    women's team starts today too. Northwestern wildcats are supposedly favorite in this one

    Don't see any live scoring on the Indiana/Minnesota match - should have started 40 minutes ago.

    Minnesota takes the doubles at least according to the livescore page

    The live stats genie just reversed it - IU takes the point

    The score at 6 hasn't changed in over 30 minutes.

    Chalk up another failure for college tennis. There is no possible way the casual sports fan would be interested in following something this inept.

    The conference tournaments are failing so far. It's probably because its people who haven't done it all year.

    It's a conundrum when following something I love causes so much angst, and when I realise how much happier I am when its off season. These are the days I wonder why I follow college at all. If the people in charge don't give a @@@@, why should I?

    MN - Ind match going down to the wire once again. Though not sure what's happening with #6 singles. Either the updates are lagging behind or just a really long match.

    He was at 3-4, then 5-4, then 6-5. The minimum service break situation would be on serve now, but who knows. I don't see a server arrow. :)

    McCoy wins it we think 7-6. That must have been a 3 hour match.

    Great win, Matt McCoy is a local kid who committed to Bradley then came here when the coach left before the season. Very happy for him.

    Interesting lineup for Ohio State if they stick with it - Steinbach from 6 to 3, Diaz at 4, Callahan at 5, and Metka down to 6.

    Odd for Metka to be at 6. I would think his bigger game would be more dangerous to higher position players.

    Northwestern take the doubles which could prove to be huge

    That intrigued me as well, we'll see if it gets changed as the single's portion plays out however...
    I had heard an unsubstantiated report that Metka has been dealing with some injuries, and wonder with the different lineup rules in the Big Ten, and especially the incident with the Illini loss via lineup challenge at Penn State, wonder if Tucker may be playing things safe against possible lineup challenges.

    Doubles point finished 30 minutes ago in both matches yet no singles updates yet. Come on Michigan State get it going.

    Indoor venue can accommodate both of the quarterfinal doubles simultaneously at 10 am.
    will need to adjust for the single's portion indoors or if weather cooperates move outdoors.

    Michigan State has a nice indoor facility.One of the best ones I have seen. They should have a better team

    I try to get people on a Clemson forum interested in the tennis team. People who usually only care about football and slightly basketball. It's very hard when I have to keep explaining live scoring mistakes and no-shows

    Looks like they are only playing 4 singles matches at a time.

    So each quarterfinal match is allotted 4 courts, for 1,2,4,5 singles?

    MSU has 8 indoor courts. Good idea to split it 4 and 4 rather than give all 6 to one match at a time. Also I kinda like the 1,2,4,5 instead of 1-4 which favors teams that are top heavy.

    Ohio State better watch out. If they were playing Penn State they would be screwed. It would be hilarious if their 10-year home winning streak ended with a Penn State whiny Big10 over turn.

    That would have to wait for next year. The Big 10 tourney is at Michigan State, so the home winning streak is safe for now (assuming no one upsets them in the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament).

    How did Michigan get away with putting Vlad Stefan at #4, when he played 1/2 most of year.

    Anyone know what happened PSU-Mich? Scoreboards showing 3-1 to Michigan and tourney home page says Michigan play Illinois tomorrow.

    Michigan won 4-2 (assuming no protest).

    Looks like an edge to Ohio State. Illinois would need to win 2-3-4 and then pick up either the doubles point or #1 singles. More likely, Ohio State wins.
