North Region football / Re: FB: Ohio Athletic Conference

Another interesting note, Brandon Lee, WR from Florida has transferred to Akron. He was a freshmen last year and seemed to be in line for serious playing time. Arth is quoted as really looking this guy. I know they'll be fine at receiver, it's just odd to see.

“I was at the University of Mount Union and I decided that I could do better,” he said.

Ok...

Interesting flex for a guy that *checks notes* caught three passes for 14 yards and lost a fumble.  Can't really ever fault somebody for taking the opportunity to play FBS ball (and get at least some significant chunk of college paid for), but that's kind of a weird thing to say.

He wouldn't have played any significant role for Mount Union (attitude)

  I don't understand the kid's thinking. Mount Union has had two WRs make it in the NFL. Has Akron had any?  Mount has an All American QB coming back, a veteran offensive line and always has a prolific pass offense. Who is Akron's QB?  Akron's football program is on life support. The faculty is solidly in favor of abolishing it, and for good reason. It is an unacceptable drain on the University's resources. Student fees at Akron are higher than at comparable institutions for one reason, the football program. Would anyone be shocked if Akron did away with D1 football?

Akron should never have gone to FBS.  FCS (D1A back in the day) would be a much better fit.  Although they have had some success in D1 Basketball & Soccer.

Yep success in soccer and basketball, which makes them a perfect candidate for FCS! the subdivision was literally made for schools they wanted to be d1 athletically but couldn’t afford to play with the big boys in football. Over on the YSU forums it’s kind of an ongoing discussion that almost all MAC schools would be better off in FCS

Isn't FCS the old "1AA"? I think that's right. Ah, but see the signature below.  :o

You are correct Muc, FCS was previously 1AA.

Great Lakes Region / Re: MBB: Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association

Haven't seen it on social media yet, but an interesting commitment should be known soon … one of the two MIAA schools without a coach will get one of the most widely recruited MIAA/WHAC recruits in Michigan, breaking the heart of another MIAA school.

Pure guess on my part
https://bankhoops.com/college-coaches-like-ike-plainwell-senior-guard-trending/

I've got 3 others if I miss the mark here. ;)

Not sure if this was exactly who SBell was referring to (he was my first guess as well) but...

6-2 G Isaac Davis (Plainwell) will attend Calvin.

Guessing the broken heart is either Albion or Kzoo.


Rereading this I see it looks bad.  I didn't mean to suggest Hope wasn't involved in recruiting Isaac or wouldn't want him, I just believe his decision came down to Calvin and someone else.  As Steven Bell suggest he was a highly sought after player at the D3/NAIA level in Michigan, including Hope.

Per Twitter - Brady Swinehart G Ionia will be attending Hope!  Brady was first team all-state D2, scores over 1400 points in his HS career, made 75 3s this past season while averaging 21.5 pts, 4 reb, 2 ast, and 2 stl per game.

Pretty fabulous recruiting class

Caught Brady once in late February in a Monday night make up game at Mason.  Somewhat ironically he had visited Hope just that morning, which made for a long day for him and it was of course one of his lowest scoring games this past season.  Brady's one of those kids that makes the ball look light on 3-point shots.  He can play the point or the two.

I see that Warroad’s Tim Oshie got cheap shotted into the boards and broke his collarbone.  Gotta cheat to keep the northern Minnesota boys down.

Don't get retagent started, he's been pretty quiet thus far in the playoffs.

Speaking of which, it's not the same without our resident NHL expert bennie weighing in on things.  ???
Maybe they saw how an Avalanche can put out the Flames!  :D

I viewed the Caltech home page here on D3baseball.com and saw this news release.

Caltech Beats '17 National Champs CLU for First Time in Over 50 Years
The Caltech Baseball team made history once again this year, this time scoring perhaps the biggest victory since the program's formative years nearly a century ago.

No, it is not an April Fool's joke.

Congrats to Cal Tech
