Sacred Heart isn't on Dartmouth's schedule this fall but something interesting has happened at the NEC school where, according to The Sports Network, neither of the two redshirt junior quarterbacks who battled for the starting position the past several years is expected to play.

Another NEC school that Dartmouth will be playing in another year is bringing in a junior college quarterback from California according to the same TSN story. There's a good chance the Big Green will see Timothy Morovick when it opens the 2014 season with Central Connecticut. He helped Mt. San Jacinto to a 9-2 record last fall.
The Dartmouth men's ice hockey team has its back against the wall again in the ECAC quarterfinals after dropping a 4-1 contest at Union to fall behind in the three-game series, 1-0. The Big Green (15-13-5) needs to win the next two games to advance.
Speaking of tournament action, the DVR will be set at 11:30 this morning for the Vermont-Albany game for the America East men's basketball championship and a trip to the NCAA Tournament. Maybe the only thing better than watching the longshots in the opening round of the NCAA's is watching that final game for all the marbles. It doesn't matter the league, I'd watch them all . . . except, of course, the Ivy League championship game . . . which doesn't exist.
Woke up to 13 degrees and a couple of inches of snow here on the mountain. Not sure what it looks like down in the valley today but it's gorgeous up here.

With nightime temperatures below freezing and the mercury rising during the day the sap is running on sugar maples. We haven't put up buckets in a few years but we'll be headed over to Sugarbush Farm in Woodstock this afternoon to check out its sugaring and cheesemaking operation. If you ever get a chance when you are in the area it's worth the drive because while there are a lot of too precious Vermont tourist traps, this isn't one of them. It's a real, working Vermont sugarbush.

I was upstairs in the Black Family (Visual Arts) Center at Dartmouth the other day and snapped this shot of the art installations in the pavilion between the new building and the Hopkins Center. Click the pic for a better look.
