*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:

- 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 ;-)
