The Ever-Popular Recruiting/Development Rankings

Some of you more loyal readers may recall the recruiting/development rankings I created at some point around this time last year.

Weekend Recap: Feb. 22-24

I have the privilege of breaking down the other matches from the weekend. I won’t waste any time. #17 Case Western-6 def. #28 Depauw 3: The preview of this match called for a routine Case Western victory. Honestly, it came to pass pretty much as D3TG predicted.

Pomona-Pitzer, Bates, and the Pool C Bubble

Lost in the excitement of the National Indoors this weekend was perhaps the most significant match of the season so far (as far as post-season implications goes).

Non-Indoors Weekend Preview

Obviously, Indoors is the biggest show in town this weekend, but there are some other important matches going on, which deserve some attention.
