I don't think Gibbs will leave just because of Doyle. That is going to depend upon whether she is ready to turn pro and I think, more importantly if she is able to win team NCAA's this year.

Even if Gibbs does leave, the Cards still have a legit shot and as equal shot as UCLA. With Gibbs, I think the Cards have a stronger lineup.
Well yes, STAN is still quite formidable on paper.

However;

Tried to cull her results against known US players this year from the ITF site;

W H2H vs MCCARTHY, Kaitlyn (USA) 6-0 6-2
W H2H vs FUENTES, Camila (USA) 6-0 4-6 6-1
W H2H vs MCADOO, Rasheeda (USA) 6-1 4-6 7-5
SF W H2H vs MAKAROVA, Christina (USA) 3-6 6-1 6-2
64 W H2H vs YEE, Kimberly (USA) 6-2 6-2
64 L H2H vs KIICK, Alexandra (USA) 6-4 4-6 2-6
32 L H2H vs TOWNSEND, Taylor (USA)7-6(4) 6-7(5) 4-6
16 W H2H vs OKUNO, Ayaka (JPN) 6-3 7-6(7)
64 W H2H vs VICKERY, Sachia (USA) 6-2 6-2
64 L H2H vs BRADY, Jennifer (USA) 6-2 4-6 2-6
64 W H2H vs DEWAR, Tristen Z. (USA) 6-3 6-4
Fear the Bear?

In fact I think Jen could be even better than Krista. The sheer pace of her drive(she's a terrific ball basher) is more than Krista's, and she's more versatile too. Also her serve is definitely better. Krista is more consistent though. If Jen manages to harness her errors she'll be quite a formidable player.

P.S. When was the last time STAN had a foreign player?(I thought Hibi might go there. Maybe she IS turning pro?)
