Cornell 2018 football schedule
Sep 15 TBA    @ Delaware 
Sep 22        Yale (Homecoming) 
Sep 29        Sacred Heart 
Oct 07        Harvard
Oct 13        @ Colgate
Oct 20        @ Brown
Oct 27        @ Princeton 
Nov 02 6:00   Penn (ESPN) (Friday night)
Nov 10        Dartmouth
Nov 17        @ Columbia
In order to provide a more interesting and competitive end to the Ivy League football season, Penn-Princeton and Cornell-Columbia are now the season-ending games. Translation: The odds of Penn-Princeton having an effect on the championship race is more dramatic than Princeton-Columbia (virtually guaranteed Princeton win) and to a lesser extent Cornell-Penn. It makes sense for the good of the league.

Looks as if one Ivy (or Ivy vs. non) game a week will be Friday at 7 or 6 pm, on one of the ESPN networks.

One nice thing for NY-NJ-Philadelphia alumni: The at-Princeton and at-Penn games are in alternating years. In 2018 we'll be at Princeton for the second straight year and host Penn for the second straight year.

Nov 17        @ Columbia 
Nov 24        @ MSG vs. Harvard (hockey)
In even years past (2016-2014, there has been a fantastic Cornell-in-NYC weekend when we played Columbia around Nov. 10, with tailgates, class receptions the night before, the Big Red Band march down Fifth AVenue after the game, and dining/drinking after that, plus some pre-reunion rah-rah cocktail parties for (this year) the classes of 4s and 9s. Five years ago it was a wonderland warm, mid-60s Friday night and our class had a rooftop reception.

Probably ain't gonna happen this year. You have to decide where to expend your energies. Now, all these events if they happen are going to compete with Red Hot Hockey at MSG seven days later, this time the non-league game vs. Harvard. It was already bad enough when the two were within 2 or 3 weeks. If the football weekend events happen, they're going to damp attendance at hockey, or vice versa, among alumni who are more socializers than sports fanatics.

For anyone that has Sirius XM radio, tonight's (7/16) edition of LATE HITS on the NFL Channel 88 (7 pm - 11 pm) is focusing on NFL players (past and present) from the IVY League.

JC Tretter was on a 9 pm and Gil Brandt has a few stories about Ed Marinaro. The show replays around 3 am, and is available "on demand" for those of you with the App.

I just happened to see a kid tweet that he's received an offer from Cornell football. In his twitter handle he includes that he has 4.0 GPA and a 21 on the ACT. That's the 56th percentile. No offense intended, but it seems hard to believe anyone with a 21 ACT would be admitted to Cornell these days.

Sure they haven't re-scored it again?

Edit: nah, 21 is shitty.

I mean, it is football, though... whistle

Certainly the merits of standardized tests are debatable. But the fact is that Cornell factors test scores into is admissions decisions, and Cornell's average ACT for accepted students is a 32.

Maybe the kid got a 32 and slid one digit left on the phone keyboard. It's Twitter, it's not like anybody cares about correctness over there.

This reminds me of my fifth year which was in Ann Arbor. At one point in the year a member of the admissions committee asked my C.U. buddies and me what was going on with a woman applicant who had a higher than 4.0 in Chem. E. We had to fess up to the 4.3 system in place at our alma mater - which of course made us look 0.3 less in his eyes.

Hey, if it wasn't for the little 0.3 I'd have never gotten a 4.0 my last semester (I got an A+ in one course in my major which offset an A- in one of my electives).

Every semester I received (won't say earned!) an A+, I also had an A- in a class with one more credit hour, so no 4.0s for me. :(

The season opens tomorrow. There hasn't been a football post here since Aug. 21. In comparison, there's been a bunch on lacrosse and even a half-dozen on polo (horse, not water). Good luck, Cornell. I might even go down to Delaware to watch, assuming seats are still available. 3:30 p.m. at Tubby Raymond Field. I don't think an Ivy school would allow such name. Have to be T. Raymond III Field at Delaware Mud Hens / Monsanto Round-Up Stadium. LGR!

I don't believe the hurricane is targeting Delaware (high 70s Saturday, partly cloudy).

Mid Atlantic weather has returned to our Total Shit Status Quo for September (sticky, fetid, gross). Playing football in this must be the equivalent of having to wear wet socks on a 5-mile hike.

Cornell got creamed by Delaware last opener. It should follow the same script. Get ready for plenty of mistakes, penalties and turnovers as Cornell plays their 1st game and Delaware their 3rd.

I remember when we played Rutgers more or less evenly. But that was when older alums recalled Cornell played Michigan evenly. The oldest lamented how wimpy football had become with the departure of leather helmets.

Maybe we're losing our best athletes to Ultimate.

Lots of pluses from the first game: Cornell is early on the scoreboard, finishes strong. Then there's the other 50 minutes. And the defense did keep Cornell in the game for three quarters.

There's also this news from the Cornell sports PR story:
CornellBigRed.com
Notes To Know
• Five Cornellians made their first career starts: LB Lance Blass, WR Garrett Cloer, TE John Fitzgerald, CB Phazione McClurge and WR Lars Pedersen.
• Seeing their first varsity action were: LB Lance Blass, OL Nick Busher, WR Devan Cross, RB Jake Derderian, DL Maxton Edgerly, LS Thomas Ferrara, RB Thomas Glover, RB Delonte Harrell, CB Michael Irons, QB Richie Kenney, S Logan Thut, DL Nathaniel Weber.
• Cornell fell to 0-2 all-time against Delaware with no future meetings on the schedule.
• The Big Red is 92-34-4 all-time on opening day, though just 6-5 in its last 11.
Are they any flagship campus football programs where we could be competitive? (What is the NYS flagship campus BTW?)

Can't win without a quarterback who can throw downfield.

Can't win without a quarterback who can throw downfield.

On the quarterback issue, he (one of them, anyway) did throw downfield a couple times and in most cases he actually overthrew his receivers. Tho in one case, the receiver turned around too soon, slowed down, and the ball went just beyond his fingertips.

Our first drive was all tricks and screens. When Delaware caught on to that, it stalled the drive and then the rest of the offense until the last 5 minutes when the Hens had the back-ups in. But we had a lot of passes that were not on target or were dropped. Offensively, what I saw was a team that had two games under their belts (including an embarrassing first game loss that they wanted to "avenge" ) versus a team playing their first game who really seemed to not have their timing down.

IMO, the real weakness was our defense. We couldn't stop the long sideline pass. That was the killer. Delaware would just set up #7 wide left, throw the long bomb down the sideline, and we couldn't do anything to stop it. Automatic 40 yard gain. The defensive coaches never moved a safety over to give any support to the cornerback to prevent it. And by the end of the game, our defense was so gassed that they started giving up the edges on the run. Delaware could chew up yardage and run the clock and we couldn't stop them.

I take one consolation: last year we had five turnovers in the first half. This year, none in the whole game.

But for me, I'm glad the series is over. I wonder who we replace them with.

I don't think this is wrong exactly, but it would work better if it's a game thread rather than a branch of a season thread.

I also think Rich already knew the final score because of the Rest of the Internet.

2 things:

My apologies, Bill. I didn't see the score in the subject line because I don't normally ever read the subject line of every post in a thread. (Flat view forever!) Heck, I don't even read the author's name of each post because I can usually tell who wrote it based on how bad the jokes are.

Ugarte: I stand by my decision that Cornell football isn't worth opening any other site or app to deep-dive to where they buried the Ivy League scoreboard. It takes what, 30 seconds? Nah, I'm good.

Well, now I know all sorts of facts about this game except one: the final score.

The game score was we fucking lost.

This is going to be the game score a lot, so you may want to commit it to memory.

I just want to know how badly we lost is all.

Think of it this way.

We were embarrassed by a team that was embarrassed last year by Villanova which was embarrassed this year by Pitt which was embarrassed last year by Georgia Tech which was embarrassed last year by Duke. And Duke sucks.

The FCS is bad. The Ivies are bad for the FCS. We are bad for the Ivies.

Did anyone watch the game on ESPN+? Or has anyone watched any Ivy game on ESPN+ for that matter. Wondering if there was an improvement, regression, or “about the same” versus ILDN broadcasting a similar game last season.

My apologies, Bill. I didn't see the score in the subject line because I don't normally ever read the subject line of every post in a thread. (Flat view forever!) Heck, I don't even read the author's name of each post because I can usually tell who wrote it based on how bad the jokes are.
None needed. Just bank it for when I say something dumb. I could also have just appended "Delaware" so people knew this was the first game of the year and not about Cornell's prospects or reminiscing how good it was when Kevin Boothe anchored the offensive line.

The FCS is bad. The Ivies are bad for the FCS. We are bad for the Ivies.
Others say we're not so bad.

[www.sbnation.com]
Bill Connelly, SBNation
The Massey Composite compiles computer ratings for both the FBS and FCS levels. In 2015, the Ivy League, powered by No. 5 Harvard and No. 6 Dartmouth, graded out as the second-best FCS conference, behind only North Dakota State’s Missouri Valley. In 2017, it ranked fourth.

The league has fielded at least one top-15 team in six of the last eight years, and the depth appears to be increasing quickly, too.

That trend should only continue. Per HERO Sports, Princeton signed 2018’s No. 1 FCS recruiting class, and three other Ivy schools (No. 2 Yale, No. 6 Harvard, No. 14 Columbia*) ranked in the top 15. Harvard and Yale ranked in the top eight in each of the last two years, too.

Maybe you’ve noticed. Maybe you flipped over to NBC Sports on a Friday night to watch part of an Ivy League game or turned on the annual Harvard-Yale battle and caught yourself getting sucked in. Maybe you saw two Ivy Leaguers get selected in April’s NFL draft. Or maybe you noticed Princeton beating out Alabama for a four-star quarterback. But perhaps you didn’t notice. You could be forgiven.

I have always assumed if the Ivies ever dropped their monocle and joined the FCS playoffs our one auto bid would lose in the first round by 73 to Inbred Red State Pentecostal A&I (the Fightin' Glossolalists).

At first I was thinking of Red State as Native American. Now I got it. And in its entirety the name was pretty funny.

I was browsing small colleges recently and saw one that calls itself "selective" but the online guides note it has a 94 percent acceptance rate. The other six probably can afford but can't figure how to pull the ring on a Pabst Blue Ribbon.

My observation

Cornell's defensive scheme with a lot of blitzing leaves the corners and safeties on 1 on 1 coverages and vulnerable on the pass plays. Credit to Yale's o-line for picking up the blitzes.

The roughing call is the only thing I didn't like in this game. We were supposed to get rolled and didn't. We've played two games that were supposed to be blowouts and have looked credible, even in losses. It's an improvement. I have low expectations for football so this is good to me. A win here would have been amazing, and it hurts that we came close and failed, but I'm still happy with the season so far.

Also, I think Dalton Banks is not a very good passer.

I watched the game on ESPN+ and it seemed that there were many commercial breaks. According to box scores, the SHU game ran for 3:10 and last week's Yale game ran 3:15. In contrast, the first two games on IDN last year, Colgate and Bucknell, ran for 2:41 and 2:36, respectively. Presumably, the many and lengthy commercials accounted for the extra 34 minutes per game. I hope that this trend doesn't continue into hockey season as annoying commercial timeouts affect the flow of the game and provide a break for less well conditioned teams, not to mention that fans will get home later.

This would suck for us old timers and hockey purists of any age. The only silver lining is that it would give the coaching staff more experience in dealing with the finesse needed in line matching, etc. when dealing with a game with more timeouts. It could make the staff more ready for playoff hockey.

This is sort of my view. The flow of a TV game can seem much different than that of a non-tv game. NCAA games are all TV games. May as well adapt to that flow even if it means longer games in December too.

Harvard's best WR got hurt early in the game and it's really hurt their offense. Of the few plays I saw, we couldn't cover him and their QB could totally trust him to be open on timing throws.

Cornell has a terminally stupid coaching staff. Harvard has given up just 50 yards per game rushing, but Cornell starts every down series with a rush, usually two. When they didn't, the surprise pass (and badly underthrown at that) gained 45 yards and led to the only offensive touchdown.

Didn't learn from last week. Varied offense on first drive was successful until two dumb play calls ended it. Since then it's run, run, run until you have to pass and then punt.

Colgate TD scored on a clever pass play and FG set up by a clever delayed screen. Waiting to see a clever Cornell play. 10-0 late first.

I don't think we watch the same games, Al. A better team ended the first drive by making plays. The calls weren't dumb, they just didn't work.

Bad snap leaves the Cornell punter scrambling inside Cornell's 20 and he gets nailed by the coverage team. Fortunately for Cornell, the helmets brushed against each other (and it looked much worse because his head snapped back on the hit) and Colgate gets hit with a *terrible* targeting call with 16 seconds left in the half. Instead of Colgate with the ball in the red zone, Cornell is able to move into Nick Null's field goal range for a last-second field goal try. Alas, Nick Null is out for the year. Zach Mays isn't close on a 43-yarder but the Red is only down 10-0 at the half to a top-20 FCS team.

I don't think we watch the same games, Al. A better team ended the first drive by making plays. The calls weren't dumb, they just didn't work.
No, we watch the same games. We just have a different idea of smart play-calling.

Some consolation: Back in Ithaca, Cornell sprint football put up 26 in the second quarter to lead Chestnut Hill College 35-23. I had to learn more about Chestnut Hill, which is not close to BC, but in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia. About 1400 students. And this on admissions: A 500 on each SAT is about average and it's "moderately difficult" to get in.

Dalton Banks gets subbed out after the Cornell D gets a stop on downs near midfield with ~4 minutes left. His replacement promptly throws a pick-6 and Cornell is down 31-0.

We're disagreeing over whether it was the call or the execution.

Mercifully, the game is over.

It's on to Providence. Brown has only a win over Georgetown so far, was blanked by Rhode Island 48-0 in the Newport Mansions Cup (I'm sure it has a name), and is being pounded by Princeton 35-3 today.
