I got on this morning like I always do.  I always wait until I've had a few sips of coffee and checked the world news.  Of course, in my head, I knew this was coming.  But it still made me sad when I got on and saw the shuffle had taken place.  :'(

Hello darkness, my old friend.  I guess it's time to catch up on other hobbies and then proceed to drop them in an instant again once football coverage ramps back up.

Giving credit where credit is due, it was FCGriz who first bumped it.

D3hoops was, after all, the founding site for d3sports - seems more natural to have them at the top! ;D

I find easily offended people rather offensive!

Statistics are like bikinis; what they reveal is interesting, what they hide is essential.

Yes, Baseball!

The West Region has had 4 of the last 6 National Champions, one team from each of the 4 conferences.  In fact, last year's champion, UT-Tyler was the eliminated in the ASC tourney semifinals. They were thought to be the last Pool C team taken. They were shipped out-of-region to the Central where they went 6-1. Then they beat Texas Lutheran from the SCAC is the national championship finals.

Talk about balanced and tough! That is the West Region.  Follow the West Region teams on D3baseball.com and the message boards.
