Listen Up, Listen In

Former Dartmouth linebacker Gordy Quist '02 of the Band of Heathens has written the very sweet Rainstorm Lullaby in honor of his new baby girl. You can listen to it here.

From a TBOH mailing:
This Thursday November 8th at 8PM CST you'll be able to watch Ed and Gordy perform from Gordy's living room on Stageit. The band took a short break in October while Gordy and his wife had their baby, so this is an opportunity to hear what the band has been up to, catch some new tunes, some old BoH classics and video chat with the guys. Tune in!  Click here to reserve your virtual "seat"
Here's what the two sound like. Gordy is on the left:

If you could tear yourself away from the election coverage last night you might have seen former Dartmouth assistant coach Pete Lembo lead Ball State to a 34-27 win over No. 25 Toledo on ESPN. Lembo, who served at Dartmouth from 1994-96, has a 92-45 career record in 12 years as a head coach (44-14 at Lehigh, 35-22 at Elon and 13-9 at Ball State).
Speaking of former Dartmouth assistants having success, offensive coordinator Jim Pry and Bethune-Cookman are one win away from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference title and an automatic berth to the NCAA playoffs. (link) Pry's bio includes this:
Pry comes to B-CU after serving as the offensive coordinator at Dartmouth in 2010, completing his 34th year coaching, while the Big Green ranked 44th nationally in rushing offense (165.70 YPG) and 47th in scoring (26.40 PPG). 
While at Dartmouth, Pry's offensive strategy guided running back Nick Schwieger to lead the Ivy League in rushing and finish sixth in the final NCAA FCS rankings, averaging 125.89 yards per game.
Give Harvard credit for finding an interesting way to raise a few dollars. From the Go Crimson auction website:
Authentic Harvard Football Jersey
