    Indiana used to do a pizza deal a few years ago too with I think $5 all you can eat pizza at a selected mens tennis game. A bunch of frat kids came and were trashed and dancing on the courts between points and they had to call the cops, the promotion went away lol.

    Apparently Ohio State team staff members were clapping wood blocks together at the Texas A&M match. That's a new one.

    It's about time that Kentucky flopped Murra and Minc.

    The past weekend for Stanford was tough to look at. 2 loses to USC and UCLA with a combined match record of 1-13. :cry:

    Kentucky needs to shake up the middle of their lineup gomez and murra just aren't cutting it. They haven't won a match all year against a ranked team. When your #3 and #4 are 0-10 there is no way you're going to go far into the playoffs.

    They should move Minc up to 3. Slide Gomez down to 4 and put Murra at 5 or 6.

    Minc up to 3, Gomez to 4, Roberts to 5 and try Lai at 6.

    That's how the Wildcats should roll in Seattle.

    Vanderbilt 4 Memphis 2

    Andfor, I caught the singles portion of yesterday's Vanderbilt/Memphis match and have some video of a few random points mainly at 1, 3, and 5 singles if you want to check it out. Vandy was playing without Gonzales Austin so everyone was playing up a spot but aside from 2 and 3 singles Vandy was stronger. I think Vrnak won every point I got on tape against Rhys "Unforced Error Machine" Johnson. Grimal hits kind of a strange ball - tries to hit over it almost - not a ton of pace. I didn't watch much of Glennon at 2 but he was winning most games at love.

    VU-Memphis Singles Results
    1. No. 22 Ryan Lipman (Vanderbilt) def. No. 73 Joe Salisbury (Memphis) 7-5, 7-6(10-8 )
    2. Connor Glennon (Memphis) def. Jeff Offerdahl (Vanderbilt) 6-1, 6-1
    3. Lukas Vrnak (Memphis) def. Rhys Johnson (Vanderbilt) 6-3, 6-3
    4. Marc van der Merwe (Vanderbilt) def. David O’Hare (Memphis) 6-4, 6-4
    5. Kris Yee (Vanderbilt) def. Johnny Grimal (Memphis) 6-3, 6-3
    6. Anton Kovrigin (Vanderbilt) vs. David O’Leary (Memphis) 7-6(7-3), unfinished

    VU-Memphis Doubles Results
    1. Lipman/van der Merwe (Vanderbilt) def. Glennon/De Zutter (Memphis) 8-2
    2. Eswaran/Kovrigin (Vanderbilt) vs. O’Hare/Salisbury (Memphis) 6-7
    3. Offerdahl/Johnson (Vanderbilt) def. O’Leary/Grimal (Memphis) 8-5

    Order of Finish
    Singles: 2,3,5,4,1
    Doubles: 1,3

    Ole Miss added a player to the roster that will be eligible immediately - Adriaan De Toit from South Africa. Had a high ITF Jr. Ranking 258.

    What's up with Illinois (current #17)?

    They've lost twice to Tennessee (current #13), once to Tulsa (#17)

    They've beaten both #5 Duke and #6 Kentucky.

    Seems to me that outside the Top 4 or 5 teams, there is a big block of 15-20 teams that basically can all beat each other based on the matchup. Though, maybe that's the case every year.

    Illinois still has matches with USC and UVA. Love the bold scheduling.

    I think UW wins fairly easily. Ducks haven't played anyone yet so that 8-0 record looks better than it is.

    Should be a close match, is Dom Maden playing? I'm leaning Auburn if Dom doesn't play. 5-2 or 4-3. If Auburn get dubs they'll likely win.

    Looks like Clemson up an early break on 3 courts...winning 4 singles will be tough.

    Usc/ucla

    Doubles lineup is the same as the last meeting though it appears UCLA has moved Clay Thompson up to #4 singles and dropped Dennis Mkrtchian down to 5. USC has the same singles lineup. Smart move by Billy because Mkrtchian wasn't going to beat Hanfmann though Thompson may. That could be enough to push UCLA over the top.

    Last Weeks Result:
    #2 USC 4, #3 UCLA 3
    DOUBLES
    (1) Giron/Novikov (UCLA) def. #48 Hanfmann/Sarmiento (USC) - 8-4
    (2) Puget/Sell (UCLA) def. De Vroome/Quiroz (USC) - 8-2
    (3) Gomez/Johnson (USC) def. Brigham/Mkrtchian (UCLA) - 8-4
    UCLA wins doubles point.
    Order of finish: 2, 3, 1
    SINGLES
    (1) #58 Dennis Novikov (UCLA) def. #12 Ray Sarmiento (USC) - 1-6, 6-3, 6-4
    (2) #10 Emilio Gomez (USC) def. #13 Marcos Giron (UCLA) - 2-6, 7-5, 6-2
    (3) #23 Roberto Quiroz (USC) def. #42 Adrien Puget (UCLA) - 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4)*
    (4) #94 Yannick Hanfmann (USC) def. #55 Dennis Mkrtchian (UCLA) - 6-2, 6-4
    (5) Clay Thompson (UCLA) def. #109 Max de Vroome (USC) - 2-6, 6-4, 6-4
    (6) #48 Eric Johnson (USC) def. Karue Sell (UCLA) - 1-6, 7-5, 6-4

    That was crazy and also notice that in the 5 matches that went 3 sets the person that won the 1st set lost each of them. That's why swapping Thompson/Mkrtchian makes sense at least for this one match today.

    Wait a second, there isn't a senior among USC's starting six? And only two juniors?:shock:

    I would have assumed that coming of of a 4-peat, there would be more seniors this year. I have no idea why, I'd think that. I guess I just assume that the regular flow of recruits, there are going to be two or three seniors every year. I know that there are one or two who aren't starting, but still.

    So, this is USC's "down" year? I do think Virginia will finally get their title, but USC and UCLA have already shown that they can compete, and then USC has every starter back next year? That's crazy.

    UCLA has every starter back next year except doubles specialist Alex Brigham.

    Georgia loses only KU Singh, but he is #1.

    Virginia loses Jarmere Jenkins at #1 and doubles specialist Julen Uriguen.

    I don't know if Florida has any seniors in the top six, do they? Ditto for Tennessee.

    Duke loses only Henrique Cunha, their #1.

    There are a lot of teams that lose zero or one from the top six singles. This is kind of a young year, for whatever reason.

    LSU/Texas Tech in rain delay - never got started. I get the same thing on San Diego/Boise. USD twitter says Boise took the doubles point.

    I didn't count him because while he may be a nice guy he sure didn't win many matches. I think he was like 3-10 last year at #6.

    Sell had won 3 straight and tied up Johnson at 4-4 in the 3rd but Johnson breaks and will serve for the match up 5-4. Mkrtchian was serving for it up 5-2 and got broke but broke back to win it 6-3.

    Eric Johnson finishes it so it's 3 all. Giron went up a break on Gomez but Gomez broke back and held. Giron now serving 3-4.

    Not sure about the serving arrow. It stayed on Eric Johnson, game after game. I think he held at 4-4 to make it 5-4, and then broke for the match. Otherwise he was up two breaks at 4-1 and was broken back twice in a row, which is less likely.

    Another ho-hum match between USC and UCLA.
