The official Dartmouth Sports Publicity site has a short blurb on practice with the schedule HERE, and the local daily has a report HERE.
Full coverage with photos and videos (including the one at the top of this page) was on BGA Premium last night.
Those of you who signed up for "alerts" should have received one last night. Keep in mind, the list was compiled using handwritten notes you sent along (unfortunately, those "a's" can look a lot like "e's" etc.), via emails with addresses (best), and in some cases by going back to the address you used to sign up in the first place. I mention that by way of saying the list is a work in progress.
If you signed up for the alert option and didn't receive one, email me the information. Thanks.
I'll be back at practice this morning and will post coverage later today.
•Dartmouth's new alternate uniforms were unveiled during the Football 101 extravaganza. Now it's Penn's turn:
Green Alert Take: It's either a generational thing or the Penn Stater in me, or probably both, but I don't quite get it ;-) I can understand liking a new uniform, but to react as if you just won the Super Bowl on a last-second field goal?
By the way, in the video there's a mention of Penn's fourth different uniforms making it the, "Oregon of the Ivy League."
•A friend of BGA shared a link I missed to new technology that a USA Today story (LINK) explains . . .
. . . takes an existing playbook – in this case, the plays given to the camp's quarterbacks – and layers it onto a wide range of defensive alignments, forcing users to digest and dissect formations and schemes in the seconds or split-seconds before the snap.More from the story:
in a time when the NCAA and college conferences are strengthening limits on physical contact in practice, Axon's training boards preserve the body while sharpening the brain.Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota uses the technology and had this to say:
"It's a great tool for college athletes. It provides an opportunity to kind of get live reps without going through practice. It's all visual stuff, and the game's like 80% mental anyway. So if you can get more mental reps, it will help prepare you for the season."
