Cornell connection fuels Giants' run to SBXLII

The Giants are the first Super Bowl team with three Ivy Leaguers on the roster, if you count the injured Jim Finn. But the key to the Giants’ late run to the big game is obvious: guard Kevin Boothe of Cornell.

(Zak DeOssie went to Brown.)

Boothe has appeared in four games this year on special teams – the pivotal, narrow loss to the Patriots Dec. 29 and all three playoff victories.

If Tom Coughlin had checked with me on this earlier in the season, the Giants might have had a better record and an easier path to Glendale. Better late than never.
