Hello all.

Here marks the beginning of a somewhat daunting endeavor — an unofficial, independent blog that will aim to cover, analyze, muse, and diagnose all things UC Irvine athletics.

So why start a blog on a mid-major that can’t draw their own students who have free admission, and is collectively overshadowed by just about every other DI school in Southern California? Partly because I miss writing about my ‘Eaters, and partly because I truly believe that UCI is on the rise.

Hopefully, some of you Anteater fans will fulfill the “Nation” moniker and hopefully this blog will be worthy of your following. Stay tuned. Rip’ Em.
