ATN Podcast 247: The one with buy or sell

There are lots of teams in Division III which you have questions about, and you’re not alone. We have the same questions about a handful of teams, and in this edition of the D3football.com Around the Nation podcast, Pat Coleman and Keith McMillan tackle a few of them. Are they on track or overperforming so far? It’s buy or sell on the podcast.

And then, we have lots of questions for Salisbury coach Sherm Wood. His team is back in action this week after two consecutive bye weeks, and the win against UW-Oshkosh is kind of a distant memory, even though it’s the last game they played. How did the Sea Gulls keep the guys busy for two weeks? Plus, Wood talks about whether he ever thought he would be a long-time head coach at his alma mater, where the program has grown, and whether it can break through past the national quarterfinals. Also, Wood and one of his proteges are two of a small number of black head coaches in Division III football, and he talks about that as well.

This edition of the D3football.com Around the Nation podcast is sponsored by Gotta Have It: 3D Fan Foam Wall Signs for the D-III fan in your life.

Plus, everyone talks about their games to watch, we get Keith’s one-liners, Pat has to spell his name and Keith has to keep it close, and much more in Podcast 247: The one with buy or sell?

Pat and Keith talk about it all in the latest D3football.com Around the Nation 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.

ATN Podcast 243: The one with all the mascots

This week is the last gasp of non-conference play for some schools, where the Northwest and SoCal will be battling it out all down the line, and the MIAA and NACC will be doing so as well. Plus conference play gets started with two huge games in the CCIW, and the MIAC gets underway.

Guest Mike Schmidt, the head coach at UW-La Crosse, talks about his team’s 2-0 start and how he and his staff use analytics to get the right guys the ball and in the right spot in the lineup.

Plus, we coin the Schenectica Cup (even if that’s for the wrong game), Keith has to pick teams to win based on their mascot and Pat has to pick them by vowel, and there’s a Mug, and five one-liners and no … the points don’t matter. Except where they do.

Around the Nation Podcast 226: Four hours with eight games

Sixteen teams play eight games over a course of four hours on Saturday, in the second round of the NCAA Division III playoffs. And we should be in line for some great games, now that we’ve gotten through the first round.

Exactly how good? Pat ranked all eight games from worst to best, with one particular matchup getting particularly high marks. In addition, we talked with Rod Sandberg, coach of Whitworth, whose team hasn’t been to the second round in a while, about the challenges the Pirates face not only with their St. John’s opponent as well as traveling halfway across the country. We also chat with Johns Hopkins coach Jim Margraff about his team’s success in bouncing back from an early-season loss and heading to Frostburg State this weekend.

Pat, Keith, Adam Turer and Frank Rossi preview all eight games and get you ready for our noon kickoffs in our Game Day podcast for Week 13. 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.
