  1. I'm not sure if it'll be shown in Chicago either - it's listed for 1:30 p.m. (CDT), but none of the Fox regionals are listing it as yet, so I'm pessimistic.
  2. One W and 2 L's today at the qualies in Waco. Alastair Gray lost 4 and 4 to Vasil Kirkov and Eduardo Roldan lost 6-7 (3-7), 0-6 to Eric Morris. But Tadeas Paroulek won easily 2 and 1 over Nevin Arimilli and has advanced to the main draw along with both Rybo and Nick Chappell (whose name I didn't see until today). So, 3 Frogs remain - Rybo will face off against Jonathan Gray (ATP#597 - a Brit but no relation to Ali), Nick will play Daniel Nguyen (ATP#400) and Tadeas will play Adam Jones (NR - also a Brit). All are first rounders.
  3. I'm actually feeling good about this game. First, I'll have Saturday off and will be able to watch live (presumably - when and on what channel will it be). And second, our schizophrenic nature seems likely to mean that we'll be "on" this week and will fumble fewer times in our red zone and spot KState multitudinous points like we've done against SMU and Iowa State.
  4. Texas' Yuya Ito ended up winning the ITA All-American in Tulsa over Florida's Sam Riffice 4 and 4. This is a bad sign, with Ito rising, the Longhorns' chances of repeating a Big 12 championship and possibly another national championship are rising as well. But in Waco, there was good news yesterday as Gray, Paroulek and Roldan rolled to first round qualie W's - Eduardo won 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-0) over Peter Bothwell, Tadeas won 1-6, 6-3, 10-4 over Baylor's Sven Lah and Ali won 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 12-10 over Eliot Spizziri. (Reese Stalder lost as expected (6-7, (3-7), 4-6) to the U.K.'s Findel-Hawkins). Today, Gray will play Vasil Kirkov and Paroulek will face Nevin Arimilli, while Eduardito will get a day off. Rybo awaits the main draw. Cam Norrie v. Lopez will be at 5:00 a.m. (CDT) at Antwerp.
  5. Cam Norrie (ATP#64) has traveled to Antwerp and is scheduled to face Feliciano Lopez (ATP#61) tomorrow. He's also teaming in doubles with Soon Woo Kwon. The ITA All-American Final will be between Florida's Sam Riffice and Texas' Yuya Ito today. Alastair Gray, Tadeas Paroulek, Eduardo Roldan and Reese Stalder are in Waco in the qualies in the Futures tourney there this week. Widow drew the top seed - Jack Findel-Hawkins and won't be favored, but Eduardito, Ali and Courageous Heart got better draws and will face Peter Bothwell, Svan Lah and Eliot Spizzirri, respectively. Rybo is also there, but he's qualified (barely) for the main draw.

    Major changes in this week's poll - needless to say, no votes for TCU. 1. Alabama 2. LSU 3. Clemson 4. Ohio State 5. Oklahoma 6. Wisconsin 7. Penn State 8. Notre Dame (above Georgia??) 9. Florida 10. Georgia 11. Auburn 12. Oregon 13. Utah 14. Boise State (in past years, they'd be higher) 15. Texas (with 2 losses?) 16. Michigan 17. Arizona State 18. Baylor 19. SMU 20. Minnesota 21. Cincinnati 22. Missouri 23. Iowa 24. Appalachian State (??) 25. Washington A&M finally out; Tulane at 26.
  7. I guess I missed all the good games today, but Washington v. Arizona is a good one late. The Huskies lead 27-17 late in the 3rd.
  8. So, who are we for in the Red River Rivalry? I really don't like OU dominating the conference year-after-year, but I REALLY don't like seeing Texas win any game at any time, so I guess I'm for OU. Not that we're going to challenge for the title this year or anything...
  9. Ali Gray fell 2 and 1 to Florida's Oliver Crawford today in the Round of 16 at the All-American in Tulsa, so that's it for the Frogs in this huge tourney. Given that Gray is ranked 23rd in the ITA pre- season rankings, the Round of 16 is actually a little better than where he was expected to go, so it was a good tourney for him (although I was hoping for better). The overall TCU record was 10-6, which is pretty good (although I was hoping for better). Next up will be the ITA Texas Regionals in Waco.
  10. Alastair Gray advanced to the Round of 16 today with a 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 victory over USC's Riley Smith at the All-American in Tulsa. He'll next play a very tough opponent in Florida's Oliver Crawford tomorrow. The Frogs' singles record is now 10-5 in this tourney. But Ali and Jacob Fearnley lost 3 and 4 in the doubles to the 3rd seeded Florida doubles team of Ingildsen/Berducci.
  11. Unfortunately, both Luc Fomba and Jacob Fearnley lost today - Luc 6-1, 3-6, 4-6 to Oradini and Jacob love and 2 to Malbasic. So Ali is the only Frog left standing although both of the others, I think, will get matches in the consolation bracket. Gray will face Riley Smith of USC tomorrow.
  12. The early results from the All-American in Tulsa are in and Alastair Gray has advanced to the 2nd round with a 4 and 1 win over Jonas Ziverts. He will next play the winner of the match between USC's Riley Smith and Ohio State's Camron Kingsley. Luc Fomba and Jacob Fearnley play this afternoon.
  13. With Norrie out in Shanghai and Rybo out at Fairfield, attention shifts back to Tulsa for the All-American. For some reason, I couldn't find the results from today's matches, but the main draw has been announced so we can glean who won and who didn't. The 64-player main draw includes Ali Gray, who will play Arizona's Jonas Ziverts tomorrow, but he had already qualified. And it also includes Luc Fomba, who will face a very tough opponent in Mississippi State's Giavanni Oradini, and Jacob Fearnley, who will play Arizona's Filip Malbasic. So we can assume that Luc and Jacob won their matches over Musitelli and Schacter although who knows by what scores. Tadeas Paroulek apparently lost to Rengifo, but he's listed as a "Lucky Loser" with a "sign-in" at 8:30 tomorrow morning, so he's likely to play either in the Consolation bracket or, possibly, be an alternate for the main draw. This means that we'll have at least 3 Frogs in the main draw and that our combined record, so far, is 9-3 overall, which is pretty good. It'd be nice, however, for Luc, Jacob and Ali to each go deep into the tourney.

    Uh, I'm not very optimistic about going 11-2 with no real passing game and a porous defense and a tendency to fumble in our red zone. I think we're going to struggle to get bowl eligible. Sadly...
  15. Meanwhile, in China, Cam Norrie, after trips to Zhuhai and Beijing, has been playing in the Shanghai Open. He first won 2 qualie matches over Schnur and Fabbiano, then he won his opening rounder in the main draw 7-5, 6-2 over Gilles Simon, but this morning, he played and lost to ATP#4 Daniil Medvedev 3 and 1. So, he won 3 and lost 1 in Shanghai and his loss was only to the 4th best player in the world. Not bad. And Alex Rybakov just finished his opening rounder at the Fairfield Challenger, losing in 3 sets to Jack Draper (ATP#340) 1-6, 6-2, 5-7. Alex has been steadily moving back up in the rankings and is now #597, but he needs to actually get some W's and go deeper in the Challengers like he's been doing in the Futures.
