Big Green Alert Sign-up
Former Valley News sportswriter Bruce Wood writes the Big Green Alert blog, which gives you unparalleled coverage of Dartmouth football. Signups for the coming season have just opened. Go ahead. You know you want to. The site describes BGA as follows:
In 2017 sportswriter Bruce Wood is covering Dartmouth College football and Buddy Teevens exclusively on the Internet for the 13th consecutive year.
Prior to starting the most detailed coverage of any Football Championship Subdivision team in the country, Bruce spent nearly two decades as the Dartmouth beat writer for the local daily, covering not just football but the entire athletic program.
A Big Green Alert Premium subscription features the same comprehensive writing and reporting that has earned Vermont and New Hampshire Press Association recognition in past years.
Every game, home and away, is covered with a preview the day before, at least one story on Saturday night, a follow on Sunday, and the always popular Optimist-Pessimist on Monday.
Every single preseason and regular fall practice session over the first 12 years of BGA has been covered with a full-length story, featuring coach or player quotes. Double-session practice days would bring two stories.
There are least 8 stories posted on the site each week of the season, with at least one full-length story posted every day from the start of preseason until the final game.
BGA also offers full coverage of junior varsity football, the early-decision recruiting class, the regular-decision recruiting class and spring football.
Stories on games and practices are posted the same day they occur.
Sign up today to help Bruce provide a service that has no equivalent in the rest of the Ivies. Not only that, you’ll learn a huge amount about Dartmouth football and about the game itself.
We could do better.

When Love Beckoned in 52nd Street
We were at San Francisco’s BIX last evening, enjoying prosecco, cheese, and a bit of music. A full year of inhabitation in Northern California has unraveled to me no decent venue for proper lounging, but…

D Afraid of a Little Competish
So our colleague and Dartblog writer Joe Asch informed me that the D has rejected our cunning advertising campaign. Uh-oh. The Dartmouth is widely known as a breeding ground for instant New York Times successes,…

How Regents Should Reign
As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
