Title: Shirts, and stickers and decals oh my!
Post by: cawcdad on November 01, 2007, 05:28:34 pm
I know there was talk about this before but I couldn't find the thresd. Anyway, today was wear a college shirt day at my school. A young lady walked into my 6th perod with a Crown shirt on. Whoa, here in California.

How often do you see shirts or other signs of D-III schools in parts of the country no where near the school?

I remember seeing Willamette and PLU bumper stickers when I was in L.A. Saw a Rowan shirt in S.F.

I was in Cooperstown, New York this summer and saw a fellow wearing a UW-Whitewater shirt.  Talked to him for a bit - he was an alum, now living in Florida.

I used to have a Linfield license plate holder and was flagged down on several occassions (by people in other cars) who graduated from Linfield.  One was a very old gentlemen who had graduated in the 1930's ( I don't know how he even saw the license plate holder!).  Oh yeah, I'm in Southern California so I guess if you drive in traffic long enough you'll encounter somebody who has graduated from just about any school! :)

Working in NYC and living in North Jersey you get the same thing.  I have seen hats, shirts, bumper stickers etc from D-III schools from all over the country around here.

I know there was talk about this before but I couldn't find the thresd.

It was going on on the Around the Nation thread.

Same with the list of famous D3 alums, that's on there too but someday needs its own thread.

I've actually taken to wearing D3 shirts from different places when I'm not working or covering games ... so the day someone says "I saw a guy on a D.C.-bound plane with a McMurry shirt on," I'll know just how small a world it is.

Would it be possible for this site to do something like a d3sports.com store???  I know this site gets a percentage if someone links through here to buy books and things like that.  Could this site set up some type of space on here where you could buy merchandise from any of the D3 schools???  It might be mutually benefitial for both the schools and this site???  Maybe.

I've never been too big of a fan of wearing internet-purchased team/college clothing....it seems a little bit like cheating to me.  Wearing a Hardin Simmons or Cal Lutheran shirt that you purchased in Abilene or Thousand Oak is certainly better (more honorable even??) than wearing one that you bought through an online warehouse or Steve & Barry's type store.

If it puts money in the schools coffers whether you bought it at the school bookstore or online I wouldn't think it would matter.  And if this became an added revenue stream for these schools and for this website I wouldn't see what the problem is.

This has been a watershed summer for me seeing D3 car decals in the D.C. area. First off, I commute into D.C. now and often find myself stuck by the pentagon or somewhere.

Second, seeing a Johns Hopkins decal (or Bridgewater, CNU, even Gettysburg) doesn't exactly count, as they're all regional schools.

But I saw Sewanee on back-to-back days this week. I think I've spotted half the NESCAC in D.C., definitely Bates, Amherst and Wesleyan. Grinnell I think. Beloit I think. Just some real off the wall "really, here?" type of stuff.

I wish I remembered to post them as I see them, but anyway ...

Pep was wearing an AU football shirt while walking around the festivities at HarborFest in Oswego, New York over the weekend. As a result, Pep was approached by a couple of AU alums, who Pep chatted with for close to 20 minutes while standing some of the time in the rain! The gent had played golf (with Coach Yunevich as his mentor) and basketball at AU.

D3 t-shirts are very common among U of Michigan grad students.  I'm reasonably sure I've seen EVERY school from the UAA and NESCAC at one time or another, plus dozens of others.

In the parking lot at Lake Louise (Canadian Rockies) this summer I spotted auto stickers from Amherst, Williams, and a couple of others I've forgotten - plus (Pat and K-Mack? ;)) Catholic and RMC!

BTW, the Amherst and Williams vehicles were side-by-side.  Is it legal for them to travel together? :o  And if not, I wonder if they noticed (and if one vehicle had tires slashed before departure)? 8)

This is not a shot at you D.O.C., but your post reminded me of a question I always have when the subject of the settlers taking Native American land rears it's head. Are the same people who think that was an act of evil, the same people who now are for abolition, or loosening of national borders? It seems that way to me, but I haven't taken a poll. Like some great man once said, "Consistency is the hobgoblin of the logical mind." or something similar.

I started the thought so I own it.

I'm reminded often of the Robbie Robertson song of
THE BAND
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

Just take what you need and leave the rest
But they should never have taken the very best


If the best land were not taken I surmise we would see more native American gear around and not the downsizing of the last 30 years.

Yes, and we would not have seen the Comanche tribe adopt the Spanish horse about 1650 to become the "motorcycle gang" on the plains and terrorize tribes such as the agrarian Jumanos in south Texas, and run them from their lands.

I'm aware that Mount Union raises money by selling off old football jerseys with Larry Kehres autograph on them. Does your favorite school have any regular sale of out date uniforms? I like to buy them to hang in my classroom to brighten things up. Altholugh I'd prefer to stay with the D3 theme I started, I'm not picky about the sport. Let me know who to contact if you know.

SR,  When I played at PLU in the early 80's Frosty decided to get new uni's so he gave us players the option to buy our jerseys.  I bought two of the three we regularly wore that year.

SR,
Well now there's an idea.  While I'm not totally willing to give up my jerseys (I mean it's only been 24 years since I played).  I would send you one for a year, kinda like a loan to an art gallery. :)  You could display it for a year and then mail it back.  Now mind you it's not like I was an ALL-American or anything (but I was listed as a starter for the 1983 National Championship) and technically they are not D3 as we (Pacific Lutheran) were NAIA D2 when I played.  Let me know if you are interested.

p.s. speaking of half-shirts and the like.  I also have the t-shirt I wore under my pads for every practice and game for 4 years, it's a little thin  ;D

Saw a guy wearing an Oberlin sweatshirt in the 7-Eleven in Dallas yesterday.

AF4, you can understand how those of us who grew up in Texas west of I-35 came to love the horizon and the sky.  Traveling west of San Antonio, you can see the next ridge of hills 25 miles away.  I recommend a drive to Sul Ross State in Alpine sometime.  At night, there is very little "light pollution" so we can "millions" of stars.  In the spring and summer, the joy is watching the "thunderheads' build to 70,000 feet as the thunderstorms come in.  And year around, especially in winter, we get the beautiful sunsets!

I get claustrophobic in the pine forests of the southeast US.   :)

Ralph and AF4,

I understand both your feelings, but I dearly love both the 'Big Sky' of Montana (Manitoba, etc.) and the pine forests/lake country of Maine (Ontario, etc.).  They're both fantastic, just in different [understatement!] ways.

Sorry for the diversion - no new sightings to report. :P

while we were talking it dawned on he, my son, and i...i had coached him in youth league wrestling when he was 11 & 12 yrs old

we talked old times, he was one of our 2 Al state USAWrestling champs that came out of that club (the boy being the other)...again...a small world

Agree totally with your sentiments, but he specified a Korean man.  This would have to be an actual Afghani or Somali, not a GI!  Of course, even those might be immediate gifts.  How about Burundi or Estonia?  I've got it - first person with a Tonga or Easter Island sighting wins! ;D

I saw an Ohio Northern t-shirt at the Fiesta Bowl.  Unfortunately it was mine and I was wearing it to the pre-game Fiesta Bowl Party but in the first ten minutes I was at the stadium I was stopped three times.  The first person saw my shirt and said they were ONU class of 1993.  The second person was from ten minutes outside of town and knew all about ONU from his time living near the campus.  The third was an All-OAC center from Capital that played from 90-93 and was a captain of the Crusaders football team his senior year.  I know the game featured OSU but it was still a bit surprising to get such a reaction from my D-III gear so quickly.

Some more obscure stuff. In the 40s Western Reserve (one of the two predecessors of Case Western Reserve) sent at least two players to play in the NFL, one of whom was of All-Pro quality.

possibly...but BSC IS in b'ham...and UW Whitewater is ~50 miles away  from the milwaukee airport:P
but your point is well taken

i just note every time i see a D-3 school...as in that airport was a sea of Wisconsin  and packer and the ohio state clothes,  only 1 'u-dub-dub' and  1 Auburn pullover ( and i spoke to him at length)

i just enjoy posting them ::)

no problem at all...u r most likely correct, and i should probably not post all i see, as some of my sightings are tooo close to the schools

i am so use to seeing Auburn, alabama, UGA, TAMU..stuff, and anytime i am not on or accross the street from a D-3 campus and i see something  D-3, i am bad about noting it,

 unfortunatly for the folks wearing the d-3 shirt or hat, i am real bad about speaking to them.  :D  my bride is mortified by that behavior :o


I feel a kinship to all of D-3 schools and thier supporters, that probably exists  only in my warped mind. ???

if u see a near 6 ft, bald, beyond middle aged, fat guy with a Huntingdon ball cap walking near...it might b me...i mean no offense   ;D

I fully realize that I-85 runs near the Emory campus, but i was inside alabama on I-85, so this should count

a Green Toyota, 4x4, truck, mud grips, super suspension, sitting up high, with 2 tied down gas tanks in the bed, and the back opened, no bedliner...........and an 'Emory' sticker in the rear windshield

now this truck would have been happy with a 'UGA' or 'BAMA" or even a "Troy" or MTSU sticker....but i could tell the toyota was as perplexed as i was that it had to wear an 'Emory' sticker

the driver was pulling on a cigarette , late 20's early 30's, male...i waved, but didn't stop to speak

downtown convention center, columbus ohio

Young man wearing 'Capitol Football' (he was a big kid and former D lineman)

young man (but older and taller than the first) wearing a 'Wittenberg Athletics' (a former player, now a hard core iron pumper)

a young man (youngest but much larger than the other 2) wearing a purple letter jacket, with a big white 'M'... this one is a current player on the  O line for  mount union, i asked him where his national champ rings were,  and he laughed and said he had 2 at home and would like to get a third next year 

all were  very nice young people, and i believe genuinely happy to talk D-3 football

Did not get a chance to talk to them, they were busy trying to impress a group of young ladies LOL. ;)

Now that is a spring break, weather was good.

I hit the links and stunk up the golf courses but it was better than snow and cold back home. I could have used another week to help the game and the tan.
The plane flight in is not very long, "room and board" is a little steep  ;D

Finally, something out here in the desert SW.  I saw a Wabash shirt at the Apache Junction vs. Bradshaw Mountain high school football game.  I asked him if Wabash always fights.  He appeared surprised by the reference and I quickly explained myself.  Turns out he's the father of a backup QB and PP lurker that works to recruit potential future Little Giants.

I think he's going to go see them play next year when they come down to Gallaudet.

When I was the club house manager for the Lancaster Jethawks in 2006, I would make it a point to wear some sort of Linfield clothing where ever we went. I got a lot of compliments and even ran into a few alum. The strength coach for the Modesto Nuts was an alum and one of the umpires had a brother attending Linfield.

While I'm dying to joke about drunk Union "working girls" often throwing up at night coming home from work, it only serves to stoke my envy that Union actually enrolls girls--pickin's were mighty slim at RPI in the early '80s.

Going back and forth might be the best strategy.  I badgered someone on the MAC board last year, and he claimed that it's said either way.  Kind of like in Troy, you hear "Rents a LEAR" just as often as you hear "RENTS uh ler."

I really don't like it when my inner cynic has such good evidence to back up his arguments.

Climate--specifically a temperate one--is a matter of aesthetics, but it's not enough of a factor to get Pepperdine--in Malibu!!--on the top ten list?   But why does only California climate get you points?  Ever see the Middlebury campus in fall (http://farm1.static.flickr.com/107/268834700_a57b28f225.jpg) or in winter, after a snowstorm? (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/9e/Middlebury_College_-_Le_Chateau.jpg/800px-Middlebury_College_-_Le_Chateau.jpg) I'll bet anything its bluestone buildings look a lot better than Minnesota's Superblocks.

My inner cynic is highly skeptical that anything in either Cincinnati or Minneapolis can compare to the ugliest NESCAC campus (whichever one that might be).

She was rather well treated by God, upstairs ;), and one of her classmates went up to her and as he moved his head around from left to right, he said, "Car - L - Ton"  in a drawn out manner. I hope you get the drift. Sorry for that trip down memory lane  but.............

Yesterday I went to a Wisconsin State high school Championship game wearing my St John's cap, and saw a tween as I walked into the stadium wearing a St Thomas Tommies sweatshirt (he was too young to vent on) and kept my backside warm on my buddy's Augsburg blanket. A real MIAC night.

It becomes easier as you age! :(

I'm an IWU alum and CCIW partisan.  But having lived in Michigan for nearly forty years, I'm an MIAA fan (save only those times where CCIW loyalties override it).

You can feel free to cheer for Sewanee or Centre (your choice :D) with no guilt, whenever they are not facing Wabash!  And perhaps especially when they face DePauw - your call. ;D

I'd add that you could even cheer for IWU over Wabash in the football playoffs with no guilt, but I don't believe in rubbing it in! :o

Mr. Ypsi,

I have told many, and it's the truth, that frickin' freshman english best prepared me to graduate.

Almost ended up in Vietnam because of it. Hardest damn year of classes I ever took. And as an idiot, I always took the same instructor because I figured he saw how hard I tried. Silly moi. (that's sort of french. A language I took for 4 years and can speak/write/read fluently. It was english I had trouble with.)  :D

Back in Ohio for the holidays I saw at the Columbus Airport a College of Wooster (not so surprising) sticker in the rear window of the car we followed into the parking garage, a Kenyon College (also not so surprising) tshirt on a young boy in the terminal and a Pomona College (surprising) sweatshirt on a woman three rows in front of me on my flight back to Phoenix.

My dad said he past a woman in the grocery store (Lombard, IL) a couple of week ago, and she was wearing a Mount Union sweatshirt. He just happen to be wearing a Whitewater shirt under his coat.

He said he couldn't help but take his coat off when she walked by...I guess she got a kick out of it.

Last weekend for my trip to McMinnville, OR for the Linfield - UST game, I stayed with Linfield poster swede. His guest room is becoming a veritable museum of Linfield and D-III memoribilia. He has stuff from all of the NWC schools as well as St. Johns, Gustavus Adolphus, Hamline, & Concordia Moorhead of the MIAC. He has stuff from Wisconsin Whitewater, Beloit, Coe, Wartburg, Mount Union, Cal Lutheran and McMurry. This is just the stuff he has put out so far.

So Pep accompanied 30 Alfred University students (including Saxon football players Andrew Small, Milton Harding, Vinson Hendrix, Jerry Bond, etal) on a Spring Break Collegiate Challenge trip to Florida where in three days the crew built a house from concrete slab to finished roof.

En route, the bus, its second day on the road, made a stop for lunch off Exit 49 of I-95 near Darien, GA. Pep walks into the KFC/Taco Bell along with some others and hears a young man say, "Go Saxons!" Pep went over and met one Ryan Dona, an Ithaca Bomber who played for Welch 2002-2005, going 4-0 against Pep's Saxons. Dona, now a resident of Charlotte, NC, was taking his brother to Daytona Beach for Spring Break.

Pep has been to that Habitat for Humanity store in Charlotte...where they've got a neat little coffee shop tucked in the corner. In fact, Pep's Alfred University Habitatters spent a night at a church youth house in Charlotte as arranged by the manager of said store. Pep Jr., an AU grad, teaches 6th grade math at Eastway Middle School in the "inner city" of Charlotte. A good number of Alfredians are transplanted in the Charlotte area.

Pep will need to consult his Funk & Wagnalls to figure out what the heck Pep has done now!

"Alfredian" has long been used for "a resident of Alfred, New York"
"Habitatter" is what Pep calls his AU student members of the campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity

And, as a matter of fact, Pep plans to prepare potatoes for a coming Habitat for Humanity fund-raiser, a food booth accompanying a silent auction art show in conjunction with Alfred University's Annual Senior Art Shows May 8. Pep has already used the term "Habi taters" for said potatoes.

The coffee shop, or more specifically the used book area attched to it, was our reason for being there. My wife likes to buy books from them and then donate back when she finishes them. And if your son teaches at Eastway he deserves hazardous duty pay. It may not actually be inner city geographically, but the overall vibe of the school couldn't be any moreso. Bravo to him for trying to make a difference.

http://www.boston.com/ae/celebrity/more_names/blog/2010/05/where_am_i_the_crowd.html

She is clearly not a D3 fan, because she would have known the difference.  Wheaton College Illinois is in the CCIW, their baseball coach is Lee Driggers and they play football.  Wheaton Massachusetts doesn't play football and is in the NEWMAC.

What I would have loved to have seen was a panorama of the faculty and students when she mentioned those other Wheaton alumni before the Wheaton Mass audience.

Spotted at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio over the weekend:

Mount Union football tee-shirt, worn by a high school kid who had attended camp there. Waiting in line for the Top Thrill Dragster, I spotted the kid, a couple of lengths back in the queue line and said, "Hey, do you play for Kehres?" The kid replied in the negative, saying that he attended high school football camp there.
 Another guy in the queue line just one length back heard the conversation and piped up, "I played for Kehres." And so, Pep yielded his place in line so as to embark in a lengthy conversation with a tailback who had begun his football career at Akron, transferred to Mt. Union and, unable to afford the tuition there, went to Youngstown State where he was a walk-on until the entire coaching staff was fired.

Other colleges seen on shirts: Oswego State, SUNY Oneonta, Kenyon, plus some from places with which Pep is unfamiliar.... "O" and "M." Not sure where they were coming from.  ;)

Well...

It's also pretty common to have a shirt of the place/school you've visited.

I've seen all kinds of D III shirts in an area with a rival team, let alone a shirt in an area that doesn't have a team.


I live in Houston, Texas. The shirts I see out here - LAWD!

I was at breakfast this morning and saw a young woman wearing a SCAC shirt.  I stared at her as she walked across the room and saw all the schools listed on the back, but I don't know anything else about the shirt.

On the Prairie Home Companion show this weekend there was an audience dedication to Chris Kimball, the President of California Lutheran University.

Morehouse is no real surprise since it's in urban Atlanta, but the other two aren't ones you'd expect to see there. And as a proud grad I should point out that it's HampDEn-Sydney.

On the first we went to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, 'Salute to America' performance at Greenfield Village (about the sixth consecutive year we've gone).  No better way to spend the 'Fourth'!  Fantastic music, always culminating in Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, then Sousa marches throughout the fireworks.  This year's grand finale was the most incredible, but briefest, finale I can ever recall - about 60 firings in a 5 second period! :o

Last weekend for my trip to McMinnville, OR for the Linfield - UST game, I stayed with Linfield poster swede. His guest room is becoming a veritable museum of Linfield and D-III memoribilia. He has stuff from all of the NWC schools as well as St. Johns, Gustavus Adolphus, Hamline, & Concordia Moorhead of the MIAC. He has stuff from Wisconsin Whitewater, Beloit, Coe, Wartburg, Mount Union, Cal Lutheran and McMurry. This is just the stuff he has put out so far.

-- Saw a bunch of UMHB shirts on people on K Street a month or so ago. Thought they were Hardin-Simmons at first.
-- Grinnell in D.C.

I think a couple more that escape me at the moment. I always think of you guys and this thread whenever I see someone though.

Come on K-Mack, UMHB has been fully co-ed since the early 70's, and men have taken classes at UMHB for much longer as Campus Boys.  The campus Boys worked on campus and were allowed to take classes, but not graduate.  Heck, I went to UMHB in the 80's.

Here in Central CA the school where I teach had a speaker today for all 9th graders. His is an incredible story of essentially being abandoned and homeless at 14 with younger siblings. The gentlman's name is Roy Juarez, Jr. A little over a year ago he graduated from Hardin-Simmons. He is now on a speaking tour and touching kids. It was incredible watching them.

His assistant is a stout looking young man so I asked if he played ball for the Cowboys and he indeed did for a couple of years before injuries sidelined him. His name is James Alvarez.

They are traveling around the country in what they are calling "Homeless by Choice" If you get a chance to see and listen to Roy, by all means do so.

Light bulb factory closes; End of era for U.S. means more jobs overseas

WINCHESTER, VA. - The last major GE factory making ordinary incandescent light bulbs in the United States is closing this month, marking a small, sad exit for a product and company that can trace their roots to Thomas Alva Edison's innovations in the 1870s.

The remaining 200 workers at the plant here will lose their jobs.
...

Winchester VA is the home of Shenandoah University.

D3 fans who have been to LaGrange GA will recognize the stadium as the home of the LaGrange Panthers.

The stadium is less than 1/2 mile south of the LaGrange campus, down Forrest Avenue.

One of Pep's student workers at Herrick Library, who heads up the student group that runs Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF), meets with the trustees and was with the Alfred group at NASDAQ. Earlier in the week, he was on the floor at NYSE with a College of Business class. The kid works wonders with investments. Pep is thinking maybe he has a future on Wall Street.

Her jaw temporarily dropped, then laughing she said - "please, don't even say it..."  and opens her bush shirt to reveal a DePauw "T".  "Heh, heh - Wabash, m'am and your shirt is missing the common name of those birds that return to Capistrano."  ;D  Great evening of laughs and suspect she'll be back from "the Bush" to visit a few times during her research sabbatical - not many DIII types over here among the stuffed shirt, Ivy elites at the Embassy.

Yes, they do. It was a hot topic about 10 years when Tim McGraw wore this shirt (https://edisk.fandm.edu/occ/magazine/autumn01/au01_story2.html) for some publicity photos.

The clothing brand doesn't use an "and" in its name.

Actually, some of it does; some of it doesn't...it all depends what you're looking for in "fashion!"  See HERE (http://www.asos.com/Women/A-To-Z-Of-Brands/Franklin-Marshall/Cat/pgecategory.aspx?cid=6825&r=2)

The brand was established in 1999.  It's actually an Italian clothing company, not South Korean. They may have been sewn in SK at one time, but not anymore. Founders were Giuseppe Albarelli and Andrea Pensiero, not exactly your typical korean names!! ;)  They got the idea after finding an authentic F&M sweatshirt in a London second-hand market.  I've occasionally see 20-something girls wearing the brand here, but not all that often. It's much more popular in the UK.  Franklin & Marshall Clothing Company owns the brand name in all countries except the U.S.A. where the company is a licensee of the college name but is in no way affiliated with, or endorsed by, Franklin & Marshall College.  This is way more than you need to know, but I thought I had to set the record straight.

I've had a remarkable offseason in terms of seeing D3 represented in places. Mostly in the D.C. area I've seen Heidelberg and Muskingum, Beloit and Kenyon. Saw Ithaca twice -- on a little kid's shirt in Va. and on a grownup in Pa.

UAA and NESCAC are common in D.C., as is anything within a four-hour drive (Hopkins, CNU, Gettysburg). Just saw a Colby car sticker on the way in today.

I think my weirdest one this offseason was a DePauw Cheer backpack on a guy in D.C.

Nothing will beat the customized Browns Trusnik jersey though I don't think.

The D.C. area is always a gathering place of lawyers, lobbyist, etc. and therefore one finds many proud owners of college shirts around town.  Of course one also has many visitors and summer interns in town during the Summer.  One of my favorite t-shirts relates more to the town rather than the college......Amherst where the only the "h" is silent!.

Last week I saw a distinguished-looking older gentleman with an IWU 2010 Homecoming t-shirt and an IWU baseball cap at Bar Harbor, Portland, and New Gloucester, Maine.

Oh, wait, that was me. :D

(Since the family camp on Sabbathday Lake - down a few hundred yards from the last active Shaker community - has no indoor plumbing (I was ambivalent when cousins added electricity! ;)), 'distinguished-looking' may be a stretch.  Passers-by may have been surprised that I wasn't diving into dumpsters for returnables! :D)

Anyway, I'm back from God's country.  There I had a lake 20 feet from the camp, but it struggled to break 70; here it pushes 90 and I have no convenient lake! ::)

Last Saturday was my most unusual sighting:

A Trinity University (TX) seat cushion at the 14th Annual Jazz at Chautauqua jazz party in Chautauqua, NY.  When I asked the seat occupant about it, he said the front desk at the hotel loaned it to him.  So if any of you Trinity fans is missing a seat cushion, you know how to get it back. ::)

Doesn't count until a poster reports a sighting - perhaps a Linfield flag on his yurt?! ;D

THEN we can debate the relative extremities of Botswana and Mongolia! :P

For the present, I'd say that Botswana blows my side-by-side Amherst and Williams stickers at Lake Louise (see p. 2) totally out of the water!

Perhaps the unbeatable sightings would be any d3 school spotted in North Korea, or an old Wheaton Crusaders t-shirt in Mecca!  I won't hold my breath waiting for those! ;D

Assuming you are talking about today's Prairie Home Companion (I only caught a small portion of it), it was broadcast AT St. Olaf's!

It was the show you referenced.  I wouldn't have mentioned it except for the football spoof with a donor trying to endow some Viking players for St. Olaf.
He has retired before and came back.  Maybe he will do specials.

Saw a guy trick or treating with his kids with a St. Thomas hat on. Seeing UST stuff around the Milwaukee area is becoming more and more common. He said he played basketball for the Tommies a few years back.

Makes sense, the Elmhurst/UW-W thing since the Warhawks, as you know, recruit IL pretty hard.

Oh yea...the local Elmhurst high school (York) seems to be a common recruiting ground for UWW.

The Rev wonders if F&M realizes all their stuff is being knocked off without any licensing fees paid?

Yes, they do. It was a hot topic about 10 years when Tim McGraw wore this shirt (https://edisk.fandm.edu/occ/magazine/autumn01/au01_story2.html) for some publicity photos.

The clothing brand doesn't use an "and" in its name.



Actually, some of it does; some of it doesn't...it all depends what you're looking for in "fashion!"  See HERE (http://www.asos.com/Women/A-To-Z-Of-Brands/Franklin-Marshall/Cat/pgecategory.aspx?cid=6825&r=2)

The brand was established in 1999.  It's actually an Italian clothing company, not South Korean. They may have been sewn in SK at one time, but not anymore. Founders were Giuseppe Albarelli and Andrea Pensiero, not exactly your typical korean names!! ;)  They got the idea after finding an authentic F&M sweatshirt in a London second-hand market.  I've occasionally see 20-something girls wearing the brand here, but not all that often. It's much more popular in the UK.  Franklin & Marshall Clothing Company owns the brand name in all countries except the U.S.A. where the company is a licensee of the college name but is in no way affiliated with, or endorsed by, Franklin & Marshall College.  This is way more than you need to know, but I thought I had to set the record straight.

Interesting background. I've never seen this brand anywhere except Korea, so I thought a Mr. Kim in some alley in Itaewon got a sweatshirt from some young lieutenant years ago and started making knockoffs.

But if it's a popular brand in Europe, it doesn't surprise me that it's popular here in Korea, too. Koreans are berry current with fashion.

Saw something this afternoon that I thought was very cool. I went a local high school's play outside of Milwaukee. And in the foyer area they had flags/pennants of each college/university that all the 2013 seniors plans on attending. Let me say DIII was well represented.

Apart from the numerous DIII Wisconsin schools I saw, here's some other DIII pennants from other parts of the country:

Benedictine
Juniata
St. Thomas
Augustana (the correct one)
Washington U.

Not exactly a shirt or sticker, but I had a follow-up appointment today after a recent procedure and the nurse practitioner I spoke to was a St. John Fisher grad. I neglected to ask her how she ended up in Charlotte, but maybe at the next appointment I can remember to do so.

I was dining with family in the Luby's Cafeteria in far north Dallas. I introduced myself and spoke with a very pleasant gentleman who was wearing an orange & black "OXY" baseball cap.  He said most people do not know what the cap means.

Of course, I invited him to join us.  I hope he will.

The other was to identify the college that merged with Leonard Case's school. "Houston" was incorrectly answered (questioned?) for the first. And a contestant was mislead by the shortened form Case Western and responded "Western University."

at 1:34 in the 2nd quarter of the LSU/Florida game, a camera pans in the stands and lands on a dude with a UMHB tee shirt in huge letters....

He probably couldn't get tickets so he went to the LSU-Florida game as a fallback...:)

This doesn't really fit this thread, but nevertheless a random DIII moment occurred when I wasn't expecting it. I met my wife for lunch at a local Buffalo Wild Wings outside of Milwaukee today. And of all the sports stations and TVs they have at their disposal, they were displaying the replay of the Linfield/St. Thomas semifinal game from last week in the bar. Not only that, it was being displayed on the largest flat screen they had. Usually that TV is reserved for the big games or local games...anything but a D3 semifinal replay! I got a kick out of the patrons looking up at the screen with the "what the hell is this" look on their face.

I would have even found it odd if they were re-airing a previous UWW game (at least that's kind of local being that it's instate)....let alone a replay of D3 football game that had little to no interest to anyone miles from where I was.

That had to have been the first time where I've seen a D3 sporting event - of any kind - being aired in a bar, when I wasn't expecting it. And it was a replay...not even live! I just found that fascinating.

(Then again if they were re-airing the other semifinal game instead, I would have turned to my wife and said "We're eating someplace else" before sitting down)  ;)  :'(

ESPNU replayed the game (I think they also replayed your game at some point). Likely the bar just had on ESPNU and paid no attention other than OH FOOTBALL

Hang on to it, Ralph!  I'm still a 'Huron', since the Hurons themselves wanted EMU to retain the name (despite the activists who were probably descended from enemies of the Hurons, or more commonly were whites feeling guilt, like my office mate ::)).

'Indians' is more a toss-up (though I recall you saying the local nations were all for it), but when the designation is tribal-specific, I would think they would have say-so.  My office-mate and the EMU President (who was shortly the ex-President, though not for that reason) did not agree.  The fact that the Huron (and Wyandotte - the Canadian affiliated tribe) both lobbied for the name to remain Hurons had no effect.  While I think opposition to 'Political Correctness' is usually a code for 'let us abuse niggers, wetbacks, camel jockeys, etc.', there are times where PC DOES go too far.

Trying not to get political, I would say that Mr Ypsi's perception is one of the reasons we have such division. To make a statement like that means you would rather demonize those with whom you disagree, rather than understand their actual thought process. Maybe if you believed that others were wrong, and not have evil intentions, we could come to some sort of understanding. Once you question others motives, you are basically cutting off all communication.

Mr. Ypsi, you know that everyone who plays football in TX is a stud.  ;)   There's good football here, there's not-so-good football here; it's not one of the hot spots like the D/FW or Houston areas but it's fertile ground for recruiting nonetheless.   Round Rock is one of the 'burbs just north of Austin.

So Pep  is planning in mid-July to take a solo cross-country three-week trip from Saxonville to the west coast and back with the itinerary including stops in:
Bicknell, IN
Lawrence, KS
Tulsa, OK
Austin, TX
Roswell, NM (Carlsbad Caverns)
Phoenix, AZ
L.A.
Yosemite National Park
Pendleton, OR
Bozeman, MT
Mount Rushmore, SD
St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN
Lac du Flambeau, WI
and back to Alfred, hopefully within three weeks!!!

The trip will serve as somewhat of a re-enactment (albeit a very different itinerary) of a family cross-country campiing trip Pep took back in 1966 that lasted three weeks and was such a memorable experience that Pep's siblings still talk fondly of our travels. Pep has purchased a number of accessories in order to turn his PT Cruiser into an RV or a one-man mini-house on wheels and is looking to set up camp when he's not staying with friends.

Pep enjoys visiting D3 stadiums...given Pep's tentative itinerary, are there any D3 venues that are "must see"?

Meantime, Pep will try to document all the D3 shirts, stickers and decals he encounters in his travels....

ETA - Just checked and UMHB does have one but it's kind of plain looking. They have them for Auburn and U of Alabama and many other non-Texas schools. There are also some High School plates, crazy.

In Auburn today, a car with personalized Texas A&M plates, CRU 12. Was it a '12 grad of TA&M whose initials happen to be CRU or a '12 UMHB grad who is a TA&M fan? Does Texas have UMHB plates?


ETA - Just checked and UMHB does have one but it's kind of plain looking. They have them for Auburn and U of Alabama and many other non-Texas schools. There are also some High School plates, crazy.

Us Texans feel the need to show off our school pride as much as humanly possible haha. I say that as the proud owner of UMHB plates that say THECRU. Not sure how other states do things like this but one cool thing is a good chunk of the money to get the specialty plates goes to a charity usually connected to the school or group.

Unfortunately, Virginia doesn't have Maryville plates, so I "made" my own: "Dont Tread On Me" (Gadsden flag) tag with MURVUL. People get the hint when they notice the Maryville College Alumni sticker in the back glass...

Pep enjoys visiting D3 stadiums...given Pep's tentative itinerary, are there any D3 venues that are "must see"?


Well, if you're travels take you near/through the Twin Cities then there are a number of facilities worth visiting and if you take a tour of them it's even better.

If you're traveling to/from South Dakota then you can stop in the Mankato/St. Peter area (on Hwy 169) and see two very nice facilities
1) Blakeslee Stadium - Minnesota State University Mankato.  Ok so it's D2 but the field of this stadium is the nicest natural grass field in the USA.  There are no weeds and the grass is packed so tight that you need to use TPU cleats and not detachable cleats on this surface.  It is perfect - better than any field turf or mondo field in existance.
2)Gustavus Stadium - Lloyd Hollingsworth Field.  Just up 169 from Mankato is St. Peter, MN and Gustavus Adolphus College.  This is a very nice, new, D3 stadium.  Decent sky boxes, great seats, and a very nice field.  My son looks forward to playing for the Gusties this fall on this field.  From Mankato to Minneapolis this is on the way so might as well stop in.

If you're traveling to/from North Dakota on 94 then you need to visit Collegeville
3) Clemens Stadium - St. John's University.  This natural bowl and former cranberry bog has turned into a fantastic place to watch football.  Also some of the nicest people I've met have been at St. John's  I was there to watch the Tommy/Johnnie game last year.  What a zoo when you have 17000 fans at a D3 game.

If you happen to be about 30 miles south of Minneapolis/St. Paul on I35 then drop by Northfield to see
4) St. Olaf College - they are getting a new field (mondo surface) so no more grass.  The stadium itself isn't special but the football building on the west side of the end zone is.  This fairly small building is all football.  Locker room, Football office, player lounge, meeting rooms, weight rooms - it's all football.  My son loved his recruiting visit to St. Olaf and was impressed with this facility - what a great place to play football.
5) Carleton College -  Laird Stadium.  I use to hang out in this stadium as a kid.  It use to hold a 220yrd indoor track, handball courts, sauna, and a weight lifting cage.  Us townies would sneak in and train in the weight room and on the track since our Jr High and High School didn't have weight facilities at the time.  After a flood a few years ago they remodeled the inside of the stadium and it's now a very nice football facilities (offices, weight room, etc).  A few vestiges of the old indoor track remain.  As for the stadium, when first developed there was talk of Carleton being a part of the Big 10 and so the stadium was designed and built along the lines of the horseshoe at Ohio State.  The property was designed to hold a horseshoe but they only built one part of it which is the stadium you see now.  Quite large for D3.

If you're in Minneapolis/St. Paul you can see a number of great stadiums, all different, and all most all of them are very close to each other.  You can see all of them in an afternoon.
6) University of Minnesota - TCF Bank Stadium.  Ok, so it's D1, it's real nice and if you can take a tour the locker room is wonderful.  It's worth seeing though.
7)  Edor Nelson Field - Augsburg College Stadium.  Just south of the University of Minnesota is D3 Augsburg.  They get high marks for finding a way of converting a parking lot into a football field where one side is adjacent to a busy freeway.  They also manage to put a dome over it for the winter.  where else can you miss kick and have a ball end up in a freeway.  Small, cramped, but lot's of fun, decent facilities and a great place to tailgate (city park next door to field).
8) Seafoam Stadium - Concordia University, St. Paul.  Ok, Ok, you're on your way to St. Thomas from Augburg so you might as well swing past Concordia and pay homage to your boat's fuel additive.  D2 facility, field turf, has a dome in the winter.  Not a bad facility.
9) Klas Field - Hamline University.  My son played an 8th grade title game on this field.  Attractive Stadium, decent turf.  My son use to train winter baseball in the field house - very nice facilities.  The basketball facility is very old school and wonderful.  Great Track and Field facilities and coaching.
10) Macalester Stadium.  The new Leonard Center is really the Jewel at Macalester and a major upgrade to their facilities.  The stadium is decent, very open, good seating, but bring your own refillable water bottle as they've gone green and don't sell throw away water bottles.  There are dorm rooms in the stadium - interesting.  My son was heavily recruited to play here and really like the coaches, players, facilities, and program.  Pretty campus.
11) O'Shaughnessy Stadium - University of St. Thomas. Nice old stadium with very modern facilities built up around it.  Great place to watch football (been to many HS football games there).  If you stop by see if you can take a tour of the facilities in the Anderson Athletic and Recreation Complex.  Great weight room - great football S&C coach.  A locker room that puts many D1-FBS power 5 conference locker rooms to shame.  Not quite as opulent as the Gophers but getting close (lots of big screen TV's and game controllers).  When they were building the Anderson Student Center, just south of the stadium, the administration had it moved 40 feet to the east so the windows on the upper floor function room would a line dead center with the football field.  When they're playing in bad weather, parents of the players and VIP's can move into the student center to view the game and stay dry.  Got to love St. Thomas athletics!

So Pep  is planning in mid-July to take a solo cross-country three-week trip from Saxonville to the west coast and back with the itinerary including stops in:
Bicknell, IN
Pep has purchased a number of accessories in order to turn his PT Cruiser into an RV or a one-man mini-house on wheels and is looking to set up camp when he's not staying with friends.

Pep enjoys visiting D3 stadiums...given Pep's tentative itinerary, are there any D3 venues that are "must see"?

Meantime, Pep will try to document all the D3 shirts, stickers and decals he encounters in his travels....

Perhaps Pep should add some wood grain siding and repaint his plum PT Cruiser to a lime green....and go to Walley World!

and back to Alfred, hopefully within three weeks!!!

The trip will serve as somewhat of a re-enactment (albeit a very different itinerary) of a family cross-country campiing trip Pep took back in 1966 that lasted three weeks and was such a memorable experience that Pep's siblings still talk fondly of our travels. Pep has purchased a number of accessories in order to turn his PT Cruiser into an RV or a one-man mini-house on wheels and is looking to set up camp when he's not staying with friends.

So my wife and I were visiting old D3 friends in Des Moines this past weekend... Huge outdoor art fair on Friday night, Huge farmers market on Saturday... I people watched my way thru 1000's of people, all the while looking for a D3 shirt... I figured I was in the heart of Iowa Athletic Conference territory, and amidst some of the Midwest Conf schools, even kind of close to the SLIAC's Iowa Wesleyan....WOE IS ME... NOT A SINGLE D3 jersey spotted... the closest thing to D3 I saw was a Waldorf University shirt.. No Simpson, Central, Loras or the rest... What a Disappointment... (though I was reminded of old home days when I spotted a South Haven, Michigan tshirt....)   :(

The Saxons are on the verge of capturing the national championship, currently leading the Vixens of Sweet Briar College by a 58% to 42% margin with voting to wrap up tomorrow morning.

I spent 8 days at the USA Track & Field Olympic trials at the University of Oregon. I was surprised at the number of d3 shirts I saw. There were a number from area schools, but I also saw De Pauw Lacrosse, Occidental T&F, Cal Lutheran, Salisbury, Tufts t&f, Hampden-Sydney, Roanoke College, North Central t&f, Delaware Valley, Wartburg, Catholic, Oberlin, Carleton, and talk to the assistant track coach from St. Joseph's College-Maine. He was sporting his shirt and found out he is a Wittenberg alum. I also saw an MIT alum license plate frame as I drove down I-84 in the Columbia river Gorge.

Pep, while waiting for the gates to open at Chase Stadium in Phoenix for a Diamondbacks-Nationals game Aug. 1, spotted a "Wabash College" shirt. Pep asked the young man wearing the shirt whether he was a student there.

"No, but I'll be starting there this fall," the young man replied.

"So are you from Indiana?"

"Yes, I live in Muncie."

"Ahhh yes, it was Muncie Central that lost to Milan's Indians in the 1954 Indiana State Basketball Championship...you know, the real story behind the Hoosiers movie," I offered.

"I know all about that!" the kid replied, "My grandfather played for Muncie in that game! He's sitting right over there."

Hearing that, I rushed over to the gentleman and told him I was pleased to meet one of the players from that famous basketball game and that I have in my possession a collector's DVD set that includes video of the actual game.

"I've got that DVD as well," he said.

Hoosier neighbor? All of them are neighbors.

The Alfred Sun has a good number of subscribers in Texas, including one in Tyler. A former Alfred University administrator who took a job at Southwestern and who has since retired lives in Georgetown. Also in Georgetown is a long-retired Alfred Prof.

Pep wouldn't mind visiting in Texas (again) in a few weeks. If the Saxons can get through this Saturday, I'll be one week closer. Funny that Pep visited the Cru stadium a few months ago, long before there was any hint that the Saxons would pull off a perfect 10-0 season in the rugged Empire 8!

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

I've lived in the South for so long I forget that all those NJ kids scatter to liberal arts schools.

"Titan" decal on the back of a Ford in Longmont CO. There was no other information to confirm that the image was an IWU Titan, but it looked identical to what I assume is a copyrighted mascot.

Wasn't me!  I don't know for sure that the logo is copyrighted (I'd assume it is), but wouldn't put it past those Oshkosh varmints to steal the logo anyway! :o ;D

Just kidding Oshkosh.  But GO NCC, whup Oshkosh!  (CCIW > WIAC.)

Craziest thing I saw (wife needs to share me the pictures)... while driving the Baltimore Beltway (I-695) on a Friday afternoon... a bus that had a livery completely decked out in Thiel stuff. I assume it was a Thiel bus. Gave me a great opportunity, while trying to figure out what they were doing in that location, to give my wife an idea of how you say that school's name. :)

Sorry, I'm only a sporadic listener, and obviously missed those shows.  To the best of my knowledge, IWU has never played "Teal", so had to go by sight and guesswork.  After a whole career at a school with a high proportion of foreign students, I pride myself on pretty good guesses on pronunciations, but it is less than infallible. :P

Sorry, Dave.  I really respect what you do, but aside from live sporting events (and SOME NPR shows), non-musical radio tends to work better than Sominex on me! :-[ 

That I EVER listen to Hoopsville is a tribute to your broadcast, but don't push for miracles! ;)

Well in that case I promise to do two things:

- Play more music, if not the entire broadcast
- Help you go to sleep :)

That said... I don't listen to much talk show based stuff either. It's my dirty little secret.

Oops.

this last page got me looking at the D3Hoops standings page to see if I could pronounce every name...there are some interesting ones out there in Division III for sure, I think I can say all the New York/New England/New Jersey, most of the Mid-Atlantic, but I got stuck on ones like Redlands and Northland, do you hit that A or is it like Maryland...nothing sounded right when I tried to say Gustavus Adolphus, Fontbonne or Averett.

That should be the next feature to be added to team pages. A little audio button like on wikipedia where you can hear a clip of the pronunciation.

You are overthinking it... and mispronouncing Maryland :) Though, your hard A works for Averett, but there is a hard a in Gustavus, but NOT in Adolphus. :)

Easier said than done... tried this project for years just as a behind the scenes thing ... takes a lot to put it all together. It's been a brain child of mine for quite some time.
