Saw this Dartmouth men's lacrosse helmet design on Twitter. Don't know if it's official but Bob Blackman would approve ;-)

After reading the Jan. 30 posting on Folly Coffee, Mrs. BGA placed an order and the beans arrived yesterday. She made a pot this morning and gave it a big thumb's up. "Smooth" is the word she used. Not being a coffee drinker I have to take her word for it ;-)

What's the deal with Folly Coffee? Former All-Ivy League center Rob Bathe is the roastmaster general. Check the earlier posting HERE.
A Friend of BGA with alert eyes and a DVR captured this screen shot from the awarding of the Walter Payton Man of the Year honor to JJ Watt of the Houston Texans.

Tomorrow is the traditional National Signing Day but tradition was broken this year with an early signing day, even among FCS-bound players. STATS takes a look at what the change has meant at the Ivy League level of football HERE.
Dartmouth has 13 athletes and one coach at the Winter Olympics, which start this week. The Dartmouth has a roundup HERE.
