Does or did anyone play sports in college? It takes up a lot of time but I think its worth it. I am currently wrestling for a small d3 school

CIS Football represent!

Probably close to the equivalent of a D2 in the states.

Intramurals are the closest I get.

I quote Toby Keith in saying "I aint as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was."

Intramurals...although I'm pretty sure I could be a better quarterback than Terrell Pryor right now...any of us could.

Toby Keith can lick my nine.

I could have ran track at Texas Lutheran, but that would have been a ****** place to go to college.

I could have played D3 basketball, and I'm already regretting not doing it.

In 100% seriousness though, I really impressed some Belmont basketball coaches in my freshman and sophomore years of high school but I never pursued basketball at a school level after those years. I think in the end if I had played high school ball they may have offered me a walk-on role at least.

I just dont see the point in D3 sports. You don't get a scholarship, you're just wasting your time. I'd really have to want to play for my school's team to do that.

Or you really love the game. For the most part D3 kids come from wealthy families who can afford to pay the tuition, but I do know that instead of athletic scholarships they receive academic ones to balance things out.

I just love wrestling thats why I do it. d3 sports dont hurt your social life, you become friends with your team. The only thing that it would affect is your ability to go out and drink on weekends because of matches

I play pick-up basketball at the UGA campus fitness center quite often. During the offseason I played with UGA football and basketball players quite often. AJ Green came out and played with us one time when I was there.

I'm a freshman at Dartmouth right now, and a member of the football team. Unfortunately, playing a dying position(fullback) hasn't helped my chances for playing time. I made second string fullback just as the team began to move away from using one(meaning even our starter doesn't get many reps), so I'm working my way into the RB rotation as a goal-line/powerback. Hopefully by soph/junior year it works into some game snaps.

I was recruited by a few D3 schools and 2-3 other Ivies. You don't get scholarships in D3, but coaches at times can have a lot of pull with financial aid. If they want you, and you can show you need the aid, you can get an academic scholarship that will cover your needs and, essentially, act as a sports scholarship.

The better the academic quality of the school(I looked primarily at NESCAC schools like Amherst and Williams) the more likely this is due to their bigger endowments and need-blind aid policies. I know that there are definitely a number of kids there for free and playing football-certainly not a waste of time.

I was actually approached by U.C. Irvine for baseball in 1991, my junior year of HS. What's funny is that was the last year for like a decade they had a baseball team due to severe budget cuts. That would have sucked.
