    While McCord is MIA (message board banter suggests he is out of school) before you relax, keep in mind that the Big Green will get its first real look next fall at 206-pound tailback Nate Eachus, a two-time member of the All-Patriot League first team. Billed in the prospectus as an All-America candidate, Eachus rushed for 241 yards in a little over two quarters against Cornell as a freshman, and 216 yards and five touchdowns last year against Lafayette. Despite missing three games with injury last fall he ran for 919 yards and was fifth in the nation in rushing touchdowns.

    Also billed as an All-America candidate is returning quarterback Greg Sullivan, who finished second in the Patriot League last fall both in rushing and passing efficiency.

    The "outlook" also includes 245-pound fullback Sam Spitz, a transfer from Wisconsin who was the Badgers’ "offensive scout team MVP," once last season.

    It’s clear that Colgate is not going to change much from last year: Sully and Eachus beating you every which way on the ground, and once you get too comfortable Sully will make that aerial play to make you pay. Yes, they’ll really miss Simonds (who is probably going to be heading to the NFL, maybe even as a late round draft pick), and their heir apparent isn’t all that apparent yet. But this bruising fullback looks like he’s going to be a bear to stop.


    The Green should be worried. Gate will be tough hard nosed O. They will need it as their D not that good. It will be hard to overcome their potential TOP. If Ceech can gear up so we can score big this season, we can pull it out. Thank God we have great depth on DL and LBwe willneed it.
