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.

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.

Around the Nation Podcast: Tense moments

Whether you were among the excited, with no rooting interest, or among the tense, with your season hanging in the balance, the 3 p.m. hour-plus in the Eastern Time Zone on Saturday was a great time to be a Division III football fan. Three games came down to the final play, and Pat and Keith talk about them all in detail, as well as the other 13 first-round games, in this week’s Around the Nation Podcast.

This week’s podcast is sponsored by the City of Salem, hosts of Stagg Bowl XLIV. For more information about the Stagg Bowl or any national championship Salem hosts, visit salemchampionships.com.

ATN Podcast: The bracket reaction

We’re still feeling really good about this bracket — about the teams selected, about the first-round pairings, about so much of it. We’ll hear from the NCAA committee chair, Jack McKiernan, gets Keith’s view on watching his alma mater clinch an automatic bid and talk about that John Carroll-Mount Union game. Plus, we’ll discuss who got the best and the toughest draws, what the best first-round games are, what (if anything) the committee got wrong and more in this week’s Around the Nation Podcast.
