The Redshirt Senior: The Tanking for Tua™ Dolphins and Other Bad Teams in the NFL.

(10/04/19 6:00am)

We’re four weeks into the 2019 National Football League season and the narratives are already popping up around the media. After all, four data points is more than enough to make definitive statements regarding the state of a team this year, right? Nothing is ever set in stone. For example, the Los Angeles Rams were undefeated going into Sunday with a win against the 2018 NFC runner-up New Orleans Saints; the Rams would lose 55-40 at home against the 1-2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Kansas City Chiefs were undefeated and putting up massive points going into Sunday. They would barely beat the often-overlooked Detroit Lions (now 2-1-1) in a game where Pat Mahomes threw zero touchdown passes. The Miami Dolphins even had the lead at one point against the Los Angeles Chargers. Anything can happen!

Renovated Friends of Dartmouth Rowing Boathouse dedicated

(09/30/19 6:05am)

On a bright Saturday morning after tough races against Yale University and Boston University, the rowing community at Dartmouth gathered for the dedication of a newly-improved team facility: the Friends of Dartmouth Rowing Boathouse. Presided over by Dartmouth’s director of athletics, Harry Sheehy, the ceremony was centered around appreciation for those alumni who built the program and made these renovations possible, as well as the opportunities it opens for the future leaders of Dartmouth rowing. 

The Redshirt Senior: A Look Ahead to the 2020 NFL Draft

(09/30/19 6:00am)

Week 4 of the NFL season has just come to a close and like last year, there are some teams in the league that, for all intents and purposes, are starting to phone it in and look toward the 2020 NFL draft. I wrote about this last year and some of the players I wrote about have looked like I expected (Deebo Samuel with the San Francisco 49ers) while some have looked worse than expected (Greg Little with the Carolina Panthers). Let’s take a deep dive.

The Redshirt Senior: Tom Brady and the Unconventional Path to Success

(09/23/19 6:00am)

Happy job-hunting season! If anyone turned to the sports section to try to get away from resume reviews and cover letter writing, you’re out of luck because I’m writing this to put off doing the same thing. In the spirit of the season, I wanted to take a look at some of the players in the National Football League who had a non-standard career path and found success in the league. The path to success is not a straight line and your self-worth is not related to the perceived success of others.

Men’s cross country wins home meet, finishes strong at Boston

(09/23/19 6:05am)

The men’s cross country team began the 2019 season on Sept. 7 like it does most seasons: by winning its home meet. The Big Green was then met with a much greater test of its strength in the form of the Boston College Coast-to-Coast Invitational. There, it placed seventh among a competitive group of 21 schools. After a strong but imperfect meet, the team is optimistic for the remainder of the fall season.

Women’s rugby drops tough match to perennial foe Harvard

(09/23/19 6:15am)

Women’s rugby fell to Harvard University 50-34 Saturday afternoon despite a strong second-half charge. The Harvard-Dartmouth matchup has proven to be a tough test for both teams in recent years and is shaping up to be similarly challenging in the 2019-20 season. In Oct. 2018, Harvard bested the Big Green at the Ivy Rugby Championship. The next month, Dartmouth struck back and beat the Crimson to win the National Intercollegiate Rugby Association title. This season’s NIRA preseason rankings picked the Big Green to repeat as national champions with Harvard again as runner up.

Cole Sulser ’12, the 29-year-old former Dartmouth right-handed pitcher, was called up to the Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball after a seven-year stint in the minor leagues. He played his first game on Sept. 2 and through six solid games, has made his case to be on the team’s potential playoff roster.

Swann, Traynor lead way for championship-hungry football team

(09/16/19 6:25am)

The Big Green football team has unfinished business to take care of this fall after narrowly missing the Ivy League title one season ago. After winning its first seven games of the 2018 season, Dartmouth fell to the Tigers of Princeton University, who went on to win the conference championship. With many key players returning, the Big Green will look to win its first Ivy title since 2015.
