Sheer Madness?

A website with the somewhat unfortunate (given recent – and not-so-recent – developments) name of College Sports Madness has released its All-Ivy League football team (link) and Dartmouth had four players chosen:

QB Jeff Mathews, Cornell
RB Nick Schwieger, Dartmouth
RB Chuck Dibilio, Princeton
WR Shane Savage, Cornell
WR Ryan Calvert, Penn
TE Kyle Juszczyk, Harvard
OL Ryan O'Neill, Dartmouth
OL Kevin Murphy, Harvard
OL Greg Van Roten, Penn
OL Jack Geiger, Brown
OL Gabriel Fernandez, Yale
K Patrick Jacob, Princeton
KR Rashad Campbell, Cornell

DL Josue Ortiz, Harvard
DL Caraun Reid, Princeton
DL Clayton McGrath, Brown
DL Jared Sholly, Penn
LB Jordan Haynes, Yale
LB Daniel Smithwick, Brown
DB Eric Rask, Penn
DB Rashad Campbell, Cornell
DB J.B. Andreassi, Dartmouth
DB Shawn Abuhoff, Dartmouth
DB Alex Gedeon, Harvard
P Jacob Dombrowski, Harvard
PR Gio Christodoulou, Yale

Coach of the Year: Tim Murphy, Harvard
Offensive Player of the Year: Jeff Mathews
Defensive Player of the Year: Jordan Haynes, Yale
Freshman of the Year: Chuck Dibilio, Princeton

A link earlier this year pointed you to the flashy, interactive Inside Cornell Football website. Just discovered there's also a Cornell Football Virtual Guide. Time will tell if these initiatives will have the same on-the-field result, but they have a little bit of the pioneering feel of what Bob Blackman brought to the Ivy League when he arrived at Dartmouth in the mid-50s. Make no mistake, Cornell and coach Kent Austin mean business.

Speaking of coaches, the Columbia Spectator writes that there's a Dec. 15 deadline for settling on a replacement for Norries Wilson down in the Big Apple. The Spec quotes Columbia Athletic Director Dianne Murphy:
Do you see these raccoon eyes? I haven’t slept for days. This is what I’m focused on because Columbia deserves a winning football program.
