Thank you rayson. Haven’t been on VT in a while, didn’t see this by Vinnie.
Didn’t want it to get buried on the ESPUN post so here is the link

Penn State has had problems in the past adhering to the school’s out-of-school policy. A couple of years ago, team flew in the day before and it showed when they played. Pav had forgotten about the MLK holiday that wouldn’t have counted against PSU’s rule. but by the time he realized it, they couldn’t afford to pay for the change.

    That’s a shame. PSU has become an elite school in both men’s and women’s VB, and I always considered Coach Pav to be a class act. Hope they come back soon.

    Hope the Warriors have a good run next year…

    Well at least UH won’t go 0-3 next season in the Outrigger, I’ll defnitely be skipping the Springfield match in person.

    Missing the Springfield match would be ill advised. They made it to the 2011 EIVA Finals after defeating George Mason. They did lose to Penn State in the EIVA Finals, but to disrespect a team because they’re not ‘Penn State’ is just poor fan-manship…

    They are the Molten DIII Invitational Champions and are host the Inaugural NCAA DIII Tournament in 2012.

    Watch the sport for the sport, not the team name on the jersey.
