Here And There

The Dartmouth football office mic'd up nickels coach Danny O'Dea for its latest video. Watch this one to the end for a sweet treat ;-)

Barring unforeseen developments, Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens will live be on the Fox & Friends morning TV show tomorrow. The piece is tentatively scheduled to be on at 7:50.

According to Teevens, the hosts are interested in . . .
". . . football safety, concussive head injury, MVP, tools that we use to make it safer. It’s nice to see people continue to have an interest in what we are doing. With spring practice and spring games coming up there is an awareness. Hopefully people keep learning what we do and more will do it."
Also of interest will be a report at 9 a.m. on the internet channel Cheddar, which bills itself as, "A live and on demand video news network focused on covering the most innovative products, technologies, and services transforming our lives." (LINK)
You did check out yesterday's posting about the Cirkul water bottle being developed and marketed by former Dartmouth players Andy Gay, Garrett Waggoner and Michael Runger, right? A day ago they were at 76 percent of their fundraising goal. As this is written they are at 102 percent. Check it out HERE.
Buried in a blurb on the STATS site is confirmation of what we pretty much already knew. Harvard quarterback Joe Viviano will be back next fall as a fifth-year senior after missing one year with injury. (LINK)
Speaking of fifth-year seniors, the Ivy League doesn't allow 'em as a general rule, which is why not one but two graduating Columbia punters could be kicking in the SEC next year. This is not a joke.

With lots of confusing stuff in the recent NCAA ruling on football recruiting FootballScoop has a Q&A that simplifies things. It's unclear how much is just FBS and whether any pertains to the FCS, but this is interesting and long overdue (LINK):
The NCAA is now officially designating camps as recruiting events, which means the organization is no longer policing the impossible-to-track rule prohibiting coaches from talking recruiting with players they brought to camp to recruit.
The Big Green will be back on the field for practice No. 7 today. Check BGA Premium for coverage.

Also, the postponed practice will be made up next week when the schedule will be: Monday-Wednesday-Friday-Saturday. The first three sessions are in the afternoon with the Green-White capping the spring on Saturday morning.
