Noontime Sports The Podcast: Episode 25 (Logan Hansen | Hansen Ratings)

By NoontimeSports.com (@NoontimeSports) 

Noontime Sports the Podcast returned this week as host Matt Noonan welcomed Logan Hansen of Hansen Ratings to the show to discuss some NCAA Division III football.

Hansen runs a site that is all about rankings – yes, rankings. Yet, this isn’t just your typical rankings site based on records or perhaps strength of schedule. Instead, there is some ‘madness’ behind these rankings, which Hansen explains on this podcast.

Additionally, Hansen and Noonan discuss a few games fans should watch or follow in the first week of the season – Hansen also dished out an early championship prediction, too.
