The Last Time . . .

From the Dartmouth notes:
Seniors Jack Heneghan and Ben Hagaman have been named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District I Team. The honor recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. Heneghan, an economics major with a 3.79 GPA, has led Dartmouth to a 7-2 record as the starting quarterback, while Hagaman, a history major with a 3.32 GPA, has protected Heneghan as the starting right tackle. 
Dartmouth tight end Cameron Skaff discusses the premature end to his college career because of a head injury in the Valley News HERE.
The Hartford Courant writes about Yale trying to win its first outright championship since 1980 HERE.
The Yale Undergraduate Sports Analytics Group has Yale as an 11-point favorite with a 73 percent chance of winning The Game and denying Dartmouth and Columbia the chance at winning a share by claiming the outright Ivy League championship. (LINK)
SB Nation has a story under the headline: College football at Fenway Park is a crass, silly money grab (and it’s beautiful)
And finally, for those of you who have been checking this space since the days when she was the only girl on her Little League baseball team, the latest news about That Certain Dartmouth '14 is that she wraps up her fall as an educational ranger at Yellowstone today, and will be starting a seasonal stint in the same role at Grand Canyon starting in early December. (She also spent a winter as an educational ranger at the Everglades National Park.)

Before heading down to Arizona she had a chance to catch a Montana Griz game last week. She came away seriously impressed by the atmosphere, by Missoula and by the reach of the Dartmouth family, which made it possible for her to take in the game. Here's a pic she sent back from before the crowd filled in:
