    Default NCAA sport

    badminton is already an NCAA sport (for the past couple of years though I am pretty sure they don't want to admit it). we just had the NCAA National Collegiate tournament in April @ Albright College, Reading PA. We (Drexel Univ) came in 2nd Place in Men's.

    Last year it was held on the west coast, I believe @ Stanfor Univ. Couldn't go there. Our univ don't give us any money :-(

    ncaa? tv coverage? dream on! and why your school didn't give you any money? simple...they know that they won' get anything back! wake up my friend! you live in the US. everything here is on the dollar. money money money!!! if not a gazzillion dollars is involved, it does not exist! I'll bet you this. if some rich bastard sponsors a badminton tourney with the first place prize money is about 5 to 10 million dollars. I am so sure that there will be tv coverage, and the entire nation will go nuts on the sport! currently, the top dollar prize for first place winner is less than 300 dollars in the US.

    badminton is not a money sport. it's a sport of passion. only those retailers stores make money. the players don't.

    AND THAT'S THE AGONIZING FACT BEHIND IT ALL!

    NCAA? YES, it was definitely NCAA tournament...it's a different story that nobody want to admit it or even knows about it

    tv coverage ?? No, we didn't have any of that...just one article in the local newspaper in Reading, PA....i haven't seen the article myself...

    go to this site...

    g2k, here's the link...

    http://www.geocities.com/mida_shuttlecocks/2001Collegiate/2001CollegiateResults.htm

    this is by no way an accurate assessment of which is the best college because many colleges might not have been able to attend...for eg next year this tournament is going to be held on the west coast and we won't be able to attend (though we came in 2nd place in teh men's)

    but Howard Univ. is definetly good...they even have a coach who chalks out strategies and an olympic qualifier from Kenya playing for them...

    the girls from UCSD were definetly good...i think one of them is even ranked nationally in the US..
