DART . . .

Here's a selection of photos shot last night and this morning of the work being done on the new home grandstand at Memorial Field. Click the pictures to enlarge them.

Look closely and you can see the DART lettering.
Here's a closer look.
The access opening on the north side of the stands has been sealed.
Staging remains on the outside of the stadium.
Former Dartmouth running backs coach Kiely Nagle is headed to the southern part of the state to serve as offensive line coach at Division II St. Anselm College in Manchester, according to Football Scoop.
One of the arguments used to keep football out of the NCAA playoffs is the length of the season. Is it a valid argument? Consider this:

If the Dartmouth men's ice hockey season began TODAY and the Big Green went on to play for the national title – as Yale did several years ago – they would still be playing AFTER the Dartmouth football season ENDS. And here's the kicker: The football season doesn't start for another 95 days.

Dartmouth men's ice hockey opens play against Harvard in Thompson Arena on Oct. 31 and the Frozen Four finishes on April 9, 2016 in Tampa. That's 161 days.

The Dartmouth football season kicks off Sept. 19 at Georgetown and wraps up Nov. 21 against Princeton in Hanover. That's 64 days.

Green Alert Take: Say goodbye to one of the arguments used to uphold the unfair ban on postseason football play.
It should surprise absolutely no one that Penn is bringing in a transfer linebacker from Syracuse. (Transfers are often housewarming gifts to new head coaches.) Colton Moskal, who redshirted for the Orangemen last season, will have four years of eligibility, starting this fall. (LINK) Moskal was a three-star recruit out of high school, where he had a 3.85 GPA according to Yahoo. (LINK)
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh invited every college football team in the country to send up to two coaches to his camp, but the only Ivy League school to take advantage of the offer was Dartmouth, which sent running backs coach Chad Nice. The Detroit Free Press has a story listing all the school that showed up, including Dartmouth University. (sic) LINK
