    SEC Tennis

    There was a rules change. Only two matches in a day can count. No more four or six match days.

    Stanford Men

    And lost last week to former Cavalier Alex Ritschard, who is ranked below him.

    Ohio State Tennis

    Yes, the Texas coach getting that non-team-member into school four years ago was the difference in the match today.

    Longhorn Tennis

    I knew of a local 1-star who had a good sense of humor and claimed on TRN that he had signed an NLI with Virginia when he was in 9th grade. That joke stayed there for a couple of years before being removed. I don't know the story of who instigated the removal. I see from his TRN page that he was...

    Longhorn Tennis

    Any player with an account at TRN can list his commitment to a school. Players who only end up playing club tennis or intramural tennis can list their commitment. We should not jump to a conclusion when we see a 1-star "commitment." If the player checks the "Signed NLI" box (for National Letter...

    Tennis admissions scandal

    Where? I call B.S. due to possessing common sense. We will see. No coach was fooled. That's why they had to be bribed.

    Tennis admissions scandal

    It seems that coaches were taking bribes to claim to the admissions department that a certain player was a high-level athlete in the coach's sport. That makes sense. Only the opinion of the relevant coach would matter to admissions. But that means the coach was definitely not fooled by false...

    Tennis admissions scandal

    I doubt that a tennis coach can be fooled badly about the level of a domestic tennis player.

    Assumptions ^^^^ Says it all about your homer tendencies on this subject. I guess you could answer the question about whether you were there, and then no one would need to make assumptions.

    From LTA to D1

    Very few taxpayer dollars support athletes. The athletic department has to account for a scholarship as out-of-state tuition, which is very high. The cost is about half from TV revenues. The bulk of the other half comes from earnings from football and basketball, student fees, and donations. At...

    College level players?

    So, just lose as often as you want to players with the same rating as long as you occasionally win. Sounds like a bad system.

    Stanford Men

    Good win considering that Rotsaert did not play.

    No-Ad rule change revisited

    They only show doubles when nothing else is available, much to my disappointment. So, shortening doubles matches did not help them get on TV. It just helps the tournament free up courts faster for singles.

    College Dual Match Format Is The Greatest Thing Ever Invented

    Some conference networks, such as PAC-12 and Big Ten, showed a little college tennis before the format change, and they still show just a little. The only difference is the College Match Day shows a few times each spring on the Tennis Channel. It is not clear that the format change is the reason...

    College Dual Match Format Is The Greatest Thing Ever Invented

    But the length is irrelevant for played-out matches. If the dual match had been decided, a TV network will be glad to have something to show during the rest of the scheduled time slot, and then they can just drop the telecast and move on. Picture a TV network that supposedly likes the new format...
