TV Or Not TV, That Is The Question

In a short story about the Harvard-Yale (Yale-Harvard?) game being pushed to  2:30 p.m. kickoff that will require portable lights be brought into Yale Bowl, the New Haven Register has all-but confirmed what a lot of people already knew. The Ivy League will again have a TV package this fall with NBCSN, which is how the NBC Sports Network is referring to itself these days. (A reminder that NBCSN is the cable/satellite channel formerly known as Outdoor Life Network and then Versus.)

The Ivy League hasn't released the TV schedule for NBCSN, but between leaks about games being switched to Friday nights and the Register report on The Game, here are games we expect will be broadcast:

Friday, Oct. 2 – Columbia at Princeton
Friday, Oct. 23 – Penn at Yale
Friday, Oct. 30 – Dartmouth at Harvard
Sat. Nov. 21 – Harvard at Yale

While the rest of the schedule is still a mystery, Big Green fans should keep their ears peeled for news of another NBCSN game.
Dave Casper '78, a former teammate of Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens, has been named CEO of Chicago's second-largest retail bank according to Chicago Business. (LINK)

Casper was a three-year letter winner as a defensive lineman at Dartmouth, where his roommate was Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner. As a senior, Casper was awarded the Manners Makyth Man Award, given "to the varsity football player, selected by his teammates, who has best conducted himself to the advantage of the College in the sense of William (of) Wykeham's phrase, 'Manners Makyth Man.' " (Teevens won the award the next year.)
Speaking of Buddy Teevens, he'll speak in support of the Practice Like Pros push for injury prevention at the Louisiana High School Coaches Association’s annual Coaches Clinic. Among the speakers earlier in the clinic are LSU's Les Miles and Florida State's Jimbo Fisher. (LINK)
