Schwieger Update

After training in San Diego with USA Rugby, Nick Schwieger '12, Dartmouth's all-time leading rusher, is back in the east ready to pursue a career in construction management according to The Dartmouth.

From The D:
“It was a tough decision to leave because it was great to be out there with a good group of individuals who are so passionate about their sport,” Schwieger said. “Although rugby is great, it didn’t have the same spark that football had for me. My heart was back home in New England and I wanted closure on my athletic career.”
Kijuan Ware, a member of the Dartmouth coaching staff for the 2004 and '05 seasons, is moving from offensive coordinator at Western Illinois to the coaching staff at Eastern Michigan according to the CoachingSearch website. Ware's Western Illinois bio is here.
Boston.Com is carrying an AP story built around former Dartmouth wide receiver John Idzik '82, newly named GM of the New York Jets.
Yes, the conference-jumping/pushing takes place at the FCS level also. From The Sports Network:
Having announced a move to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in most sports, Monmouth University has been denied its bid to remain in the Northeast Conference as an associate member in football.
More from TSN:
The Big South Conference and Patriot League, both seeking to expand membership, could be potential landing spots for Monmouth.
Green Alert Take: Not at all sure Monmouth fits the Patriot League model.
This 1947 video shows a lot of Dartmouth and Hanover that still looks familiar. The mockup of the proposed Hopkins Center doesn't look even remotely familiar. There's a one-play clip from a Dartmouth-Penn football game on Memorial Field at the 14:40 mark. (Hang with it, the video takes a while to get going ;-)

Just 16 below last night. Should be just a few below tonight and then (according to the latest forecast) starting to moderate.
