First, we apologize for the "June Podcast" showing up in early July. Computer problems caused havoc this month. Sadly, it delayed our production plans for several weeks, but we are calling this our June edition all the same.

When the season came to a sudden close, it left a lot of unfinished business on our end. We didn't have national champions to talk to, but we also had a lot of news to cover. This podcast we take some time to do some catching-up with the season's number one men's team and the Jostens Trophy winners - with Gordon Mann and Ryan Scott picking up the interviewing responsibilities.

And we all know the coronavirus has changed everything this year, but how close to home has it hit you? We talk to one coach who experienced it himself first hand while also having his wife be diagnosed with COVID-19 days after giving birth to their first child.

Guests include:
- Matt Airy, Aurora men's coach
- Sydney Kopp, No. 11 DePauw's Jostens Trophy winner (interviewed by Gordon Mann)
- Kena Gilmour, Hamilton's Jostens Trophy winner (interviewed by Ryan Scott)
- Landry Kosmolski, No. 1 Swarthmore men's coach

Oh, did we mention the Hoopsville Notebook? It is a jam-packed notebook this edition. Plenty of notes regarding coaching hires and changes, athletic decisions per COVID-19, Regional Ranking updates, and much more.

Dave also takes the time to say goodbye to Chris Wenzler, Sports Information Director at John Carroll University, who lost his 26-month battle with cancer. This month's show is dedicated in his honor.

You can listen to the podcast here: https://bit.ly/38i86Nc

Hoopsville broadcasts from the WBCA/NABC Studio. All guests are featured on the BlueFrame Technology Hoopsville Hotline. The offseason plan is to do a podcast each month. The shows will be audio-only leading up to the start of the 2020-21 when we will restart the video shows.

I ran across this today.  Not sure if it was public before or even if this is final.  Obviously it's already out of date with some association changes since the summer.  It gives us a good look at how they're thinking, though:

...Did they forget Maranatha Baptist exists? (Not that that's a hard thing to do.)

Here's how each region would change this year and be projected to change next year (which I assume is the earliest this could be implemented):

I Lost Suffolk; gained Cazenovia, Dean, SUNY Cobleskill, and SUNY Poly will gain SUNY Delhi 42
II Lost Pine Manor, gained Suffolk 34
III Gained Keuka 42
IV Lost Cazenovia, Eastern, Keuka, SUNY Cobleskill, and SUNY Poly; gained Arcadia and Lycoming will gain St. Mary's (MD) 38
V Lost Arcadia and Lycoming; gained Eastern and York (PA) 43
VI Lost York (PA); gained Brevard and Pfeiffer will lose St. Mary's (MD) and gain Mary Baldwin 40
VII Lost D'Youville 49
VIII Lost MacMurray will lose Iowa Wesleyan and gain St. Norbert 42
IX Will lose St. Norbert and St. Thomas (MN) 46
X Will lose Louisiana College 38

I'd like them to move Skyline to 2, CUNYAC to 3, and CSAC to 4.  I think that evens things out a bit better, but this is fine.  I'm sure things will still get changed a bit before it's implemented.

Maranatha is on restricted membership due to various violations and I think they're just going to leave the division/NCAA completely.

Oh, those wacky Maranatha Baptist kids and their freewheeling, anything-goes lifestyle!
