So ... figured I would start this since it could be one place for everyone.

NCAA DIII has made a decision on pre-seasons for all fall sports: http://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/media-center/news/division-iii-increases-length-fall-sports-preseasons

The second weekend of the DIII Men's and Women's Championship Tournaments is set to start. Can the upset minded teams continue to prevail? Can the "favorites" maintain their poise? What home team will enjoy their own cooking? And who will still be playing in Fort Wayne and Salem?

On Thursday's Hoopsville, Dave is joined by a number of guests to get a look not only at the action ahead this weekend, but the action coming at the final fours. Which teams seemed ready to be playing one more weekend?

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Thursday's show will air live starting at 7:00 p.m. ET. here: http://bit.ly/2C82LcA (or via Facebook Live and Periscope simulcasts).

General football / Regional Realignment
« on: February 13, 2019, 01:10:40 pm »
I am not sure if you guys have discussed this on these boards before or not (my guess is not as other changes didn't really have that much of an affect on football), but there very well could be changes coming.

While I should be linking to a D3sports story, I will post this for now: http://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/media-center/news/diii-championships-committee-supports-regional-realignment?division=d3

It appears football will be pushed to six regions - something I had been told probably would happen since this was first being discussed. There aren't a lot of details in the story, but you can put two and two together for the most part.

I hope to have someone on Hoopsville Thursday evening to discuss it and better understand all of this.

This is also not set in stone as of yet, but I don't see any reason this wouldn't go through.

We never have done this, but figured it might be good to have a thread surrounding the D3hoops.com Classic in Las Vegas. We are entering our NINTH season!

Here is more information on the teams, matchups, and more for this upcoming year: http://www.d3hoops.com/classic/2018-19/d3hoops-classic/pairings

General Division III issues / The #WhyD3 Show
« on: November 19, 2014, 01:00:11 pm »
I am not sure how many people are aware, but there is a new show dedicated to Division III that I have put together with support from D3sports.com and the NCAA. It's called The #WhyD3 Show and it's first episode debuted in late September. It is a monthly show dedicated to student-athletes, coaches, administrators, teams, programs, conferences, and others and what they are doing off the fields and courts and the difference they are making in their communities or as students. We also take a look at the topics and challenges that face the division including what is now an annual "State of Division III" with Vice President Dan Dutcher (major portion of the debut episode).

I won't go on and on about the show here, but here are some links for more information:
- Main website: www.d3sports.com/whyd3show
- Show Announcement: http://www.d3sports.com/whyd3show/announcement
- September episode: http://www.d3sports.com/whyd3show/archives/september
- October episode: http://www.d3sports.com/whyd3show/archives/october
- Facebook: www.facebook.com/WhyD3Show
- Twitter: www.twitter.com/WhyD3Show (or @WhyD3Show and #WhyD3)
- Email: whyd3show@d3sports.com

We are always asking for story ideas, videoes already put together, and plenty more. Also, we want to know why student-athletes love or chose Division III, but in just three words (www.d3sports.com/whyd3show/three-words).

And as we work to put together November's episode, we should note that the show will be dedicated in the honor of Jack Copeland who died suddenly last week. Jack was instrumental in helping The #WhyD3 Show get off the ground and supporting it at the NCAA level. He was more than willing to send story ideas, help with promotion, and encourage the idea of a show dedicated to the student-athletes of Division III. Jack was also instrumental behind the Discover, Develop, Dedicate campaign for Division III and was a huge proponent of the division. While I only got to meet and know Jack on a personal level starting in September, I knew of him and his work much longer. His influence and status in the division was well known and respected and he will be missed. Division III and the NCAA has lost a great advocate and devoted man. (http://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/media-center/news/longtime-ncaa-writer-dies-oklahoma?division=d3).

Thank you... hope you can check out the show on occasion... and we look forward to feedback and ideas.

Region 5 men's basketball / MBB: General Mid-Atlantic Conversation
« on: December 11, 2013, 10:12:58 pm »
I thought it might make sense to start a general Mid-Atlantic conversation. There are plenty of board members who talk about teams from different conferences in difference conference pages... so why not bring those general conversations into here. Also, we can discuss regional rankings, NCAA tournament chances, etc. regarding the entire region.

And to make it interesting, I am starting a poll as to who the best team in the region is as of the middle of December. We can change that question every week if we want.

So let the conversation begin!

General Basketball / Hoopsville: Division III Basketball's Talk Show
« on: January 07, 2011, 05:48:48 pm »
We have started a new thread for a new season of Hoopsville. I have honestly lost count on what season this is... 9th or 10th... but we are back all the same.

Sunday, January 9th will be the season debut for the '10-'11 season and we already have a full line-up. We will be talking to coaches from Whitworth, Plattsburgh St., Virginia Wesleyan, and Amherst (women), along with regional reports from the Midwest, West, and East. Pat Coleman and I will also discuss the season so far and our trip to the D3hoops.com Classic in Las Vegas!

So tune in on Sunday from 7 - 9 PM EST. And don't forget to tune in the rest of the season on Thursday and Sunday nights from 7-9 PM EST.

You can also head to our official website at www.d3hoopsville.com for more information, watch and interact with the show live, or catch the archives of previous shows. You can also check out the Hoopsville Fan Page on Facebook or on Twitter (@d3hoopsville).

And we will see you SUNDAY!

Region 5 women's basketball / WBB: Landmark Conference
« on: February 20, 2007, 07:24:46 pm »
I realize the 2006-2007 season has not come to a close... but its not too early to look ahead and that means a new conference in the Mid-Atlantic or Atlantic Region (Pat is so thoughtfully linking this posting board to both regions!).

So... welcome to Catholic, Drew, Goucher, Juniata, Merchant Marine, Moravian, Scranton, and Susquehanna to the new "Landmark Conference." While I don't think an "official" website has been launched, Wikipedia already has a page about the conference, so enjoy the quick read.

Now... some news to know:

- Schedule:
After much debate (from what I heard), the conference has decided on a combination of a Friday/Saturday and Saturday/Sunday schedule.
Half of the schools wanted on version, the other wanted half. I know a tentative schedule has been decided on with at least dates... with the first games taking place on Dec. 1st, 4th, and 5th between travel partnerts and the final game will be Feb. 23rd - again between travel partners. The first true travel weekend will be Jan. 11th and 12th.
Also, the first game of the weekend will be played in the evenings... the second during the afternoon (unless it is on Saturday and a school gets permission to play at night as well).

- Travel Partners are as follows:
Catholic & Goucher
Juniata & Susquehanna
Scranton & Moravian
Merchant Marine & Drew

- Conference Championship Tournaments:
I believe this will only involve the top four teams with the first round being played on Wednesday, Feb. 27th at the higher seeds.
The championship game will be played on Saturday, March 1st - also at the higher seeds.
Unless it changes, this conference will have to withstand two years of Pool B - no automatic qualification - for two years.

I think that about covers it for now... let the posting... begin!
