NCAA Provides Reason To Stare At College Girls

This likely means even more volleyball national championships for UCLA.

The NCAA approved "sand" volleyball as an emerging sport for women on Monday and cleared the way for varsity competition in 2010-11. The organization will spend the next year developing rules that will govern intercollegiate play, including regulations on financial aid, playing dates and recruiting...

The sport, known on the professional and Olympic levels as beach volleyball, will be called sand volleyball to make it more attractive to landlocked schools. Many colleges -- including Texas, Nebraska and Utah -- already participate in informal tournaments with club teams.

Most of the volleyball powerhouse schools are out west and that’s where the best beach players come from — Misty May-Treanor went to Long Beach State, Kerri Walsh is a Stanford alumni. And there is no questioning the quality of women’s athletes who play volleyball and beach volleyball.

Still, when you think of the NCAA as a bunch of middle-aged, balding white men sitting around an office in the Midwest, the thought of them spending a lot of time thinking about young women in bikini’s just feels wrong. And creepy.

Still, this is the NCAA, they will find a way to suck all the fun out of this. It is what they do.
