UTR Analysis of the Women’s Elite 8 and Singles Individual Tournament

Hello fans, as I did last year, I’d like to get an article out to you with some analysis of the NCAA Team Tournament (Elite 8) as well as the NCAA Singles Tournament. I’m going to be using the UTR (Universal Tennis Rating) system. UTR is increasing in popularity as a tool, and is proving…

2016 Women’s Post-season Blog Awards

What’s up people?  So many people have asked for more women’s articles that I feel like my life has meaning.  I’m here to fill that void for you.  This is one of my favorite articles I’ve written cuz I get to commemorate the great seasons so many players have had.  These competitors have sacrificed all…

The Guru’s Elite 8 Recap

A recap of the eight teams that participated this week. I’m still speechless 48 hours later… Johns Hopkins – I don’t think the Blue Jays have received enough credit for reaching four Final Eights in the past five years. That’s something teams like Bowdoin, Kenyon, Williams and Trinity (TX) have failed to do. Due to…

2016 Women’s Quartefinal Preview

What’s up people? Long time no blog.  While the women’s side of the blog hasn’t been nearly as lively this year as we’ve hoped this is the NCAA tournament.  I have to some quick thoughts on these elite eight matchups and maybe some thoughts on the week to come.  I’ve gotta try to get this…

A Look at Past Final Fours

FinalFour

With the matches beginning shortly, I wanted to review the historical Final Fours and see what trends are noticeable as to which teams are winning. Given the Indoors trends article I did being way off in predicting this year, let me remind everyone to not put too much weight on what has happened historically. Below…

ASouth’s NCAA “What to Expects”

I’m back here on the Amtrak and I guess it’s time to write another article.  Normally I’d be browsing Facebook or something but since the internet is basically run by a fat hamster running on a hamster wheel, this means that I have to do something not on the webs.  Or, I have to do…

NCAA Quarterfinal Preview: #6 Wash U vs. #3 Middlebury

NCAA Quarterfinal Preview: #6 Wash U vs #3 Middlebury D3NE: I continually underestimate Wash U. D3Central continually underestimates Wash U. Almost everybody in the world underestimates Wash U except for The Guru, Coach Follmer, and probably D3Dad. They have had one of the more remarkable in-season turnarounds in program history, and have made yet another…

ASouth’s MEGA NCAA Regional Recap

20160513_171703-1

I give the people what they want.  While we are all gearing up for the Elite 8 Matches and sending out preview after preview, I wanted to take a look back at all the different things that happened in the NCAA Regional this past weekend.  About 50 teams participated this weekend, so it would make…

5/19 Power Rankings – NCAA Style

hop

We’re a day late on this, mostly because my colleagues have working behind the scenes to get some Elite 8 Previews for you all and I have been working at a Regional Recap (that sounds weird) for all of those small teams out there.  Additionally, we’ve been trying to come together for our annual “Superlatives…

Upset Alert – Elite 8 Edition

It’s Elite 8 week here at the blog, and that means more articles from us!  Each writer will be bringing you in-depth previews of the specific matches, but today, I wanted to once again channel my inner-underdog self.  We have four great matches on 5/23, and for each match, I will take a look at…
