    500 M/W at Tulsa for All American preQ Sat/Sun with 50% chance of rain Sat pm-some thoughts

    Well, if no other sport has even the possibility of this happening, then the statement that "this happens in no other sport" does not mean much. Which sport has a situation in which they could abandon parallel matches but they decide to continue them, unlike college tennis? Maybe in Ryder Cup...

    Sure. In baseball, when you are leading going into the bottom of the 9th inning, you don't bat because it makes no difference to the outcome. In match play golf, when you are three holes ahead with two holes to go, the match ends because the last two holes would make no difference.

    Time to sunset TennisRecruiting.net

    The TRN rankings are a pretty good predictor of college tennis success. That speaks well of what they are doing. If you don't want to pay attention to them, don't. Their ranking system does not give junior players an incentive to do the wrong thing, unlike the USTA points-per-round system and...

    Who are the D1 college coaches who have been at the same college 20+ years (can include years as asst coach)?

    How many national titles in the last 50 years for the Big 10? Are you going to keep citing something exceptional as if it is the new bar for success? Pepperdine won a title in about 2006, right? So, NO EXCUSES for any other mid-major conference coach to not win a national title! Get on the...

    He is probably doing a great job, it is just hard to get those words out of my mouth as a Virginia fan. :)

    Interesting path taken by Rodolfo Rake. Notable that he recommends college after having seen the alternate path, even though he ended up successful in business eventually. https://www.tennisrecruiting.net/article.asp?id=304247000

    Re: the ‘junior and college tennis a waste of time and money’ thread

    There is nothing the matter with a business degree. My point was that athletes get steered into certain programs, whereas if they were not athletes, they would choose the program they really wanted. I stand by that statement from observation up close. My experience in recent years has been at...

    I have never been near OSU. Personally never liked Tucker because of his lineup stacking and some of he demeanor I saw from him during matches, e.g. towards umpires. But I had to grudgingly admit that he was doing a good job. Taking 5-star local recruits and redshirting them, turning them into...

    Did Marino have the Ravens defense? It is a team game, and you are just being stupid here.

    Well, they will suffer the consequences as well. I don't criticize college tennis in general, but we should be honest here: At top Division I programs, players feel pressure to choose a major that does not have three-hour lab courses that interfere with the practice schedule. At a Division III...

    How do you spell "troll" and "repeatedly saying the same things as if we did not hear him the first time?"

    USC Men's Head Coach Peter Smith Resigns

    Nor could they get Billy Martin to move over from UCLA at the end of his career, or the Stanford coach, or Ty Tucker at Ohio State, or newer coaches at great places like Virginia and Florida who are getting things moving in the direction they want, etc. It was a stupid post in the first place...
