From the Bleachers: XFL is Promising, But Not Enough to Give Up the Big League Chew

(02/24/20 7:05am)

The NFL season has unfortunately come to a close, which has left me with just about nothing to talk about during the last few weeks. I tend to think I’m less fun in the offseason, whereas most would probably just say that I’m less annoying. Nonetheless, with no college or NFL games to look forward to until September, I, along with many other middle-aged dads, find myself in desperate need of a new hobby. 

From the Bleachers: Younger Brothers Shouldn’t Gamble, and Other Lessons from Super Bowl LIV

(02/10/20 7:00am)

Through this column, I’ve been fortunate enough to teach my faithful readers some life lessons. A few weeks ago, I went straight to my social psychology textbook and discussed the power of the situation. Last week, I gave my East Coast audience an introduction to California culture — and probably shocked any investment banker readers by proposing the notion of going to work in khaki shorts and polo shirts. I don’t need to check the records to know that my dad rocked such a combination Monday morning. Or he might have hit the gym in the morning to blow off steam and then gone straight to the office in workout clothes. Those are the only two possibilities.

From the Bleachers: Chiefs over the 49ers

(01/27/20 7:00am)

Maybe it’s just that the Patriots aren’t in the Super Bowl, but I find myself more excited for this year’s rendition of the greatest event in sports than I’ve been in a long time. It’s fitting that the Kansas City Chiefs, who represented the AFC in Super Bowl I, will play for their second Lombardi Trophy in the league’s storied 100th season. They find themselves facing the five-time Super Bowl champion San Francisco 49ers, who can tie the Patriots and Steelers for both the most rings in NFL history and the most annoying fan base with a victory.

From the Bleachers: A Changing of the Guard in the NFL?

(01/13/20 7:00am)

I woke up confidently the morning of Saturday, Jan. 4, ready for a full slate of NFL playoff action. The last time a team that played on Wild Card weekend made the Super Bowl was in 2012, but I was sure this was the year that not one, but two, of those teams would break through. So I took to Twitter to announce my bold proclamation: I was predicting a battle between the New Orleans Saints and the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.  

2019 football captains named following Green-White game

(05/13/19 6:20am)

We are still several months away from Sept. 21, when the Dartmouth football team will travel to Florida for its first game of the season at Jacksonville University. But while the team’s first official game is still far off, the culmination of the Big Green’s spring practices arrived last week in its annual Green-White spring football game. 

Baseball closes 15-26 season with series loss to Cornell

(05/06/19 6:10am)

Per the old adage, baseball is a game of inches, and Dartmouth learned this lesson the hard way in its final week of competition. The Big Green lost three nail-biters, falling to the University of Maine 8-7 on Wednesday and losing to Cornell University 2-1 and 8-6 on Saturday. But the team rebounded to end its season on Sunday, winning 6-1 to give 30-year veteran head coach Bob Whalen his 600th career win.

Playoff hopes dim for baseball team after losing two to Harvard

(04/26/19 6:00am)

Arguably the most overused phrase in sports is taking the season one game at a time. But as the baseball team enters its last two weeks of Ivy League play, it is going to need to stick to this cliché in order to have any chance of reaching the Ivy League championship in spite of its current sixth-place standing. 

Baseball scoring and giving up runs at an alarmingly high rate

(04/15/19 6:10am)

Many people criticize baseball for being a slow-paced game without a lot of scoring. Scores like 3-1 and 4-3 are very common at all levels, and Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred has been trying to increase the number of runs scored since he took office. But lately, the Dartmouth baseball team has found itself in more high-scoring affairs with scores that would be more common in football games than baseball games. 

Kyle Hendricks ’12 signs record breaking contract extension

(04/01/19 6:20am)

Dartmouth and the Ivy League are better known for their academics than for their sports teams. However, that’s not to say that stellar athletes haven’t catalyzed their professional careers in the friendly confines of Hanover or the rest of the conference. Kyle Hendricks ’12 is the most recent Ivy Leaguer from the college to reach Major League Baseball stardom.

Men’s basketball drops to 2-10 in disappointing conference play

(03/04/19 7:15am)

The theme of the men’s basketball season has been losing close game after close game in Ivy League play, and to some degree, the trend continued this weekend. Princeton University defeated Dartmouth 77-76 in overtime on Friday night, while the University of Pennsylvania knocked off the Big Green more convincingly with a 65-51 win the following night. 

Transfer Ary-Turner prepares to play for Big Green next season

(02/25/19 7:20am)

With only one senior leaving after this season, the Dartmouth men’s basketball team has a promising outlook for the 2019-20 campaign. For starters, the team will return its entire starting lineup and all but one of its key contributors. Additionally, Trevon Ary-Turner ’21, a transfer from Weber State University, will be eligible to play next season and will be a huge addition to an experienced roster. 

Contributions from younger players anchor men’s basketball

(02/18/19 7:25am)

In the midst of one of its better seasons in recent years, one might guess that the Dartmouth men’s basketball team would be senior-heavy. Generally, when a team gets better and better each season, it’s because it doesn’t lose many key contributors and its current players continue to improve all the way through their senior seasons.
