My career started in Division II (Nova Southeastern Sharks & UIndy Greyhounds) and I grew up in a small Indiana town sandwiched between Division III rival schools (DePauw Tigers & Wabash Little Giants). Now I want to focus on the 1,000+ institutions in NCAA D2/D3 and the NAIA because I understand how important these schools are to higher education.

Launching in Fall 2020, The Not So Small School Podcast is an extension of the original HEA Podcast with college presidents, athletic directors, researchers, commissioners, journalists and NCAA/NAIA leaders discussing everything higher ed and athletics.

Over the summer I’ll be recording episodes, but I’d like some help. Please visit the CONTACT page or send an email to if you have specific questions or interesting stories covering HEA topics at these types of institutions.

Expected Topics:

  • COVID-19 Developments
  • Athlete-Dependent Enrollment Trends
  • NCAA/NAIA Reclassification
  • Conference Alignment
  • Name, Image & Likeness
  • Future of Higher Education
  • History & Highlights of the Institution

The podcast is open to up to 3 sponsors for The Not So Small School podcast (1 for each D2/D3/NAIA classification). Interested individuals/organizations can reach out using the CONTACT page or send an email to and write “Sponsor” in the subject line.
