    if NCAA college tennis drug test, it would be interesting to see which teams would still be on top...
    It would surely turn some rankings upside down..

    Drug testing of all student athletes has been going on for decades.

    Really and I assume you have proof?
    Most universities already drug test, but go ahead and slander some teams if it makes you feel better

    My daughter played two sports at a division III school, and drug testing was only conducted after a second round NCAA tournament game, and only on random players. In fact, I'm pretty sure they didn't test after a third round game, but I can't say after that, as they never made it to the final four.

    Who exactly do you suppose is cheating and getting away with it despite current drug testing standards?

    drug testing

    My son plays D1 and gets drug tested. In fact one of his teammates tested positive this year and lost his scholarship.

    Just because people are tested for drugs intermittently, doesn't mean that they aren't taking drugs. Many jobs test for drugs- often it is annual or only during the hiring process.
