Great news on the women

I don't follow them as closely but good to hear.
Interesting to hear Dex say that about the men, I have to say I just don't see it happening. Our best chance would be if and only if Carl returns and we add another 2 star recruits or transfers. To put in perspective we were 35 in the country this last year. Now, it was early in the year so lets give us the benefit of the doubt and say we were 25. We lost to NCST at home and they were 7 but probably more like 15. NCST played UNC at home and got beat in about 90 minutes, didn't even win a set. For us to even compete for a title we would need most likely Goetz and Ross playing 4/5, and none of the other players are most likely good enough to play in the lineup of a national title team. I'm optimistic about the new recruits, seems like a solid class, but none of the recruits on paper are as good as Ross was coming in. Let's say one of them is good enough to play 6 then that still leaves spots for 2 great players in need. Now if Carl returns there is no doubt we will be better, and if we add one more I think we can challenge for top 10. But there is a big gap between trying to be top 10 and winning it all. Also keep in mind every team in the country will be great this year, as we can get Carl back for another year so can players like Holt Blumberg Ito Sisgaard Galarneau and many other solid players in addition to new recruits. Teams will be totally jacked up this season, just getting to top 10 will be impressive.
