Spring Has Sprung . . . On The Calendar

Welcome to the first day of spring and no, this wasn't shot here. We're still a long way from flowers . . . but not that far from the first day of spring football. In fact, barring a change it's only 15 days away with the Big Green slated to be on the field for the first time on April 4. The spring "game" is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, April 29.
Missed this while we were away but the American Sports Network is shutting down. (LINK) ASN televised seven Ivy League football games in 2015 including the Dartmouth-Princeton in Hanover. Last year it did the Penn-Princeton game and Rhode Island at Harvard game.
An opinion piece in the Yale Daily News last month argued that the school should stop recruiting athletes. (LINK) From the piece:
Yale could still be a great school if it never produced another good athlete. Actually, Yale could be a great school if it never produced someone who had ever watched a football game.

Spotted this framed artwork in the Dartmouth football office recently.
