Interesting not one word pre-season about the two highly-touted freshmen, QB Harley Kirsch and RB Harold Coles.

It's good to know that we will be opening "a promising 2016 campaign" and "There is every reason to believe 2016 will continue the Big Red on an upward trajectory". but hey we "led the Ancient Eight in net punting". Is there any more certain indicator of future success?

All joking aside, hopefully the team plays well tomorrow and starts climbing out of the hole the program has dug for itself.

Can someone explain to me how our last two games being win/loss constitute an upward trajectory?

Al,

According to this thread:

Kirsch missed the whole preseason with some kind of injury and is just now cleared to practice.

I'll stick by my guess that this staff needs at least 3-4 wins to be retained. And that sets a pretty low bar to meet.

Relative to Election '16, these are virtual statements of fact.

OMG! After Nov. 8, at least half* the PR people working on the presidential campaigns will be out of work and may look for jobs in college athletic offices. The dark side is that the lies will become even more outrageous (e.g., "Cornell sets out to win another Ivy League championship";). The bright side is that an influx of such professional hucksters would lead to real change, such as not reprinting twice the part about "Storied Rivalries."

*"At least" because the minor parties, Libertarian & Green, must have some PR types too. Given the example of Libertarian candidate Johnson's clueless answer about Aleppo, they sure could use some.

Or just letting go of the overused "battle of the 'Nells."

Then Bucknell marches right down the field for an easy touchdown -- the Cornell D-line was completely overmatched by the Bucknell O-line on the drive

10-10 tie at the half despite nine Cornell penalties. Walker running very effectively. Bucknell receives to start second half.

We're winning 17-16. Banks and Walker have both looked great, and we're not getting illegal formation penalties every third play any more.

Now we need to figure out how to tackle #23.

Announcers rival Brown's for awfulness.

24-16. Nice play by Sullivan to bail Banks out.

Penalties 11 and 12 give Bucknell a first down.

Still can't tackle #23.

So true Al. I didn't see interference on Bucknell's last pass play with the angles provided, and I also thought the ball was tipped by the rushing lineman.

Like this QB, and he's not even our pried recruit.

Also like that we went back to the white unis. Looks much better than the gray.

That about covers it.

And now we're on an upward trajectory.

Excellent. We are one of four five Ivy teams still unbeaten after one game.
Brown
Cornell
Harvard
Princeton
Dartmouth (scored final 2 minutes to win by 1)]

Good thing we picked the right Pennsylvania team, Bucknell not Lehigh (49-28 over Penn) or Lafayette (loser to Princeton in close 35-31 game)
