Mid-Atlantic Region / Re: Landmark Conference
« on: Today at 04:04:41 pm »
It is a topic of conversation in the world I live in ... trust me, people throw around canceled a lot and it only breeds confusion. It happened earlier this month with Merchant Marine postponing game. But the best might have been last summer when working some minor league baseball games and the team announced the "game was canceled; it will be played tomorrow at 12pm."

Anyway... I just wanted to make sure because in other chat rooms when someone has said a game was canceled, it has started a question about whether it was really canceled or postponed and are they sure the conference would approve that, etc.

So I was just making sure ... not doing anything more than that.

moved up to 2pm. Women at 11...per release.

Women @ noon

Probably going to be cancelled at this point?

The timing I'm hearing for the general area is it ramps up in the late afternoon and evening? That's from what I know down here and what others in New York are telling me. Maybe they can still get the games in?

And to be clear ... they wouldn't cancel, they would postpone. It sounds like semantics, but it's a significant difference. :)

I think most who follow the story know about the wall.

I know less about the Merchant Marine Academy.  It would be interesting to know how many of their basketball players had any idea the Merchant Marine existed prior to being recruited.

From what I've gathered I think a lot know about the school. Many who end up at merchant academies in general are interested in shipping and such. Certainly, I am sure there are a fair number of recruits who get interested from the recruiting, but like a lot of service academies and I am sure there is a good mixture of those who know and those who find out.

BTW Merchant Marine is playing because after the 2013 shutdown, the DOT reassessed things and decided that during a regular calendar they teams at USMMA were except from being shut down. That said, during a break they can be affected - they did have to postpone one set of games in early January, but have been playing ever since.

Not that I want to wade into this, but you all might be surprised that the "wall" previous administrations invested in was more like "fencing." Yes, there are walls down there in some sections, but fencing is the biggest item.

Also, some of the land the wall should be built on is not US government property. Private land isn't going to just get handed over. That's something no one is talking about.

Anyway ... I feel bad for Coast Guard. Merchant Marine was in a tougher bind as technically they aren't allowed to be playing at all (that has happened in previous shutdowns). They are playing, so I am trying to determine what has changed. I probably should know the answer ... but it is escaping me right now.

Coast Guard is directly affected ... their SID, for example, is not allowed to be at work. That includes other administrators. Their AD (former yet?) told me the last time he was doing the laundry because no other admins were on site.

All this stuff about these schools academics and their programs is a mute point.

... I'm just going to leave this here.

You're right. We are definitely all better served by people sharing anecdotal stories about their and their friend's education backgrounds and incomes. How about we change the board to just NJAC Academics and then we can talk about all the great programs across all these NJAC schools? No one is saying it isn't important but the argument changed from debating how fair it is for kids to transfer to people talking about their rich buddies and touting their respective schools academic programs.

I think you missed the point that Ryan was trying to make that in Division III is about academics and their programs. And yeah ... in DIII, touting a school's academic program is kind of part of the conversation. It certainly is when recruits are on at least on campus.

Sorry if those who are proud of their accomplishments or their school's status is a bother.

As for the programs on the floor ... I'm always impressed with how many of these students athletes, including in the NJAC, are tremendous students first and foremost. I don't think any DIII school should be ashamed of themselves in the grand scheme of things.

The only people missing the point is you two. You both keep returning the how important academic programs are and I am not saying anything different. What I am saying is that transferring mid-season, regardless of whether or not its to enroll in a different program at a different school, should make a player ineligible for the rest of that year. If it is strictly about academics then this still allows the student-athlete to enter their desired program but prevents players from playing for two different teams during the same season. You both seem to be quoting reply's without actually reading them.

And what we have been telling you and you apparently haven't been reading is ... that isn't going to happen. There isn't any major concern about it across the division or in the NJAC. They don't see it as a problem and those in both the conference and the division don't want to limit students and their opportunities by putting a number of hurdles in their way. In DI (and DII, I believe) it makes sense because there are athletic scholarships in play. All at play in DIII is the bill a student has to pay to an institution. Thus ... only one or two conferences in totality have that limitation (transfer type limitations in general) in Division III. The NJAC doesn't feel it's a problem and is no where close to implementing it ... despite your opinions on it.

Pat while I have your attention:Maybe you can answer this since we are talking about elite programs what happened to Thomas More title stripping. ;D

You don't know how Thomas More lost their title (one of the two)? Seriously?

Hope you didn't decide to take a night off or two from games? You would have missed some important results. While Wednesdays and Saturdays tend to be the big "nights" of any week in Division III, games on any night could have major ramifications.

The algebra this time of year is both simple and complicated. Conference schedules, for the most part, have moved into the second half and teams seeing teams a second time sometimes have an advantage. Rivals, of course, have an advantage. There are also distractions as some teams have been sitting on mostly empty campuses for several weeks and may be bored. Or second semester classes are beginning and changes to schedules can be an abrupt adjustment. There are also long road trips that can take a team's focus. Plus, the weather. Yeah, Mother Nature loves changing things around.

All of it can lead to upsets or strange outcomes. From blowouts to close battles. On any night, you are bound to see something you will be chatting about the next day.

Thursday's show includes guests from a couple of the hottest teams in men's basketball: Capital and Swarthmore. We also hear from an island squad and find out if the Whitman women's upset of George Fox should have been a surprise. And Springfield's Naomi Graves chats about how the U.S. Marine Corps has helped her coach and preach diversity.
