Well, Ashley,

We had a 'similar problem a couple of years ago with a flood of posts about
Stanford and UCLA's women's teams.  See, it seems that people who watched
those matches were the only ones reporting anything.  Rresults: lots about
the Cardinal and Bruins, nothing else.  Problem was solved by other
folks speaking up about their local teams (Illinois, Texas, etc. etc.).

Your post indicated that you're in W.Lafayette, Indiana.
(from th Organization: Purdue University line)

That's not too far from Ball State, or IPFW.  How about a road trip?

If not some varsity programs, what about collegiate club?  The midwest
usually has some decent teams (Illinois, Wisconsin, et al), why not try
to catch a tournament - I think that the men's team from Indiana usually
has a tournament sometime early in the season.

Just some thoughts.  Don't be afraid to do some reporting of your own.
I too would like to hear about some of the other teams (hey Zemp and
you Buckeye boys, are you listening?)

Then Spuds butts in...

eh ashley, mb hits the nail on the head..don't be afraid to do some
reporting.  i'm one of the quilty parties involved in all the hawaii
hype, BUT, i also enjoy reading results from other schools - collegiate
or otherwise.  and i would love for someone to post some Ball State
results - i saw them play o'hea.  i don't know if you remember last year

nike festival results, that made a lot of people all over the place very
happy.  the point is most of us bugga's just love volleyball but we only
can report what we see, so if everyone else chips in - then rsv can only
get mo betta.

short sermon by spuds

        Ooh, you go, Spuds!  :-)  Right now, those of us who want non-MPSF info
have to go for those Internet frequent-flier miles and visit far-flung web
sites to get more than win/loss information.  Some sites of interest
include:

MIVA:
        Ohio State at
http://www.osu.edu/units/athletics/sports/volleyballmen/volleyballmen...
                (is that URL long enough or what?)
        Loyola (Chicago) at http://orion.it.luc.edu/~jpyrz/teamnf.html
                (the "unofficial" site -- the official site is skimpy)

EIVA:
        Penn State unofficial men's page at
http://cac.psu.edu/~dsb134/vball/vball.html
                (quite extensive with links to the Collegian)
        Rutgers-Newark at http://pegasus.rutgers.edu/~anmurtha/ruvball.html
                (only minus is the horrendous red background on the home page -- ouch!)
        George Mason at http://www.pubs.gmu.edu/sports/volleyball/

Happy hunting!
