•Sorry, but I just don't get it. From the Ivy League's weekly football notes (LINK):
For the ninth time in the past 11 seasons, the Ivy League will claim the distinction of having one of its teams among the last in NCAA Division I (Football Bowl Subdivision or Football Championship Subdivision) to kick off the 2014 season.Green Alert Take: I'm not sure "distinction" is the word I would use. Not unless it is preceded by the word "unfortunate."
Former Dartmouth tailback Bill Daly is a co-winner of the 2014 Lester Patrick Trophy for outstanding service to hockey in the United States.
