Physicality plays key role in Lions’ loss to Harvard

It’s not everyday a college football team gets shut out 69-0.

In Harvard’s history-making defeat of the Lions on Saturday, the Crimson scored its most points in a single game since 1946, and achieved its biggest margin of victory since head coach Tim Murphy took over the program 19 years ago.

In this week’s In The Zone Postgame Show, the Columbia Daily Spectator football beat writers discuss the factors that led to the loss and what both head coaches had to say after the game.

    And wow on the size difference. Looking at the rosters side by side, our guys are puny.

    what an embarassment!
    and to believe Dr Murphy and Bill Campbell passed over legendary Don Bosco coach Greg Toal to pick Mangurian!
