Thanks. Some stuff in there I certainly did not know.


Namely, the opportunity to make a decent living playing professionally outside the US and the Upper Midwest being a source of talent. I figured it was mostly a California and Florida thing.

Interesting that you singled out the SEC. Though certainly not at the level of the PAC 12 and Big 10, they do appear considerably better than the ACC top to bottom. Granted, even with the money they throw at football coaches, I guess the popularity of that sport leaves enough money left over to do more in volleyball than the ACC does.

And while I’d agree that we won’t contend with the elite programs without a serious investment, it seems we should be able to be contend among a weak conference for an NCAA postseason bid with what we do have. That alone should turn heads and bring in some money and we can build from there. Baseball and tennis were in pretty bad shape at one time, but winning cures many ills.
