We break down the Cornell game after the flip.
The Cornell Big Red are led by the youngest head football coach in all of Division I, David Archer.
His resume sounds like a college football player’s dream; starter on the offensive line at Cornell, invited to remain on the coaching staff after a year as an assistant at Franklin and Marshall, and then, after five years and a surprise departure from then-head coach Kent Austin, being promoted from within to become the head coach at your Alma Mater.
What may not be a dream is Cornell’s record ever since he took over. While not entirely his fault, Archer has gone only 3-11 as head Big Red. Still, it’s more victories (and more losses) than I’ve enjoyed as a Division I head football coach, and he’s not even 35. (To both of you who are wondering: My Division I coaching record is a perfect 0-0-0.)
Cornell is a typical Ivy League school in that NFL prospects have been known to compete up in Ithaca, and this year is no exception, as you’ll find out.
