ATN Podcast 175: Defenses keep showing up

Offensive numbers catch the eye, whether it’s 98 points or this week’s 79 or 332 receiving yards and six touchdowns. But Keith has this thing about defense also being part of the game, and that’s hard to argue, as long as we still play 11 on a side. In this week’s D3football.com Around the Nation Podcast, Pat Coleman and Keith McMillan take a look at some of the places where defense shows up, expectedly or not so much.

Pat and Keith run through all the top news, the hidden highlights, the risers and sliders, the quick hits and quick misses and more from the week in Division III football. That, plus the game(s) which weren’t played, and what that means for the programs affected

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. During the season, it hits your feed weekly on Monday morning. This week, we thank Fanraise for sponsoring our podcast.

ATN Podcast: Top 25, blue turf, new bowls, how you can help

Hey, we know, we didn’t have a May podcast. That’s totally because we planned to bring you an extra-long podcast in July. Yes, we have a podcast and a half for you because there’s way too much to talk about. Pat Coleman and Keith McMillan give their take on the D3football.com preseason Top 25, first off. 

Also, that blue turf just looks too cool, doesn’t it? Luther College is having that installed this offseason, so we talk with coach Aaron Hafner about that, the team’s option offense and more. King’s coach Jeff Knarr talks about his former boss, Mike Donnelly, who is struggling with leukemia, and Pat and Keith talk about efforts to find the bone marrow match. And East Texas Baptist coach Scott Highsmith talks about the expanded American Southwest Conference, his being the third ETBU coach in three years and more.

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. It drops monthly in the offseason, and during the season, weekly on Monday morning.

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.
