The Blog’s 2014 Season Awards

There was one day when I woke up and I had a vision. A vision that I should dedicate my life to DIII Tennis Blogging, giving feedback and recognition to players who worked their asses off but always played second or even third fiddle to their DI counterparts.  I’m proud to say that the vision…

Central Region Obituaries

I have been instructed to follow the same format as Mr. D3West in our post season wrap up so in an effort to be a conformist (how fun is that!), here goes nothing. The Central region had another solid season filled with teams that are doubles specialist and grit out wins. It seems to be…

FINAL Power Rankings

Well, well, well.  We’ve come to another conclusion of the DIII Tennis Season and boy has it been a great one.  As promised, we’ll be recapping the year by region later on and giving out some cool awards that we think you should check back for.  In the meantime, indulge yourself with our final power…

A Mini Recap of NCAAs

Phew! Aren’t you glad that’s over? No? Me neither! Now it’s time for some serious withdrawal. Luckily, the writers will be working hard to try and avoid that wretched end of season feeling with recaps, previews, interviews, and of course, RANKINGS! My first post-NCAA piece will be something like a recap where I detail a…

D3Tennis: E8 Recap

I was supposed to write an extensive preview for the Elite 8, but couldn’t find the time and saw all the other bloggers doing a great job. Instead, I will provide some brief reflections on this week and the 8 teams that competed. I’m sure there will be a season recap in the near future…

The Elite 8 Previews: Trinity TX vs. Wash U

Everybody knows what happened the last time these two teams met. Wash U won a not-really-all-that-competitive 6-3 match in the semis of National Indoors, which has weighed pretty heavy on TU’s resume ever since. If you think this match is going to follow the same script, however, you are sorely mistaken. For one, this match…

The Elite 8 Previews: Middlebury vs. Case Western

Well hello again boys and girls, and welcome to The Blog’s 2nd Quarterfinal Preview. Earlier, ASowth and I took a look at a marquee singles’ matchup of the quarterfinals, Amherst and Emory. In this 2nd quarterfinal, D3Central and I are back to preview a stronger doubles match, Case Western and Middlebury. You all know their…

Through the Eyes of ASouth: Elite 8. Who’s Clutch, Who’s Not? (Part 3)

I realized that I said I would get to Trinity TX in my last article, but I guess it just wasn’t in the cards.  Shots of Belvedere are enticing ya know what I’m saying?  Elite 8 starts tomorrow, so I better get this thing out before everyone starts going crazy on the blog.  We’ve got…

Through The Eyes of ASouth: Elite 8 – Who’s Clutch, Who’s Not? (Part 1 of 3)

Hello!  I know that I’m very late on this “Through the Eyes” article, but I wanted to do something a bit differently this time around considering we have 4 writers this year.  I know you guys don’t want to read the same shit over and over, so I decided to do an article about the…

Vanilla Central with an Elite 8 Rap!

Well I was absolutely blown away with D3West’s poem to the teams of his region. Because of this, I got a bit of inspiration to write something a bit more creative on the Elite 8. So without further ado, I present to you the musical genius that is Vanilla Ice. Instead of his lyrical masterpiece,…
