Time to evangelize men's NCAA volleyball eslewhere in the country

I think it would be nice if there were an NCAA men's preseason tournament
somewhere where there is already a base of support for the women's
game.  Nebraska, Illinois, and other places come to mind.  

As far as I know, there is the UCSB volley*** in January and teams
occasionally tour Hawaii.  This is preaching to the choir.  Maybe such
a midwestern tournament could help jumpstart boys programs in junior
high and high school.  It would also be good for the existing men's collegiate
club teams to play and improve.

Beats me where the money would come from.  Maybe the NVL would be
interested since it has (I hope) sponsors and this would help to
generate interest in their professional product.

Does anyone have info on time and place (something more specific than
UCSB).  I'm hoping to make the pilgrimmage this year.

I couldn't agree more!  I'd especially like to see a tournament down
here in the south (***ia), so we can get some of these boys
interested in volleyball rather than just basketball and football.
The one thing that men's volleyball in this country needs is
grassroots programs in other areas besides California.

George Mason holds early season tournaments with East Coast teams. Bring
some of your friends and potential volleyball players up to Fairfax!
