Old Friend, New Place

Former Dartmouth assistant KiJuan Ware will be coaching the running backs at Western Illinois next fall according to FootballScoop. Ware, a Fullbright scholar who studied in Japan, was at Dartmouth in the 2004 and '05 seasons. He coached at Georgetown in 2006 and '07 and then spent a year at Notre Dame. He's been at Miami University in Ohio for the past two seasons. Find the bio of one of the good guys here.
Speaking of Georgetown, Dartmouth is scheduled to face Ware's old team in Washington, D.C., in 2015. This morning's tour of the usual BGA haunts led to a page featuring various design proposals for Georgetown's much-delayed Multi-Sports Facility, which will host the Big Green. The facility currently looks like this. Find another view here.
Barring a change (always possible) and weather permitting, Dartmouth begins spring football two weeks from today with the Green-White on April 30. Not all schools have posted their spring schedules but here are a few:
  • Penn began March 15, spring game April 9.
  • Holy Cross began March 19, spring game April 16.
  • Columbia spring game, April 22.
  • Princeton begins April 1, spring game April 23.
Tomorrow evening The University of New Hampshire will have a celebration of the life of Todd Walker, the football player who was shot and killed by a would-be robber last Friday.
From a Dartmouth release:
Collegiate Baseball announced its Louisville Slugger National Players of the Week this afternoon, and among the five was Dartmouth junior pitcher Kyle Hendricks. Last week the right-hander struck out a career-high 15 batters over seven innings in an 11-2 victory over Army, the most strikeouts by a Big Green pitcher in 39 years.
The two-time defending Ivy League champions sent 17 batters to the plate in a 13-4 win over Maryland-Baltimore County in Florida yesterday to improve to 5-4 on the season. The Big Green has four more games before heading north. Dartmouth is tentatively slated to open the home season Weds., March 30 against Siena.
And finally, we got about 5 inches of snow here on the mountain yesterday and the fresh powder sitting on top of the re-frozen corn snow made for some fun sledding down the 200-yard slope across the road from us. It's a long slog back up, I'll tell ya ;-)
