Re: NCAA Tennis Tournament

Just as I suspected this woman knows nothing, picking UGA to beat Florida and Texas. This is their weakest team in ages and one of their top 6 Bo Seal just got suspended from the team.

Re: NCAA Tennis Tournament

The Bracket

I'm not too happy with this bracket.

1. Why is Wake put with UVA? Wake got screwed, the 22nd team in the nation should bot be placed with the #1 team.

2. Where did their rankings come from? Baylor still 7th over UCLA? Georgia 11th still?

3. Too many conference matchups. If the seeds hold the final 16 will feature 6 of the 8 matches as confernce matches. Texas A&M and Baylor set to face for a 3rd time.. Oklahoma placed with Texas Tech again.

4. Pepperdine is once again a victim of their location. 21st ranked but placed with Stanford,just like last year.

overall an odd bracket

Re: NCAA Tennis Tournament

Another example from the NCAA proving that they are a clown organization. Overriding teams hard work in the season so they can make everything "local". Ridiculous. A 22 ranked team should not play the #1 ranked team. The effing 32 team plays the 1 team. But we are putting travel costs as the top priority.

Re: NCAA Tennis Tournament

The NCAA is just becoming corrupt. We have the same matchups all year that will be playing yet again in the tournament. Ohio State vs Illinois for example, Wake-Virginia, Duke-Carolina. Good heavens. I am going to call/write the NCAA. Anyone else is welcome

Re: NCAA Tennis Tournament

I agree Scott. Does anyone really want to see UVA/Duke part 3? OSU/Illinois? A&M/Baylor? UCLA/Stanford?

The NCAA tournament needs to be about new matchups and playing new teams not the same ol' same ol'.

The localization is getting our of hand, way way too many confernce matchups. You get shafted because of where you are located.

Re: NCAA Tennis Tournament

Looks like they wanted UGA into the final 16 to boost ticket sales, cause they got the cake draw.

and Virginia Tech going to Louisville.

Re: NCAA Tennis Tournament

College tennis is life, certinfy. You can watch the pro's play on clay in Rome with one third of the stands full and the crowd giving a light, golf clap after every error, or you could watch 6 matches of hard core, point after point grinding with Davis Cup atmosphere times 20.

Re: NCAA Tennis Tournament

Well according to that "expert" Texas will lose to Georgia.

No but in reality, Texas has a real serious shot to win it all.
