The Ivy League's "Coaches Conversation" is to be posted on the league site today at 10 a.m., supposedly along with the preseason poll. Look for it HERE.
Green Alert Take: The Coaches Conversation is a nice idea but only TOGETHER WITH A MEDIA DAY, not in place of a media day. I still have a hard time understanding what the Ivy League was thinking when it decided not to hold a media day of any sort.

•From Hero Sports (LINK):
It appears there is a segment of the college football population that would like to see an HBCU-Ivy League football game according to a fan poll conducted by HBCU Sports last week.
Green Alert Take: I never saw the poll and would have voted "no" because a single postseason "bowl" game would have given the Ivy League presidents a little cover for their indefensible position of banning one sport from going on to play in the NCAA playoffs while every other sport is allowed to play for a championship.
And from the world of computerized reading:
Check out BGA Premium tonight for full coverage of the second day of Dartmouth preseason football camp. They are slated to be on Blackman Fields at 1:30 (not 2:30 as noted earlier.)
A reminder: Unfortunately, sign-up for BGA is not automated. After hearing from you I have to manually activate your account. Depending on when I'm at the keyboard and have Internet access, that can take a few minutes or a few hours. Thanks for your patience.
