Defense played OK, offense wasn't very good.

Colgate is 0-6 after a loss today against Lehigh (Update: now 0-7). Another fun fact David Archer as both an assistant and as a head coach at Cornell has never coached a team that finished greater than .500 winning percentage.

Georgetown 14, Cornell 8: It should have been better, it could have been worse. Saturday:

* Cornell was the only Ivy not to get double-digit points
* Fordham and Howard were easily disposed of by Yale (48-24) and Harvard (62-17).
* 0-4 Rhode Island managed to beat Brown 31-28 although Brown QB EJ Perry put up 420 yards and 3 TDs. That's a lot of offense no matter who your opponent is. Are we sure Brown can be handled Oct. 26? At least we have the home field. We can get a comparison Saturday vs. Harvard. Crimson already handled Brown by 35.

Well, the weather (and attendance, 8745 announced) was fabulous Saturday. On weather, we're 3-0. Even if Fireworks Friday and Hangover Sunday were chilly then drizzly. Homecoming of the last decade has been pretty good ever since Cornell decided to put seed / investment (in alumni relations) money into an early-fall event that draws a LOT of alumni and unlike reunions is the best way to see friends from adjacent classes.

If Jay Gruden is anything like brother Jon in sports-related things, I'd pay for him to keep coaching just so he's not on TV. PS: Deadspin reports the Redskins had Gruden come to the stadium today for a 5 a.m. meeting. That is cold.

i don't think it's all the playcalling. i think the offense is simply not good. catanese was being chased around and when he had time to throw the ball nobody had any idea where it was going. coles never had a chance with the lack of respect the defense was giving the qb.

Running the "full-house" backfield as often as Cornell did telegraphed "run" against a top-notch defense and too often Georgetown just packed it in and stuffed the ballcarrier.

Teams are going to stack the box and make Cornell beat them with the passing game, With a suspect Ol, that's going to be quite a challenge.

Another of the touted "schematics" was to get the ball to Harold Coles in the open field. The only attempts I've seen to date are screen passes where there are more defenders than blockers set up in the screen.

No he's not going to have an on-field position. He just replaces the position formerly held by Alex Peffley who was the Assistant to the Head Coach, but then was bumped up to the Director of Football Operations (DPO) position when the previous DPO Ryan McNamee left for the same position at UNLV as their DPO.

If Kenney’s the best we have with 4 other QB’s on the roster, that’s an indictment of the recruiting.

Recruiting and coaching. Cornell hasn't had a QB coach with college playing experience in any of the 7 years under Archer! Whatever QBs are recruited never have a chance to develop.

Now it is 4-0 with 25 minutes left. Harvard has perhaps the softest defense I’ve ever seen at the D-1 level.

Despite the game Cornell falls short again. Cornell for years has what I would call "spotty" talent. Certainly some excellent players but not enough good talent across the board and it limits Cornell's efforts
to win. Today in a number of cases we saw poor execution especially on the part of the offense. Good players make good plays and Cornell does not have enough.

Halfway through the season, we're 1-4 and no other game is a likely win. Brown and Penn are possibilities for W's, Columbia less so after clobbering Penn 44-6. 2-8 seems a likely finish. It's beyond the point where sniping here about the coach is going to have an impact. The worse we do in 2019, the better odds of change. Jeff Archer is a dead man walking the sideline. Let's hope Cornell can find somebody decent to step in.

We have had football coaches before who looked good on paper but turned out not be be successful: George Seifert comes to mind. (Yes, that was written in Irony font.) Maxie Baughan brought Cornell to the edge of excellence until he was undone by a loose zipper. But even those good years were three decades ago.

Meanwhile, Princeton and Dartmouth are in the top 20 in D1 FCS standings.

I don't think Cornell players are giving any less effort the the players at Dartmouth or Princeton. It's the system.

It's up to the athletic administration to fully get behind the program as they do for other sports like wrestling and hockey if you expect real change, Where are the facilities upgrades like the indoor practice facility? Cornell football needs a look at the program from the outside as Columbia did when they brought in a football consultant outside of their athletic department. End result, they have better coaching and facilities, including an indoor practice facility. Cornell can improve their football program, the question is will they.

Both teams 0-2 Ivy, 1-4 overall. Brown just gave up 65 to Princeton but put up 22 against a top-20

This is Cornell's best chance for a second W in 2019.

Next week’s game vs Princeton at Schoellkopf will be nationally televised (ESPNU). Definitely won’t be pretty. Tigers beat the Red 66-0 last year. Any guess what attendance will be? (kickoff Friday at 6:00).

So Princeton and Dartmouth are undefeated and the class of the Ivy League and BOTH have indoor practices have competed or under construction to aid in recruitment and player development, It's not rocket science that unless Cornell natch up with their facility improvement in this aeaa, that Cornell remain in the bottom of the Ivy League recruitment and success;

Great, aggressive opening drive and TD by Howard nullified by hands to the face but Null nails a 39-yarder. Cornell 3 Brown 0

Brown scores a touchdown, and it’s going to be a long day if we can’t get any pressure on Perry. What a difference to have a real QB.

Brown's QB Perry doesn't belong at this level. Easy drive down field ending in a 29 yard TD pass. Cornell stops the run PAT. Brown 6 Cornell 3, late 1st

To be fair this guy is the coach's nephew and transferred from BC. He's an FBS QB playing in a terrible FCS league, where he is 7th in the country in total offense.

We aren't stopping him; we need to score 40.

Two drives in the red zone, 2 FGs because of penalties and a poor pass by Kenny on what should’ve been a TD. 6-6 late in the 1st. Given that Brown will almost certainly put up 30+ points, we can’t settle for FGs.

The Cornell secondary is doing a decent job, but they’re defenseless with no pass rush. It’s an embarrassment.

Looks like it will have to be a game of great individual plays. The Taylor INT helped. Maybe we can guess right and turn one of Perry's flat passes into a Pick 6.

They survived this one but it's certainly an issue. Penalty yardage currently 55-5 and that's not including the 30 yards and TD Howard lost on the first drive.

After the D gets a 4th down stop, a nice Cornell drive ends in a TD pass to the TE for a 13-6 lead. Credit to Kenny for some nice passes on the drive—I’ve been tough on him but he looked good there.

Worse for me was a missed sack. Our guy had a clean shot at Perry around the Cornell 30-yard line, but he was able to elude the defender and completed about a 10-yard pass.

Yeah, I get that. But as far as coaching goes, he’s so far ahead of the curve it’s embarrassing for the rest of them.

Predictable. Brown seemed to change things up on defense and of course we’re powerless to respond in kind.

We hold Brown 3 and out, force the punt, drop the return and give Brown the ball on our 15.

Well. That was suboptimal.
