News and Notes: Tuesday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Tuesday...

  • In profiling Columbia's new head coach, Kyle Smith, today in Andy Katz's "Daily Word" on ESPN.com, Katz writes, "The Columbia job opportunity opened when head coach Joe Jones decided to take an assistant coaching job at Boston College under former Cornell rival, coach Steve Donahue... [Columbia] doesn't have the recent unheard of Ivy success of Cornell with the Big Red's Sweet 16 run last March. ... Cornell, from upstate Ithaca, was able to capture the interest of plenty with its remarkable run to the Sweet 16, let alone its Ivy League titles the last three seasons. Harvard is trying to mimic the model. Princeton and Penn are attempting to make its own comeback stories. Smith wants Columbia in on the ride as well."
  • Louis Dale ('10) tweets his "good bye" to Cornell and Ithaca.
  • Speaking of Twitter, follow along with Cornell assistant coach, Ricky Yahn.
