From a Dartmouth release earlier this week:
A total of 1,049 teams from across the NCAA Division I landscape were honored with Public Recognition Awards based on their most recent multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR).
And . . .
With Dartmouth leading the way, fellow Ivy League institution Brown was second with 22 teams earning APR distinction. In all, 117 Ancient Eight programs were honored, comprising more than 11 percent (11.1%) of the entire Division I programs on the list.
Keep in mind, of course, that in terms of total numbers of programs honored, the Ivy League should lead the way because it fields more teams that virtually any conference.

Once again, Dartmouth led the way with 26 teams earning recognition, marking the third straight year the college has topped the list.

Former Ohio State head football coach Jim Tressel has named president of Youngstown State University (LINK) which brought about this Tweet from ESPN football analyst Paul Finebaum:
So Jim Tressel can serve as president of Youngstown State and hire and fire.  But the NCAA won't let him coach. Only in America.
Beginning the long slog back to the Upper Valley shortly. Catch you tomorrow.
