    Cal loses another heartbreaker. They just cannot get the wins they need. Time to beat Stanford next!! They can win this!!!

    That's a lot of firepower graduating. Wonder who will play #1. No obvious candidates for that top spot.

    USC will have some issues next year IMHO. It's extremely hard to replace your top 4 no matter who they have coming in next year. Thank God we still have Cal underachieving like they always do.

    Didn't know if anyone else noticed this but near the end of last season Oregon kicked Kevin Farin off the team - he played 8 matches at #1 and 4 matches at #2. I just read about it after I saw that he wasn't on the roster for next season.

    did anyone notice that it took USC 3 1 set down rallies to beat Loyola Marymount today? And didn't exactly smash Grand Canyon either.

    probably Loyola came in highly motivated and believing in themselves. and USC probably took them lightly. it happens.

    Yeah partially and maybe under the new format things like this are more bound to happen. But still tennis isn't like other sports. In football and basketball it doesn't matter at all how badly a superior team beats an inferior opponent, it doesn't say anything about the team moving forward. But in tennis is does matter more.

    Yes, these No ad scoring, super tiebreaker and 1 set only for doubles became a great equalizer. so it brings the inferior teams closer to top teams. maybe NCAA and ITA wanted it that way ..LOL. but then it doesn't help the Top guys to get ready for the ATP tour. so College becomes even worse training ground for soon to turn professional or wanna be professionals.

    I believe Pepperdine had to go to a third set in the last match on court to beat Loyola Marymount 4-3 the other day, IIRC.
