Good call, I noticed that one as well. They might be a bit like us in a way in that they're an after thought since they're in the same state as Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, TCU, etc.

It is true that a lot of mid level teams lose more than they win, and a lot of this is due simply to how the coach schedules things. I think this contributes in a large part to a college tennis experience as well. Quite simply, it is not very fun to lose a lot, and it is a lot of fun to win a lot. W-L record is rather underrated imo, not necessarily for determining team strength, because the ITA rankings do a great job of that, but rather for overall college tennis experience of those on the team.
