what do these results mean? Does it show that UVA is vulnerable or that they have grit? It shows how strong the SEC is right now for sure.

I think college tennis is definitely getting deeper, but also UVA might be feeling the loss of Shabaz and Singh. They used to always take the doubles point. Also Domijan hasn't stepped up. Jenkins is a great guy and fights hard, but unless he got a lot better since I last saw him, he's better as a #2.

There was some talk from UVA fans before the year that this team was better than last year's. No matter how good Frank is, you can't lose to players like Shabaz ans Singh and expect to get better.
