Recruiting And GREAT News

You know it's cold when you hit "scan" on your car radio and that s-l-o-w-s down. We didn't hit the 24.9 below I've written about in the past, but 16.9 below here on the shoulder of Moose Mountain is pretty good ;-)

OK, here we go again. This is an updated list of recruits per internet reports. Positions are speculative, obviously subject to correction, and no doubt in some cases flat-out wrong. (Email me ;-). All the warnings from the other day are still in effect:

Best news of the day by a country mile: The Dartmouth reports that Athletic Director Harry Sheehy participated in the inaugural student-athlete talent show. From the story:
Sheehy surprised the crowd as the first act of the night, dedicating the song “Halleluiah” to his wife. 
The back story is that Connie Sheehy has been battling an extremely serious illness and has turned the corner enough that the athletic director, who had been by her side at the hospital for weeks, was comfortable enough to honor her in the touching way that he did. Doubtful there was a dry eye in the house among those who know what the Sheehys have been going through.

Among other performers was freshman wide receiver Victor Williams who played guitar and sang Musiq Soulchild’s “Don’t Change.”
