Case Western

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…

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: 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…

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,…

Through the Eyes of D3Northeast: The Elite 8

VOTE D3NE! THE TOTALS ARE STARTING TO MAKE ME SAD… Hi everybody (hi doctor D3NE), it’s time to give you all another different perspective on this year’s Elite 8. Don’t you all worry your pretty little eyes, we’ll be doing a boatload of Joint Previews over the weekend, but for now I’m continuing with each…

The 10 Questions of 2013/14: Revisited.

Now that we’ve reached the Elite 8 point in the year, it’s time to take a quick look back at what questions we’ve answered so far.  I’m scared that a lot of teams won’t come to the site since their teams have been eliminated, but to me, DIII Tennis never sleeps.  That’s why I want…

A Trip Down Memory Lane

I promise I will write an actual article about the Elite 8 later in the week, but for now use this as a warm up. I’ve selected 5 matches for each team remaining that are memorable to me when thinking about the program. All 5 of the matches together tell a story and I think…

Through the Eyes of D3West: The Elite Eight

I’m sure some of you (my twenty fans) have noticed that my activity has dropped off pretty significantly at the end of this year. Some of that is because of other (read: real) obligations got in the way, but mostly it’s because my usual end-of-season melancholy kicked in a little earlier than usual. I always…
