OK, write this down and put it where you can find it so you can save some bucks by booking your air travel early ;-)
Dartmouth's spring game is scheduled for Saturday, May 4, during freshman parents weekend. The spring game is usually played in late morning. In case you are wondering, that's 151 days away. A few other countdowns:
- 126 days until the first spring practice (Apr. 9)
- 265 days until players from more than 500 miles away check in (Aug. 26)
- 291 days until the opener at Butler (Sept. 21)
•Jay Greenberg has a story about Ivy League defensive player of the year Mike Catapano on his fine Princeton football blog. Catapano reports:
". . . I have one All-Star Game coming up.
Can’t say which one because the roster isn’t announced yet. But I think I’m the only player from the FCS at this one, so it’s my chance to compete against the LSUs and Alabamas.
•Speaking of which, Cornell confirms yesterday's report that Big Red offensive lineman JC Tretter is headed for the Senior Bowl in late January. Find a story here.
•This is kind of a fun one. Dartmouth Now has a blurb about Philip Hanlon's announcement as the next Dartmouth president being splashed on the big screen overlooking Times Square in New York City. To see the photo and read a little background, click here.
