Happy Wednesday, boys and girls, and welcome to the first of The Blog’s Small College Nationals (now called the ITA Oracle Cup) preview articles!

Power Rankings, 10/5

Welcome back to a blog favorite, Power Rankings!

We have information now from ITAs and can form initial power rankings based on the individual performances that…

New England ITA Recap

Happy Wednesday, boys and girls. Last weekend was the biggest of the fall in terms of DIII action, and some of the older other writers have gotten a jump start on recapping the weekend’s events. I’m going to follow CHB’s report card style system and hand out some mid-term grades. D3Regional has been kind enough…

New England ITA Preview

Happy Wednesday, boys and girls. The ITAs are the best time of the fall from a tennis perspective, and there is no tournament field deeper than the New England ITA. Boasting the top nine teams in the region, and five of the top eight in the country, this is hands down the most talented ITA…

Middlebury Invitational Recap

Happy Tuesday, boys and girls! It’s decorative gourd season, which means ITAs are almost here…so I thought I would do something other than give you an ITA preview.

The Season is Here! ASouth’s 10 Burning Questions (and More!)

WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE! There are bloggers about, waiting to kick off another DIII season, and they are waiting for my cue. While I debate what my next show to watch is going to be (I’m taking suggestions peeps), I’ve decided that I’d turn over a new leaf this year. That means ALL…

NESCAC Quarterfinal Preview(s)

Happy NESCACs Eve, boys and girls. There has been a lot of chatter about Tufts being left out of NESCACs and I, along with some of the other writers, have made our feelings clear on the issue, but it’s time to look ahead to the tournament itself! We have two rivalry quarterfinals ahead of us, which should…
