Here, There, Everywhere

This is a couple of weeks old but it just came across my radar screen. Uh, computer screen. The opener with Georgetown  is actually 13 days away.

In games featuring teams Dartmouth will be playing . . .

Saint Francis 48, Georgetown 20
Week One opponent Georgetown did not distinguish itself against Saint Francis of Loretto, Pa. The Red Flash, which hasn't had a winning season since 1992 and hadn't won its opener since 2006, jumped out to a 21-0 first quarter lead, piled up 332 yards in the first half and had two backs finish with more than 100 rushing yards. Saint Francis was picked fifth in the seven-team Northeast Conference. Georgetown quarterback Kyle Nolan was 14-for-29 for 110 yards with two interceptions and a long of just 12 yards. The Hoyas were outgained in total yards, 520-243, before a "crowd" of 1,836.

Sacred Heart 43, Saint Anselm 19
The Pioneers had no trouble with Division II Saint Anselm (which announced last month that it was in the process of applying to drop down to Division III). Fifth-year senior wideout Tyler Dube caught eight passes for 155 yards and All-NEC quarterback RJ Noel was 19-of-34 for 249 yards and two touchdowns while being picked off twice.
The Toronto Sun writes about "diminutive, muscle-packed Yale University rusher" Tyler Varga making the Indianapolis Colts roster. In case you are wondering, the "diminutive" Varga is 5-foot-11, 225 pounds ;-)
Jerry Tillery, the 6-7, 300-pound defensive lineman who is most certainly not diminutive and took a late recruiting visit to Dartmouth last season, had a four-yard tackle for loss yesterday as a true freshman at Notre Dame as the Irish manhandled Texas.

As for how That Certain School in central Pennsylvania did, don't mention it. Please.

Completion to the one ;-)

The sun was bright on the Green and White.

The Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders were two of the NFL teams to send scouts to Dartmouth during the week. Here they get a closeup look at Dalyn Williams.
