ATN Podcast 252: Johnnies and Tommies and Panthers (oh my)

One of Saturday’s big games was well-known, well-promoted, and lived up to the hype of 19,508 fans. The other was played in front of a little bit fewer people, and was hardly predicted. So when the Johnnies beat the Tommies, sure, we knew that would be a big deal — but when Birmingham-Southern knocked off No. 7 Berry …

Berry had two chances to get back into the game in the third quarter, but Birmingham-Southern held firm. We talked with Panthers coach Tony Joe White about his team’s game plan, their star running back, and the mess created at the top of the Southern Athletic Association.

Plus, Keith gave his game ball to an offensive line, while one off-the-beaten path highlight was a Maine event. Someone threw nine touchdowns. UK soccer teams were cited. And rushing yards were a big negative. Plus, are the Johnnies a national title contender? Pat has seen them the past two weeks against top-notch competition and reveals where he moved SJU to on his Top 25 ballot.

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

Pat and Keith talk about it all in the latest Around the Nation Podcast. The Around the Nation Podcast is a regular conversation between Pat Coleman and Keith McMillan and guests covering the wide range of Division III football.

  1. Totally agree, but I haven’t been there and we were talking about most remote places in D3 we’ve been to. My goal was to go out there in Week 1 this year but didn’t really have the budget for it. 

  2. LOL – glad you didn’t spend any of your limited budget getting to D3’s version of the back of beyond. And thanks for the SAA coverage, Coach White’s opinion of the relative strength of the 4th place SAA team notwithstanding 😉

    (and not that you’ll ever need it, but another entry for your pronunciation guide would be my last name, pronounced not as it looks but ‘burger’ – appreciate the callout, always good to have a connection, tenuous as it is, to the craziest game-ending play in football history).
