As part of my internship in the sports information office at Augustana this term there has been an academic component that I manage to find time to complete occasionally. One of my assignments was to conduct brief 5-10 minute long phone interviews with three sports information directors that I have never interacted with before.
The three victims of my interviews were Dave Blanchard from Luther, Jim McGrath of Butler (formerly Augustana), and Dave Hilbert from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois.
Luther is a Division III school while Butler is Division I and St. Francis is an NAIA institution. Having the opportunity to speak with individuals from three different levels of competition was really interesting. It was cool to learn how different schools, at different levels, operate so similarly.
In the next couple of days I will get the questions and answers up from those interviews in my blog.
