Wow! Just had a bizarre response to my last post. It was taken down before I could log in. I could screenshot and share from my email but will just say it was very provocative. Guessing more info to come on this story.

G.O.A.T.
I've told my Brian Boland story before. He went to St. Cloud Tech high school in St. Cloud Minnesota - state tennis power at the time (late 80s, early 90s). I played him in the Minnesota Section 8 team tournament final and lost. In Minnesota there's an entire team tournament separate from the individual tournament, like NCAAs.

Many year later, when he popped up as UVA coach, I thought the name sounded familiar and sure enough, it was him. All the way from St. Cloud to UVA and NCAA titles - I'm a little surprised he left.
 
ZooTennis said he was asked to resign. The plot thickens.
Does it have anything to do with University female student(s)? People just don't resign effectively immediately like that.

Remind me of my company former COO. He also resigned effectively immediately. Few days later, it was found out he was asked to resign immediately due to "confirmed" sexual harrassment of subordinates and allowed to kep his 400k/year pension or get fired and collected nothing.

You mean "pummel" the same way Yuya Ito pummeled your boy UF Sam Riffice at the 2019 ITA final?
well, i've only spoken with respect towards the Texas program over the past 12 months - Ito and their entire team were extremely impressive / talented / composed (both when i watched them compete on their way to the title in Orlando, and when I watched them take down UF in Gainesville)

but neither compares to the beatdown Baylor received at the hands of UF in the NCAA quarters - it's honestly hard for me to explain how much I enjoyed watching Jimmy Bendeck cry during his final career singles match, a 6-1, 6-0 beatdown from Kessler in front of relentless UF fans

I have no similar respect for Baylor and Boland trying to bring one-and-done to men's college tennis - glad to watch him leave Baylor with his tail between his legs, the same way he left the courts at Lake Nona last I saw him

Agree with this, the program has been corrupt since the Knoll was there, I don't know what it is about the coaches there (Art Briles football and Dave Bliss basketball) are two others who come to mind.
