    Tell me about it. It's maddening. No telling which team is going to turn up against FSU.

    Florida State at Miami underway after a 30-min rain delay. But don't bother with Live Stats. Still stuck on April 4.

    They are posting scores now, but the names are still from April 4. Classic.

    Now I remember: They stopped updating midway through the doubles against Duke, which makes it look like real scores at the moment. Even more impressive.

    Miami goes down to Florida State. That pretty much finishes their season as well. The ACC tourney and that'll be it. No NCAAs for the third consecutive year.

    Good effort today from Tsukamoto in a match he probably should have been out-classed in. Tough for Gonzalez to drop that 2nd set.
    Miami never worked as a cohesive unit this season. At one point they had decent depth but the top guys struggled, now to end the year the top players are playing pretty well but the depth isn't there anymore.

    Great article on Coach Rincon. Although you'd never guess that the team is far, far away from the top ten now and will probably miss the NCAA tournament for the third consecutive time. First time this has ever happened at Miami. Still, a nice all-positive-no-negative article on the coach.

    My take on the article and the touting of the 2014 recruiting class that is also on the page is that Mario Rincon might be feeling the pressure, so let's put out a couple of puff pieces.

    No argument there, but he's got a couple if interesting recruits coming in next year so maybe he can turn this thing around.

    Noles win all six first sets of the singles matches. Albanese goes down 1 and 1. Noles leading 2-0 at the moment.

    Flores vs. Gonzalez 4-6, 6-3, 0-1
    Soto vs. Nunez 2-6, 7-5
    Gonzales vs. 4-6, 5-4
    Tsukamoto vs. Rinaldi 3-6. 6-1, 1-2

    Knowing who is serving is not a luxury us college tennis fans are allowed. The concept of showing who is serving has not occurred to those doing the live scoreboards.

    A bit too optimistic. Should say how it is instead of saying that.

    While the men are returning to Miami after their one night stay in Cary, the women are looking good against Notre Dame with the doubles point and 3 of 4 first sets in the singles and a chance to win two more.

    Miami blown off the courts today. This was probably their worst loss of the year. When I checked the live scoring, I thought I was looking at the men's team's scores by mistake. Oh well, On to the NCAAs.

    I was a bit hard on them at times during the last few years but though they didn't produce the results we hoped for, Aly, Flores and Soto represented The U well. Never met them myself but everyone tells me they a great bunch of guys. Good luck to them in their future.

    The Canes ladies team was seeded 12th and will host first two rounds. They'll play Boston University in the first round and then the winner of Oklahoma-Wichita state. If the get thru that, They'll probably face No. 2 UCLA. Gonna be tough.

    Team missed out on the NCAAs again but Omar Aly was named to the ACC Second Team and he is the 8th Alternate for the NCAA singles. Doubt he will play but the best showing a Cane gave in a couple years.

    Omar Aly

    Very bad news for the Canes ladies as they prepare for the NCAA Championships. They just suspended their No. 2 player, 66th-ranked Kelsey Laurente for whatever reason.

    Could make for a close second round match. Was that after line ups had been submitted ?

    Not sure which came first. But they pulled it out today against No. 18 Oklahoma. The Sooners had a match point to take the doubles point but they hung in there and came back. They took the singles pretty easily. But now here comes one of my Axis of Evil teams, the UCLA Brooins. Gonna be tough to get through that one.

    No, nothing. The school will not announce things like that. I'd like to know too though. It must have been pretty bad to have been suspended right before the NCAAs.

    On the women's side, I saw a couple days ago that Kelsey Laurente transferred to the Oklahoma State Cowboys. She was suspended for an unknown reason right before the NCAA tournament (must have been pretty bad) so this news surprises no one. It's gonna hurt though, because Laurente was ranked as high as No. 33 in the country last year and was a solid No. 2, sometimes No. 1 in the lineup.

    With Laurente leaving, the roster is at five. The bare minimum needed for dual team play is six. So what happen now? The school just announced that they have five freshmen signed for next year. There is blue-chip and No. 5 Yolimar Ogando from Puerto Rico, Judith Bohnenkamp from Germany, Silvia Fuentes from Spain, Sinead Lohan from Ireland and Wendy Zhang from Canada. Hard to say what kind of team we will have next year on the women's side. Could go either way.

    If you're looking for an international team, look no further. We have players from Brazil, Latvia, Germany (2), Spain, Canada, Ireland, Venezuela, and Puerto Rico. Wow.

    Laurente Transfers, Five Freshmen Coming In

    Curious if Bohnenkamp is a walk on or not, she has yet to sign a NLI

    According to Miami's official site, she is coming in the fall. But then again they never announce when players leave or uncommit so will have to check the roster in September.
