Poly volley off to Athens

The Cal Poly volleyball team earned the No. 16 seed to the NCAA Tournament on Sunday but was not rewarded with a host site.
The Mustangs will instead travel to Athens, Ohio, to play Xavier in the first round on Friday.
Cal Poly (21-7) lost to Xavier (24-10) in five games on Sept. 14 at the ASICS/Coca-Cola Invitational in San Francisco.
The winner of the first-round match advances to play the winner of host Ohio (26-15) and Purdue (18-13).
See Monday’s Tribune for more on this story. The 64-team bracket can be found here.

no love for the left Coast.

UCLA, Hawaii (WAC), San Diego (WCC champ), California, and Poly (Big West champ) all get shipped out. USC gets no favors for hosting. San Diego, Poly, and Hawaii all should have hosted.

The NCAA sucks. Let's face it, the east coast conferences call the shots, but this year is downright blatant.

This could also be a commentary regarding the Cal Poly gym facility. But then again, all of the other teams are also getting shipped back east. The NCAA does suck !!!
