Correct. Penn has the challenge of replacing a starting QB. Dartmouth has the challenge of having its QB return 😀

Heneghan *did* lead the league in passing. That's good enough to get you the Bushnell some years.

Led the league in yardage because he had more attempts than anyone else. Also threw more pics.

Dartmouth tied for 4th in yards per passing attempt, 4th in yards per completion, 6th in passing TDs.

Calvin - Dartmouth threw the ball more than anyone else as they were constantly chasing in the 4th Q. That's what 1-6 teams do.

These yards are often referred to as garbage yards. They have little meaning.

Maybe he'll be better next year but he was a lower tier Ivy QB this year.

The kid at Cornell also had a lot of garbage yards, but I think he looks like he has real talent - just not sure the rest of their team will be ready to ride him.

I believe my post was supportive of your (perceived) thesis that most passing yards does not necessarily mean most effective passing game.

Yeah "on again off again" Heneghan had his ups and downs as evidenced by his nickname but I think that bodes well for next year. Especially since your guy a very talented but green soph might have some growing pains since he played maybe 10 snaps. Meanwhile our guy played just about every snap and has IMHO the best returning receiving corps in the league a solid 2 deep at three spots including the ROY the texas tornado Hunter Hagdorn not to mention 3 top RB's. Dartmouth will be dangerous but at the moment Princeton is the fav.

Kill the beast and drink it's blood

nobody else has the best receiving corps as long as Watson is around. NFL bound.

Had Dartmouth's receivers caught well-thrown balls in the end zone, we would have been 6-4, 3-3.

And I think we have different definitions of "garbage yards."

I was wondering how long until Green made this argument.

Obviously no other teams had out of the norm miscues in critical situations, which makes it easy to figure out Dartmouth's real record after adjustmemt.

Archie Manning was a mediocre quarterback.

You mean the best receiving corp in the league was responsible for 1-6

Since the offensive staff was fired/demoted after the 1-6 record we know whose fault it is .

Holtsledge said "best returning receiving corps."

As far as depth/experience is concerned, its hard to argue otherwise. In the final three games, we only had one bad drop (Thompson muffed one against Princeton).

The Columbia pair (Wainwright/Ronald Smith II) has the potential to be up their if the continue to improve. Clearly the Penn WR is the best in the league.

at a local HS hockey game when the opposing goalie gives up one is

"it's all your fault, it's all your fault"

Not sure what you consider 'a well thrown ball', but of those catchable, the ROY had three no catches. The ROY probably had 50% of the targets and the rest went the other 5 or 6 first line receivers. His team leading catches and yards put only one TD in the books. That's a red flag in my book. I'd reserve opinion on D receiver group until the new staff has an opportunity to put them on the field. Believe the talent is there, just need to eliminate the 'garbage' and run an offensive scheme that can spread the defense and focus on getting the ball across the goal line.

I noticed Heneghan lead the win versus UNH. Dartmouth lost close games to Yale, Harvard and Columbia. Final drives to win or tie came up short. They rarely gained garbage yards. Heneghan has a lot of poise and talent; he improved as the year went on and handled Princeton in the 1st half. Heneghan's passing and running put him ahead of Banks. By the numbers certainly. Either way, not lower tier - unless I'm missing something.

Its hard to get the Bushnell on a 1-6 Ivy team. I believe Witkowski did it in 1983 but I am not sure if anyone else on the last place team has done it since. The Penn/Princeton QB's were far superior and I would put the Cornell QB above Henegham.
