ATN Podcast: Kickoff and KICKOFF approaching

Every August, Keith McMillan and Pat Coleman do about a 12-hour huddle to go through the process of ranking all 248 teams, ranking the conferences, editing some of the volumes of stories that come in for Kickoff and lately, drop a new podcast on you guys. So, expect to hear some talk about who the 2016 surprise teams will be, who is expected to drop a little further down the ladder, and oh yeah, what we think about those purple powers’ chances this time around. Plus get their reaction to the news out of Susquehanna, Ithaca and Christopher Newport.

The Around the Nation Podcast is a weekly conversation (monthly in the offseason) between Pat Coleman and Keith McMillan covering the wide range of Division III football. It drops on Monday morning weekly throughout the season, starting on Labor Day.

ATN Podcast: Moving to the next level

One of the questions we’ve focused on in our slate of offseason podcasts is to ask coaches what it would take for their school to get to the next level. And we don’t mean Division II. Earlier this offseason we asked what the distance is like between Wabash and the elite teams in Division III. Or this time, what separates Stevenson from reaching the level of Wesley, the power in Division III in the Mid-Atlantic? What would it take for St. Thomas to join the Mount Union/Whitewater tier?

Guests this month include St. Thomas coach Glenn Caruso, Stevenson coach Ed Hottle and Howard Payne coach and athletic director Hunter Sims.

ATN Podcast: Getting ever closer

D-III alumni are currently playing in Mexico, with D-III coaches on the sideline, while as the 2016 season gets ever closer, we start talking to coaches about what’s coming up in training camp. Plus, Pat and Keith talk about the preseason magazines — you know, the ones not titled Kickoff — and the typical crop of preseason rankings.

Guests this month include Franklin coach Mike Leonard, Washington & Lee coach Scott Abell, Lawrence head coach Rob McCarthy and Lawrence offensive coordinator Mark Speckman.
