Know Your 2011 Opponents: Princeton

No matter how you look at it, it was a rough year for the Princeton Tigers in 2010.

In head coach Bob Surace's first season at the helm of the Tigers, the senior-laden team collapsed to a 1-9 record, and got swept in Ivy League play for the first time since 1973.

It wasn't all his fault - his NFL-caliber linebacker got injured in the 35-22 defeat to Lehigh, and a slew of different injuries afflicted Princeton during the course of the year - but by any measure, it was an incredibly rough rookie campaign for the former assistant coach on the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals.

The Tigers, though, will be more dangerous in 2011 than last season's record might suggest.  That's because that NFL-caliber linebacker, senior LB Stephen Cody, took a medical redshirt year and will get one more crack at beating Lehigh. All of a sudden, this game doesn't look like such a cakewalk. (more)
