ATN Podcast: That first loss

Some were surprising, some were foretold, and some where more competitive than expected, but in the end four teams in the national discussion each picked up their first losses on Saturday: Augsburg, Dubuque, Wittenberg and Worcester State. Who gained respect by losing? Whose win put someone else in the Top 25? And how was one of these games spectacular? Keith McMillan and Pat Coleman discuss in this week’s Around the Nation Podcast.

And that certainly isn’t all — there were two key games in the NJAC, some impressive interceptions, and a little lightning for our lightning round. That and more in this week’s podcast. See the list of tags at the bottom of this post to see who else is discussed.

  1. Pat and Keith;

    Your discussion of former D-III football players who are now in the NFL pressed a button for me. Chris Meidt was a coach at Bethel, the head coach at St Olaf, and the former quarterback coach with the Washington Red Skins. How many other former D-III coaches are/were involved with coaching in the NFL?


  2. Ed,
    There are a lot, probably more coaches than players. Not as many current, but here are a few recents off top:

    Belichick & Mangini (Wesleyan)
    Josh McDaniels (John Carroll)
    Spagnuolo (Springfield)
    Nick Caserio (Patriots player personnel dir; JCU)

    Kurt Schottenheimer I think was a Springfield guy
    Jagodzinski was UW-W … was Packers QB coach

    Phil Savage (Sewanee) was the Browns’GM

    Someone from Mount Union is in the Chiefs organization now
