What Can Brown Do . . .

The latest Teevens Teleteaser from the Dartmouth sports publicity office:

Defensive back Mike Banaciski, linebacker Michael Runger and linebacker Garrett Wymore were announced Thursday as members of the Capital One Academic All-District football team as chosen by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). The honor recognizes achievement on the field as well as in the classroom. Banciski is an engineering major with a 3.48 GPA, Runger an economics major with a 3.76 and Wymore an economics and neuroscience double-major with a 3.90. The three are among 16 Ivy Leaguers who will now bo on the national ballot, which will be release on Dec. 6.
The Dartmouth's preview includes a note that the Cornell, Princeton and Brown school papers join The D in picking Dartmouth while the Columbia Spectator is the outlier, picking Brown.
The Brown Daily Herald preview talks about the Big Green's ability to move the ball on the ground and includes this quite from Bear head coach Phil Estes:
“It’s their strength against our strength. We do a good job in stopping the run.”
If you were watching Thursday Night Football, a reader notes, you got a good look at Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens in a clip showing Andrew Luck at the 2004 Manning Passing Academy. Teevens is an  associate director of the MPA.
