No athletic scholarships, and athletes are supposed to receive the same amount of aid as non-athletes at the D3 level.  Yet a school can admit athletes that don't meet the academic standard of non-athlete students?  That seems to go a bit against the D3 philosophy.

More than likely the schools don't frame it exactly this way, even if the Slate artice did. Because, you're right, they would be violating NCAA Division III rules. It's more likely done as a special skills or leadership allowance which is granted to a large number of students in a variety of areas. If it was specifically listed as a athletics exception and available ony to potential student-athletes, it would be in violation.
Not sure leadership is allowed.mich anymore. I heard when my son was being recruited and shortly afterward, of several schools getting into trouble, due to offering leadership scholarships.  A disproportionate number was going to athletes, at those schools. I will try to find the article and post it later if I can find it.

General Division III issues / Re: Compelling reasons to move from D3 to D2?
« on: December 19, 2017, 03:13:03 pm »

Maybe close to a decade ago now, Northwest Nazarene left NAIA for the NCAA - they chose D2, even though they had an offer from the NWC (a conference full of very similar schools) to enter without having to add football.  Now, they're realizing the finances don't make sense, but the NWC offer doesn't exist anymore and they have no other choices.

Honestly, geography is about the only reason I could see choosing d2 over d3 - if you don't have schools nearby to play or a conference to join, it makes sense.  Otherwise, why?

Counterpoint - many of NNU's programs are competitive.

True, although it took a decade to get there - and a lot of money.
...which was implicit in the move from NAIA (or D3) to D2.

Part of the sales pitch that is given by consultants in the move from D3 to D2 is that the school will get a "better" quality of student.

You gotta spend money to make money!
I would ask the consultants to define better. I would find it hard to believe that better involves students academic chops.

Another example of how the Top 25 rankings can be misleading. Wittenberg is not ranked (yet), but most likely would be 1 or 2 in the regional rankings currently. Regardless, some tough matchups for Witt coming up with a home date vs Marietta an excellent test in the holiday tournament in a few weeks.
Witt is just outside the top 25. With Marietta listed, and if they win that game, they will easily get in.

Ohio Wesleyan schedule is out.

Usual suspects, but first year of round robin play. Spring has not been released yet and other changes may happen between now and the season start.

+1 to the Conference and Coaches.

With the new field lines, looks like there won't be much foul territory. It looks like it will be nice.
