    I think Vanderbilt is way over ranked.

    I don't know about over ranked, but they are inconsistent for sure.

    Wondering how they'll play after the W over Kentucky last week

    Hey TogDawg,

    Did you realize that UGA will likely move up to #2 in the rankings with a win today?

    A long ways to go until seeding. Lots of variables in play across the country. And who knows what's going to happen at the SEC tourney

    Yeah that'd be nice to be at 2 and even better if we could get a 2 seed in the NCAAs - not that I think we're the 2nd best team out there.

    Very tight battle for the double's point in OSU vs. Illini.
    Buckeyes take a w at #3 doubles,
    A tiebreaker being played at #1
    On serve at #2.

    If I'm not mistaken Rola/Metka were down 5-3 on 3 before winning 5 straight games.

    Starting to see just a bit of a chance. Just a bit though.

    (Tarheels on left)
    No. 1 Hess-Olsen 4-6 Soto
    No. 2 Clark 6-0, 2-4 Flores
    No. 3 Vick 6-0, 2-2 Gonzalez
    No. 4 Parker 6-3, 1-0 Aly
    No. 5 Steiro 6-1, 4-3 Stancati
    No. 6 Gorez 5-5 Mauz

    Soto, Flores, Gonzalez, Mauz all need to step up.

    Illinois takes the tie breaker at #1 and #2 over OSU to capture the double's point heading into singles.
    Only the 2nd time in 27 matches that Bucks have dropped this point.
    Overall with the 2 losses the Buckeye 2013 double's record now drops to 69-5.

    Time to turn to the much-better performing women. #9 Canes going up against the #1 UNC Tarheels today.

    The Canes took No. 2 dubs, lead No. 3 dubs 6-2, trail No. 1 dubs 3-6.

    Looks like Ohio State dropping the hammer down in singles - wouldn't surprise me if this finishes 6-1 OSU

    Home court advantage may have walked out the door for UF. Literally. The old timer must have 9pm bed times. Place emptied out like the match was over. This third will go on for a while. Not much energy in the stands right now.

    Looks like Minc just went up a break too. They've been playing for right at 3 hours I believe and its 2-1 in the 3rd. Must be a lot of long grinding points.

    Baylor looking pretty strong right now as is Texas A&M. Both could have that 4th point on the board in the next 10 minutes

    Gators win it 4-3 with VOB taking it 6-4 in the 3rd. He came back from 4-2 down in that 3rd set.

    Grinding is his specialty, I feel for the chair official. He went 2.5 hrs in 2 sets against Ole Miss, make sure you have a comfy cushion for his matches

    wow Vandy must have checked out today, especially 1-3 and South Carolina is getting hot at the same time.

    Yeah that's an extremely disappointing effort from Vandy. I don't quite get what the coach was thinking with those doubles lineups - none of those pairings had played a match together this year. I don't see how Lipman and Austin can beat Rossi and Jomby then a week later combine for 5 games against Mihov and Adams. Florida will likely drill them on Sunday and just like that Vandy will have played its way out of hosting a regional.

    Saturday Schedule

    TCU could give Texas a good match - I know TCU is trying to get a big crowd out to Fort Worth for that match to try and break their record of almost 1500 against Texas A&M earlier this year. Utah could surprise Stanford too.

    Georgia Tech at #1 Virginia – Noon est – Livestats - Virginia 6-1
    #54 Arkansas at #20 LSU – 1pm est/Noon cst – Livestats - LSU 4-1
    #62 Tulane at #21 Tulsa – 1pm est/Noon cst – Livestats - Tulsa 7-0
    #23 Texas at #35 TCU – 2pm est/1pm cst – Livestats - Texas 4-3
    #32 Notre Dame at #47 Louisville – 2pm est – Livestats - Notre Dame 5-2
    #43 Oregon at #2 UCLA – 4pm est/1pm pst – Livestats - UCLA 7-0
    #31 Washington at #4 USC – 4pm est/1pm pst – Livestats - USC 6-1
    #73 Utah at #41 Stanford – 4pm est/1pm pst – LiveStats/Video - Stanford 5-2
    Arizona at #16 Cal – 4pm est/1pm pst – LiveVideo - Cal 7-0
    #38 San Diego at #7 Pepperdine – 6pm est/3pm pst - Livestats - Pepperdine 5-2

    Shocker - UK loses again for the ninth time this season

    Hard to tell if they suck or they've just realized that losing in the SEC is great for your ranking so they're trying to go down every match

    Top 30 team in my book, nothing more

    Heartbreaking loss for my Frogs... They're still sitting in the locker room in silence after I left.

    Great day for college tennis today though... Over 1,000 fans pouring into our tennis center for awesome tennis!
