Big Cat

Former Dartmouth offensive tackle Matt Kaskey '19 has signed with the Carolina Panthers and has been added to their practice squad. (LINK)

A two-time member of the All-Ivy League first team and second-team All-American last fall, Kaskey signed with the Los Angeles Rams last spring as an undrafted free agent and lasted until the final round of cuts.

Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens had this to say last night on BGA Premium after learning of Kaskey's signing:
 “Tremendous. I’m happy for him and happy for us. He is a talented player and (he’ll) have an opportunity to develop physically. He’s a big guy that moves extremely well.
“My thought was someone would pick him up. You can’t find guys like that that move that fast. I am happy for him. It is certainly encouraging. We talk to all of our guys about having aspirations and dreams. He had one and he is fulfilling it.”

Colgate's game notes for Dartmouth's home opener Saturday have been posted HERE and junior Grant Breneman, who quarterbacked the Raiders to the NCAA Quarterfinals last year, is not on the two-deep. Breneman was injured during the first Colgate series at William & Mary on Sept. 14 and missed last week's game against Maine. His injury has been referred to only as "lower body," and game video shows him in a walking boot.

Here's how quarterback is on Colgate's depth chart this week:
17 Jake Froschaugen (6-3, 210, Sr.) OR
19 Noah Rothman  (6-1, 200, Sr.)

The Harvard Gazette has a story under the headline, Why Harvard football still matters. The lede is pure Harvard ;-)
While the rest of the college football world marks the sport’s 150th anniversary this autumn, Harvard plans to wait until 2024 to celebrate. History and tradition are important at the country’s oldest college, which believes that it created the modern game in 1874 and whose varsity has been playing the same archrival for 144 years and performing in the same concrete horseshoe for 116 . . .
