Meet up at Matt's!
The great Matt Sodl '88 has asked me to remind everyone in the Southern California area that he is hosting a special reception at his home for Head Coach Norries Wilson this Tuesday May 11th.
You have to register for the event by clicking here.
A second reception for the coach up north in Palo Alto is slated for the next night.
This will be a great chance to speak with the coach, some ex-players and lots of Lion fans out west.
And to bone up on just who Matt is, (in addition to clicking on his name link above), make sure you order the film 8: Ivy League Football and America by clicking here. Matt's story is one of the best features of that excellent documentary.
You just knew at least one Ivy school would grab one of the dozens of eligible players from the suddenly discontinued Hofstra football program.
Dartmouth is the first to make it public. The Big Green are getting sophomore DT Julian Flamer.
I will be surprised if he is the only Hofstra player to go Ivy. But Flamer was a natural choice as he was recruited by Dartmouth before he chose Hofstra a few years ago.
One team that must be thinking about Hofstra is Brown. The Bears had serious kicking game problems last season and Hofstra had two kickers on its roster who were high school merit scholars.
