This Week In West: March 1 – March 8

As one commenter pointed out in the Power Rankings article, we bloggers need to get back to doing what we do best: butchering predictions and angering people with our analysis. Because the other writers are basically covering the West region matches by previewing and recapping Spring Breaks, the onus of responsibility falls on me to…

Fall Nationals – A Joint Preview

Fall ITA Nationals technically start in 40 minutes with the play-in matchup of Hewlin (Whitman) and Krull (Trinity TX), so this preview kind of needs to go out.  I’m getting real nervous here writing this paragraph because I’m scared the commenters will behead me and burn me at the stake if this goes out at…
