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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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

Plotkin, Iyer? Don't remember if they competed in the NCAA last year. Ilcinkas was actually PLAYING in the tourney and got injured DURING THE MATCH. TOTALLY DIFFERENT.

And r~ight, Then obviously NU coach was dreaming too when she said that she felt Cal was the best team in the country, eh?

this is the link; http://www.aggieathletics.com/ncaa20...ch11women.html

Sweet Dreams

And uh...last time I checked Juricova was losing the 2nd set 2-3

Let's see, Cal would've won the dbls point,

#1 could go either way,

#2 Cossou will win (ranked 26), Nze 37th

#3 Z

#4 Ilcinkas

#5 Bobusic

#6 dunno

Cal losing to Duke 2-4? Absolutely NO way, sir.

You do know that Bobusic, #5, had a monster performance at NW R regional and almost

upset Boonstra, #1 of UF who defeated Barte at the NCAA?

Cal had to fill #6 by utilising Ravelojaona, Bobusic had to play 4, Chang 5, respectively.

It was an emergency situation. Again, Duke got lucky.
I could just as easily say Cal got lucky. Liz Plotkin tore her ACL. Tara Iyer hurt her back and could not play. Tara was a top 50 national player and Liz Plotkin was one of the best recruits in the country when she got to Duke. Injuries are part of tennis. But when you beat a team 4-0, luck has nothing to do with it. You would have won anyway. It's not like Cal number 2 was up huge when the injury occurred. Maybe it would have been 4-2 or something without the injury, but I just think you're dreaming if you think Cal had a chance in that match the way the Duke girls played.
