Dave, itís all fixed!!

I usually listen to the podcast version of Hoopsville on apple podcasts. But when I went to listen last night it started with the interview of the Amherst WBB coach... I tried to listen from computer through SoundCloud and it started at the same spot. Anyways, although it didnít notify me a new podcast is available when I tried to listen tonight it started from the beginning of your show!

Glad you were able to fix it.

Well, the reason it was the same on Apple as it was SoundCloud is because we don't upload to all of our providers. We upload to one source and that then is populated (via RSS) to the other providers. That's basically how that works for everyone.

Like I said, it was a stupid editing thing I didn't spot. It is a long explanation that only frustrates me. However, if you had listened for about 38 minutes ... you would have probably noticed an abrupt switch to the first half of the show :).

Yes, I am not surprised you didn't get a notification. That's because to keep from losing the analytical data, I simply replaced the audio file at our source. That simply re-populates our providers again. Thus, there isn't a "new" podcast ... we just replaced the content of that podcast. :)

Thanks for the understanding. I need to remember the glitch to watch out for ... again. :)

Figured we could try and promote some of the hard work our columnists, like Ryan Scott, do on a weekly basis... so here it goes:

Around the Nation: Facing a new challenge

The 2018-19 season brings new challenges for coaches across Division III. For Pat Juckem, it's leaving a national finalist to follow a legendary coach at Wash U. For his replacement, it's keeping the Oshkosh momentum going. And for Bob Amsberry, it's replacing the best class in Wartburg women's basketball history.

The 2018-19 season is officially underway and so is Hoopsville. While normally Dave McHugh would be coming to you live from the WBCA/NABC Studio, with the tip-off of the season also comes with it basketball games for Dave.

Thursday's show is a pre-taped preview of the upcoming season. Can either of the preseason number one teams stay on top the entire season? How many teams have a legitamate chance of playing for a national title? Who could possibly be sleepers or surprise? What games should fans be watching early on to get a sense of the season ahead?

The answers to those questions are completely different if you are talking men's or women's basketball. So, on Thursday's show Dave brings in colleagues to give the answers. Gordon Mann and Ryan Scott lend their opinions and insight on the season ahead.

Also, one of the more surprising coaching developments in the last year was the fact Hall of Fame, and former UConn, coach Jim Calhoun was throwing his hat in the DIII ring. We chat with him about why he decided to lead the St. Joseph's (Conn.) program and what to expect out of it's first season.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. Thursday's edition will be available at 7:00 p.m. ET here: http://bit.ly/2qBF3Pz

If you have questions about Division III basketball, feel free to send them and we will answer them on a the show. Email them to hoopsville@d3hoops.com or use any of our social media options listed below.

Thank you ... I appreciate that when we call or email, that people know we are legit. That helps as well.

Dave has "people".

Sometimes we do ... sometimes we are lucky. Let's say this might be in the middle. :)

Coach Calhoun has some nice words at the start of the interview. Oh, and we did ask him the "NABC Coach's Corner" quiz because ... well, why not?!

In Chicago, we say "guy", as in:

"How we gonna fix da plumbing in da community center? We don' have dat much money."

"Don' worry, I godda guy."

When it comes to securing interviews with Hall of Fame bigshots, Dave's godda guy.

HAHA I say that "guy" thing to this day. You can take a person out of Chicago, but you can't take Chicago out of a ... guy. :)

Interview and show delayed. No idea how, but we uploaded it and "scheduled" it to release . It has, instead, disappeared. Worst case, it will be up when I get home from my game. SMH

Sorry folks.

With Olaf losing to Eau Claire, the first top 25 has officially lost a game in the 2018-2019 season... let the craziness and unreal parity of this D3 season ensue!

That's a big upset. Sure St. Olaf is "only ranked" 23rd, but Eau Claire was 4-10 in the WIAC last year and they were picked 7th this season. They lost their top two big scorers and the their top returning scorer averaged 6.7 pts a game.

The FFTMAG Ratings predicted a 4-point Eau Claire win, so the result wasn't a huge surprise to everyone.  ;)

Well, regardless of what your computers say, I still think it was a pretty big upset. I would guess that most would agree. I mean, the pollsters gave the Oles 92 more points than Eau Claire and I'm sure no one thought of giving them any votes. 🤔😎😋😂

How are the preseason "priors" for those rankings computed?  Wooster starting at #142 stands out a bit.

The computer is never wrong.

Yeah, it definitely looks like the computer might be wrong there. I'll check it in the morning.
