General football / D3 Football Map
« on: September 12, 2019, 03:45:07 am »

I was hoping to finish this before the season started but didn't make it. This is a map of every D3 football team. Each of the 4 regions has a different symbol, each conference a different color.
If you select a team, you'll get a link to their d3football page, athletic website, street view of the stadium (if available), and a street view of the campus. Street view is at the mercy of google so not every school is equal there.

A few things I noticed while doing this:
1) More schools than I expected play off campus. Some still walking distance away, some are miles away.
2) Lots of cemeteries either next to or across the street.
3) The size difference of campuses. Just knowing that some schools are well into the thousands while others are in the hundreds of students doesn't really sink in until seeing it. There's major universities that look like they'd rival D1 schools, and there's schools that if you didn't know where to look you'd never know it existed.

The map isn't perfect, I'd love to be able to choose individual conferences or schools to show but that wasn't an option. I only had 10 groups I could make so I split each region up and tried to minimize the overlap so if you only have one group selected you can easily see the geographic footprint of each conference.

Pick-ems, fantasy leagues, etc. / OFFSEASON: Mega Draft
« on: February 16, 2018, 08:40:04 am »
Do you think drafting players is the most fun part of a fantasy league?
Do you wish there was something to do during the long D3 drought that is summer?
Do you wish you didn't have to deal with pesky roster decisions during the season?
Do you wish there was a game not run by Greek? ;D

If you answered yes to any of those then this is the game for you.  8-)

A draft that runs from mid-April all the way until November. No round limit. If the draft only goes 60 rounds? That's fine. If the draft goes 200 rounds? That's fine too.
Standard scoring rules. 3PM + Reb + Ast + Stl + Blk + Pts - TO - FT Missed
Once the draft is complete there's nothing more you need to do. No add/drops/trades. No selecting a specific game each week or a certain number of games. All D3 games count.

Should you be going on vacation for a week be sure to say so and leave some names. It's a looooong draft, it's fine if there's some slow stretches. But if you've disappeared for more than 4 days without a word then your turn will be skipped (it's fine if you've said you'll be gone but your list of provided names runs out, we'll wait a bit longer for you)

Any thoughts/questions/tweaks?

Lacrosse, track, cross country, softball / Division III Bowling
« on: November 04, 2012, 01:41:16 am »
Bowling is near and dear to my heart so I thought I'd get a thread going on it. Going to try to make a list of all D3 schools that have bowling because there is only a single division for the sport.

I find it strange that women's bowling is NCAA sponsored (since 2004) but men's isn't when there's just as many if not more men's teams.
