    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...

    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...

    Ohio State Tennis

    Although I hate to say this, as an Illini fan, the only way Tucker leaves is if he chooses to leave. He has done a phenomenal job as a northern school coach. If you’re going to measure success as having to win an NCAA title, then I think your expectations are a bit too high - his teams have...

    Stanford Men

    Looks like Stanford has another big recruiting win - Alex Lee #3 recruit from Illinois. He would have looked much better wearing the orange and blue. Hard to compete with what Stanford has to offer. https://mobile.twitter.com/ParsaBombs

    Tennis mom - I love your posts, and I hate to be a pain, but is there any way you can break them up into a couple paragraphs? I’ll blame it on my old eyes.

    WooHoo!! Kovasevic beats Riffice to move into the Semis. Plays Jubb tomorrow. Seems like it’s been a while since an Illini individual made it to the semis.

    What is the end game for college tennis? What's the point?

    This guy is just trolling - probably best to ignore. Football requires 5% of the work a tennis excellence demands? LOL.

    NCAA Men's Tournament 2019

    Well, that sucks. My Illini are out of it. Just not good enough this year - weak doubles, and a few holes in the lineup. Hopefully, we’ll be better next year. Since I’m a B10 fan, I guess I’ll have to root for the Buckeyes now (not easy).

    Big 10 Tennis

    Yeah, you’re probably right, at least concerning how the Illini will fair overall. The Buckeyes have been so tough for so long - I just keep hoping/praying we can make it more of a rivalry.

    Big 10 Tennis

    Not to be a downer as an Illini fan, but our success nationally and in the B10 depends a lot on OSU. Is Wolf coming back? I know they lose Joyce and Tubert, but they also have a pretty good recruiting class coming in.

    That, and they keep losing the doubles point. Tough to win against a good team when you have to consistently win 4 singles matches.

    Looks like the Buckeyes vs the Illini again for the B10 final. Both teams had their hands full - OSU beat MI 4-2, and the Illini beat PSU 4-2.

    Good match at #1. Wolf really punishes the 2nd serve.

    Big 10 Tennis

    I don’t quite understand this. The ball wasn’t close to being out, yet McNally called it out. You’re blaming the official because he didn’t overrule a terrible call by a player? I don’t care how badly a player wants the ball to be out - that ball didn’t even hit the line.

    The Buckeyes beat my Illini today 4-2. Wolf beat Kovacevic 7-6, 7-6 at #1.
