I was just about to start this thread! One that dosen't get started tomorrow is Oklahoma and I think Memphis could very well beat the Sooners.

what's interesting is that Baylor has again opted to not participated in this tournament.


Cal regional:
Cal vs Michigan will be interesting. Campbell Johnson had a couple of nice wins this past week, where will he factor in the Cal line-up? I also would not put a Santa Clara win over Michigan out of the realm of possibility.

Stanford regional:
Texas A&M will beat Stanford. Then advance because both San Diego and Tech had better teams last year.

Kentucky regional:
I think another host goes down here. Texas looks better than Kentucky right now. South Carolina and Michigan State as the consolation game will also be a good match

Duke regional:
Duke will win this but Northwestern vs VT will be a 4-3 thriller for sure. Two super evenly matched teams.

I hope Illinois rebuilds their program, but I will be surprised if they make the final 16 this year, indoors or outdoors.

TopDawg 01-24-2013 05:42 PM

I noticed that Memphis and Vanderbilt are scheduled to play at Vandy on February 15th which is the 1st day of the National Indoors in Seattle so I guess neither expects to win their regional.

They could be the 4th best team in their regional. I expect them to lose to Tennessee.

Ah, thanks!

Clemson_tennis 01-24-2013 06:09 PM

well that answers the question if Rola will be back or not. Buckeyes back in contention

It's a strage date in the first place. The next day is the first day of qualifying for the U.S. Pro Indoor ATP stop in Memphis. They usually have a player in the draw with a wildcard. Just a guess, but I'm sure coaches have thought it through and the match can be canceled or rescheduled. If either wins their regional it will likely take precedence over the dual. May as well schedule a for sure match than a maybe.

Good call!

Lower ranked teams that I think will win tomorrow: Georgia Tech, NC State, Virginia Tech, Texas A&M, BYU, and Tennessee.

kme5150 01-25-2013 04:31 AM

Great find on the depth charts. Thanks

Lower ranked teams that I think will win: NC State, Texas Tech, Tennessee, Tulsa, Notre Dame, & Texas A&M.

Minnesota and VCU starting it off with a tight doubles point. Minnesota took 1 and VCU 3. Gophers were up 7-4 at 2 and now it is 7 all. Minnesota has to take the dubs point to win this match in my opinion.

TopDawg 01-25-2013 05:50 AM

Minnesota wins the tiebreaker to take it 8-7. I guess that shortened the match by about 5 minutes by not playing the tiebreaker at 8-8. Big savings..

TopDawg 01-25-2013 06:52 AM

NC State takes the dubs point over Louisville taking 1&2 dubs 8-5. Louisville took 3 dubs 8-4.

Minnesota and VCU split 1st sets in the 4 singles matches going on.

thanks for your post... interesting indeed ...

UVA: Frank @5
USC: Johnson @3
UCLA: Puget @3 and Thomson @5
Pepperdine:Sarkissian @2

It all looks to be an interesting year coming up...

Automator 01-25-2013 08:16 AM

If Frank has really recovered from his injury, he won't stay at #5 for long. Boland just has him there as a precaution for the time being. Ryan Shane at #3 is the shocker there.

IF Frank is really 100%, he'll be at #3 before too long. If Ryan Shane stays above Styslinger, then...ummm...yikes. This team might be better than I thought they were.

Not that we'll figure any of this out this weekend.

woodrow1029 01-25-2013 08:19 AM

Rained this morning at Stanford. 10 am start is gonna turn into probably at least 11:00. Sun is out now though.

TopDawg 01-25-2013 08:25 AM

Mengel may get bailed out from taking a loss - he's down 7-5 4-0 but Duke is closing to closing out 5 and 6 which would clinch it.
