    That‘s not an unfair advantage?

    Big 10 Tennis

    I think you’re trying to stir something up that doesn’t exist. I kind of doubt Dancer has a lot to do with the Twitter account. Are you affiliated with either Illini or OSU tennis? I just checked their Twitter, and it looks like a healthy dose of both past and current players...

    Not sure I understand your last sentence?

    Big 10 Tennis

    I wish the Illini would have raised the seating above the fence. I believe that was the plan initially - must have decided to save $. Other than that, it’s a great facility. In terms of the transfers, some of these guys are getting pretty old. Vocal turns 25 in May, and he has 2 year’s...

    Power-5 tennis coach gets paid so little.

    But that’s not what you posted. Your earlier post stated, “Tressell won one championship, got shown the door. Urban came in and won one championship and got shown the door.” In other words, you alluded that because they ”only” won one championship each, they were both let go, when that...

    Power-5 tennis coach gets paid so little.

    Tressel and Meyer were not “shown the door” due to their W/L records or lack of championships. Tressel was let go due to improper benefits violations, and Urban left on his own, after being suspended a few games due to his assistant coach’s spousal abuse. As an alum, you should know that...

    predictions of who will make QFs for men's singles and dubs?

    Yeah, I know - disappointing. I thought the Rodrigues/Kova match would be a good one. Really surprised Kova went down so easily. I know Rodrigues is really good, I just thought it would be a lot better match.

    predictions of who will make QFs for men's singles and dubs?

    Still have two Illini alive in the singles - nice wins by Kova (against Spizzirri), and Montsi (Finn Reynolds). Not sure how far they’ll advance - tough draw for both of them.

    ITA rankings

    Well, as discussed before, the SEC should do well, given the relative seeds/locations. My earlier point was that Illinois deserved better than the 16th seed - having to face the number 1 seed in the sweet sixteen Is a tough draw, especially against Florida in Orlando. This season was unique...

    Yeah, I’ve never been in favor of older, usually foreign, players retaining eligibility. At least Seelig is still “only” 23.

    ITA rankings

    I really don’t know what to say. Do you honestly think Northwestern is the 69th best team in the country? Do you honestly feel bad for Auburn, who finished 7-15? The conference you support has 11 of their 14 teams in the tournament, and are hosting 7 of the 16 sites. 10 of the 16 singles...

    ITA rankings

    The Big 10 received minimal consideration due to a ranking system that was extremely skewed due to the current pandemic - the ITA even acknowledged the rankings were unreliable - did you not read it? The Big 10 teams were hosed this year - the four teams that made it would have made it any...

    ITA rankings

    Let me guess - you’re an SEC fan, right? I would think the argument would be an easy one - I would tell them that if they played Northwestern, they would probably lose. A better discussion would be trying to explain to the Ohio St players why they’re currently ranked 28, and why they’re ranked...

    absolute shocker-Big10 only gets one host site as well as PaC-12

    Strange article on the Big 10 site - claims Ohio St received a 15 seed, and will host: https://bigten.org/news/2021/5/3/four-big-ten-teams-claim-ncaa-mens-tennis-championship-berths.aspx Did this seed get switched to Ole Miss?

    Stanford Men

    I doubt any of the players or coaches have any idea who this person is. He/she likes to troll, and it apparently works, due to the number of responses. Stanford is a phenomenal program, and have a lot to offer recruits (location, facilities, education, history, etc.). I’m just getting...
