Agree and Boland's last class has not turned out great,


or even very good even though Ross who I think was the #1/2 American recruit and Lord a top 10 blue chip were in that class. The 3rd guy Krylo was a lower blue chip or maybe 5 star and he transferred out to play for Boland at Baylor. He never did much at UVA or Baylor. Ross has played mostly at 2 or 3 and done OK, but he has not won consistently at either position. Soderlund, another Boland recruit, has had injury problems in the past and I incorrectly thought he would dominate at #1 this year. I know that I have been spoiled by Boland's incredible success (4 Natty's in 5 years, which is and was unheard of in all college sports although SC did it in tennis a few years back.

Since I live 30 miles from WF, I am going to Sunday's match at their indoor courts. After the UL and NCS losses , I am not expecting a lot, but on paper we should be as good as they are after they lost their former NCAA champ and #1 player Gojo to the pros.

Just to restate the obvious. Losing Brandon was a devastating blow to this year's team and the next 2 teams. If we end being a #15 to #25 ranked team this year, Other than men's LAX, tennis may well be the best men's team in this academic year.
