Around FCS: Columbia showing resurgence even in loss to Lafayette

Easton, PA (Sports Network) - Coming into the 2009 season, very few FCS critics gave Columbia much of a chance to compete for the Ivy League championship after finishing 1-9 in 2007 and 2-8 in 2008.

Now, after a 2-2 start in 2009, featuring big road wins against Fordham and Princeton, and a near-win against a tough Lafayette squad, the Lions are looking like a dark horse in a competitive conference that could see any one of six or seven teams win the title.

"I truly believe we have the ingredients to be good," said Wilson. "We just have to put them together the right way."

The Lions have gained more confidence each week, starting with play on offense from versatile senior quarterback M.A. Olawale, who compiled 225 yards of total offense and accounted for two touchdowns in a 24-21 loss to the Leopards.

Olawale was confident about his team's ability before the game.

"We all had high hopes and dreams coming in here and talked a lot about what we wanted to do," Olawale said. "This is our opportunity to do that."

The Lions led 21-10 at halftime on the strength of a 27-yard scamper by Olawale, the senior quarterback's 21-yard scoring pass to Austin Knowlin and a one-yard TD smash by Ray Rangel, but Lafayette's physical defense closed down the Columbia attack in the second half.

A touchdown pass in the third period from a yard out by quarterback Rob Curley (23-of-39 passes for 287 yards) to Mitchell Bennett and Maurice White's two- yard scoring plunge in the fourth quarter lifted Lafayette past pesky Columbia.

Despite its struggles after the break, Columbia's offense has shown dramatic improvement this season and is sparked by the league's leading rusher in Ray Rangel and All-American wide receiver Austin Knowlin.

Rangel ran for 71 yards on 10 carries and a touchdown against Lafayette, and Knowlin caught five balls for 55 yards and a score, and became Columbia's all- time leading receiver, with 180 catches in his career.

Although humbled by his achievement, Knowlin knows the task at hand for the Lions.

"It's a great honor, but at this point in our careers, we just want to win."

Much of this fire has been instilled by coach Norries Wilson. Wilson, just 8-22 in first three seasons with the Lions, has kept his players focused on the task at hand and looks to pick up the club's first winning season since 1996.

"Its our intent to go out and win every game, " Wilson said before the season. We don't want to settle for playing close or for playing competitive."

One of the biggest factors that most overlook when talking about the Lions improvement is the consistency of the offensive line. The unit, made up of three seniors (left guard John Seiler, center Evan Sanford and right tackle Will Lipovsky), one junior (right guard Ian Quirk) and sophomore Jeff Adams, has paved the way for the nation's 18th ranked rushing offense.

The Lions ranked 96th in FCS on offense last season.

The defense, a specialty of Wilson's, has given up chunks of yardage and is rated 114th overall, but has allowed only 18.5 points per game and is in the top-20 nationally.

One of Columbia's captains, Lou Miller, is a force at nose tackle and was named on some preseason All-American teams, while defensive end Matt Bashaw, linebacker Alex Gross are among the other leaders on this bend-but-don't-break defense. Columbia forced three interceptions on Saturday evening.

With each game, the Lions look like a dangerous team going forward and hope to grab their first Ivy League title since 1961, when John F. Kennedy was President of the United States.

Now, 39 years later, a Columbia alum, Barack Obama, has taken Kennedy's place, hopefully symbolizing the Lions rise to the top.
