DIII Discussion: Best Team of the Past 5 Years

We at the blog refuse to take any rest.  Given the state of the week (a lot of Northeast stuff, and who wants to read all D3Northeast?) we’ve decided to reach out on twitter to get a gauge of what kind of articles you guys wanted to see.  Well, one of the suggestions via e-mail…

Case/CMU: Pass the Joint Preview

What’s it going to be? Spartans or the Tartans? It looks like I (D3Central) am taking the lead on the Carnegie Mellon and Case Western preview. D3ASouth will be joining me, but he reminded me that he has a job and since I am a retired war veteran, I have all the time in the…

9 Matches, 2 Writers, 1 Preview. The Emory Weekend.

I recently found D3Northeast in a small cave off the coast of Mexico, and it looks like he’s ready to return to his duties at the blog.  He recently went through a pretty tough time in which he was struggling with his confidence, but he was able to consult some self-help books and now he…

State of the Region Address: Atlantic South

Did you guys know that the State of the Region Address was my idea last year, as a rookie?  I think I might have been rookie of the year last year but I never got my trophy.  Started from the bottom, now we here.  Despite taking over the national scene and getting a better understanding…

The Spring Break Chronicles: Williams Ephs

Welcome to my final Spring Break Chronicle: The Williams Ephs. It’s been a real pleasure writing these previews, and then seeing my “lineup-less” predictions go down in flames, but I’m here, at your mercy, ready to give it one more go. The Ephs are your defending national champions, though many people have already forgotten about…

The Real Bracketology: Edition One

So, it’s that time of year again where we start thinking heavily about the NCAA tournament.  This is what everyone’s here for anyways, correct?  Bracketology is one of the best ways to get y’all active and thinking about where teams will be as spring hits.  We’ve already completed Indoor Nationals, the Stag-Hen tournament, and a…

3/18 Division III Power Rankings

And…….. here is another edition of our weekly Power Rankings! Not many changes this week as it looks like teams are officially beginning to settle in.  Maybe there will be some fireworks this week with Amherst’s Spring Break and a few interesting matches over the weekend.  We could definitely use a change-up.  See the Power…

Spring Break Final Chapters: CMU, A Recap

As you all know, we’ve been going through our “Spring Break Chronicle” format in recent weeks as a ton of the East-Coast teams go on their California spring breaks (and in Kenyon’s case, Mardi Gras) to get some good tennis in and really shape up the later NCAA brackets.  Now, with a ton of Spring…

Not So Rapid Reaction – Stag Hen Day 1 and Preview

Hi, so I know I was supposed to get this out a bit earlier, but time was crunched and this will be a bit rushed.  We still have another full day of Stag-Hen action to look forward to as we’ll see who our champion is by the end of the day tomorrow.  It was really…

The Stag-Hen General Preview… Quad Box Style.

You’re about to witness history.  Never have we ever done a preview of this style before, with all 4 writers hopping in on a preview.  It’s a collaboration of epic proportions.  The way we’ll do this is ask a general question and have each of our writers provide their thoughts on it in a paragraph…
