    Slightly annoyed that Ohio State finished ahead of UGA, but in the end it doesn't really matter. Both lost in quarters and UGA had been ranked higher since they beat them. I know it's all about strength of opponent, and because Georgia was ranked higher in the tournament, their opponents were, by design, "weaker" than Ohio States.

    Oh well, like I said, doesn't matter. No one remembers anything besides who won the last match of the year anyway.

    It looks great to see Stanford University at 9. I hope it will stand in top 5 next time.

    If they stay in the top 25 that would be a successful year for them this year.

    I was going to be nice an say top 16 but I think you are right on track.

    Duke, with the addition of Semenzato, is going to be a very solid team. I would be shocked if they finished out of the top 5.

    UVA, USC, UCLA and UGA are all going to be strong, as usual.

    I believe UF will be back into the top 10, probably finish around 6 or 7.

    UF in the top 10 would be a miracle. We would need a couple phenoms to graduate HS early and enroll in January to be that high.

    Women at UF have a legit chance to 3-peat. Won't be easy as I see 5 other legit teams, but the Lady Gators have to be the front runners.

    Totally disagree on the men’s team. They have the talent and the depth to be top ten. All they need is a great coach to help them improve and motivate them to work hard and win. Lady Gators will win it again. Jo graduating hurt, but the new freshmen will contribute immediately.

    Talent is diminished if your boy leaves though. Coupled with the few others you mentioned possibly leaving and the depth would be shot. A lot up in the air right now. UF should be a perennial top 5 program, but it might take a couple seasons to get there if some of your foreshadowing comes to fruition.
