ATN Podcast: Talking Oshkosh, new conferences and more

Psst … it’s possible to have a D3football.com Around the Nation Podcast without Keith McMillan, as long as we have someone from Around the Nation to fill in. So this month, while Keith is unavailable on assignment, Pat Coleman will be joined by current ATN columnist Adam Turer to fill the big shoes.

This month there are plenty of teams shuffling conferences to talk about, plus Adam reveals who will be his preseason No. 1 team and talks about his sleeper teams for 2017. We also talk with UW-Oshkosh running back Dylan Hecker about the way the Titans’ season ended, their interesting offseason and more, plus we check in with Norwich coach Mark Murnyack about the Cadets’ new conference and renewing some old rivalries.

The D3football.com Around the Nation Podcast is a regular conversation between Pat Coleman and (usually) Keith McMillan and guests covering the wide range of Division III football. It drops monthly in the offseason and during the season, weekly on Monday morning.

ATN Podcast: Our new Texas hosts, two-a-days and more

We’ve talked a lot already about the Stagg Bowl leaving Salem, which is big news in Division III circles, and now it’s time to take a look at the first of our new hosts, Shenandoah, Texas. Although the first Stagg Bowl in Woodforest Bank Stadium isn’t for another 20 months, we talked with the championship’s host to get an early idea of what they have planned, and it should be interesting to see how the Houston area supports the Stagg Bowl.

Meanwhile, there’s still a lot of talk and reaction about the elimination of two-a-day practices in college football, and Wash U coach Larry Kindbom, who leads the Division III coaches committee for the AFCA, talks about what has to happen next. Is this the time to resurrect the idea of spring practice in pads? Also, we talk with UW-Whitewater coach Kevin Bullis about his program — he described his reaction to the 2016 season as “pleased, but not satisfied” and it’ll be interesting to hear your take on it as well.

ATN Podcast: An end to two-a-days?

One of the big topics of discussion right now in Division III football, and in college football as a whole, is preseason practice time, including what seems to be likely — the end to two-a-day practices in camp. It’s certainly important to coaches, who have already planned their August camp, especially in Division III, where spring ball is not the same as at the other levels.

With us to talk about that and other issues are Muhlenberg coach Mike Donnelly, UW-Whitewater coach Kevin Bullis and Hope coach Peter Stuursma. In addition, Pat Coleman and Keith McMillan discuss the implications of the pending move of Buffalo State to the Liberty League, how that affects the playoff bids and schedules going forward. Plus. who bid to host the Stagg Bowl? We’ll talk about the possibilities.
