Get In The Game: What You Can Expect From Our Noontime Coverage This Fall

GITG Matt Noonan

By Matt Noonan (@MattNoonan11) 

Happy Wednesday, Noontime Sports (and NoontimeSports.com) fans!

It’s an exciting time these days – not just because football has returned – but our site has been updated with some new features, including an easy way to join our email list (you can sign-up on the right side of the screen if you’re on a laptop or tablet or at the bottom of the page on mobile).

Additionally, we have introduced a brand-new podcast for the upcoming football season – Football Friday – which has been a great addition to our New England D3 coverage. We have had some great guests thus far – thank you to those that have taken the time to join us! – and will have more interviews with coaches, student-athletes and media members before, during and after the season, so make sure to circle back every Friday for a new show.

Quick ‘Football Friday’ Plug for this week (Aug. 9th): There will be now show this week, but we will return next week after a quick (and brief) one-week hiatus! 

In addition to a brand new looking site and podcast, we will also unveil some new content this season (and school year). Most of this content you may or may not have seen in the past, but it will include longer-form features on student-athletes, coaches and teams, more videos, including a weekly Facebook Live Show, and new guests for Noontime Sports the Podcast. 

We will also expand our reach (or audience, technically), adding some Division I and II coverage in New England, and we may even sprinkle in some high school stories, too.

All in all, the biggest goal going forward for our site (and social network channels) is to produce unique and engaging content for you, the reader (and fan). We want to shed a different light on a player, and perhaps a play or series from a game. We want to take you inside the minds of some of your favorite programs – perhaps some film studies or a day in a life? – while producing content that you won’t always see on national or local site.

And as we begin to embark on an exciting new chapter, we want to hear from you, the fans and readers. We want to know what you think, as well as what you want to read and view, both here on our site and social media channels, too. Send us an email to NoontimeSports@gmail.com or connect with us on social media (Facebook, Twitter and YouTube).

All in all, this is an exciting time for our site and I am really looking forward to providing unique and engaging content this upcoming school year!

The Noontime Friday Rewind: June 2nd

By Matt Noonan (@MattNoonan11) 

Happy Friday and a happy (early) weekend, everyone!

Noontime Sports is pleased to unveil its first-ever ‘Friday-Rewind,’ a look back at our various posts (and news) from the week.

Consider this a recap of the week’s news – or technically, an in-case-you-missed-it! 

So, what did we blog about this week?

Let’s begin with the Coast Guard Academy football team, which unveiled its 2017 slate earlier this week. The Bears, who are coming off a 3-7 campaign, will look to commence its new season on a high note when they host Alfred State at the end of August.

On Thursday – yesterday, to be exact – we unveiled our very early preseason college football coverage plan, which includes some blogs on team’s schedules and podcasts.

If you have an idea for a possible story or additional ways we can improve our early season coverage of New England Division III football, let us know by sending us an email to NoontimeSports@gmail.com. You can also send me a tweet on Twitter (@MattNoonan11). 

We concluded Thursday with an early look – and yes, a few thoughts – on the Bridgewater State football schedule, which features a pair of non-conference tilts in the first two weeks. The Bears will open its 2017 campaign at Buffalo State before entertaining Endicott College one week later.

Finally – this is a REAL in-case-you-missed-it from last month – but if you want to know what teams we’ll be eyeballing this coming season, then check-out my post on ‘What teams to Watch in 2017?’

That’s a wrap on a fun week of blogging (and coverage), have a great weekend, everyone, and be kind to each other, too!
