Usually we try and relax in the offseason. We have always had ideas of doing an off-season podcast, but we usually end up being distracted by other things. This off-season we decided to go for it.

We did get some "down time" in between the end of the season through the end of May, but we are ready to get back into chatting about DIII - basketball especially.

And there is plenty to talk about starting with the "MIAC Decision" or #TomToss.

Dave McHugh is joined by Pat Coleman to discuss why (no, really, why?!) some of the MIAC presidents decided to "involuntarily" remove St. Thomas from the conference it helped found 99-years ago. We talk about the history, the flaws in the supposed arguments (though, no president has gone on record), and what options UST has moving forward. Dave also gives his thoughts on the topic.

Also hear from two coaches who made some unexpected job decisions this off-season. Dave chats with Sam Hargraves who left Alma for fellow-MIAA member Olivet despite his alma mater, Calvin, having a job opening. And Gordon Mann chats with Michael Coppolino who shifted coasts to take over the vaunted George Fox program - something that was even unusual for GFU.

Plus, a brief look at some of the other coaching decisions as the calendar turns towards summer.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops .com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. The May Edition is an audio-only podcast. You can listen to it here: http://bit.ly/2WPSdKM

Guests Schedule (order subject to change):
- Pat Coleman, Editor-in-Chief D3sports .com
- Sam Hargraves, new Olivet men's coach
- Michael Coppolino, new George Fox women's coach (interviewed by D3hoops .com's Gordon Mann)

The start of the #d3hoops season is days away. Many may be wondering when #Hoopsville will debut.

Hoopsville will be on the air for it's 17th season ... but it has become a question of when. Soon for sure.

It might be early in the 2019-20 season, but there are already big games being played, surprising results, and teams off to tremendous starts. It isn't even Thanksgiving ... yet.

We start prepping for the big day of Turkey by stuffing ourselves full of DIII basketball topics on Thursday's show. We talk retirement and coaching changes (since we didn't really talk about that Sunday), plus several teams have caught our attention for how they have started their campaigns.

On Thursday night's show, Dave chats with NYU women who are undefeated and defeated Stevens in their last time on the court. We also chat with Carthage men who knocked off the defending national champions recently. Plus, the dean of Division III coaching decided days before the season began to hang up the jacket. F&M's Glenn Robinson talks about why he decided to retire within distance of 1,000 wins.

And what should we expect on the women's side of things this season. D3hoops.com Senior Editor Gordon Mann joins the show to take a deep dive into the Top 25 and things he has seen in the first two weeks of the season.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch Thursday's show LIVE in the video player above starting at 7:00 p.m. ET. An audio-only podcast will also be available on the right side of the page shortly after the show is off the air.

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 the social media options to the right.

Guests Schedule (order subject to change):
- Bosko Djurickovic, Carthage men's coach
- Meg Barber, NYU women's head coach
- Glenn Robinson, former F&M men's coach
- Gordon Mann, D3hoops.com Senior Editor

Each season there are a few teams that get out to starts that makes everyone turn their heads. There are always a few "wait, what?!" "They beat who?!" And even a, "are they seriously (say record)?!"

Yes, they are. And thus we should talk to them.

On Sunday's Hoopsville, hear from a few coaches who have their teams out to blazing starts. UW-Platteville women are undefeated with wins over No. 18 Chicago and No. 4 Wartburg. William Peace women have equaled their win total from last season and defeated No. 15 Christopher Newport. And Oberlin men started undefeated and off to one of the program's best starts.

Hear from each of their coaches on what is working so well early in the season and if they can continue to surprise and steal headlines the rest of the season.

Plus, Bob Quillman and Ryan Scott return with a look at where the Top 25 now sits with the first in-season poll coming up on Monday. Find out who Bob, Ryan, and Dave select for their Dubious, Deep Dive, and Debatable selections are ahead of the Week 1 poll.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch Sunday's show LIVE starting at 7:00 p.m. ET here: www.d3hoopsville.com or http://bit.ly/34fV7IZ.

Guests Schedule (order subject to change):
- Kelly McNiff, UW-Platteville women's coach

Every off-season has it's headlines and surprising news. This past off-season seemed to have a few extra more surprising results. While we are nearly a month into the new season, decisions in the off-season are continuing to make waves throughout Division III.

On Sunday's Hoopsville, Dave chats with a couple of coaches whose programs are dealing with some of the decisions made. Scranton women's basketball may have surprised some by hiring a coach from Division I - bucking a trend of hiring those who know the Royals program (to some degree). And St. Thomas men's basketball is trying to stay focused on the job at hand - this season - while moves have already been made to not only push the Tommies out of the MIAC, but possibly move them out of DIII altogether.

Plus, the Top 25s once again continue to be ... unsettled. We take a look at another turbulent week for ranked teams. Bob Quillman joins Dave for the Top 25 Double-Take.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch Sunday's show LIVE starting at 7:00 PM ET here: www.d3hoopsville.com, www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville, or https://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2019-20/dec1 (http://bit.ly/2qaEXlB). You can also watch on (and interact) on the Facebook and YouTube simulcasts.

You can also watch Hoopsville on our OTT app found on Amazon Fire, Android TV, Apple TV, and Roku. Just look for the Team1 Sports app and you will either see it under the "live" section or search for Hoopsville.

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 the social media options.

Guests Schedule (order subject to change):
- Nick DiPillo, No. 3 Scranton women's head coach
- John Taurer, No. 7 St. Thomas men's head coach
- Bob Quillman, Top 25 Double-Take

Thanks Magic and Bengals for the reintroduction to the YAC--Hope you all had enough turkey for Thanksgiving and enjoyed all the B-ball games D1 and D3. I watched my Eagles play Salisbury St. yesterday and glad they came away with a victory. I agree with your assessment, Magic, very sloppily played but that's part of early season and Thanksgiving thrown in there too. I like the YAC's competitiveness in the non-conference games, but totally agree that we need more victories when being considered for the NCAA at large bids. Going to see B-port  live in Daytona Beach at the Mauro Panaggio Memorial tourney at Mike Panaggio's venue in Daytona. It is a big weekend for them in the SUNY with Oswego and Cortland coming to town! Two big wins would be a great start!!! Good luck, Eagles!!!

The 2019-20 season started a month ago. Already there has been plenty to talk about with still three months of regular season basketball to be played. And just as things got rolling on the court, now is also a time when we see things slow down for finals and the holiday break.

On Monday's special edition of Hoopsville, Dave chats with a few teams who are off to pretty good starts in the opening month. Some maybe surprising and others with still plenty of questions to be asked.

How good is Baldwin Wallace women and how hard with the OAC be this season? Are the Edgewood women as good as their incredible 9-0 start leads one to believe? And Whitworth men technically have a new coach at the helm, but is this the same Pirates program we've gotten used to over the years?

Plus, we react to what should be brand new men's and women's Top 25 polls.

Hoopsville is presented by D3hoops.com and airs from the WBCA/NABC Studio. You can watch Monday's show LIVE with the following options:
- Main page: www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville
- Show page: www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2019-20/dec9 or http://bit.ly/2PrIkwY
