QB, Coach And Tech News

Turns out Florida transfer Jake Allen won't be the only QB coming to Dartmouth from another college this fall. Returning to the Big Green mix this season will be senior Harry Kraft, who spent last year at Colby College in Maine. Kraft was a member of the Dartmouth football team as a freshman and sophomore, playing on the junior varsity.
A Massachusetts paper has a Don Brown opus that details the long and winding road he took from coaching high school football in White River Junction, Vt., to his first college position as a grad-assistant type at Dartmouth, through his return to Hanover and all the way to his current position as the well-regarded defensive coordinator under Jim Harbaugh at Michigan. From the story:
In the early 80′s Don left Dartmouth and took a job at Mansfield College in Pennsylvania. It was January. “By the time we bought a house it was March,” said Deb. “We moved in June 1. On January 1 he went back to Dartmouth.” This time for more pay, at least.

The Ivy League's (former?) sister league is expanding its instant replay this fall.

From a Patriot League release (LINK):
Six of the seven Patriot League football members will have instant replay systems installed at their respective venues prior to the season. Due to an ongoing construction project, replay will be made available at Georgetown University’s Cooper Field for the 2019 football season.
This is the third season of instant replay availability within the Patriot League, but the first where a majority of games will have access to the technology. During the 2016 and 2017 seasons, instant replay was available at one Patriot League game per week.
The six venues outfitted for instant replay by WingWarp will have up to 12 cameras available for use by the replay officials. The replay system includes unmanned cameras along with feeds from institutional television partners and/or feeds from the Patriot League Network (PLN).
Green Alert Take: Kudos to the Patriot League. Don't be surprised if the Ivy League joins suit . . . well before you expect ;-)
