When I started writing this column, I swore to myself that I wouldn't fall into the same trap as some of the previous sports columnists for The Dartmouth who focused on random things jokes about 1990s sports movies and B-side analyses of pro sports.

Jorge Rodriguez '12 put forward the argument in this space last week that Dartmouth students have an obligation to attend sporting events because doing so will help boost the Big Green to more wins.

My younger brother sent me a text message Friday afternoon that said, "Who sucks more? You guys or Penn?" Like many, my brother was making his picks in ESPN's awesome Streak for the Cash game, which gave Friday's basketball game a bit of national attention since it was listed as an option. Whether ESPN chose to include the game in its daily menu of pick 'em's because of the two teams' embarrassingly bad records (Penn was 2-14 and Dartmouth was 4-14 at the time), the recent spotlight on the Ivy League due to No.

Late drive opportunity falls short as football falls to Lions

Jared Bookman / The Dartmouth Staff Alex Jenny '10 lined up at Columbia University on Saturday in a critical situation -- down a touchdown with less than two minutes on the clock, ready to lead a drive into the wind and pouring rain to tie the game. But in a season where little has gone right for the Big Green, the misfortune continued, as Andy Shalbrack picked off Jenny's pass over the middle, securing a 21-13 victory for the Lions. It was head coach Buddy Teevens' first-ever loss against Columbia (1-5, 1-2 Ivy), as a player or a coach.
