•The Daily Dartmouth follows up on the Big Green's eight-point loss at Holy Cross. The story includes this quote from Schwieger:
“We need to find a passing game. We were too one-dimensional.”
•Holy Cross coach Tom Gilmore quoted in a Worcester Telegram story headlined, Crusanders win, but lots of points left on field:
“We knew Dartmouth was not going to give up the big play, and they did not give up the big strike. Our big plays came on relatively short routes and runs that we wound up breaking into the second and third level. We felt like we could attack the middle and underneath with the way they were playing coverage, and we felt like we could get some runs in long-yardage situations.”Nice clear photo of Schwieger with the story.
•Dartmouth stands sixth in the Roar Lions Roar blog power rankings ahead of Princeton and Columbia and directly behind Cornell.

•With Harvard grad Ryan Fitzpatrick enjoying a strong season with the Buffalo Bills, Jay Fiedler is noted and quoted in a Newsday story about Ivy League quarterbacks in the NFL. Said Fiedler:
"If you're good enough to play and develop into a good player, then you're going to be successful. It just takes the opportunity to be out there. And I think for Ryan and myself, the opportunities weren't exactly thrown at us. We had to work for it and take our time and work our way up from backup jobs. And eventually, when we got our shot to go out there and play, we were able to take advantage and earn a starting spot."

•Joe Moglia, the former Dartmouth defensive coach and current CEO of TD Ameritrade, could be looking for another coaching job soon with the UFL season being cut short. The Omaha World-Herald has a story that includes this:
By midafternoon, Omaha Coach Joe Moglia was meeting with his team at the Kroc Center in South Omaha. At the meeting, Moglia asked his players if they could fully commit to a game against Sacramento if one could be arranged.
Moglia told the players that such a game was a long shot but that he would pursue it if the players wanted to play. After a players-only meeting, defensive tackle Dusty Dvoracek told Moglia that the players "were in" as long as there were assurances that they would be paid.
