    Looks like USC vs Stanford semifinals. This could be interesting. Denis Lin should be healthy by then.

    haha. Stanford will lose to Texas. Mark it down. You actually better hope Lin stays hurt, he's a sure loss.

    Texas isn't even seeded. Stanford is the top seed in 1st 2 rounds. + Cardinal has always done well in the past against Texas

    Stanford is a joke seed at 11, they should be lucky to even be a host. I have Texas beating them as well.

    love to watch Lin play but Ho is playing great tennis...Ho was playing #5 at Ojai ,but realistically he should be #6 ..
    the Stanford team as a whole is peaking out right now.. I hope they do well and get some lucky wins .. who knows...Fedace predictions may go a long way ..

    Not a threat in sight for the Dagws. I would actually be stunned if we dropped one point vs FSU,UNC or Pepperdine. Beatdowns coming

    I looked at the sabre. It's hilarious. The Cav fans were happy they got UGA in their draw rathe than USc or UCLA. They will find out howw wrong they are and just how much tougher we are in the Dawg Pound. That is if they can even beat Kentucky.

    I agree it's nice to see some more balance across early round matchups but Notre Dame has been sent to Ohio state for the first two rounds 4 out of the past 5 years

    Are you saying he gave more time talking about teams like that? I think it's good that they do that. The top teams don't need much talking up. Most people are very familiar with teams like USC, UGA, Duke, etc. Talk up the teams that not many people know much about, so we can learn a bit more about them.

    Don't be silly there. A&M has 10 players on the roster (really 9 as one is way below level). Texas has 10 players on the roster (all have played in multiple team matches this year).

    TopDawg I noticed that you picked NC State to beat Washington. I personally don't think there is anyway that happens. NC State is not that good of a team really. Washington has been underperforming but I still think they are far better.

    Washington could be a sleeper, has the potential to take out top 10 schools.

    It's so obvious, that why don't you just ask the mods to change your screenname back to Fedace. I mean, they even must know by now.

    You are so strange. I am not even federer fan. jeeess. Stanford is merely one of many teams i talk about. I actually like Texas's chances this weekend. but due to home court advantage, i give the nodd to Stanford Cardinal.

    Texas Tech will beat Cal. I would actually be pretty surprised if Cal won

    Looking forward to some tennis at Stanford this weekend. I am anxious to see if Stanford can get through this regional. Many people that are posting think Texas will get through but I think Santa Clara might surprise a few people. I am hoping to see Stanford and Santa Clara play Sunday, with Stanford moving on.

    I just can't see SC getting past Texas. Texas lineup is just too deep up and down the lineup. It will truly be like Verdasco going up against Nadal for sure.

    Top dawg, bulldogs have really gone all out on the webcam department. these guys really take their tennis seriously. this is nice to see when all the other division 1 teams spend all their money on football and basketball.

    Indiana takes the dubs point from Louisville and is up a set at 1 & 4 and a break at 2 & 5.

    Baylor/Memphis still up for grabs - 2-1 BU though BU about to win at 2 which would make it 3-1. Memphis up at 4 and 5 and they may push 6 into a 3rd and what could be match decider.

    Baylor pulling away at #6 - barring big turnaround Baylor will escape with the win over Memphis.

    Then when the host plays second, all of those are going to be 4-0.

    Travelled down to KY to watck, IU beat Louisville in a very tense nervy match. Good win, Kentucky will be a bit much I fear tomorrow.

    Illini take the doubles point. I haven't had many chances to say that this year so it feels good.
