Camp Town

Click to enlarge.
The camp season is when an interesting cocktail of kids looking to develop their skills and a more serious group of potential recruits hoping to catch the attention of the coaches show up on college campuses all over the nation. A good number of the latter group who come to Hanover in late June will make pilgrimages to some or all of the other Ivy League schools to get a feel for the coaches and for the coaches to get a feel about them.

For more information, visit the Buddy Teevens 2014 Football Camp site.
The Harvard Crimson is reporting that Harvard coach Tim Murphy was hospitalized earlier this month for "a few days," after undergoing "offseason surgery," and is at home recuperating. He is expected to make a full recovery. From The Crimson:
In Murphy’s absence, offensive coordinator Joel Lamb and defensive coordinator Scott Larkee have assumed head coaching duties. Over the past few weeks, they have managed offseason practices and drills in preparation for Murphy’s return to spring practices.
Davidson of the Pioneer Football League will play 12 games for the first time this fall, including one at Princeton.

The Wildcats are kicking Aug. 30 at College of Faith-Charlotte, a member of the American Small College Athletic Association.

While Davidson and the others playing 12 games are in action the Ivy League, which is stuck at 10 games, will be . . . wait for it . . . just watching. Same as when the NCAA football playoffs being. Same as when the rest of the free world is enjoying a postseason basketball tournament.
