Worth A Look

Expect Dartmouth tight end Robbie Mangas to have a strong rooting interest in Monday night's LSU-Clemson national championship game. Mangas, a 6-foot-4, 250-pound sophomore who has three TD catches in his first two years in Hanover, is the younger brother of LSU offensive analyst DJ Mangas.

The older Mangas, a onetime W&M walk-on who led Richmond in catches, yards and touchdowns receiving as a senior in 2011, joined Ed Oregeron's LSU staff last February after five years coaching at his alma mater. Mangas was the second-youngest offensive coordinator in the nation when he assumed that role at age 28.
Nothing is set in stone yet but barring a surprise expect breaking news on Dartmouth's 2020 opening game opponent before long. The Big Green has had to scramble to find a last-minute replacement for Jacksonville, which announced at season's end that it was shutting down its football program.
The Ivy League will have not one, but two quarterbacks in the East-West Shrine Bowl Jan. 18 in St. Petersburg, Fla. Princeton QB Kevin Davidson will play for the East team and Yale quarterback Kurt Rawlings has been a late addition to the West squad.

Also playing in a postseason all-star game is Yale offensive lineman Dieter Eiselen, who will be playing in the NFLPA College Bowl, also on Jan. 18, at the Rose Bowl.
The Dartmouth has a story outlining the college's overall early decision class HERE. Per the story about 25 percent of the 547 early decision offerees are athletes.
