Pretty tight there for that 16 spot. Could Texas take it with a couple of good wins in the Big 12 tournament?

Re: ITA tennis rankings published next week, what do the TF experts say

Does anyone know how the NCAA tournament placement works? Specifically is Cal most likely to draw the first Pac-10 team that is not hosting a regional (i.e. as of now USC)?

This is the memo that explains it. It is also found as a link from the ITA ranking page.

I believe that they avoid having same conference teams play each other in the first round.

Re: ITA tennis rankings published next week, what do the TF experts say

oops, that memo and this handbook explain the procedures. I find the handbook confusing, it is as if they say that they will be using calculation with strength of schedule, with three other criterias, and then say ignore that, we are going to use the ITA rankings.

Re: ITA tennis rankings published next week, what do the TF experts say

Thoughts:

Baylor They don't start one American girl.
I think Flordia being ranked below UNC is silly. Florida hasn't lost a match since indoors (where come on, they aren't exactly an indoor powerhouse) and they crushed UNC 6-1. (Yes, I know rankings don't work quite like this)
Stanford finally a top 8 seed!

A few strong teams that you could argue are leading the pack (e.g. Baylor, Florida) but the tourney looks to be quite open this year.

Victoria Azarenka Venus Williams
Sloane Stephens Christina McHale

The only good win that would help Texas in the rankings is beating Baylor. Beating any other team in the Big 12 Tournament wont help them at all.

With you pretty much wanting to give the trophy to Baylor or Florida, that's normally the kiss of death especially with so many strong teams out there this year. I could see one of eight or nine teams that could win the Championship this year!

What do you mean "wanting to give the trophy to Baylor or Florida"? Those are the last two teams I want to see win, especially Florida. And kiss of death for what? It would be bad if I was competing against these teams this year, but I'm not. How could my comment in any way be a kiss of death?

I didn't mean that Cal would draw a Pac-10 opponent in the first round but rather that it is quite likely that they will have USC in their regional. I'm assuming that Washington will head to UCLA. ASU to Stanford and then Cal to USC.
