You seem so pained, Dave, every time you talk about OWU.  I almost want to go back and watch those two games in December because they must have really been something.

Oh they were incredible, especially the Whitman game. That one was one of the best I've seen in person, period.

Just insane how they are 6-7 in their last 13. Just ... insane.

I was not surprised to hear Emory as a dubious pick...

Admittedly, I have been up and down and all over the place on the Eagles.

Last season, the Eagles had a win over (arguably) the best Rochester team in a long time, but they also had losses to the youngest UAA team ever in NYU along with a loss and overtime win over Brandeis.  They got MURDERED on the road at Rochester and Washington University.  And, finished the season with 8 losses.  I had them as my fourth or fifth place team in the UAA going in to this season before I was able to see the freshmen and I was surprised to see them in the D3Hoops.com pre-season rankings, though I do not pay much attention beyond the Central division.

This season, I took notice after they ran with Lipscomb until the final 2-3 minutes in a game that was arguably more impressive than the MIT exhibition with Harvard.  And I finally started to buy-in after the wins over Transy and IWU along with the 80-62 win over Rochester to start league play.  At the same time, I was willing to temper my concerns with the two non-conference losses because of the injury to Whit Rapp who is one of the best point guards in the nation (e.g. No. 3 in career assists among active players).

I was not surprised to see Carnegie Mellon and Case Western Reserve, and Chicago for that matter, challenge Emory, but the Tartans and Maroons did it twice.  This in a season in which the overall strength of the UAA is questionable (in 10 years, I have never seen the conference ranked so low by Massey).

I still go back and forth...

New top 25 out.

Cabrini got more votes than week 10, but not enough to get in the top 25. Maybe next week.

If D3H was a stock market (new fantasy game?) set by the polls, I would be buying Nebraska Wesleyan, the OAC, MIAC, and CCIW.  On the flip side, I would sell Emory, York, E. Connecticut, Lycoming, and Salem State.

... and yet they jumped six places in this week's poll, from #13 to #7. Go figure.

WUPHF... that might be the most epic of posts ... at least in quite some time.

Thanks Dave! Looking forward to the blog to see where you had Emory.  By the way, has there ever been a better season for Division III fans who love upsets, underdogs and parity?  What do you think Greg?
