Usually we try and relax in the offseason. We have always had ideas of doing an off-season podcast, but we usually end up being distracted by other things. This off-season we decided to go for it.

We did get some "down time" in between the end of the season through the end of May, but we are ready to get back into chatting about DIII - basketball especially.

And there is plenty to talk about starting with the "MIAC Decision" or #TomToss.

Dave McHugh is joined by Pat Coleman to discuss why (no, really, why?!) some of the MIAC presidents decided to "involuntarily" remove St. Thomas from the conference it helped found 99-years ago. We talk about the history, the flaws in the supposed arguments (though, no president has gone on record), and what options UST has moving forward. Dave also gives his thoughts on the topic.

Also hear from two coaches who made some unexpected job decisions this off-season. Dave chats with Sam Hargraves who left Alma for fellow-MIAA member Olivet despite his alma mater, Calvin, having a job opening. And Gordon Mann chats with Michael Coppolino who shifted coasts to take over the vaunted George Fox program - something that was even unusual for GFU.

Plus, a brief look at some of the other coaching decisions as the calendar turns towards summer.

From what I heard if you wait until August that doesnt give the other school alot of time to do a search for a Coach.So when you say by June 1st your expecting June 1st.When you have 200 applications and your down to top 4 candidates in a month that in itself is fast.So yes it is a discussion board and that is exactly what we are doing in a positive way!!!😁😁😁

The August comment was a joke about the last time Scranton went through this Trevor ended up being hired in late August (early September) ... just a joke. Nothing more.

And I'me having fun with you guys ... you all are so wrapped up in a decision that I am sure will be pretty solid. Remember, those doing the hiring hired Woodruff.

You trying to drive down site traffic?

Not sure how you think that ... you guys are coming here no matter what. If it isn't coach search convo it's recruiting discussions. :)

I thought you guys would know by now that you can't always take those kinds of things at face value! haha

I am sure the administration is working hard at it ... but I couldn't not tell you how many plans to "hire a coach," "complete an investigation," or "make a decision" have not hit a timeline in this world. :)

I mean ... they could close the search and try again in August, I guess. Too soon? ;)

Again, relax everyone.

SUNY Delhi is in the process of transitioning to the NAC, so they're essentially gone from the ACAA already.

Yeah ... I'm surprised Ryan mentioned Delhi, but with all the changes he may have forgotten ... Delhi is off to the NAC. There will be more to join them in the near future.

Side notes: ACAA isn't as strong as the numbers presented indicate. I believe their numbers are lower, but I have to check my sourcing on that.

And, I am hearing of a few more schools interested in coming to DIII. We obviously have to wait about six months for that to be official, but my count I know of three or four that could be in the pipeline in the next year or two - maybe more depending on some other factors (sometimes, they seem ready and are not or don't see ready and pull the trigger anyway).

It is funny to see all the Scranton fans restless for a hire ... we are in the infant stages of the process compared to the process it took to get Trevor hired. You guys ultimately seemed to think that was just fine. Relax LOL

d-mac

Thanks for the tip on the all-star game Saturday, even if there are no Mount Union players. Looking forward to your broadcast. You two do a great job. Go All-Stars! ⭐️ 🕦

Thanks, we enjoy doing the broadcasts and working together.

The games are available On-Demand, by the way.

FYI - the DIII women's lacrosse all-star game will take place Saturday at US Lacrosse Headquarters in Sparks, Maryland (literally around the corner from my house). DIII game is at 11:30 AM (IWLCA should have streaming info). DII and DI to follow.

There are a good crop of players including a good chunk from NESCAC schools (sorry, no Mount Union rep) and three of the four final four teams has at least one player. The two coaches are Tufts's and Wesleyan's coaches (not sure about assistants).

You might recognize the broadcast team: Monika and myself.

Now back to prep-work.
