While the debate raged on all night about the BCS, I was busy watching the Georgia men's tennis team win its sixth National Championship defeating Texas. This makes it back to back championships for the Dogs, and in the process they became the first team to repeat since the 1998 Stanford team did it. The team lost the doubles and the first singles point but rallied for four straight singles victories to win the title, 4-2.
Nobody expected Coach Diaz to have his team in the tournament much less the championship match against the Longhorns, having lost #1 singles and doubles player (and veritable giant John Isner). #4 UGA defeated #1 ranked UVA Monday in Tulsa to advance to tonight's championship match.
For having watched 0 college tennis in my life, the passion and emotion of collegiate athletics was at its best Tuesday evening. I watch a good bit of pro tennis and needless to say, despite my bias, the tennis that was played tonight did not disappoint. A truly exciting atmosphere and the drama of watching Georgia trying to win a NC made everything that much more incredible.
Hats off to the Dogs!
