A Gorgeous Day
The sky up here on the mountain is as blue as can be this morning and the sun is smiling down on us. But if you are a Dartmouth player, coach or fan who got completely soaked, yesterday was the beautiful one. If you don't believe it, check out the video above. It runs just over 3 minutes and will give chills to those with green blood and others who understand what this team has battled through. (Sorry for the quality; it's much better on the original.)
In a rarity, the Daily Dartmouth posted a game story on a weekend. Columbia Sports Information's official take on the game is here. Find the Dartmouth Sports Publicity take on the game here. There's even a bit about the singing of the alma mater by players, coaches, fans and alums on Dartblog.
A look at games featuring Big Green opponents:
Harvard 37, Princeton 3
Harvard quarterback Collier Winters was 13-of-19 for 190 yards but the start of the day for Dartmouth's next opponent was the Crimson defense, which limited Princeton to 157 yards of total offense.
Brown 34, Cornell 14
Kyle Newhall-Caballero completed 26-of-40-passes for 338 yards and Zachari Tronti ran for three touchdowns as Brown pulled away from the Big Red.
Penn 9, Yale 0
Penn beat Yale for the second year in a row without benefit of an offensive touchdown. The lone TD came on an interception return.
Holy Cross 42, Colgate 28
Dominic Randolph passed for four touchdowns and ran for two more as Holy Cross knocked Colgate from the ranks of the unbeaten.
New Hampshire 18, Hofstra 10
Tom Manning kicked three field goals including a school-record 54-yarder as UNH won despite accumulating just 268 yards of total offense.
And finally, breathe a sigh of relief when you read that Indiana State ended a 33-game losing streak Saturday with a 17-14 win over Western Illinois. But for Dartmouth's win over Columbia the Big Green would have been saddled with a distinction it never wanted. Also, Northeastern knocked off Towson, 27-7, ending a 13-game losing streak, meaning the three longest skeins in the nation were all snapped yesterday.
