Who the Heck are we playing? Cornell

The Big Red had one heck of a letdown last year after their 2009-2010 season featured some really impressive wins in the NCAA tournament. While last season they finished with a mere ten wins it should be noted that six of those were in the last nine games. The Big red were a team that found their feet late in the year who hope that some momentum will spill over into this fall.

But the media does not see it that way, in fact they are picked sixth out of eight ivy league teams. They finish just ahead of Columbia, a team that beat them twice last season. On the Harvey Birdman Warning System Cornell qualifies as a code Blue. They might be the only blue of the season but they have earned it.


In addition to a pretty bad season last year they are dealing with worse personnel problems than Buffalo and this year we have them at Alumni.

If I am wrong about Cornell it is because senior Chris Wroblewski, an He’s an All-Ivy candidate, will step up to fill a leadership gap that never quite got worked out last season. What Cornell did have last season, decent inside play, is up in the air as the team lost some major role players to graduation.
