Who Is "We" In This Rivalry?

Roger Hughes will be coaching in his 17th Princeton-Dartmouth football game when the Big Green come to Powers Field at Princeton Stadium Saturday (1 pm). Hughes has been the Princeton head coach since 2000, and he was the offensive coordinator at Dartmouth from 1992-99.

His personal record in the series is 11-4-1; he is 6-2 against Dartmouth as Princeton head coach.

Princeton and Dartmouth played some great games during Hughes' tenure as offensive coordinator. A feature story in the Princeton Athletic News game program for Saturday's game details the 1992, 1993 and 1995 games, and Hughes frequently refers to Dartmouth as "we" and Princeton as "they" in the story.

Hughes called the 1992 game "the best college football game I've ever been involved with." TigerBlog actually disagrees and calls the 1993 Princeton-Dartmouth game the better of the two.

As an aside, the many features stories that have been in Princeton Athletic News during the 2008 football season will be available in the next week or so on the football page of
