The Team That Beat LSU Beats Columbia

Yale:Colu-SatowStadium

One of my highlights of the 2013 season was going to the Big Apple and seeing Columbia beat Dartmouth for the Ivy League title in the first weekend of May. The smallish Satow Stadium was stacked to the gills and the track railing and parking lot fenceline were both filled with fans. It was an electric atmosphere, even for the freakin’ Ivy League.

 

Today, not as many fans. And not as an electric atmosphere, I admit. But this is still considered “opening weekend” for Ivy League play and Yale proved to be an impressive victor. And why not, aren’t these Bulldogs the same ones who went down to take on the mighty LSU Tigers and beat them in their own jungle?
