    Best of luck to the tennis team as they begin their fall season.

    As with golf, I believe tennis's main season is in the spring, so assume (???) these matches equate to the off-season scrimmages that the team sports play, and won't matter much or at all to rankings that start being important once the "real" season competitions start occurring in the spring. (Edit- looking at the fall schedule on cubuffs, it looks a lot more formal for tennis than other sports' scrimmages, so maybe these tournaments DO have some significance? If anyone knows, please feel free to respond.)

    Note- for those interested, cubuffs.com also just released an article ( http://www.cubuffs.com/HomePage.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600 ) featuring a story about one of the Buff's 2 freshmen (both from Melbourne Australia), Annabelle Andrinopoulos.

    I think that the fall season has some effect on the rankings, but not much more significance that that. There are also the indoor championships at the end of the fall season, like track, but the spring is what really matters.
