I don't even know what I'm supposed to care about there. Who cares?

You can transfer in and participate in the spring. If you were eligible at your old school, you are eligible immediately at an NCAA Division III school you transfer to. (Some intraconference transfers have conference rules which apply.)

You folks must be on an extended "recent holiday vacation!" :)  No one has mentioned any reaction to Oberlin's HC Anderson leaving to return to DII Notre Dame College (and one of his assistants going with him there as well.)  Oberlin had some new assistant coaches this past year who joined in 2019.  Do you think they will keep it in house or go for someone outside the program?

Certainly, much change going on in numerous coaching staffs.  The former Notre Dame HC, who had them going far into the DII National Championship Playoffs the last two years (semifinals last year and quarterfinals this year) left to take over DII Lenoir-Ryne in North Carolina and he took 2-3 of his assistants with him.  NDC has done quite well after starting a program from scratch just a few years ago. LR had made the playoffs this year as well.  The LR HC was hired as HC at DI scholarship Mercer University in Georgia and took some of his assistants there (Mercer, which reinstated football back in 2011 after a  many decades absence) after being in the non-scholarship Pioneer League their first year, went full scholarship and play in the conference with The Citadel, Furman, etc. (they lost to NC this year), but fired their HC who had been there since the reinstatement of the program.  They get anywhere from 6,000-10,000+ to their home games.  Anyway, crazy moves in the "Coaching Carousel" all over in every division! I feel sorry for (in some sense) those coaches wives!  Moving every 2-3 years in some cases has to be tough.

Anyway, thought's on Oberlin?


Oberlin is in the North Coast -- you may have better luck there.

Does anybody have a hot take on the just approved D3 regional realignment plan? Football going to 6 regions?

Got a link?
This is actually just one step in the process. The NCAA championships committee will meet on this in February and the management council would then consider it, potentially in April.

Watching it back, it almost looks like the officials had predetermined that they were going to wave it off.  They are all almost instantly waving it off, with no hesitation/discussion whatsoever.   

So, let's say the league reviews this and says that it should have counted.  Is there any precedent for changing the result of the game?

There is not. Once the officials have left the floor, the game is official.

"Iron. glass, twine, on that sojourn to the line"

That would be a very D3 call -- maybe we can dig into the SAT words as well.

Sorry, Bob -- I didn't look closely to realize you were jumping in to respond to my response to HSCTiger's comment. When HSCTiger74 posted at 6:40 p.m. ET, we'd had the info on the site for quite some time.

Posters on the OAC board reporting that Dartt got the job.

I mean, news outlets doing it as well -- such as D3football.com. Check it out!
Not at 4:23 pm, when the first posting on the OAC board had it, they weren't.  I checked it out!

OK -- but at 6:40, when you made your post, we did have it, and had had it for about 2 hours. :)

If the UMAC schools with smaller budgets can manage to make 2 or more trips to/from Illinois and Missouri in a season, I think the MIAC can figure it out.  I can certainly understand wanting to schedule closer games if it's possible, but I don't think it's a budget breaker.

Agreed that bus travel from MN to Chicagoland shouldn't be considered a big barrier.

It's true the focus has been on St. Scholastica in talks around here but Northwestern has improved a bunch of outdoor facilities in the past five years and would be a decent add from that perspective. Plus, they have won NCAA postseason games in men's basketball and in volleyball (perhaps others, but those come to mind).

Agreed that dual hosting is a non-starter. Even though CNU and UW-Stevens Point and other schools could certainly pull it off, the appropriate D-III committees wouldn't want to give an advantage to the handful of schools which could effectively manage hosting two tournaments, while the other 400-plus would have to play by other hosting rules.
