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…

Power Rankings, 5/4

I’ve spent most of my morning listening to the podcast with AVZ and Coach Browning of Emory, which is why these Power Rankings are going out a little bit late. If you would like to listen to the podcast, which you should, feel free to click the link below. Power Rankings aren’t going anywhere. Van…

NESCAC Seeding Rapid Reaction

Happy NESCAC seeding day, boys and girls. Usually that would not be worthy of a greeting, but today is different. Today, the NESCAC seeding committee has stirred the pot with a hot take of its own. The following are the seeds for this weekend’s conference tournament. #1 Wesleyan, #2 Middlebury, #3 Amherst, #4 Bowdoin, #5 Bates, #6 Williams. You can…

Pool C Update #4 – Pre NESCAC

DAMN ASOUTH, BACK AT IT AGAIN WITH ANOTHER POOL C ARTICLE! I took the weekend off to spend some time with all the other people in the world that matter to me, so that is why you didn’t see me all too much over the weekend. Just because I wasn’t there doesn’t mean a lot didn’t…

NESCAC SCENARIOS (Sunday Edition)

As promised, I’m back to give a quick run down of the possible NESCAC scenarios after today’s results. #4 Amherst def. #9 Williams 7-2, #5 Wesleyan def #18 Bates 8-1, and #7 Bowdoin def. #15 Tufts 5-4. Now that Saturday’s matches are taken care of, the number of hypothetical scenarios has been cut down dramatically. The matches with…

NE Weekend Preview/NESCAC SCENARIOS!

WARNING: What I’m about to attempt is a highly dangerous. Side effects include headaches, nausea, and angry comments about possible scenarios that I missed. Yes, there are still so many NESCAC scenarios that I’m sure I will miss something as I try to sift through all the muck that is the top of the conference…

4/27 Power Rankings

Another edition of Power Rankings are here, and this week we FINALLY had some movement in the Top 10! With a ton of upsets (check the ticker bruh!) this past week as well as the UAA Tournament completing, the top 10 got shuffled around a bit. We had a huge upset that we were able…

Power Rankings, 4/21

I’m a bit upset about getting these out late, not only because I don’t like being late (actually I don’t really care) but the fact that I missed out on 4/20 Power Rankings jokes. We could have given a few teams that 420Boost, but alas, we are at a regular day now, so that means…

NE Tuesday Recap

#29 (ITA-34) Brandeis def. #17 (ITA-22) MIT 7-2 http://www.brandeisjudges.com/sports/mten/2016-17/releases/20170418wvgm4t How it happened:  @D3Northeast Brandeis can sweep MIT and take a couple of random positions but probably not. — d3AtlanticSouth (@d3AtlanticSouth) April 18, 2017 Somehow this was oddly prophetic and bulletin board material at the same time. Good on D3AS for his method, but after a…

UAA vs. NESCAC By the Numbers!

I know all of you are reeling from this morning’s blog reveal, and shoutout to D3West aka CHB for his years of service here at the Blog. It certainly has been a good run so far (and still going) and I am proud to say that I’ve blogged alongside him for the better part of…
