Brown fixed that problem.

I noticed the Brown QB never actually puts his mouthguard in his mouth. I thought that was a requirement, but the rulebook only says the mouthguard is "required equipment." So I guess it's OK even if it's only tucked between the facemask And helmet.wtf

14-14 after Cornell recovers a fumble and runs it back to the 8 yard line. Probably should have been whistled dead at the spot of recovery but ... it was not. In the NFL that would have been a legit return. A few plays later, Banks tosses a TD pass to tie it.

Cornell promptly commits 2 personal fouls on the kickoff.

good lord the playcalling in ot was shit. too many shots at the end zone; nothing over the middle. really no attempts to let a receiver get free except by running straight ahead. the ot touchdown was pretty but it was insane that it worked - banks was just not very accurate. the last play of the game was an example - deitz had room to run but the throw was shit and he had to reach for it and fell down.

also, the tackling was awful.

Yeah, I was scratching my head at all the shots to the end zone in OT. In general it seems that incremental movement is what works in those situations, but we seemed to get impatient. The 4th down play is what we should have been doing on 1st and 2nd down.

It was inexcusable to have a delay of game penalty after a timeout for goodness sake. How can that happen??? They could have nailed the win down at that point. I don't think a 3-0 start should save his job. He can not play call period.

Losing Zach Mayes has truly hurt special teams. It is noted that long kickoff returns have occurred especially in the last two games since Mayes left school. Nick Nulle's foot not quite as strong.
Would like to see a better mix of pass and run on offense.

Not quite sure which delay of game you mean. There was one that apparently was taken deliberately: to maximize the opportunity for Brown to jump offside and, if this failed, to give the kicker more room to pin Brown deep in its own end.

Was there another?

Exactly. It didn't take long for the knives to come out after this overtime loss. Princeton (at Cornell) this Saturday will be tough. Princeton is improved after a 2-5 Ivy, 5-5 overall season last year. Last week Princeton took Harvard to OT before losing.
