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…

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…

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…

Swarthmore Invitational Report Cards

Intro: Just because it’s INDOORS WEEK (!!!!) doesn’t mean that we’ll be forgoing our non-Indoors-related DIII tennis coverage. There were some great matches this past weekend in Pennsylvania, as the middle of the Atlantic South started their seasons with a West region visitor crashing the party without bringing any In-n-Out with them. Rude. Box Scores:…

Swarthmore Invitational Preview

Last year, the Garnet made the trek out to Walla Walla and ended up on the wrong end of a 7-2 drubbing. This year, Whitman is bringing half their team and two juicy indirect wins with them across three time zones to play Swat, CNU, and Haverford. After benefitting from perhaps the biggest home court advantage…

2017 Season Preview: #26 Swarthmore Garnet

I am happy to say that I will be finishing my season previews after this.  This allows me to totally prepare for the fantasy draft, which we will be completing on Monday, January 16th.  Shoutout to Martin Luther King, Jr.  Now that I’m on the topic of the draft, let me say this.  If you…

2017 Inaugural Power Rankings

They said we were dead. They said we couldn’t do it anymore. But here we are, giving you the inaugural power rankings of 2017. Not only that, we’re giving you a bit of new flavor this year. We have Regional AS and NEC on board, and we have a new writer in D3Midwest as well.…

BLOG CHECK IN + Bonus Mary Wash ITA Belated Recap

I’m restarting this article on 11/29/2016, because you haven’t heard from us in probably two months now.  Let’s go through a quick questionnaire on why this has happened. WHEN: Yes, it has been two months since our last article. WHY: The team needed a break. We (surprisingly) actually did a lot of stuff this past…
