Jacksonville Drops Football

Jacksonville, slated to be Dartmouth's season-opener next fall, has announced it is dropping football. (LINK)

Dartmouth crushed the Dolphins in Florida last fall, 35-6.

The Big Green must now scramble to find an opponent for Week 1. A number of Division II schools, including New Haven, are listed as needed a Sept. 19 opponent HERE.

Some future FCS schedules can be found HERE.

Green Alert Take: After having just four home games last fall the hope has to be the Big Green can find another home game for 2020 and not have to play six away from Memorial Field again . . . if it can find a suitable opponent.

Green Alert Take II: Maybe they can make orange juice from lemons and sneak in an FBS game with a nice payday if they have to hit the road.
