I may have been a little over the top with the Fedace reference.
Still, we will just disagree over the “favorite” concept. I totally get that you believe in your team and what they are capable of. I think that whether you are a favorite/underdog is a totally different discussion than whether someone will or won’t win.
It’s a long time until next April/May. Ultimately, at this stage, any favorite talk is premature. We can at least agree that there is a lot that can happen--injuries, new January recruits, different players improving/regressing--to change the face of college tennis in the coming months. The view of whom the favorites are both nationally and within conferences will be much clearer next spring.
By the way, I am a big Ramsey Smith fan. He’s a class act and great coach.
