No Surprise

Any doubts about the approach Cornell would take heading into Saturday's game at Dartmouth are dispelled in a story in the Cornell Sun under the headline, With Nothing to Lose, Football Seeks to Spoil Dartmouth’s Perfect Season. From the story (LINK):
“We don’t have the record we want — we don’t have the record we expect,” (Big Red coach David) Archer said. “And without anything to lose, that makes us really dangerous.
"So I view (Dartmouth) as having everything to lose — their entire season could go down the tubes with a loss to Cornell,” Archer continued. “And we have everything to gain.”
Green Alert Take: Listen and you can hear the photocopy machine whirring to life in Floren Varsity House.

In case you were wondering what the view was like from the press box Saturday at Yankee Stadium, this was it. The vantage point would have been great for baseball. For football? Not so much, but the huge video screen was a serious help. (Click photo to enlarge.)

Hero Sports has a 23-minute podcast with Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens in the aftermath of the win over Princeton HERE.
