    Both men and women won doubles point and are getting started in singles.

    I think the #1 guy for Ole Miss is out with injury so big break for the men

    Great win on the road. Both teams missing a player due to injury. But the Gators handled it best on the evening.
    Now it's MSU on Sunday at home. Team took the university jet so they will be back in Gainesville this evening
    An additional match has been added against Bethune Cookman at home on Wednesday April 10th at 1:30.

    Very big win...congrats
    What is Federhofer's status? Is he expected back soon.
    I have to wonder if Alford is fully healthy as well, doesn't seem to be playinglike he was earlier in the spring.

    Shows how big doubles is. A few breaks here or there and the men would be a top 10 team. Bob dominating someone he should will hopefully help his confidence. I assume the Bethune match was added to ensure at least a .500 record. A few sec women's teams have added double and triple headers to up their win percentage. Problem with the .500 record as a qualifier, imo. Ole miss is good, even without their #1 though, not sure their ranking is deserved. MSU is a tough test but one we can beat at home. Last 4 at home, this team can gain huge momentum for the postseason.

    I think you nailed it on getting a match in to insure the .500 record

    If this team is going to be successful BVO has to win if he is playing 3. I'm not sure we have a legit #1, but any of those top 3 guys should win most matches at 3 and we should get our share at 2. I almost feel the same about the bottom half, Watson/Alford/Federhofer should win at 5 most matches and almost always at 6. That gives you 3/4 singles matches you have a good shot at winning.

    Billy Federhofer's status is up in the air. Will take some pictures of his foot today and than see where he stands. As for the Bethune Cookman match, yes it is now necessary to have at least a 500% record in order to be eligible for post season play. And we had the one match cancelled, earlier in the season.

    Johnson has really surprised me as the season has progressed.....really didn't expect much but he has really improved. But I think Federhofer is better and more battle tested, hope he is ok for the final run.
