    ITA Indoors

    My pick is OSU or UNC winning this time around

    Ohio State Tennis

    OSU with the ever-so-interesting team this coming season. Initially expecting the loss of Martin Joyce and Hunter Tubert, I thought that OSU would actually be stronger with a strong freshmen class. However, after losing JJ Wolf to the circuit and Alex Kobelt to grad school/transferring but...

    Does anybody know why South Carolina isn't participating in the tournament this year?

    Hardest Men's Regions for ITA Kick-off

    I expect ASU to give TCU a run for their money. Unpopular opinion, but my own: UCF over Stanford :)

    ITA preseason rankings out

    The talent is all there and I think they will. Nakashima, Soderlund, Wiersholm, Lizen, and Ross will be starters in my eyes while there's going to be a dogfight for the last spot. It'll be an interesting year for UVA.

    Interesting stat that Torpegaard has lost to the eventual champion in the NCAA tournament for each of his 4 years.

    Heard Hugo Di Feo is not opting to play next year, although he is planning on completing his degree. Considering Torpegaard's dominant play over the past two years, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't either. If they both stayed and the addition of McNally, I was preemptively predicting OSU to...

    2016-2017 Projections

    I was under the impression that McNally and Wolf would not be playing until next season. Both are very talented players and would be in the starting lineup.

    2016-2017 Projections

    Great post TopDawg, a lot of information that I was unaware of. I'm most excited to see how Texas pans out this year. I initially wrote Baylor off after last year's issues and graduates, but I'll be putting them on my radar as a team to look out for.

    Good questions SouthernCourts. As a disclaimer, my posts are not necessarily who I think are the top teams, but just an analysis on the teams who finished in the top 16 the past season. There are a couple teams I do not expect to stay on this list. I'm not well-versed with all the ACC teams, but...

    2016-2017 Projections

    And here are my relative ranking projections for last year's top 16 with their position change in parenthesis: UVA (0) Wake Forest (+6) TCU (0) UNC (+1) UGA (+2) OSU (-2) Texas (+9) Cal (+1) USC (+3) OU (-4) Florida (-1) Oklahoma State (+1) UCLA (-11) Northwestern (+1) Texas Tech (-4) A&M (-2)...

    2016-2017 Projections

    Some general thoughts on the top 16 teams as well as their lineups: Virginia lost Shane and Styslinger, but gain a very strong Soderlund. I don’t see their singles lineup losing any steam, but we’ll see how their doubles lineup changes with the two losses. Soderlund/Kwiatkowski...

    Good catch. I have made some edits my post.

    2016-2017 Projections

    Last year, I made predictions regarding the top 16 teams going into the season and how I felt they would stack up for the actual season. As I enjoyed making this last year, I thought it would be fun to make a tradition out if it. I'll be breaking this up into multiple posts, but I thought I'd...
