And here's what Dartmouth will be wearing:

Not only do the writers for The Crimson actually cover Harvard football games at home (a novel concept for at least one Ivy League school) they even go on the road. A column predicting this week's results offers up a little background. For what it's worth, the writer picks Dartmouth to get in the the Ivy League win column by defeating Cornell, 24-17.
Should have mentioned this earlier, but former Dartmouth defensive end Charles Bay was inducted into the school's Wearers of the Green Saturday for his play on the U.S. National football team. Find a photo and details on this year's inductees HERE.
World Series Game 7 starter Kyle Hendricks '12 pitched admirably in the Chicago Cubs' 8-7, 10-inning win over the Cleveland Indians last night, throwing 4 2/3 innings, allowing just one earned run and giving up just four hits. The announcers last night and commentators this morning seem to believe pulling the former Dartmouth standout after a walk with two outs in the fifth inning was a questionable decision.
