Hobart Football T spotted at Kiawah Island Beach, SC confuses locals as same colors as Clemson ???
A variation of an old Southwest Conference (SWC) /Southeastern Conference (SEC) joke that happened when the Arkansas Razorbacks moved...

A football player could flunk out of Hobart and enroll at Clemson and raise the academic profiles of both schools.

I saw a guy with a Wheaton shirt at the Consolidated Gold Mine in Dahlonega, GA over the 4th of July.  He said he's a 2000 alum and was visiting family in the area.  He immediately noticed my UMHB cap and we struck up a lengthy conversation about football (including his dismay over their loss in the playoffs, which he was able to stomach a little easier when the Cru won the Stagg).  It's such a small world sometimes.

Been in St. Pete Beach, Pass a Grille, Terra Verde for 2 months, always on the lookout for ANYTHING D3, and continually failing... no, I don't hit too many bars, but a lot of Beach time, shopping at Sam's and Homegoods and various Marketplaces, and hitting a variety of restaurants... but darn NO D3...

FINALLY today, driving back to the condo from (gulp) church, with my wife.. spotted a licence plate holder (holding Florida plates) boldly advertising...

North Central!!!   Given it's Red lettering, I'd be assured it was the Cardinals of North Central (Illinois), not the Rams of North Central (Minn.)

Well it's a small world... only my second sighting of D3 in St. Pete, and it's a young lady wearing the t-shirt of my Alma Mater, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute!!!  A very talkative young lady, turns out her brother went to RPI, was a "computer nurde", and got a great job in NJ upon graduation 3 years ago... no, not an athlete!!

Out on the road today, I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac!

Sorry, I couldn't resist...  ;)

I like and enjoy reading these little updates, trivial as they may seem...
I don't see many stickers, etc., in La Crosse, but I noticed UW-Whitewater had several commercials airing today during the Milwaukee Brewers/Tampa Bay game, pitching their championship tradition in athletics...

I was down in San Antonio last week for a job interview.  The place I interviewed at is huge, so I kept my eyes peeled for any D3 references.  In the visitor's parking lot alone I saw 2 (!) different vehicles with the same exact Rhodes decal.  One had a license plate from here in TX, and the other from TN.

Guess they don't count anymore but I saw a car in Belton, Texas with a Mississippi College alumni license plate holder over a Texas plate.
