What We're Reading

  • »Bush ends stellar career at Hobart
  • Alex Bush saw an extremely successful collegiate football career at Hobart end this fall in the second round of the NCAA Division III tournament this fall.
  • »Former Union WR living the dream with Texas
  • David Thomann never caught a pass at Union and hasn't even gotten into a game at Texas, but he's dressed for games and is headed to the Alamo Bowl.
  • »How D-III colleges profit from football
  • Deadspin's take on how Division III football drives enrollment leaned heavily on analysis from D3football.com's Pat Coleman. Good take on D-III, actually.
