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…

ALL-NE TEAMS!

As promised, here are my All-NE teams. I’m not nearly as nice as D3West (we all know that’s simply not true) so I’m not listing one player from each team. HOWEVER, I have made 4 separate teams. 1st and 2nd team ALL-NE are fairly self explanatory in that they are the 1st and 2nd best…

NE Region Obituaries

We are the champions, my friends, and WEEEEEE’LLLLLLLLL KEEEEEEEP ON FIIIIIIIIGHTING TIL THE ENDDDDDDDDD! Not to beat a dead Stag (see what I did there) but for the 4th time in the last 5 years the National Champion has come out of my region. MINE! NOT YOURS!! The NESCAC now has the closest thing to…

Bracket Challenge Winner: Brenton Arnaboldi

Hello again, boys and girls, and welcome to the first installment of Interviews stemming from our Bracket Challenges! First up is Mr. Brenton Arnaboldi. Amidst some conspiracy theories, B-Money won the Singles Bracket Challenge. There will some complaints from the nay-sayers out there, but B-Dawg followed the rules and won the damn thing fair and…

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…

FINALS: CMS VS AMHERST

ASouth: Well, well, well.  I know I said that I wouldn’t be back, but it looks like I’m back, filling in for D3West for an in-depth preview of the CMS/Amherst final.  I think I’ve absorbed enough from the live stream to do an in-depth preview so here goes nothing.  In terms of Northeast, I’m not…

FINAL 4 PREVIEW: AMHERST VS. TRINITY TX

West: Wow, what a match for Trinity today. They came out and got the doubles lead they apparently didn’t even need, their seniors came up huge in singles, and Skinner stayed in the groove he developed in Minnesota. They also corrected the one major criticism I had of them going into this tournament by going…

The Elite 8 Previews: Amherst vs. Emory

Okay folks, it’s time to get those previews going.  Since this is a big time of the year, we’re going to be doing joint previews on every one of our matches, and each writer is going to defend his region’s team as to why he thinks they’ll win.  We’ll be doing this for every single…

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…
