F. Hockey in Hunt For Second

(10/26/01 9:00am)

Barring a collapse of Boston Red Sox proportions, it appears the Princeton Tigers, ranked No. 7 in the nation, will win their eighth straight Ivy League field hockey title. The race for second place and the outside chance of an NCAA bid, however, remains wide open. Dartmouth (10-4, 2-2 Ivy) can take a huge step toward that second spot this afternoon with a win at Harvard (7-5, 3-1 Ivy).

Season of Chutes, Ladders

(10/26/01 9:00am)

Well, the season has just passed its halfway point and already it has been quite a ride. After the sobering experience of the September 11 attacks, Dartmouth's first three weeks represented the headiest days the program has seen in years. From the aborted but impressive comeback against New Hampshire in Week 1 to the one-point heartbreaker the next week against Penn, people were talking with unbridled optimism about this team's potential even before the Big Green picked up its first W against Yale in Week 3.

Bears Hungry for Penn

(10/26/01 9:00am)

By far the biggest game in the Ivies this weekend is Brown against Penn. The 3-2 Bears, owners of the most potent scoring offense in the league, look to even up their Ivy record (2-1) with the 3-0 Quakers' who are 5-0 overall. The key matchup in the game should be between the two big, bruising running backs: Michael Malan of Brown and Kris Ryan of Pennsylvania. Although the Quakers certainly have a better defense statistically, they have yet to face a back as accomplished as Malan combined with a quarterback as competent as Brown's standout, Kyle Rowley.

End It Already

(10/26/01 9:00am)

I seem to remember not too long ago a whole lot of dirt being kicked up by something called the Student Life Initiative. Now, for those of you who are new to the College or whose attention span has been ruined by too many mind-altering substances or too many boring econ lectures or too many late-night games of pong or too many poorly-constructed run-on sentences written by bitter, hackneyed columnists who always drone on about the same stupid subject, let me give you a brief synopsis of the SLI. The SLI is, as I see it, a three-pronged platform that, if implemented properly and efficiently, will turn Dartmouth into the greatest Ivy League institution in the world (north of Cambridge, of course).

Behind the scenes, anything but anonymous

(10/25/01 9:00am)

Every athletic team at every college, university or high school across the country is comprised of a gamut of personalities. The first to come to mind are the visible characters: players, coaches and fans. These are the game winners and goal scorers, the strategists and the whipping boys, the encouragers and the critics. Regardless of what sport is being played, the obvious cast of characters maintains a rather consistent formula. They put forth the effort, time and devotion that is the driving force behind every great team, game in and game out, season after season.
