On Sept. 21, the Ivy League proposed new legislation to the NCAA to combat early recruiting. If approved, the legislation would close the various loopholes that allow coaches to make contact with recruits before their junior year. Instead, recruiting, especially through phone calls and conversations at sports camps or clinics, would be prohibited until Sept. 1 of a student’s junior year of high school.
This is the second part to an article entitled "For the love the game," which originally ran on October 31, 2016.
And just like that, we’ve reached the final stop of a long and arduous journey: the last edition of NMW.
In what became the two greatest victories in franchise history, the Chicago Cubs turned to a pitcher so unassuming that his Twitter bio still refers to him as a right-handed pitcher “in the Chicago Cubs organization.” That’s right: despite posting the best ERA in Major League Baseball this season, Kyle Hendricks ’12 still hasn’t bothered to update this description of himself to reflect his status as a dominating starter, Cy Young frontrunner and World Series champion. In short, 2016 has been good to the right-hander from southern California.
In her first term at Dartmouth, Racquel Lyn ’20 has already made her mark on the women’s tennis team. At the Tribe Invitational in September, Lyn won two singles matches before pairing up with Taylor Ng ’17 and winning their doubles match during the Bulldog Invitational early in October. Without Kristina Mathis ’18, who did not play this term, Lyn stepped up and served as Ng’s doubles partner at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Northeast Regional Championship from Oct. 21 to 24. In their quarterfinal matches the duo defeated both the University of Pennsylvania and Cornell University 8-7 and 8-7. In the semifinals, Syracuse University defeated the pair, 2-6, 6-7.
From the very inception of NARP Meets World, it’s been a constant war of attrition between the editors of this paper and myself. Each week I bang my head against the wall in hopes of a semi-entertaining joke finding its way in the paper. Most of the time, it’s an incontrovertible strikeout. The only funny thing is how pathetic the column is. But every now and then, I am able to produce a witty joke that manages to get a small chuckle. These moments are exactly what I live for. You guys, my readers, are the only reason why I continue writing this nonsense of a column every week. I live for the fans, die for the fans.
On July 1, 2015, the Dartmouth rugby team announced its formal transition from club to varsity. Title IX, a law that prevents gender-based exclusion in any federally-funded education program, played a major role in the administration’s decision to ultimately approve of the transition. With Title IX looming over every gender-related sports decision at Dartmouth, several dedicated administrators spend time every day on the subject, and with nearly one quarter of Dartmouth undergraduates participating in varsity sports, the law undoubtedly shapes varsity sports at the College.
On any given Sunday at Dartmouth, the television room in the Collis Center is swarming with two things: New England Patriots fans and fantasy football players. While the Patriots fans celebrate Tom Brady’s most recent superhuman accomplishment, the fantasy football players manically check their lineups for injuries, scrounge for players on the waiver wire and hope they play the right sleeper.
Sports fans are ridiculous, but it’s fun to be ridiculous. From the kid running down the street in his boxers when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series to suddenly everyone rocking Cubs gear from head to toe, social media profile pictures and “Fly the W” flags popping up casually outside people’s windows, it’s all kind of ridiculous. We do it though, and regardless of how insane it looks to anyone else, real fans stand proud. And finally through a 108-year World Series drought and being down 3-1 in the series, the Cubs prevailed. They gave their fans something to be proud of. Kudos, Cubs fans, winning a world championship should be a fundamental right that every fan should be allowed to enjoy, at least once in life.
On Nov. 2, the narrative dramatically changed from “It’s gonna happen” to “It happened” for Chicago Cubs fans. After 108 years of suffering, mediocrity and disappointment, the Cubs finally took home the World Series. And what a Series it was.

Sports have a long and storied history at the College and to this day make up an enduring component of campus life with around 25 percent of the student population participating in one of the 35 varsity intercollegiate teams. As members of the Ivy League, students have the unique opportunity to compete at the Division I level, while challenging themselves with rigorous academic opportunities off the field. Balancing the dual dimensions of being a student-athlete comes with its fair amount of challenges and rewards; however, not all those who begin their college careers as athletes finish them as athletes. A number of athletes decide to step away from their sports for a multitude of reasons including injuries, divisive team cultures, lack of playing time and general burnout. This week The Dartmouth will look into why some athletes quit their sports and the overarching themes that apply to their decisions.
