Interested in buying DVDs or VHS tapes of old Dartmouth football games? They aren't cheap but a lot of them are available HERE. Just be careful because there are a lot of UMass-Dartmouth games in the same listing. Not having seen these recordings I can't vouch for them but the guess is a lot of them are coaching tapes taken from above.

UMass-Dartmouth, by the way, is a Division III team with the interesting nickname, Corsairs ;-)
Dartmouth has announced endowments for three head coaching positions. From a college release:
Gregg Lemkau ’91 and his wife, Kate, have established the Bobby Clark Head Coach of Men’s Soccer position—named in honor of one of Dartmouth’s most storied and successful soccer coaches—through a $2 million endowment.
Russell Boss ’61 and his wife, Marjorie, have created the Marjorie and Russell Boss 1961 Family Head Coach of Women’s Tennis position through a gift of $1.5 million.
The anonymous donor has endowed the head coaching position of the men’s Nordic ski team with a $1.5 million gift.
From the same release:
Just recently, John F. Lundgren ’73 renamed the endowed men’s golf coach’s position in honor of the late Bill Johnson, who coached the Dartmouth men’s golf team for 34 years. 
Add another Ivy Leaguer to the list of Ancient Eight players getting an NFL shot. The Portal 31 blog is reporting that Yale linebacker Charles Cook has been invited to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers minicamp. He was selected to the All-Ivy League second team last year.
