Three false starts in first ten plays. Another ball thrown up for grabs by Banks yields a pick. Where's Harley Kirsch?

Add two pass interference penalties. And a holding on a Harvard punt. Six 1Q penalties.

First 2Q penalty: personal foul after the play is dead.

Personal foul after play late first half negates 13-yard gain and first down at Harvard 30. Shoot self in foot?

Two more false starts late 3Q. Somehow 14-14 despite all this late 3Q. Found a running game.

Now 11th penalty: holding. Too many men on top of that. We can't count.

I'm sure Archer is a very nice man, but I'd never seen him in an interview before. He IS Generic Coach Man. His super power is jock platitudes.

That last PF was painful. Great momentum coming off the score and stop and then to get the first down and... oofa.

According to the TV broadcasters, the Harvard QB "plays the game with his arm and legs." That may catch on.
I read that as a clearly phrased way of saying "dumb jock"?

6 minutes to go, up 17-14. I think H will still manage to win.

"Jeff, your job is safe. For the week. Signed, the fans"

Jeez, it was Cornell doing all the right things like sacking the QB, getting a 6, 8-yard run for a first down when wearing down the clock, and making a last-play interception. Savor this game. Maybe it's the start of something.

The defense was great and the OL just hammered away and moved the ball downfield like it was the 1940's. I started watching at 14-7 and while there was a short stretch where I ... uh ... fell asleep ... the Red didn't try a single pass that wasn't a WR screen. Archer effectively gave up on having Banks throw downfield because the run game was moving the chains. It worked and it was great.

Credit to the defense for giving up less than 300 yards for the second week in a row. The pressure they were getting all through the 4th quarter was great. A lot of sacks, hits and hurries. On the desperation drive for Harvard, Cornell got a sack and forced a bad pass that became a tip drill, sideline-tiptoe INT to seal the win.

Great win. Don't know that it portends anything - especially if we're graduating a lot of players - but a lot of guys showed up to play today.

As for "plays with his hands and feet" why pretend that you don't know what that means. Peyton Manning played with his hands; Tim Tebow played with his feet.

Money shot:


The Crimson (2-2, 1-1 Ivy League) arrived having not allowed 100 yards rushing in a game to the Big Red (1-3, 1-1) since 2005. Then, Cornell ran for 233 yards. The Crimson arrived winners of 11 straight against the Big Red, who were winless, with twice as many turnovers (12) as total touchdowns (six). Cornell turned the ball over only once and quarterback Jake Jatis scored on a pair of 2-yard rushing touchdowns.

How long has it been since this has been in the extended box score:

Streak - W2

Let's hope Cornell can do it again today. And after today, we'll have reprieve for 51 weeks from hearing about "the battle of the 'Nells." Which sounds like a naming feud among two gold-rush bordellos.

[post game] If Providence allows Cornell only two more wins after Harvard, why spend them on non-Ivy foes?

No Gellately OR Coles. COME ON.

At least Bucknell is missing their best DL.

The guy doing the play-by-play seems unaware that the yards gained, yard line and down-and-distance are the most important parts of his job. He'll say things like "long gain" and then not get any more specific and it's driving me nuts.

Down 10-3 at the half, second half kickoff upcoming.

EDIT: Cornell goes 65 yards after the kickoff to tie the game on a 9 yard fade from Jatis to Lizana.

Cornell declines a holding penalty on 3d & 17 and lets Bucknell take a 38 yard FG, which they hit. 13-10 Bucknell.

Cornell can't get a 1st down then Bucknell blocks the punt and takes over at the Cornell 24. Cornell D holds but gives up the FG. 16-10 Bucknell.

Cornell can't move the ball, punts. Gives up long passes on 3 straight 3d & long, the last one a 22 yard TD. 23-10 Bucknell.

I don't know what it's going to take to give Harley Kirsch a chance. Banks is taking this team nowhere.

Guess the Harvard game was an aberration.
We are now 10-35 under Coach Archer, & 2-10 in our last 12. For those who think Cornell can't win, Columbia is 5-0 this year.

Let's see. One of the recommendations by Columbia's outside review of their football program was improved facilities. Al Bagnoli said their new indoor practice facility has made a big difference in their teams off season program as well as in their recruiting. No surprise Columbia is 5-0. Wake up Cornell trustees and President Pollack!

Admittedly with no context of the game situation, that seems incredibly stupid given the general troubles college team have once you get outside of 40 yards or so. Were they scared they'd give up a first on 3rd and 27? If so, that's a whole 'nother issue.

Why would you expect anything else? This staff has been ineffective for 4 years now. Seems to be a good 'ol boys network. Are there outside influences? They can't even figure out how to put the best eleven on the field. New gimmicks every week. Football isn't rocket science. Play your best eleven and execute. Put a game plan in place that utilizes the strengths of your team and adjust as necessary. In game adjustments are non-existent. The administration doesn't seem to care. I, for one, will not be sending any donations to the university or the football program until something changes.
