Dogs get a thrilling 4-3 win yesterday over W Michigan. Tennis, I see we added 2 new guys after the Fall season which I don’t remember ever happening. Saw they played and both also won. Super tough schedule as always. Tennis Dog, any thoughts?

Bad loss. Lost a lot of guys. Think it’s going to be a pretty tough season.

Northern Illinois is not a good tennis team. At least historically you shouldn't be losing to MAC teams. The type of team Drake used to beat 7-0. 
I think our pipeline of Brits that started with guys like James McKie and Robin Goodman has gone away, and I don't think we've picked up guys who match the talent level of 2013 and 2015. 

I noticed that they aren't playing Minnesota for the first time in... As long as I can remember. Maybe Minnesota said you aren't good enough to play us anymore. 

The nice thing about this schedule is that you have a ton of good wins available for the taking.

Agree. Had a ton of great Brits the last 6-8 years.

I don't think it will get this bad, but an 13 loss losing streak until we hit Illinois State could happen. I just don't know how good DePaul is at tennis. Michigan State isn't very good, but they are probably at least as good as Northern Illinois and Gonzaga. 

Odd that we're playing Middle Tennessee and Wichita State twice each this year. Maybe was hard for all three teams to get on schedules, as all three are historically good midmajors when it comes to tennis.

Went to the match against Alabama. Got the doubles point, but got outhit in every match after that. Felt like each guy was on their back foot all match, Bama got to the first strike quicker and felt like they got 90% of the game deciding dueces

Have we lost our recruiting pipeline? Basically getting shut out in most matches. We did win some sets against Oregon.

And we get crushed by our in state rival Iowa 4-0 who we had beaten like 10 years in a row until last year. This is a bummer.

Legit might be looking at something like a 4 win, 24 loss season.

I know nothing about Tennis, but it is obviously bad recruiting. Need a new coach. there a plenty of them out there. There is no reason to pay a coach in a non revenue sport who does not have success. move on to the next one.

Drakey - your observation is right on 
I have contributed money in the past to the program but probably won't again until I see regime change
 Drake's Men's Tennis should never  be this non-competitive 

 GO BULLDOGS !!

Was up 3-0 on Michigan State. Even had a match point to clinch the match. Nope. Lose the match 3-4. That one has to suck more than all the butt kickings we've endured

Brutal loss. Boys are definitely playing better, Michigan St a lower Big Ten team we again normally beat. Finally win the doubles point and then up 3-0 only to lose the last 4 matches. Tough.
