    I saw both Tufts and Conn College play when they came to Middlebury for the season opener. They are not the roll over teams they used to be.
    It's the "on paper" trap. Once again proof positive the competitive level up an down the NESCAC can't be taken for granted. Good stuff.

            Of all the outcomes this weekend, Bowdoin losing to Conn College and Tufts was the least expected. Shocking really.

              Middlebury 7 Hamilton 2.
              Now that's better. Hopefully Beaney will give Klein a little run in goal now. Other than one alarming puck-handling mistake behind the net in the first, he looked good. Midd is really talented and fast, and they forecheck like nobody's business. A stabilized goalie situation would do a lot.

                    This was found on a football site and is largely about the Bowdoin Lacrosse team, but usually some lax players participate in hockey, too. It is front page news in Maine. Below are some links to the Bowdoin Orient. Most interesting are the comments following the Dean's letter. Also there is a link to the Sun Journal article on the incident


                    Though not technically about football, here's a news item that does impact a bunch of football players at one NESCAC school.

                    Tim Foster, Bowdoin's Dean of Student Affairs, has just sent a strongly-worded rebuke to the Bowdoin community for a most heinous, politically-incorrect crime against humanity. The crime?

                    This year (as in years past) the off campus house that includes many of the Polar Bear Men's Lacrosse team as members, hosted a Thanksgiving celebration party. A theme party. A costume party, at which guest were invited to celebrate the original Thanksgiving by dressing up as either Pilgrims or Native Americans. A gathering re-enacted with great approval at Plimoth Plantation (yep, that's how they spell it), the beloved site which re-enacts the original Plimoth settlement to the delight of small children, PBS and educators everywhere.

                    My child at Bowdoin reports there were no ugly caricatures at the party; certainly nothing so offensive as Chief Wahoo, or the logo of the-football-team-from-Washington-which-must-not-be-named. Just a good humored party to celebrate the season (as opposed to the unimaginative keggers that are de riguer).

                    Apparently the painfully PC Bowdoin Administration took great offense to this "hate crime". So much so that they have promised "disciplinary action against those who recently dressed in Native American attire, since this is 'conduct unbecoming of a Bowdoin student'".

                    Strangely enough, there is no similar punishment for those who dressed in Pilgrim attire. I am not sure if that is because the Pilgrims have a better sense of humor, or that they just haven't attracted the sort of leadership hell-bent on protecting their image and their rights.

                    There is talk of cancelling the Bowdoin Men's Lacrosse season. (And in the wonderful NESCAC tradition of multi-sport athletes, many members of the football team are also members of the lacrosse team).

                      Utter nonsense. Very sad. Money usually gets the administration's attention. I might suggest the Bowdoin alumni protest this travesty of justice with their wallets. I think you'll see the matter quietly disappear.

                              Credit Bowdoin for this nice act - Bowdoin president Barry Mills informed the Ramos family that the college would provide full financial aid to enable Justin Ramos, son of NYPD officer Rafael Ramos, who was gunned down by a cold-blooded killer Saturday along with his partner, Wenjian Liu. to complete his Bowdoin education.

                                A nice thing to do both by Bowdoin and the Silver Shiled Foundation,both cops and firefighters very much appreciated these gestures.
