I'm afraid your argument just doesn't hold, and it is you who is being short sighted.
The only hope is that this is NCAA only, and the ITA refuse to do likewise in dual play for the regular season.
To follow this thought... We are more passionate than the stats bear out. Of the current US WTA Top 200 out of 20 US girls only Julia Cohen, Irina Falconi, Jill Craybas, and, and ...guess what no one else even played college tennis. So you haven't made your point. We will do fine again drama...passionate but unsubstantiated. We will still have US WTA stars with this change at the NCAA dual match championships..
I agree with you however it may only be a NCAA Chmp thing, so everyone can relax.
