And what, SEC home crowd are more rabid?
Wonder how ACC's are too.
PAC 10 sports have nothing on the SEC.

Re: National Indoor Championship Starts February 18th

yeah, at least in tennis, I've been there, USC, UCLA, CAL..surprisingly tame UCLA is the more vocal of the three, and they sometimes hire a band but it's not that exciting
maybe mboyle can enlighten us with the ACC's crowd in tennis, of course.

Yeah, I figured as much, since she wasn't in the team photo that's up on the website.

As for Stanford not being prepared in May... Forood is too good of a coach to let her team sit on its laurels, only to be ambushed by Florida at the end of the year. If Florida beats Stanford, it's not because Stanford wasn't ready, it's because Florida got better over the course of the season. But I expect Stanford to improve, especially its doubles. Or at least one can hope.

The loudest college tennis match I have ever been to by far was UCI vs Long Beach St. in the 2010 Big West Tournament Finals.
Before the match Form advised to bring ear plugs and he was right. That match was so heated Form and his cronies are still whining about LBS losing to UCI.

Re: National Indoor Championship Starts February 18th

Thx for the info.

So with Taney/Tatsuno I guess Michigan is now

officially the best doubles team in the

Midwest, better than the traditional powerhouse Notre Dame.

Re: National Indoor Championship Starts February 18th

So I went to UF website to copy the score against FSU (not there yet), and stumbled upon the Indoors championship team photo.

Other than the HC looking glum and Embree wearing pink t-shirt even Boonstra was smiling this time

Wait.

Boonstra??? What was SHE doing there Kinda like Cecil coming with Duke?
