The Dartmouth has a story about Dartmouth's use of Championship Analytics. Running backs coach Chad Nice explains that the information provided by the company, "allows us to make data-driven decisions and not (purely) emotional (ones). It makes sure everyone is on the same page."
Work on replacing the FieldTurf surface at Memorial Field is slated to begin Wednesday.
