Tuesday News Day

The official Dartmouth football site has a follow on yet another honor for Nick Schwieger, who will graduate holding most of the Big Green rushing records. From the site:
Chosen for the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) All-America Third Team two weeks ago by the Associated Press, Schwieger was honored by the Gridiron Club of Greater Boston last week with his selection as one of the two recipients of the 73rd annual George “Bulger” Lowe Award, “New England’s Heisman Trophy” and one of America’s oldest college football accolades.

The Lake Forest (Ill.) Patch has a story about Evan Boudreaux, whose mother Gail Koziara Boudreaux set Dartmouth basketball records that will not be broken (take that to the bank) and whose brother, Chris, was a jayvee tight end at Dartmouth this fall. The 6-foot-4 younger brother is a varsity basketball starter as a freshman at Lake Forest High. (He also played backup quarterback on the varsity football team.) From the story:
Gail scored 1,933 points and grabbed 1,635 rebounds in 89 games for both the university's men's and women's basketball programs.
For the record, she didn't play for the men's team. ;-)

And . . .
“She taught me to crash the boards,” Boudreaux said of his mother’s tutelage. “She said if you go to the basket, good things will happen.”

On the football front, a former Dartmouth assistant and a current assistant have been floated on the most widely visited Ivy League message board as potential candidates for the soon-to-be-vacant Yale head coaching position. The former assistant is UConn defensive coordinator Don Brown, an assistant at Dartmouth in '82 and defensive coordinator from 1984-86 who also coached at Yale and was a successful head coach at UMass among others. The current assistant is Dartmouth offensive coordinator/line coach Keith Clark, who was at Yale from 1997-2008.
