Re: College Tennis: General Talk & News- 2011 Pre-season Talk/Make your predictions
Elon is a very good team out of the southern conference. Of course for South Carolina it's a horrible loss. But I think Elon will win the southern conference and be very competitive in the NCAA tourney.
Speaking of this mid-major team, it was sort of expected this year that big time talent would be present in the top 5 and really nowhere else. But I think this year will be fairly balanced. Obviously UVA, USC, and Tennessee (maybe Ohio State) will be the frontrunners competing for the national title (although I think Texas and UCLA may stage huge upsets in May), but the mid-major teams have done a remarkable job recruiting. Also, teams like Kentucky/Wake Forest and other teams in that #10-#25 range have gotten one or two very talented recruits to play this year, which goes along with their very rigourous schedule, which will make this season very exciting.
Before the season starts, I'd just like to say watch out for the Univeristy of Kentucky Wildcats (ranked #12), the Texas Longhorns (solely depending on the vast improvement of their starting lineup over the summer/fall) and the UCLA Bruins IN MAY, AND the mid-majors!
Also, a lot of teams really have extreme schedules vs. top schedules. I've looked up a few teams schedules' such as Kentucky's and it's loaded, but it's also not too indifferent from other top 25 teams' schedules. Should be one of the best years in college tennis, imo.
