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"?

"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?

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.

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.

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.

Quick review of the play-by-play: Brown has as many drives with negative yardage (2) as they do first downs.

Cornell back inside the 10 after a 60-yard Gellatly run. EDIT: Gellatly finishes off the drive with a 3-yard TD run. 34-0.

Just shows what can be done when the WHOLE administration and the trustees are onboard. Columbia did it the right way with an outside consultant looking at their football program from coaching to facilities. End result, they make a great hire, and have a new indoor practice facility.

The offense isn't terrible but Princeton is killing us on both lines. Kanoff is also a very good and confident QB, @illing to throw into small windows and the Tiger receivers expect the ball. We are losing to a good team.

Defense holds, Cornell blows down the field and Walker scores from the 1. Alas, Walker then drops a 2-pt conversion. 21-16.

Defense holds again... but now a non-contact injury to Walker, probably his Achilles. Can't tell if they called it a fumble, but by college rules, I think his knee touched down before he dropped the ball (in agony). Literal insult added to injury if they call that a turnover. EDIT: They called him down by contact and then on the next play Jatis went deep and threw a jump-ball interception which worked OK as a punt I guess.

Princeton's offense is relentless. A QB in thy Ivies who can throw timing passes and crossing patterns is unfair, especially when he's got the best receiver in the conference to throw to. 28-16.

Cornell takes the kickoff back to the 45 and then rips off a 15 yard catch-and-run. 3d & 8, though, after a WR screen on 2nd down forces the receiver to drop to a knee to catch the ball ... which is not a good idea in college football.

Princeton's offense is relentless. A QB in thy Ivies who can throw timing passes and crossing patterns is unfair, especially when he's got the best receiver in the conference to throw to. 28-16.

That last P TD was gorgeous, like something out of the SEC.

Didn't realize PU was the #1 rushing D. This has been impressive. Jatis is a great weapon. If Banks got his accuracy back we'd have a helluva offense.

We'll see ... but it looked bad. Maybe it was a cramp and he'll be OK but I'm concerned. He hasn't returned.

Gellaty and Coles have been amazing though. A drive inside that 10 that ended in a short FG followed by a great interception on an underthrown ball at the 50 and then a series of great runs ending in a Jatis TD. 28-26 with plenty of time left if the defense can hold again.

Oh man - Null blasts a 43 yarder that would have been good from 50 and Cornell is up 29-28 with 48 seconds left.

Null puts it through the end zone and Princeton takes over at the 20 with no time outs.

Just shanked. Given the kickoffs - low, and short of the end zone - I think 45 is the edge of his range, so he had to put extra mustard on it and mishit the ball badly.

I still can't get over Nick Null blasting one through like Justin Tucker, Dead center from 43 and it hit the net waaaaaaaay over the crossbar. And his kickoffs kept going out of the back of the end zone. He may have a future in kicking.

Good question. It's not as if his performance is a surprise: in high school he was ranked 13th best kicker in the country.

If Archer can for sure do one thing, it's recruit kickers - Mays was ranked 11th the year before. For the second year in a row, Mays has gotten injured and opened a spot for Null as starting kicker. I don't know how long Mays is out for or if it will even matter after that game from Null. Mays has missed an XP and a 21 yard FG and his kickoffs have also been worse. Null is 10 for 10 getting touchbacks while Mays was 13 for 21 and even shanked two out of bounds.

Congratulations to Coach Archer and the entire Cornell team. Anyone with any interest in Cornell sports would have enjoyed the post game show on NBC Sports--what excitement and joy these kids demonstrated, especially when not much was expected of them this season.

I couldn't help but be reminded, during the interview with the coach, of the old "Chris Farley Show" on Saturday Night Live. "Remember...remember when we beat Princeton? That was awesome."

OK, well, I'll take being down just one score at the half.

Meanwhile:

Yale 34 Brown 7 (last night, final)
Harvard 14 Columbia 7 (halftime)
Penn 24 Princeton 7 (3rd)

If all scores hold:

4-1 Yale
3-2 Cornell
3-2 Columbia
3-2 Dartmouth
3-2 Harvard

If we can flip ours:

4-1 Cornell
4-1 Yale
3-2 Columbia

We’re certainly more competitive, and the improvement on defense has been encouraging. The past few years our defense was blown off the ball, and that’s not happening anymore.

I think this Ivy league season would be well served with the following results:

Next Week: D>B, Pn>H, Pr>Y, Cr>Cl

Final WeeK:H>Y, Cl>B Pn>Cr, Pr>D

Final Standings a 7-way tie for Ivy title at 4-3, Brown 0-8.

I guess I could live with it if Cr>Pn
