State of the Region Address: West

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…

Stag Hen X-Factors

STAG HEN X-FACTORS AS: Why am I writing this? I don’t know. Considering I have no teams of the 8 in the tournament, I should be enjoying a damn vacation at this point. But no, I’m stuck in 18 inches of snow talking to D3NE. Guess I’ll pass this off now. TOWEL WHIPPING NE: Ok,…
