Only 128 folks have donated so far.  C'mon folks, do you want MUC57 on the street, earning D3 credits 25 cents at a time?

This has been my family for over 30 years.  Not ready to give y'all up.  Please donate.  Thanks! 
Mom

  I agree with you Mom, and I've been trying to donate for a week now but every time I make an attempt, whether through Patreon or the one-time page, I get the circle of doom and can't get any farther in the process. Maybe it's just my really old iPad making trouble, but at this point I'm almost ready to send a check addressed to "Pat Coleman, somewhere in Minnesota" and hope for the best.

I'm in.

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!

I'm late to the party, but I just signed up as well.  As I post every year about purchasing Kickoff, we all enjoy this site for news and, of course, bantering on the boards with each other.  Pat doesn't charge us or bombard us with ads so the least we can do is pitch in a few bucks to support something we enjoy.  Pat shouldn't be coming out of his own pocket when there are so many of us on here regularly.

As a heads up for anyone else hopefully signing up soon you have to verify your email on Patreon if you're new.  Initially I was getting the spinning wheel in the credit card number field at checkout, but it was only because I hadn't verified my email address yet (link at the top of the screen).

I was giving Trump's MAGA $20.20 per month, and you see how that turned out for me.
May as well take the 1% discount and give it to Pat ... MD3GA!!! ... LOL!

  I found the one time gift the easiest way to donate.

Happy New Year OAC'ers and friends. 2020 was nothing to write home about so let's all hope 2021 is better for everyone.
In Romanian we say, "an Nou Fericit". 🎉 🎈 🍾


A good New Year's resolution would be to support Pat Coleman and his d3football site that we all love.
For years, he has supplied us with football games, data, facts, people and many other aspects of this game we love.
It's payback time. Let's all chip in.

Go 2021! Go d3football!

I have not posted in a very long time. This past year has not been the best (what an understatement) and I am looking forward to putting it to rest and moving on. I would like, however to say that if any of you are struggling - emotionally, mentally - or know someone who is, please don't be afraid to reach out and ask for help or ask someone if they need it. My younger brother (47) committed suicide a couple months ago. We were not close, and had not spoken in a few years, but he was still my brother. I can't help but wonder how things would have turned out had he asked for help - or had I asked if he needed it. Regardless, no child should ever have to find their parent like that.

Add to that my father (89) lost his battle with COVID (after 3 bouts of pneumonia) a month later and I can safely say: 2020 can kiss my ass. My dad was a Vet (Korea 1952-53), married for 65 years, father of 8, grandfather to 10 and great-grandfather to 3. Despite this large family - my father died alone in a COVID ward after having bounced back and forth between quarantine at a nursing home f(or physical therapy from a surgery) and the hospital for 3 weeks. How my mother has had the strength I will never know.

May 2021 be better and brighter. Hug the ones you love and reach out to those you have forgotten. Thanks for everything Pat and all the D3 crew. I will head over to try and help this continue. Sorry for rambling - guess I just needed to. Thanks guys and - Roll Raiders~Roll!

I'm so sorry, DesertRaider.  Losing family is tough enough, but losing them when we cannot connect with our loved ones makes it even more painful.  The phrase "died alone" should never happen.  And I agree that we need to try and encourage our family to ask for help.  Sadly, for the same reasons.

Yes, I hope 2021 will be better.  As of January 6, it doesn't seem that way.  As someone who lives in the DC area, this has been a horrible day.  Keep rambling.  We all need to vent in order to keep our mental wellness.  Reach out, as you have many friends here.  We have your back.  Mom

Mount Union got a little shout out on ESPN after the championship game Monday!
In case anyone is interested, Mount Union and Alabama are now tied with 13 titles apiece.
They are chasing North Dakota State with 16 (between DII and FCS)

Thanks 66

You JCU guys are OK after all! Let me just add that all of Mount Union's titles were won on the field, not as the result of polls. No one else can say that.
Hope you and little brother are doing well. Miss hearing from you two.
Stay safe. Stay well. Happy New Yeat and Go Blue Streaks! 🏈 🍺
