    Lebron Watch...

    He drew out the media circus of his free agency too long...then went on prime-time national TV to slap Cleveland and basketball fans across the face. His brand and image have allready taken a massive hit, as obvious from the countless number of fans and media members who have ripped him for his...

    Lebron Watch...

    Lebron will regret his handling of free agency for a long time...his name, brand, image and stock just took a massive hit. Right now he not only looks spectacularly callous and immature...but scared and naive. How could his advisors have been so dumb...amazing...

    Pete Bodo on Isner v Mahut

    The article (from the about the match being fixed) is written by someone who obviously doesn't know or understand anything about tennis, or one step tennis. Ridiculous point...dumb article...amazing match...

    College Realignment

    It will really help Utah and Colorado's teams (Colorado dropped the mens team 4 years ago). Joining the Pac is a huge recruiting advantage. Boulder should see a nice bump in women recruits and Utah should be able to snag an extra player here or there because of it...

    top 10 reasons why Lakers will win again:::

    USC women's tennis to vacate wins

    Are you referring to sideline tickets while on the recruiting trip or throughout the year? On a recruiting trip, schools can take you to a game...and that can be anywhere in the stadium. I went on 5 recruiting trips and was on the field for football games for 3 of (legal) stuff...

    Question- What would you rather?

    Oregon get's beat up pretty bad in the PAC...but it's a great school in a fun college location. As a Southern Cal guy who loves the sun...go to'll be playing great competition, get a ton of cool Nike gear and enjoy 4 years of Pac-10 football and basketball. Loyola just can't...

    Nadal should have 8-10 slams now and Fed should have 13-15.

    no it's a dumb troll thread. That's sports. People get hurt, things happen.

    Lack of Men's Tennis teams?

    So your justifying inequality...with inequality? Interesting. You act like I've searched around from position of superiority and privelage and found the only thing I can to complain about. What a ridiculous and juvenile assertion and line of thinking. Title 9 is ridiculous and unfair...your...

    Lack of Men's Tennis teams?

    More title 9 fun: Womens tennis scholarships (fully funded school): 8 scholarships Mens tennis scholariships (fully funded school): 4.5 scholarships The school I went to had 8 girls on full scholarship. The 7th girl played doubles and the 8th girl never played a match (despite being...

    *The Big Lebowski Thread*

    "Come on, man. I had a rough night and I hate the f%$#ing Eagles, man!" "So if you could just write me my check for ten percent of a half a million... five grand... I'll go out and mingle." "You know, Dude, I myself dabbled in pacifism once. Not in 'Nam of course"

    Blockbuster Movie You Thought Stunk That Everyone Else Thought Was Great

    Inglorious *******s was massively over-hyped T Don't quite understand the Dark Knight or District 9 criticisms...we're talking blockbusters here...those movies were both pretty amazingly creative and well done...

    OU/Roddick Signs Davis Cup Player

    Most schools don't have all that much pressure from fans, alumni or the AD to win...again we're talking about tennis...a sport we obviously all play (and probably love)...but it's college tennis...which means the primary pressure most coaches are under is to not cause the AD any headaches with...

    OU/Roddick Signs Davis Cup Player

    There is an issue when college coaches at universities don't even look at Americans, and instead simply recruit foreign players. There's obviously many reasons for this, and many of them are valid. What American from Florida or California is ever going to head to Waco, Texas. At the same...

    OU/Roddick Signs Davis Cup Player

    Which makes it crazy that schools are using 50-75 and in some cases 100% of that scholarship money on foreign players. Budget for a D1 team in a legit conferance is upwards of 400 to 500k per yeah, OU (as an extreme example of course given it's football tradition) can definitely...

    OU/Roddick Signs Davis Cup Player

    At the same time, we're talking about a non-revenue sport at publicly funded universities. I don't hold anything against the foreigners that come over and both schools I played at we had guys on scholarship from foreign countries. That being said, it is kind of crazy that teams will...

    UCSB Tennis

    UCSB is tough to beat when everything's factored in. You lose the football...but the Thunderdome can certainly get going for BBall...not to mention UCSB more than makes up for the loss of the football team with the college experience that is IV. Marty's a great coach as well...

    UCSB Tennis

    Chicago is a fun city...but the winter is pretty rough, especially when your coming from a warm spot. It wears on you. Especially when you've spent your whole life playing tennis in the sun. Having spent a few months in Australia...I can definetely say your in for a shock with the winter...

    UCSB Tennis

    As a guy who went from a warm place (SoCal) to play college tennis in a cold place (Ohio), I'd highlyt recomend thinking long and hard about going from a warm spot to a cold spot. Indoor tennis is a different beast, and while Northwestern is a great school that plays their matches at a pretty...

    Donald Young Done Again

    Top 100 isn't too shabby...if he can stay there for awhile and keep being main draw that's not a bad career. Where he's at now is dangerous h as he's going to be forced back into challengers.

    Donald Young Done Again

    Did you just randomly type the first two numbers that came to mind or what...thats just a bizarre number and stat... Donald Young is doing the right thing (obviously) by playing main draw ATP events instead of Challengers. If he was a direct acceptance into the main draw and was playing...

    Gonzalez makes me feel sick!!!

    Quote one is simply ridiculous. If the umpire has made a mistake, and you know it...the ethics of the game dictate that you must tell you opponent. What you are saying is what every ATP player knows is wrong as it is cheating...some (much like your self) don't place much value on their own...

    Should Tennis be an Olympic sport?

    How is that hypocritical? I am going to the Olympics tonight to cheer on athletes who have given their whole lives to play on this these games...none of these guys will have their careers defined or really even changed by the Olympics...thats sad and disrespectful to the games...

    Lost respect for Gonzlez today

    how does that have anything to do with a guy stealing a point from another guy at a pivotal time in a match?
