It might be more fair to call it "the Arseneault System," as I have from time to time on the boards, to give due credit to its now-retired inventor. I wouldn't be surprised if George Barber is currently the System's most high-profile exponent, though -- especially since Scott Van Pelt has been turning Barber's Panthers into a media darling on SportsCenter.

You're probably right, Greg.

Finally after many years, have joined the D3 board.....   Totally agree with everything Scots13 said.  Schram has been a terrible AD and don't know why she's still around as just the volleyball coach.  Need to let her go completely.  Hard to find any alum that wants her to stay at MC....   Any word on any candidates yet???

I hope all you Mount Union fans who have enjoyed DIII.com over the years will sign up for one of the tiers.  I signed up today.  I challenge the other conferences and teams to match Mount Union membership. C'mon guys and gals let's put the Purple Raider machine behind Pat and the staff! Tell your purple pals!

Kudos to you FDF for keeping these lists going.

I'm guessing (yes?) that this means there are a bunch of disappointed Hope recruits, who had let friends know they were coming to Hope hoping to play BB . . . but perhaps, for a few of these, their ambitions can get a fresh start next year?

I hope everyone will respond to Pat Coleman's request for support.  Anything will help, and they deserve it.  In fact, it's essential.

Saw a story about how an Alabama HS team scored 10 points in the final 18 seconds to win the state title and my mind immediately went back to 2018 when UMHB almost lost a 10 point lead with 2 minutes left to St. Johns.

Up 21-11 with less than 2 minutes UMHB attempts to punt from their own 14 only to have it blocked. St. Johns scores on the next play to make it 21-18 and then recovers the onside kick. Big first down pass and the Johnnies are already in field goal range but they go for the end zone on the next play, ball hits the receiver in the hands but he can't handle it and Jefferson Fritz snags it out of the air.

You can see how close we were to most likely losing a great game in the 3rd round a video done by St. Johns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sL5byP0ylW8

Thanks RFB..

So they are going to diversify other sports? the easiest sport to do it in would be football but we are dropping that one. Watch their endowment slowly recede.

Greg, I'll leave "getting out more" to you.  Does anyone really care about what Greenville is doing or has done over the past few years?  Or even Grinnell for that matter.

Wishing all here on the Board a happy holiday season, upcoming.  Do take care and stay safe and well.  The virus is raging pretty much everywhere.  So "getting out more," is not exactly a wise course of action just now, especially for someone of my age and girth.

Considering their first season using the "System" they surprised Illinois Wesleyan - leading to one of the more enjoyable conversations with Ron Rose I've had on Hoopsville ... I'm a little surprised those who follow CCIW don't know Greenville plays this way.

I'm not so sure that "those who follow CCIW" merits a plural, D-Mac. I won't say anything definitive, because I can't prove it, but I suspect that we're only talking about one specific person who avidly follows a CCIW team and actively peruses this board.

Considering that Greenville has played nine games against seven different CCIW programs over the course of that five-year period -- including the grand unveiling against Illinois Wesleyan in 2015-16 and the narrow loss to ninth-ranked Augustana in the opening round of the 2017-18 D3 tourney that you mentioned -- I just doubt that anybody else who frequents this room was unaware that Greenville uses the Grinnell system.

As an aside, I think after this semester, it is time to drop Grinnell from the description of the System.  I know they wrote the book, but who reads books anymore?  If anyone gets invited for a podcast to discuss the System, it is going to be Coach Barber.  At least for the foreseeable future.

It might be more fair to call it "the Arseneault System," as I have from time to time on the boards, to give due credit to its now-retired inventor. I wouldn't be surprised if George Barber is currently the System's most high-profile exponent, though -- especially since Scott Van Pelt has been turning Barber's Panthers into a media darling on SportsCenter.
