NCAA Women’s Volleyball Bracket

Posted on 28 November 2010 by Chuck Rey

This Thanksgiving I am thankful for ESPN’s coverage to the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Selection Show, but I am rather disappointed in the lack of priority volleyball received.  The show was “scheduled” for 3:00pm on ESPN News, but apparently Lebron James’ shoulder bump with his head coach was more important than the over 1,000 players lives that will be immediately impacted over the next few weeks.  Come on ESPN, man or woman up!
