Around the Nation
« on: November 17, 2016, 07:20:53 am »

If you hadn't heard, I took over the Around the Nation column for D3hoops.com this year - the first one went up last night.

http://www.d3hoops.com/columns/around-the-nation/2016-17/passing-the-baton

We are hoping to leave the team feature stories to the various Around the Region writers and cover topics that are more general to d3 (across regions and gender).  I'm hoping to get feedback on the columns here, talk about possible topics, debate, whatever.

If you've got ideas or questions, this is a good place to do it (also in the actual comments section on the column).

Thanks for the ETBU mention. For Coach Bert West, the road trips for Waskom (TX) High School will not be nearly as taxing as those to Alpine TX or Clarksville AR.

Yeah, I wanted to mention something about his one month retirement, but, you know, word count.
