Former Dartmouth and Cincinnati Bengals great Reggie Williams thinks the NFL should flag an "unholy trinity" of hurtful words. Find the story here.
The Sports Network is posting a "primer" on each league heading into spring ball. You can read about the Patriot League here.

Holy Cross will be the lone PL opponent on Dartmouth's schedule next fall. Here are a few outtakes from the story about the Crusaders:
Holy Cross has three tailbacks who missed games because of injury last year, sophomores Gabe Guild and Brendan Flaherty and junior Elad Covaliu. 
Holy Cross is replacing its two top wide receivers. Sophomore Jake Wieczorek will have an expanded role after catching 12 passes last season.
Holy Cross has to start winning the close games. After going 1-5 in games decided by seven points or less in 2012, the Crusaders were 1-6 last season.
