The IrishNBCSports site has a STORY headlined Pregame Six Pack: Finishing spring practice strong that takes a look at a handful of intriguing stories out of Notre Dame's spring football drills.
One of the six segments is on Louisianan Jerry Tillery, who had a late flirtation with Dartmouth before graduating early and taking part in Notre Dame's spring practice. From the story:
The early-enrollee freshman has been the talk of spring, working with the first-unit defense and displaying dominant traits that have many believing the 6-foot-6 defensive tackle is a star in the making.And this . . .
One of Notre Dame’s quirkiest and most interesting freshman—he took an official visit to Dartmouth and participates in recreational triathlons— is also one of the best.
•The Daily Pennsylvanian has a look at three freshmen who are headed to West Philly. One is a 6-foot, 202-pound football player. From the STORY:

He credited this goal to Dominick Pierre, a running back at Dartmouth and one of his role models, who graduated from his high school four years previously.
•Dartmouth BASEBALL clinched its eighth consecutive Red Rolfe Division title yesterday, surrendering the tying run in the top half of the last inning of both games of a doubleheader with Brown and then coming back to score the winning run in the bottom of the same frame. The Big Green won by scores of 2-1 and 8-7.
There was less drama on the SOFTBALL field where Dartmouth pulled off a 4-0, 6-0 sweep of Brown that has the Big Green one win away from a third consecutive north division title.
Buzzfeed has Dartmouth No. 4 on its LIST of most beautiful campuses. Lists like this are incredibly silly but we all love to point to them when we like what they say.
For what it's worth, Buzzfeed has Colorado's Boulder campus listed at No. 2, and when we toured the campus last summer we all commented on how beautiful it was. It's hard to believe Buzzfeed could have found a worse picture that the one it used of a gorgeous campus. This picture would have been a much better representation of the school.
•Dartmouth football practice resumes with practices Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. It could be a tough week weatherwise:
