This is different but I think it fits here. On Reddit's Map Porn board is the picture of E.E. Cheeseman's 1938 Map of American Football. Several now D3 schools made it onto the map. http://i.imgur.com/wPrzKM2.jpg

So, we reported that error about the MASCAC to the NCAA a couple weeks ago and we have not heard back from them yet. In our reading of the Division III rules regarding AQs, the MASCAC does not qualify for one in football in 2014.
It does show SAA as AQ.
Errata: CWRU and CMU listed as a B not part of PAC.
It's a moot point, but does it make sense for CWRU to be North region when nine of its ten games are against South teams?
I heard the Pacific/Chicago game was cancelled?
They are planning on moving from club to D-3 over the next few years. Then the CCC is going to sponsor hockey and take the other CCC schools out of the ECAC Northeast with them. UNE probably won't follow though.If the conference says we're adding ice hockey as a conference sport (and they'd have an AQ to boot!), then your conference members don't really have a choice. Salem had the same dilemma when the MASCAC formed. They HAD to leave the ECAC-E per conference rules.

UW-Superior is leaving the WIAC for the UMAC in the '15-'16 academic year. I know everyone knows that, I never get a scoop, but it's not on the list.
Is this for sure, for sure now? I saw it was a possibility but hadn't seen it confirmed.
Didn't realize D-III softball went to a new format this year:
16 double-elimination regionals, and then 8 best-of-three super regionals to reach an 8-team World Series. I like it! Maybe for baseball too, someday?
My mind is blown how this can be done for D-3 softball but not baseball.
I've sat on this news for the past two or three weeks by request, but it's now gone public:
Carroll is rejoining the CCIW.
I first stuck this on the football page, but remembered Superior doesn't play FB. Anyone seen this news?I'd welcome Superior to the UMAC based on a competitive standpoint. They're obviously within the geographical footprint of the UMAC, but maybe there are logistical challenges from having an odd number of total teams and an odd number of teams along the big lake, making it hard to play them all in one trip.
UW-Superior moves to leave WIAC for Minnesota conference
Looks like a problem for the WIAC in baseball losing the AQ. Anyone remember why Eau Claire dropped baseball?
Here's a simple solution to the Staten Island controversy...the conference could award the NCAA bid to the regular season championship instead of the tournament championship.
There were two conferences (SAA and SCAC) that had tournament finals with no particular meaning. In the SAA, everyone knew Centre would get the Pool B bid no matter what Oglethorpe did. In the SCAC, Centenary wasn't eligible for the postseason, so no matter what happened in that final, Trinity was going. The games were still excellent.
I don't think there is a rule that the autobid has to go to the tournament winner, so you could still have the tournament, but Staten Island doesn't get hurt by their first bad game in three months.
IIRC, Geneva competed in the PrAC tournament before they were a full member.
Right in your own back yard. Trine competed in the 2005 and 2006 MIAA Tournaments as a provisional.
