    Yes he should strongly consider this grad school in Palo Alto: The Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. http://www.itp.edu/

    If that doesn't work out. He should just hang out in East Palo Alto and build his street cred.

    You want him to give the racquet to Rick or just have him talk to Rick to get the info?

    Dr. Fedace, unlike some, I have contacts in the tennis world. Some of the players on the Chabot College team that I coach have preferred player deals with Dunlop due to the fact that I have a relationship with the Dunlop rep. The boy that the poster was referring to is one of my players. I would imaigne that Dunlop will mold a new racket, not smelt one.

    I find it incredible that a physician is unaware of the difference. Especially one with a "Standford" undergrad degree. Was your degree in broken English?

    After all, we are all aware of his penchant for smelly, hot blondes. Perhaps he has smelt them in the past and this was just a freudian slip?

    We should be tough again. Fairly strong 1-4 and 1 & 2 dubs.

    I'm playing for College of the Desert this year. It's a really solid Div.III team, winning the State Championship several times. Most of the team members are from South America, and very good.

    It isn't, Goob. They are the best JC team in California. The team I help coach, Chabot in Hayward, played them for the state JC title two years in a row. All foreign players most of the time. We used to say that they were the best team money could buy! Lots of wealthy boosters.

    ok that is what I thought.

    Interestingly I played with one of COD's former female players that went to the semifinals(I think) in the CC state championships. She teaches part time at a center in Palm Desert. She was telling me how strong of a program they were. I didn't realize though at the time they were JC, I thought they were NAIA or small school.

    I wonder how they get these foreign players to go there? Can you give scholarships for JC? I thought the tuition was very low.

    The tuition for a foreign student is extremely high compared to an in house state kid. I believe that they have "sponsors" to take care of those annoying little details like tuition, books and food.

    No scholarships are given for JC teams. The tuition is actually extremely high for foreign students, they have to pay 3x or 4x more for classes. I'm not sure how they got to COD either, they are good enough to play for any D2 or many D1 schools. Maybe the coach has some connections, I don't know... It's just my 1st semester and the season doesn't start until Feb.

    EDIT: In my previous post, I meant to say that it's like a really solid D3 team. Sorry for the confusion.

    BTW, besides me, there's only 1 other local team member. Everyone else is foreign.

    You're probably referring to Evan Jurgensen. He's kind of short, looks Asian, and has a 1-hander. I never had the chance to play him, and he transferred to UC Santa Barbara this year. Very good player, he played #1 for COD.

    College of the Desert = COD = Cash On Delivery = consistently strong top team :twisted::twisted:

    Just what my teammates and I referred to them when I played for GCC in 99.

    hey JoeyG. I'm at De Anza college and we played chabot a couple times. All good matches if you can remember. What do you think of our 17 year old #1 player? Haha.
