The month of June is the last month of serious offseason. By the time we get to the end of July, our Top 25 and preseason All-America teams are out and you can throw away those magazines that give you one page of D-III content and render our division 99% invisible.
As Pat and Keith work on Kickoff, there’s attention given to all 250 teams, whether you’re No. 1, No. 26, No. 138 or down near the bottom end. This month’s podcast talks about the Kickoff features, plus Pat and Keith’s take on how to put together a preseason Top 25 that makes a little more sense than one you might read in a D-I mag.
In addition, we talk with Chip Knapp, who has the unenviable task of following a friend as head coach at Wesley. Along with the tragic way in which he got the job, he also inherited a new workload and has to hire a new defensive coordinator at a pretty late date. Plus we chat with Jim Barnes, former Wooster and Augustana coach, who is helping Division III teams travel the world on overseas tours with American Football Worldwide. That and more on the June 2018 podcast.
The D3football.com Around the Nation Podcast is a regular conversation between Pat Coleman and Keith McMillan and guests covering the wide range of Division III football.
