This Week In Highlights, 3/29

Welcome back to another installation of This Week in Highlights. While we don’t have many actual tennis highlights for you, we certainly have a lot of general highlights, including one of the most anticipated videos of the year finally coming out. And no, it wasn’t the latest Calvin Harris collaboration, but you’ll see what it…

The Guru’s Brief Midseason Review

It sounds amazing, but we are just about half way through the 2017 season. I wrote some brief comments on each team and broke things into five categories. I tried to touch on just about everyone in the top 30 as well as a few other teams that have stuck out to me. Apologies if…

2017 Power Rankings, 3/23

It’s Thursday, and that means Power Rankings. While the top 20 was fairly silent with no big upsets the past week, we did have some movement down below that I am sure our regional writers and readers are more than excited about. Also, we just released AVZ’s first podcast ever, featuring an interview with #8…

THE MAIN EVENT: #1 Emory vs. #7 Amherst

AS: Welcome to the main event, peeps. This match is actually huge. Why? Because if Amherst wins, we can probably officially say that the NESCAC is going to get more Pool C spots than the UAA this year. Now, that might happen anyways because Middlebury plays Emory later on this year, but I feel like…

Power Rankings, 3/16

So, I will admit. This should have gone out early this morning but I got distracted by all the bracket madness going around. These are the best two days of the year hands down. So, excuse me if I let Power Rankings take a back seat for another college sport. Anyways, we had a ton…

#7 Amherst vs #24 Kenyon

Amherst vs Kenyon: Monday, March 13 at 8 a.m. Amherst kicked off its 2017 season earlier today with a convincing 8-1 win over Stevens. The (hopefully) soon to be Hamsters will take on Roger Williams this evening, but D3Midwest and I are going to quickly look ahead to tomorrow morning’s bout between Amherst and Kenyon.…

The NESCAC Awakens from Hibernation

There is a scene in SpongeBob SquarePants when the titular character and his starfish sidekick discover and eventually awaken their rodent pal from her annual winter slumber. At some point along the way, Patrick utters the line, “hibernation must mean the opposite of beauty sleep.” In this example, and in many other cases, the philosophy of Patrick…

Power Rankings, 3/9

On Thursdays, we power rank. Well, technically we power rank on Wednesdays, but I don’t get around to posting it until Thursday afternoon. Shoutout to all the bloggers who made it to the power rankings powwow yesterday even though I was not able to make it. I’m still recovering from that 3 hour episode of the…

2017 Power Rankings, 3/2

We’ve got what you’ve all been waiting for. Another edition of Power Rankings for you to dissect, comment on, and ridicule in the comments. With the ITA Rankings coming out today, this is a nice way for you to preview what’s probably about to happen in the rankings. Except, we can be more subjective about…
