Daily Noontime: Thursday, February 4, 2021

By NoontimeSports.com

Welcome to Thursday, everyone – we decided to post our Daily Noontime a bit earlier than yesterday, which we hope will bring a smile to your face (and a sense of relief, too – fingers crossed!).

Let’s get after it and make today a great day – isn’t every day awesome? – by sharing some news and links from the sports world.


Enjoy a brand new podcast – today, we welcomed John Avino, who is a Massachusetts based sports broadcaster that is currently announcing games at Boston University, Holy Cross, and Northeastern University.

Listen to today’s show on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Anchor – you can visit our Anchor page to also find out where our show is being distributed (and shared!).


Let’s begin with some big news from the NCAA world as the Division III winter championships were canceled for the second-straight year.

As noted on Twitter yesterday – well, more last night, to be exact! – it appears the main reason D-III championships were canceled was due to “low participation numbers.” Spring championships at the D-III level have not been canceled – the hope, according to last night’s release is for teams that compete at the end of the academic year to have a chance to compete for a national championship.

And since we love Twitter, make sure to watch the latest video from our friends at In The (D3FB) HuddleFrank Rossi shares his thoughts on why he believes championships should occur, despite not many teams (or schools) competing this winter.

Speaking of D-III football, the spring season – yes, a spring season! – is set to begin this weekend. And you can find out who is playing by visiting D3Football.com’s scoreboard … now!

In addition to D-III football being played this spring – again, that sounds crazy, right? – there will also be some NCAA D-I Football Championship (FCS) games taking place, beginning next Saturday, February 13 when McNeese State visits Tarleton State for a 7 p.m. kickoff.

And just a quick program note, we will be covering spring football, both here in New England (and the northeast) and around the country, so make sure to stop by over the next few weeks and months for future blog posts. And we’re excited to cover spring football, which again seems strange, but that’s just our “two-cents.”

Let’s switch gears to some quick-hitters:

Finally, Noontime Sports is celebrating Black History Month by producing one post a day on the men and women that have and continue to impact the sports world. Yesterday, we highlighted Bobby Marshall, who was one of the first Africa American’s to play professional football.
