The team has rolled this year. Are the west coast teams not playing this season... otherwise, it is hard to believe our rankings.

Yeah I saw that earlier and thought maybe USC went with different people, but after checking the box scores, it was the same partners.
I remember a couple of years ago, we went to the championship game of the NCAA tourney undefeated and ?UCLA? beat us in the final even though we had beaten them earlier.

I had begun to wonder if the PAC 10 was playing this season. Both the Trojans and Bruins have played fewer games to date... maybe conference only?
I was encouraged to see our #1 pair come back to win in the second match, after being unscathed to this point of the season.

We lost the first match 1-4. We are ahead in the 2nd match 2-0, but behind early in the other 3.

LSU lost both matches yesterday to UCLA, but has beaten USC in the first match today 3-2. USC beat UCLA 5-0 earlier this year.
I think it's safe to say that the best 4 teams are playing in LA today.

So we lost the 2nd match 2-3 to UCLA. It was very close.
Any of the 4 teams could win the natty.
If I'm ranking them, I'd go UCLA at 1, USC at 2, FSU at 3 and LSU at 4.
We have LSU one more time and we'll see one or both of USC/UCLA at nationals.

I'd rank them #1 UCLA #2 FSU #3 USC #4 LSU because FSU split with USC on the road and USC lost 1 (maybe 2 don't know) because FSU has played almost double the matches. With Championship in Gulf Shores it will be interesting.

Not going to argue, but my rationale was that USC beat UCLA earlier in the season 5-0.
It's a hair's difference either way IMO.
