    Doubles
    this was the first college meet ive been to so i didnt know what to expect.
    the doubles was really fast
    they had really fast hands but also with a very soft touch
    they were pounding the ball
    the #1s for OSU had slower seves but made up fo it with there quick feet
    i really only watched the #1s
    UI won the dubs point

    Singles
    this was a whole different game
    i watched Ryan Rowe for UI he was good but lost because he lost focus
    the # 2s for both teams i thought was better then the #1s
    they had such long rallies and were pounding the ball
    it was entertaining
    Ruban G. for UI was amazing killer FH
    the #3 match was wierd
    in the first set the guy from OSU shamked a shot and it was in on the other side. so the guy hit
    the OSU guy was facing the fence
    The coach yelled at him and set " Stephen your shot was in!!!!!"
    Stephen won the math in 3

    Other
    i was amazed to see how hard they hit
    the serve placement was awsome
    there was a lot of " cmons!" " Here we go Buckeyes!"
    very team oriented

    Rackets:
    for you gear junkes like me
    3 k 95s
    2 pure drives
    2 areo storms
    1 microgel radical
    1 flexpoint instinct (surpising)
    4 pure storms/pure controll ( couldnt tell)
    1 POG
    1 Prince diablo
    1 yonex
    1 flexpiont prestige

    His brother John isn't that bad either. Plays here at Michigan State. But Matt had a broken bone in his ankle this year. I cant see how Matt played in the dubs. When OSU was in E. Lansing Matt didn't play and went to the hospital and had a broken bone in his ankle. His ankle was pretty screwed up then. But OSU is a great team. They killed us 6-1. The big ten is getting very good! UofM has an awesome team. Jung is a very good player. Indiana and Wisconsin both have very good teams. What we had 6 teams qualify for the NCAA championships...that is pretty good if you ask me.
