University Field, home of the Great Danes
A new article about incoming WR Ryan Flannery says his height is 6”4. I had seen him at 6”3 in most other stories.
Every inch helps.
I’d like to link you all to that article in the Attleboro Sun Chronicle, but that site just won’t load for me… and it almost never does. Someone at that paper needs to pay their ISP bill.

If Columbia does indeed play Albany and Sacred Heart at home this fall, I wonder if the Lions will ever make the trip to play those two teams on the road and make it a truly running series.
One of the reasons why I’m skeptical of any Columbia return engagements is the size of both Albany’s and Sacred Heart’s home stadiums.
Albany’s University Field is just a 10,000 seat facility
Sacred Heart’s Campus Field has just 3,500 seats.
To say that both schools are less than proud of their home fields would not be a stretch. It’s VERY HARD to find info about the stadiums even on their football websites.
Most Ivy teams have frowned on playing non-league opponents in such small venues in the past.
But Brown did play Albany at Albany this fall, so there is some tradition being made now.
Dartmouth played Sacred Heart in Hanover this season, and will actually make that trip to their tiny field in Fairfield, Connecticut this coming fall. It will be very interesting to see if the seats are filled for that game on Sept. 24th.
