From the Dartmouth football office:

Good news out of Jacksonville, Fla. (LINK):
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed first-year DB Charlie Millerto their 90-man roster, the club announced today. The Jaguars now have 90 players on their active roster.
Miller, 6-1, 190, spent the final 14 weeks of the 2017 season on Jacksonville’s practice squad after originally signing with the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie on May 1, 2017. Miller attended Dartmouth College and appeared in 24 career games, totaling 70 tackles and three INTs.
Miller will wear No. 22 for the Jaguars.
Craig Haley, the FCS senior editor for STATS and the rare national writer who has actually seen Ivy League teams play (he used to cover Princeton as a newspaper writer) has posted his Ivy preview HERE. His prediction:

1. Yale
2. Harvard
3. Princeton
4. Penn
5. Columbia
6. Dartmouth
7. Cornell
8. Brown

HERO Sports has its own prediction up and it looks like this. (LINK)

1. Yale
2. Princeton
3. Penn
4. Dartmouth
5. Harvard
6. Columbia
7. Cornell
8. Brown 

From the HERO posting:
KEEP AN EYE ON: Jack Traynor, Dartmouth
The unanimous All-Ivy League linebacker from 2017 finished second in the conference with 98 tackles, earning a score of regional and national recognition in the process.
And . . .
Columbia. Harvard and Dartmouth both came close, but Columbia edged out all other Ivy Schools as the most engaged fan base this summer.
The preview, by the way, begins this way:
The Ivy League should have its most intriguing conference race in years this fall. 
Green Alert Take: Uh, I don't think so. Not when just last year there was a possibility of a seven-team tie with two weeks to go in the season ;-)
It's back to the practice field for the Big Green this afternoon. Check BGA tonight for all the details.
