How bout some stories, pix (no, the Wisconsin-Stout story doesnt count).

Last year's DIII championship game was a great, great game but that season is over.

How about a story or two and a pix or two from last weekends games !!!

This weekend's Oswego v. Elmira game at the campus centre was phenomenal. Great atmosphere, great intensity from the fans. There was some booster club with a whole bunch of international students at the game, and presumably this was the first hockey game for most of those folks, so that was a great little plus. The D-1 transfers that we have on the team all look fantastic, the speed is certainly there and beckwith in net looks rock solid. Swept the home and home series, something even last year we could not do. I think that this is a sign! The beginning of the road to Minnesota.

The only news (current anyways) will be found here in the forums and @ Webb's D3 West page.

Look @ the weekly columns on the D-III front page. They cover the 2009 Frozen Four.

Face it, USCHO does not give a poop about D-III. My idea for USCHO3 (and Webb's for D3 West) may be the way to go. We just need to hire reporters at each school and pay them $25-50/game to write a good article. Then the national reporters (Webb, Jaslow, Carey, etc) fill in the big picture.

The 4 student reporters for the FF schools get their way paid to the D-III FF. Plus we have a weekly UStream show on D3 hockey. GAWD, it could be fun!!!!!!

Let's face it, the best DIII coverage on the web is what we generate here.

Leave me alone. I'm trying to eat my breakfast pretzel... :-)

Coverage should start picking up this week. Previews are always a bear to do (and, admittedly, I hate doing them). Getting information before the season actually starts is almost impossible for D-III. I'm still waiting for a Cortland roster, so I can get the spelling for the freshmen correct. I plan on sending in my preview tonight to the editor. When it goes up, I can't say, and since I'm a week behind from the date my editor wanted it, I guess I can't complain... I know Biggar plans on sending his preview in this week, and I'm pretty sure that is Owen's plan as well. Of course, Costello can sit around and drink beer for another month before he has to start working. I have no idea what's going on out West.

This weekend, I'll be covering the Potsdam at Brockport and Potsdam at Geneseo games. The following weekend, I plan on being at the Buffalo State at Fredonia (probably) and Plattsburgh at Oswego games.

I'm considering doing a live blog from the Oswego game, similar to what USCHO started doing for the D-I playoffs last year. Would people be interested in this?

IMHO you would be better off blogging games where there is not the type of television (WTOP) or radio (WNYO) coverage available...Oswego home games are well documented and available with high quality, reliable streams....:cool:

Great summary thanks much, what all out of cold pizza ?

I'd say give the Blog a try and see how it works out

Hey, they've changed 3 lines of text and posted a link to the D-III schedule.

What more do you people want?

I agree which is why I'm not decided, yet. However, it's the big games that would get the most participation. No disrespect, but how many people are going to participate in a live blog for a Morrisville-Cortland showdown?

True, but Morrisville-Elmira would probably do well (especially since they split last year) ;)

SideArm stats (at a minimum), is available for most many SUNYAC games, so it is tough. Never enough coverage though, IMO, do your best, but I wouldn't spend the resources of doing a live blog at the expense of something that offered more (or unique) coverage. Also, in all seriousness, thank you for your contributions, in the end; it has to be a labor of love.

I'll be sending in the ECAC West preview to the editors on Wednesday of this week. I would have had it submitted late last week but ended up being out of town for four days. Every once in a while, life gets in the way of hobbies.

Agreed - USCHO management should fund more of them and give more attention to DIII. It's not the writers that are the problem

Ok thanks USCHO, keep the the stories and pix coming. There are almost double the number of DIII as DI hockey programs. Thanks for the preseason reviews !

My favorite feature about the new site for this new season is that I get "page not found" errors half the time I click on the D-III Men page.
