2011 NCAA Tournament: USC Trojans take 3rd straight title with 4-3 win over UVA!
 
Everything you need right here. This has crept up on me, i for some reason thought the announcements would be made next week, but in fact will be tomorrow at 5:30 on ESPNEWS. This means I will be unable to do a bracketology mock bracket like I did last year. But I will have full breakdown once it it released tomorrow.

Bracket released

Bracket is out! Not sure if this link will work but it's up on the ITA website here

Will stare at this longer at some point but Washington plays Cal Poly first round and then possibly Stanford in the 2nd. Totally winnable section here if UW gets the doubles point...

Real talk, does Baylor have a shot at UVA? at all?

The winner of Texas A&M/Stanford has a better shot. Stanford because they will be at home and A&M is more talented than Baylor

A&M is dangerous, considering how it looks like their top players are clicking now.

Does anyone predict any seed upsets? Minnesota over Cal maybe?

Re: 2011 NCAA Tournament.
 
Mississippi State over Georgia Tech. Oklahoma over Texas because its at OU. Illinois over UNC

I will have a full analysis soon. I just have to get through this week. Should be up by Friday

Nice to see My school Sacred Heart University making it :) kind of sucks that they have to play #1 seed Virginia in the first round though. Does anyone know if we will be able to watch the first round online?

The hosting schools will determine that. Only a few will have live video for their regional. Virginia does not offer that so you will be unable to watch Sacred Heart.

The schools that will provide live video are Texas A&M,Georgia,Stanford,Duke(have to pay for Duke's). That's all of the ones I know of that do live video. (So.Cal may, I'm not sure)

Once we get to one location with the final 16, everything will be streamed by Stanford(where the NCAA final 16 through final is held this year)

Line-ups that the coaches submitted for the NCAA's

Some teams have made some interesting changes.

-Florida put Slilam at 2 and moved Bangoura to 3.
-Oklahoma moves Siributwong to 5, even though he has played 3 or 4 all season.
-Ohio State puts Rola back at #1, moving Buchanan to 2
-Florida State moved Kelly-Houston to 3 which moved Smith and Davis each back a spot.

I'm biased, but A&M sure got a bad draw. They are under-ranked at #9 to start with, surely b/c of a poor indoor season (A&M doesn't really have an indoor facility to start with).

Then they have to play host Stanford followed by #1 Virginia.
Would love to seem them square off w/ Virginia. I think they could put a scare into UVA but fall just short. A&M is playing really well at the moment. Did not drop a match in the Big 12 tournament.

NCAA tournament, awesome! Hope the Cavs can get it done. They represent the state of VA proudly in tennis :)

A&M has really turned it on lately. Krajicek has found his gae again which has been key. I agree that there draw is really tough so that will probably hold them back. They have the talent to make a run to the fnal had they had an easier draw.

A&M was unlucky that Florida decided to have a great SEC tournament and that Baylor lost to Oklahoma in the Big 12 tournament (and A&M lost a chance to beat Baylor). If you look at the computer rankings for May 2, you see that Florida and A&M are very close.

1 80.33 University of Virginia
2 73.12 University of Southern California
3 71.35 University of Tennessee
4 70.85 Ohio State University
5 63.30 Baylor University
6 62.04 University of Georgia
7 60.26 Stanford University
8 58.27 University of Florida
9 58.13 Texas A&M University
10 56.75 University of Kentucky

Not to say that Florida doesn't deserve the #7 seed or anything, but A&M just needed to turn it on a little bit sooner.

Guys, you have to think in perspective of the committee. Which means you have to think like a total f*cking retard. It should make sense when you get that mindset down
