Re: NCAA Draws Posted - The road to Athens

Thanks for posting that. I watched it on ESPNEWS but couldn't find the draw online.

I hate how the NCAA does their seeds 1. vs. 16, 2 vs. 15 etc. That sucks!

*Stanford vs. Baylor (I knew it was already happening thought)
*USC vs. Cal in the Second Round Though Cal did win both matches this year 5-2.
*Duke NOT hosting mboyle
*Florida should steam roll their way to the R16 but Gerogia Tech played well in the ACC tournament

Unlike normal tournaments, for the round of 16 the teams are planted. 1 vs 16, etc. As was pointed out the Cal v. USC in regionals has high interest for a regional. Have the Pac-10 kill each other off early.

It has me a bit worried. Interestingly, both times they met Cal did not have the regular line-up (Juricova, Cossou, Andersson, Siwosz, Goransson, Davis) although they won 5-2 each time.

Re: NCAA Draws Posted - The road to Athens

I thought Northwestern was ranked 5. How come they are in the #6 spot???

Yea it doesn't bode well for USC when Cal beats them 5-2 without Cal's #2.

Re: NCAA Draws Posted - The road to Athens

Too many rematches or potential rematches, the regionalization of the tournament tends to do that. Makes for a less than exciting tournament when you play the same teams you did in the regular season, especially conference wise. Oh well, no tournament is perfect, and it's not a big revenue generator.

Probably took into account ND's win over Nwestern in the regular season? Of course, how is UNC the 2 seed when they got smacked up by Florida? Not that it really matters the difference between the 2 and 3 seed, but if they did that for ND and NW, why not for those 2?

I would pick Cal to win, but USC seemed to be playing well by the end of the season. and Cal may have slipped off a little mostly from Cossou missing some matches or only playing doubles. But even if all of Cal's players are (hopefully) healthy, it could be a tight match.

If team's play to their seeding (which is rare).........NU 'gets' to play Florida vs. ND playing Michigan. If you were picking FL or MI, who would you rather play..........right.........

So, I'd love to know how the committee makes seeding decisions.

Although in the end, whoever wins the tourney this year has to get through Florida (my opinion), so whether you play them in Q, S or Final really doesn't matter.......

1st thank you 2nd serve

Huh? at USC Cal played their full lineup I think?

Juricova Sanchez
Cossou Ramos
Andersson Lao
Siwosz Pulido
Davis Andrews
Radeva Kinstler

Ah you mean Goransson didn't play?
