Men's soccer / Re: The Big Dance
« on: Yesterday at 10:18:59 pm »
I was there live for the mens semi's, but i caught your final broadcast on the way home and re-watched the semi's as well, and you can tell that you two are practiced at and enjoy doing it. D3 Soccer is lucky to have committed, knowledgeable and informed commentators!  Btw, you alluded to the fact that you were "under a tent" for Calvin/Chicago, was that the midfield tent on the turf, or outside of the press box? And why - did somebody forget to unlock a door?

The tent was around midway down the right hand side at the top of the bleachers. The school (UNC-Greensboro) indicated to both the NCAA (committees/liaison) and the broadcast crew that "that is how it was last year." It wasn't how it was set-up last year.

Ira and I ... pulled rank? Not sure how to describe it, but we did our best for Game 1 (not sure how that broadcast didn't sound like crap ... oh right, the teams put on a show LOL) and then asked to get things changed. Our crew was amazing moving us inside to the press box, where we were last year, between Games 1 and 2 flawlessly. Really impressive.

Also, hat's off to the NCAA committees and liaisons who realized we were not trying to be "divas" or something and that set-up wasn't appropriate for any broadcast ... and making sure to help accomplish what was needed.

I personally think someone just mis-remembered the set-up ... or didn't think the idea through. You can't put broadcasters outside, even under a tent, with equipment and exposed to the elements especially for four games in one day.

It might be after we aired, but still worth promoting ... watch the show On Demand or listen to the podcast!



The first semester is coming to a close. With it comes an opportunity to look back and evaluate what we've seen throughout Division III basketball so far. Did we get any early Christmas gifts? Or did some teams get some coal?

This is also the time of the year one starts to look around to see if any teams are flying a little under the radar. Off to good starts that maybe haven't been noticed or a big win or two here and there have people scratching their heads.

Sunday on Hoopsville, we not only shined a light on some programs off the radar, but also start pondered the opening, nearly, six weeks of the season. Be sure to tune in as we take the new "Buy or Sell" up a few notches.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Sunday's episode is available to watch, in two parts, On Demand in the video player(s) above. You can also listen to the show, in it's entirety, via the audio-only podcast. You can find it here: http://bit.ly/2rFVWsQ

Guests Schedule (order subject to change):
- Charlie Mason, New England men's coach

Aiden Chang received a visit from all of his teammates late this morning.
And, Iím happy to report that he was released from the hospital to home care later this afternoon.
Too early for any further prognosis.

So within a few minutes of posting the seemingly happy above news, I get dinged twice.
There is just no explanation for some things.
Maybe these mindless a**holes are the ones who need the prayers. 🤯

You worry about your karma too much. :)

Remember, people could read something of yours from at any point or any place on these boards and + or - you. It didn't have to do anything with what your latest post was whatsoever.

General Division III issues / Re: Fundraising
« on: December 14, 2018, 04:06:52 pm »

It really varies a lot from school to school.  I wouldn't assume any d3 school would supply equipment beyond uniforms and maybe practice gear - that is something that might be a surprise to parents.  As for travel, usually special trips are fund-raised - either from wealthy donors or opportunities the coaches arrange for players.

With so many schools, I have no idea how much money is left up to players to come up with for these things - I imagine the totals vary widely.  Some schools travel often and it's part of the athletic budgets, others have alumni donors who foot the bill.  Some schools never travel anywhere.  I'm guessing every single experience is pretty unique.

To follow up on Ryan's point .. each school and conference is going to be different. International trips are limited to every three year and most schools fundraise for those. In-season tournaments can be anything from a budget item once a year to every two or three years to fundraising for each. It really varies across the board depending on the institution and athletic department.

I know of programs that run camps as a way to earn more money into their budgets so they can travel or have other perks. I know programs who have very wealthy donors who help out. I also know of programs that basically do next to nothing.

You are going to run the gambit with this stuff in DIII because of how athletic departments are budgeted at a wide-range of institutions. I am quite sure it becomes part of the recruiting decisions for parents and student-athletes. I wouldn't say your experience is unique ... I wouldn't say it is common, either.

It isn't the norm ... it isn't isolated. Really depends on the institution, department, program, and coach (some coaches are better at fundraising and alumni relations than others as well).

It is cracking me about the conversation about the crowds, especially at "Christian-based institutions" ... I would suggest those who don't like it not show up at Hope or Calvin especially for a Hope-Calvin game. :)

We've entered the part of the season when teams are either off the court for an extended period of time or they are still practicing and playing occasional games leading up to a break around Christmas. It is an odd time of the season. You look away one night and forget there is a big game happening. You try and focus in another night only to realize there isn't much to watch (if anything).

Some schools are still wrapping up finals as well!

These few weeks can also be challenging to teams. Staying fresh even though there could be up to a month between games. Staying focused, even though academics are a much higher priority that what's happening on the court. And staying healthy despite travel to different parts of the country or back home to be with family.

Thursday night on Hoopsville, Dave tries to work his way through the distractions to talk to a few teams all of which still have games this December and seem to be off to pretty good starts. We'll even hear from a student-athlete's perspective. How are finals, the holidays, and travel affecting these programs?

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Thursday's episode will air live starting at 7:00 pm ET right here: http://bit.ly/2rA87rl (and via Facebook Live simulcast).
