    Cal is soft, everyone on the west coast knows they under achieve most years. For the talent they have they should have never lost to us. We will take it, thanks for the confidence boost.

    Yeah according to the article he just couldn't overcome John Morrissey in that deciding match - even though he was playing Maciek Romanowicz. Student newspaper reporting at its finest.

    Huge win over the #2 TCU Frogs. Lots of talent on this team. Loss to Tulsa looks like an anomaly now .

    every match counts in ITA rankings. Cal needed this thanks to their failure to get to Durham if they want to get into the top 10 and beyond.

    FEar the bear, Cal has 3 Seniors but Engsted and Wikberg played 6 & 5 last Weekend and Houghton never Plays
    so they will return their Top4 next season..thats impressive
    in Ryan Shen is a 5-star freshman on their roster
    they ve recruited Blue Ship Hoffmann for 2017 and foreign Conor Heap

    i feel next year bears are a Top5 Team if they can put some good guys out there on 5 & 6

    Full strength team, is that the excuse o' the day? That kind of team hasn't been seen for a long time at the Farm.

    yes yes,,, Bears men did GREAT this year in the tournament. surpassed all the expectations. are they going to bring most of the guys back next year ? If so, they will be tough next year as well.

    and as for Women's team,,,,what is going on there ?? they lost in the Semis when they were supposed to breeze thru this Oklahoma team......... did they choke ?? or was it just FEAR of possibility of facing the Cardinal once again in the NCAA tournament.......................????????????????????????????

    What is up with these Cal players.....both Lakat and Goransson crash out in the 1st round. and Lakat should have won in straight sets too............ is this just BAD coaching or case of choke ?

    huh that's interesting. Cal didn't even have their 3 and 4 singles play and they beat a full strength UCLA.

    Look at their UTR's. That is a clear sign that Cal has a strong class. This is a big class especially because Cal's 1, 2, and 3 are all seniors.

    Ucla was without Joseph Digulio who regularly will play at #4 singles and #2 doubles. I am guessing he is injured.
