NCAA Committee Notes
We will play a little catch-up in this article as the NCAA has had some recent DIII meetings so let’s report on what’s going on in everyone’s favorite organization. The DIII Strategic Planning and Finance Committee notes can be found here. Nothing too interesting there except that the note about how DIII will receive a…… Continue reading NCAA Committee Notes
April Musing (Updated)
I probably need to check the NCAA site for notes on their management meeting. It just happened and there are typically some proposed rules that get mentioned that impact our sport. Just being lazy, which is nice. Still working on the 2023 recruits so any help is appreciated! I feel like I’ve done the least…… Continue reading April Musing (Updated)
I haven’t really looked around for schedules, but I’m sure some teams are starting to post them. My Latvian hackers did uncover the East/West Classic 2023 schedule so I thought I’d write about that to fill all of our time. To start with, what the heck are we calling this tournament? Classic? Challenge? Battle? I…… Continue reading East/West Challenge

Trinity/Southwestern Moving to SAA (Updated)
This morning Trinity announced that they (along with Southwestern) are moving to the SAA effective by the fall of 2025. I wrote about this possibility last month, which included a denial by the Southwestern Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, Ken Ralph. I would certainly go back and look at my article for some of the reasoning.…… Continue reading Trinity/Southwestern Moving to SAA (Updated)
I have written some blurbs about the transfer portal recently but for the most part I haven’t really given it too much thought in the DIII volleyball world. While doing the recruit updates, I had a coach tell me that they really don’t look at the portal at all while another said that they’ll have…… Continue reading Transfer Portal
