Re: UC Riverside

UC Riverside wants to eliminate men's tennis and add sand volleyball in its place. They'll use the indoor volleyball players and coach and save on the men's tennis coaching salary and scholarships.

UC Riverside release.

Anais Dallara

Mary Macfarlane (Alabama) def. Anais Dallara (Long Beach St.) 6-1,4-6,6-3.

Dallara accomplished something that even the great, great, great, great Long Beach St. hall of famer Hannah Grady couldn't. Which is win 1 set in the NCAA singles tournament.

Makes you wonder how insignificant the great, great, great, great Hannah Grady was on a national level if she couldn't even win 1 set in the NCAA singles tournament. And for LBS to retire a tennis court for Hannah Grady, who couldn't even earn honorable mention All American status is weak.

By the way the only player in Long Beach St. program history to win a match in the NCAA singles tourney was the 25 YEAR OLD SENIOR Jing Chen.

Re: Big West - 2011-12

You crack me up.... you must still be reeling from UCLA slighting EVERYONE in the NCAA tournament by not playing their superstar # 6?

Bitterness is not healthy.

(PS... Actually, Chen is now 39 years old .... as she played in ... wait I have to look it up... 1998. That's quite a 'scoop' Jimmy Olsen )

17-1-1*

Trivia question: How many girls that have attended UC Irvine have ever qualified for the NCAA tennis individual draw? Hint: You won't need any fingers or toes.

One troubling issue though; I did notice fitting all of LB's Big West titles onto a recently received letter seemed a bit crowded .... I hate it when that happens.

WOW

That AD, with the second smallest budget in BW, seems to be in a hurry to make his 'mark' and move on?

So he changes coaches and then what? They are still underfunded and in the I.E.

I guess Form missed the word SENIOR following 25 year old despite being in large red font. I claimed Jing Chen was a 25 year old senior and not that she was 25 years old today. Form's state school reading comprehension at work.

Off the top of my head Kristina Smith's mother Maria represented UCI in the Division 1 NCAA singles tournament. Form should know this because I posted it several times in the past.

Looking it up the correct answer is 11 women. 2 qualified in Division 1 singles including Maria and 9 qualified in Divison 2.

Only an idiot doesn't know the answer to his own trivia question.

This reminds me of the time Form asked the trivia how many titles has the UCI head coach won? Form thought the answer was zero. I had to correct him that the answer was 11 titles as a head coach including winning 3 NCAA Division 2 national titles.

Another example when Form couldn't answer his own trivia question correctly.
