I agree, I hate to see them take a step back, even though they beat OWU the last two years. Helps the conference out to have strong teams. I am curious to see who they hire.

Going Back to The Gators and the reasoning for Bottoming out. I have not taken much time looking at it but, it seems to me that this may not only be in Football. It looks like many of there programs seem to be on the decline. Baseball seems to still be competing. Am I wrong? If this is across athletic programs at Allegheny,  then I would have to agree with Rotag.
As far as the Gators being good helping the NCAC, that is true. But especially in Football, someone is always going to finish at the bottom. especially with round robin play. Is the conference better if there is some churn at the bottom and some of the bottom teams step up to mid tier or second tier teams, or is it better for the conference to always have the same teams on the bottom? As a NCAC fan I prefer some churn, as long as it shows teams are getting better as opposed to teams getting worse. (as long as it is not my team at the bottom ;))

Part of that is the conference schedule. With 2 DH's on the Weekend, there usually is not much pitching for the week day games. OWU did pretty well during the week by doing Pitcher by committee. The week end starters would combine for 3 or four innings a piece during the week.
Teams need to consistently win. We see it all the time. A school will be competitive for a year or two but then drops back. Kenyon takes a 2 week trip to Florida and plays practically all there out of conference games down there. They come back and only play on the weekend. Then if they get the the playoffs they do not have enough pitching. Oberlin used to do something similar but there OOC games were spread over a shorter period. Some of that is not coaching but a school philosophy.
Personally I would like to go back to round robin, as well but that will never happen.

Thanks, the NCAC has a Cross Over weekend. It is also part of the regular season, because some conference schools did not want to add games.

I know that in Baseball most of the NCAC teams have fall ball. Usually the first day of that Fall ball is open tryouts. Is this different in Basketball because it being a winter sport?

Is Sciac Pool play part of the regular season or is it considered part of the playoffs. If Pool play is part of the regular season then it counts towards the NCAA max. If not then it does not.
Some schools have creative ways to get around Coaches on the field. If the coach is employed by the school and part of his duties are field immanence or working in the Gym then they would most likely schedule there work duties to coincide with captains practices.
I am not claiming this happens in the SCIAC but can happen in any conference or school in D3.

I would also love to see Oberlin win the East.
In the West my feeling are clearly known.

Good to see them stepoing up. In the past after their Arizona trip, they usually only played  the weekend DH's against conference foes. It is goos to see them playing some mid week games.
Whilenthis is an improved schedule there are tougher schedules in D3.

Plus Webster has one of the neatest Mascots in Athletics. Gotta love the Gorlocks. It is a really quality program though.

I am waiting to see where OWU goes. Usually they head to the Snowbird. But two years ago they went to the Ripken complex in Myrtle Beach. There was talk that they would do an every other year. But I am not sure that they likes the Ripken experience as much as the snowbird.
There are a lot of "tournaments" in Florida during spring break. Which one is Bridgewater participating in? Russ Matt? Snowbird? Gene Cussic? I will not be going down as my son has graduated.
