ATN Podcast 274: Who knows what’s next?

One school has announced already this spring that it is closing, and who knows whether there will be more?

How many Division III student-athletes missed out on their NFL opportunity because of the shutdown of pro days and in-person scouting?

What kind of Division III football season will we see this fall? Will we see it in the spring instead?

In this edition of the Around the Nation podcast, we talk with one coach who held an online spring practice, another who got four actual on-field practices in, and then we talk about the big picture of college and college athletics here headed into the summer. 

Huntingdon and coach Mike Turk got the players together on the field for a few practices this spring before everything closed down in March because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Kyle Sweeney held his spring ball with Claremont-Mudd-Scripps entirely on Zoom. You’ll hear about their different experiences in Alabama and California in their podcast interviews. Dan Dutcher, the vice president for Division III at the NCAA talks about the chances of spring football. And Chris Pesotski of Cavalier92 Consulting, a former D-III student-athlete and coach, gives his take on where higher education is headed in this time of uncertainty. What’s the most important thing coaches can do at this time? Plus, Pat and Keith play matchmaker and give their dream non-conference game for any season.

We discuss that and more in Podcast 274.

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.
