Columbia University Lions (football)
What brief did your group give the coach when appointing him? My heart sank when I saw reports of a £100,000 bonus for Warren Gatland if the Lions won the series. No, was my first instinct. Award him a generous bonus if they play the sort of football people will speak of in awed tones 40 years from now.
It’s a small town. Obviously, we haven’t produced many players out of this town. We have Bill Nagy , who plays for the Lions. He’s also an offensive lineman. It’s a slow-run town, it’s a great town. [It’s] big on football. Not many players come out, but it’s awesome to have and I’m sure everyone there is really excited.
As of now, I (expect) the Lions to finish with an 8-8 record this season ... They can easily be 10-6 or 11-5. When you have weapons like Megatron, Bush, Broyles, and Stafford you can win any game. Mayhew has very quietly put together a solid defense this off season. The D-line looks scary and could be the best in all of football.More quotes »
