Bracketology Edition #2 – Two Brackets!

It’s Bracketology time again! Since we have already been through one round of the famous Bracketology, I will not be repeating the numerous rules and regulations that we have come to expect from the NCAA.  For an update on rules, please visit the Bracketology Edition #1 here. This time around, we’ve done TWO different scenarios…

This Week in West: April 14 – …

West region fans, it deeply saddened me to punt last week’s West segment to Regional (who did a great job, btw, give the guy a hand), especially The Battle of Sixth Street looming, but I had a hard time telling the bossman, “yo, I know you pay me to do this, but I gotta take…

4/14 Power Rankings (M)

This is a friendly reminder to always save your work, especially when working in a terrible website like WordPress.  In my effort to post Men’s and Women’s Power Rankings at the same time, I got the Men’s Power Rankings erased.  Since I am upset and have other work to do, I will not be providing…

THE Bracketology, Edition #1

With March Madness over, you’d think Bracketology was over right?  Nah, it’s just getting started!  I’m jamming out to Kendrick Lamar right now so you know I’m going to go hard on this Bracketology like Wade Heerboth goes hard in Pedialyte Pong.  Shout-out to the new account @D3TennisBro for adding some much needed humor in…

4/7 Power Rankings (M)

Here we have the latest chapter in our division3tennis.com Power Rankings.  In this chapter, old stalwarts have risen to beat previously overrated foes and new challengers have joined the top 30. Regional biases have been called out and some have been thrown out the window, but not all have been eliminated.  However, one team still…

#PoolCWeek – A Historical Look

It’s time for a history lesson!! As you see in the POTW article, mid-March is not only the time for March Madness (although the Madness is over for me) but also time for me to start writing crazy articles like Pool C and Bracketology.  I personally love both of those things especially because I only…

3/31 Power Rankings (M)

I’m tired of the old “Up on a Tuesday” cliche, so I’m just going to say this.  Power Rankings are now out, because it is a Tuesday. Fun fact: the bloggers were actually thinking about doing an April Fool’s Power Rankings for you guys, because for some reason D3West is obsessed with April Fools.  I…

3/24 Power Rankings (M)

What’s up, folks! It’s been exactly a week since our last edition of Power Rankings… which means that it’s time for some more Power Rankings! Repetitive, right?  Anyways, we’ve had some good discussion on Rankings in general the past few times out and some more people are joining in on the party.  Thanks to all…

This Week in West: March 23 – Whenever

Friends, fans, and well-wishers, I want to apologize for providing what I would consider to be a sub-par blogging experience to my West region teams. As much as I love DIII tennis, sometimes life gets in the way. Alas, it is time for my fortnightly State Of The Region article. I will do a brief…

3/17 Power Rankings (M)

Club was going up yesterday, so unfortunately Power Rankings will be going up on a Wednesday this week.  This may or may not have been a blessing in disguise, because we had two huge results last week that definitely affected the power rankings.  Actually, only one of them really did but there were two good…
