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.

A quick look at Tufts’ spring break

Psssst, hey you over there, remember Tufts? Yeah, Tufts. The team that both lost to MIT and beat Bowdoin in the span of about 48 hours at the end of last year? Well they’re playing tennis again for the first time in 2017. I know right, who knew! Luckily we’ve got you covered, and I’m here…

Power Rankings, 3/16

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…

And while I sincerely apologize that we haven’t done a great job covering it the past six months, rest assured that I will be periodically updating you before or after important tournaments/matches.
