Princeton Football: Strike Two!
Added by Joel Smithson on September 26, 2011.
Two games into the young season and the Princeton Tigers have come away empty handed. Game one against #16 Lehigh, was close right up until the last few minutes. That level of performance against a team of that caliber left Tiger fans positive and optimistic for the rest of the season.
All of this came to a stop as Princeton was embarrassed at home against Bucknell. With all the questions entering the season, two games gone, two losses, Bob Surace might be at the end of his stint as head coach.
Now, with the non-conference schedule almost finished, Princeton sets its sights on dominant play in the Ivy League. With eight games left to play, seven of them Ivy League, Princeton is keen on getting off to a strong start in conference play next Saturday against Columbia.
Bob Surace has given starting quarterback Tommy Wornham his vote of confidence, saying, “Tommy is the most intense, hardworking guy.” Wornham says that he has a lot of work to do. Fans are disappointed by his 3 interceptions and 174 yards of passing offense. Princeton had high hopes of knocking off Bucknell and improving to 1-1, but now with their season slowly sliding away, Princeton will try to hold off a surging Columbia team to avoid falling to 0-3.
