    I don't think Clemson will miss the tournament, there are enough equal level ACC teams on the schedule to get a decent amount of wins that will keep Clemson in the top 40. I will say though that wins need to come soon, a win over SC or Auburn is a must. And if Clemson misses the tournament it will certainly be worrisome as this is the last year of Harrington. I do think Clemson should be slightly better as a program. Not every year, but a top 15 finish should come every few years and that hasn't happened in quite a while.

    Vs the Gamecocks tomorrow in Columbia.

    Clemson won 4-1 last season

    1: Harrington vs Pinheiro
    These two played 3 years ago at #5 when both were freshmen. Pinheiro won that one. However I think Harrington will take this match.

    2: Augusto vs Adams
    Based on form I expect Adams to win this one

    3: Ansari vs Koch
    Ansari beat koch 7-6 6-2 last year. He played well during the kickoff weekend. Based on that and the matchup from last year, I'll take Ansari to win.

    4: Johnson vs Schafer
    Schafer will win

    5: Drake vs O'Keefe
    Slight edge to O'Keefe but could go either way. Expect a 3 setter

    6: Sanon vs Mayronne
    A 50/50 match. Really hard to pick a winner.


    Doubles isn't even worth analyzing. Complete 50/50 proposition.

    I am somewhat expecting a loss. But it's a match that Clemson really needs to win to get a ranking boost for when those computer polls come out

    SC swaps Adams and Pinheiro. Adams has beaten Harrington in the past and Augusto beat Pinheiro last year

    Well the scoreboard showed that Augusto Don the first set 7-5 but now it says Pinheiro won it 7-6.

    Seriously, hiring competent people to track scores

    Quote displeased with the way this match turned out. Not just the fact that Clemson lost, which to be honest I was somewhat expecting but the way it happened.

    Lost a tight doubles point. Ok that's not bad

    Singles was a disaster. Ansari and Augusto both fell apart after good first sets. They both lost momentum and didn't do anything to regain it, just let Pinheiro and Koch blast them Into oblivion. Then Johnson got another beatdown to start his season.

    After the loss was already confirmed Harrington beat Adams. Ok yay.

    Drake and Sanon won their first sets and I was thinking ok well at least this is a positive sign, these guys haven't given up and it shows that this team has more depth now. But just as these thoughts occurred both of them blew leads and eventually blew their matches just like Ansari and Augusto. A pathetic end to an overall pathetic performance.

    It's on though because the team can feel better about themselves next weekend with 3 tomato cans coming to town

    Never Mind. Usc is much better as ever right now and Clemson is just a little down. Never overcame the graduation of both madens...

    Drake playing above Johnson today. Not sure if that means anything or not. Johnson has had a dreadful start to the year.

    Sanon also playing above Johnson. Hmm. Maybe Johnson at 6 next week vs Auburn? Could be a smart move

    Some hubris has made this a fairly close match.

    Because Clemson does not have a single significant win this far, at Auburn tomorrow is pretty much a must win. Need to get a win like this before the first computer rankings come out so as to not be completely behind the 8 ball and fall somewhere really low.

    Clemson has beat Auburn the last two seasons, including 6-1 last year. In order to win Friday, Augusto,Johnson and Ansari must play better. The middle of the lineup will be key.

    When was this match scheduled? It seems as though Auburn has played Clemson and Ga Tech in the same weekend for the past three years (assuming it was the same weekend of ITA Indoors). The prior year Auburn qualified for Indoors when they won the regional held at Ga Tech.

    Looks like Johnson has thrown in the towel after failing to close out his match

    Clemson faced auburn in the blue gray classic 3 years ago and the coaches agreed that they liked the matchup so Clemson agreed to go to Auburn the next year. Auburn returned the trip last year. I guess they decided to do another home and home starting this year

    Thanks for the info. So, do you think that match was scheduled at the start of the season (and just assumed that the teams would not qualify for ITA Indoors) or scheduled after they were eliminated in regional?

    It really is. Need to get 2 wins at minimum and probably 3. And it can't be wins vs Princeton or Boise State, it needs to be wins vs Miss State, USF or Texas Tech. If we cannot get at least two important wins in blue-gray then Clemson will not make the NCAAs

    It definitely needs to improve. I'm not sure why the focus has been shifted to transfers in the last few years (Augusto,Johnson,Sanon and Arturo Pinazo coming in next year). I think the focus should be on some better international players, like the Madens or a Gerardo Meza. If Arkansas can get a Micolani then Clemson should be able to get a player of that caliber from overseas as well.

    A lot of effort was put into the recruitment of Ansari.

    Won't be a good sign if GT beats Auburn today. But would also be good as GT would move up in the rankings meaning that a Clemson win over GT would mean more if it happened.

    Blue gray draw is out

    Alabama at 2 on Friday. It goes without saying that that is a must win match. Miss State will probably beat Princeton, Miss State in the next round is also a must win.
    I wish Clemson had been paired on the same side with Texas Tech or USF, better chances for good ranking wins, but could face one of those in the 3rd match.
    Wins over Alabama or Boise State would be useless.

    Alabama is the worst team that we could have been matched with. They are a worthless win because they will drop out of the top 75 next week and have the ability to possible beat Clemson. Princeton would have been better as they will have a better ranking and also not have much of a chance of beating Clemson

    The Blue gray is really down this year. Not same Quality any more. Boise Clemson Alabama miss state all ve down years. USF great roster but not clicking right now. Auburn was better before two seasons.

    Do they have that many courts available? The starting times for matches are only two hours apart. I wonder if the second set of matches has started at all.

    EDIT: Looks like they have live scores from Lagoon Park and not from Montgomery Park. Must have 12 courts at each park.

    It looks like they are playing at two places. Lagoon and O'Connor. The matches at lagoon have live scoring right now while the two at O'Connor have nothing. Also no news from blue/gray twitter, Clemson twitter or Alabama twitter

    Clemson and Alabama are in an all out brawl right now, currently 2-1 Tigers. Our warmup will start once this match finishes up.

    Ivy League representing. Harvard's twitter is one of my favorites to follow during matches...not afraid to call someone out for a bad call or whatnot. Columbia's does a really good job too.
