    Found my own answer... http://sec.xosdigitallabs.com/Portals/3/SEC Website/compliance/Men Tennis.pdf

    So, ultimately the coaches post their week's lineup on Tuesday by noon and the other coaches need to protest by 7pm and if there is a protest, there is a conference call at 10am Wednesday that the coach being protested can join.

    Also saw the NCAA Handbook for last year that mentions how lineups are done in the NCAA Tournament. It says "In singles competition, position Nos. 1-5 shall remain the same for the duration of the championship. Position No. 6 may be filled with any of the three remaining players on the lineup, and may change from match to match."
    I never that about #6 singles.

    That rule is the same thing as saying you may sub your #6 player out for #7, and if #7 cannot play, you may sub #8 at the sixth position which is what has always been practiced. The logic behind the rule is a coach is not supposed to be able to make a substitution to play his "sub" at number 5 in front of the #6 player.

    If for example, the #5 is injured, then #6 would have to play at the fifth position and then #7 or #8 would have to play the sixth position.

    For a good example of this, do NOT look at how UVa did it when they played Mississipi or Miss St. :)

    Clemson was trying to get in on this somehow. Didn't work out

    Somehow I missed that one when I was looking over the schedules. I'd be a little surprised if Memphis didn't win this one. 1st serve at 5pm - Live Stats

    Alabama with singles wins at 1 & 3. Memphis with wins at 2 & 4 and leading 7-5 5-1 at 5. Appears #6 singles will be the decider with the Tide up a set and 4-3 in the 2nd.

    Tie-breaker for the second set. Kills to not see the breaker score. Memphis has pulled these types of matches out this year.

    SEC Schedule for Friday April 6th

    Will it be a Good Friday for Kentucky or Mississippi State. Doubles point is a tough one to pick but I'm going to take Mississippi State based on the fact that Kentucky hasn't won the doubles point at home against any of the bigger names they've played (Baylor, Florida, Pepperdine, Tulsa) while Mississippi State has played very well in doubles on the road winning the point over Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas A&M as well taking it from Virginia at home.

    Projected Lineups
    Quigley vs Ilyushin - Miss St 7-5 6-4
    Musialek vs Chaudry - UK 6-3 4-6 6-3
    Rossi vs Stropp - UK 6-2 6-3
    Jomby vs Cant - Miss St 7-6 5-7 7-5
    Gomez vs Coupland - Miss St 6-3 6-4
    Roberts vs White - UK 3-6 6-3 7-6

    Based on these lineups I'll take Mississippi State in the 4-3 upset. Weather is supposed to be 60 and sunny. If it was played indoors I'd probably take Kentucky.

    Florida goes to Arkansas at 2pm est – LiveStats & Live Blog - Florida 6-1
    Kentucky hosts Mississippi State at 4pm est – LiveStats & LiveBlog - they might not have the Blog today for some reason
    Georgia goes to Alabama at 4pm est – LiveStats - Georgia 6-1
    LSU hosts South Carolina at 4pm est - LiveStats - LSU 5-2
    Ole Miss goes to Vanderbilt at 4:30pm est - LiveStats - Ole Miss 6-1
    Auburn hosts Tennessee at 6pm est – LiveStats & UT Blog - Tennessee 4-3

    I'll say Doverspike over Spencer in a 3rd set supertiebreak.

    Chris Simpson has hit a hot streak. His emergence will greatly help LSU if he can keep it up. Dom Maden of Clemson beat him earlier in the year in a goofy 6-1 0-6 6-2 scoreline.

    Per Arkansas Blog going on right now for the Florida match - ArkRazorbacks-JT: Don't let the records fool you. Arkansas may have a 1-7 record in the SEC, but have benefited from a tough schedule and continue to make that push for the NCAA Tournament.

    Good to see they've got some optimism about being 1-7 in conference and are still talking about making the tournament.

    They also have Bobby Petrino, so the logic in Fayetteville is not always in line with the rest of the country's thinking.

    Alford already won 6-1 6-1. Florida well on their way to a 6-1 or 7-0 win.

    Kentucky up breaks on all 3 doubles courts 6-2 5-3 6-3. They must not have cared for my prediction and are sticking it to me.

    Miss State comes back but Kentucky holds them off to take the doubles point winning 8-6 at 2 and 8-3 at 3. I think UK was serving up 7-6 at 1 when they stopped it.

    Georgia playing down to Alabama instead of making Bama play up. Dawgs barely pulled out the doubles point winning 9-8 at #3. Bama has taken 3 1st sets and Reddy about to finish off Taboada in straights. Disappointing effort so far by Georgia.

    Lots of close sets in the Miss State/Kentucky match. Every 1st set was 7-5 or 7-6 except for #5 singles.

    I was going to predict a straight sets win for Vikram Reddy over Ignacio Taboada last night, but I had some sort of problem clicking the submit button and somehow that prediction never got posted ... really ... honestly ... you can believe me. :)

    Live stats hasn't worked all day on the Vanderbilt/Ole Miss match and now it has gone out on the Alabama/Georgia match too.

    Also, I predicted a 7-6, 6-2 win for Proskura over Doumbia.

    Looks like Hernus Pieters is going to be the hero today.

    Borsos now fighitng back vs Machado


    edit: and he does fight all the way back and wins 7-5. But Nick Jones fought back at to knot it at 5-5 in 3rd. Simpson comes from 3-0 down to make it 3-3. Lots of drama still left. SC needs both remaining courts.

    Recap of Friday Matches

    Well I wasn't close on my pick of the Kentucky/Mississippi State match. Kentucky won all but one court although many were close.

    Kentucky handles Mississippi State 6-1. Very impressed win.
    Florida dominated Arkansas as expected and won 7-0.
    Georgia looked pretty poor but still won over Alabama 5-2. Spencer won his match when Doverspike retired at 5 all in the 3rd with cramps.
    LSU picked up a hard fought 4-3 win over South Carolina. All 3 matches at the top of the lineup were wars with LSU winning 2 of the 3 which turned out to be the difference.
    Ole Miss beat Vanderbilt 6-1. 4 singles matches went the distance
    Tennessee got it done on the road beating Auburn 5-2.

    SEC Schedule for Sunday April 8th

    Should be plenty of good matches on Sunday. Kentucky played really well in beating Mississippi State so we will see if they can get the Mississippi sweep. Georgia looked sluggish against Alabama and if they play that way again Auburn is good enough to beat them. Florida will beat LSU but LSU is good enough to keep it close. Vandy could give Miss State a run after MSU came up short against Kentucky. South Carolina and Arkansas should be a competitive one too. I'll say the only blowout will be Tennessee over Alabama.

    #6 Kentucky hosts #14 Ole Miss at 1pm est - Live Stats & LiveBlog - UK 4-3
    #4 Georgia goes to #16 Auburn at 2pm est – LiveStats & UGA LiveBlog - Dawgs 4-3
    #9 Florida goes to LSU at 2pm est - LiveStats - Gators 5-2
    #10 Mississippi State goes to Vanderbilt at 2pm est - LiveStats - Miss St 5-2
    #19 Tennessee goes to Alabama at 2pm est -LiveStats & UT LiveBlog - UT 6-1
    Arkansas hosts South Carolina at 2pm est - LiveStats - Cocks 4-3

    Chris Thiemann not playing singles again for Ole Miss. Regardless should be a good battle between these 2 teams.

    LSU claims the doubles point over Florida winning 8-2 at 1 and 8-4 at 3. Could get interesting in singles. LSU is a much better team at home than on the road.

    Florida is a pretty big favorite at 4-5. And a decent favorite at 6. LSU will need strong play from their top 3.

    Courts 1 and 2 just won the first sets. Courts 4 and 5 are tied up, late in the first set. Other courts going UF's way.

    Alabama stuns Tennesee 4-1. Bottom of the line-up for the Tide routs the Vols lower players.

    LSU won Courts 1 and 2. LSU's Simpson down a set on Court 3, but up 5-4 in 2nd. LSU is down a set on Court 4, but Knights up 5-3 in 2nd set. Szacinski in 3rd set on Court 5 and Dave Roberts, down a set, has rallied back from a 5-2 deficit to make it 5-5 in the 2nd set. LSU definitely pushing UF on all courts today!
