Memo to NCAA: Make Beach Volleyball An Official Sport

Avid tailgaters, especially college students, will tailgate before any type of sporting event. Lacrosse, fencing, swim meets, you name it. College kids aren’t just tailgating before football games. With that in mind I would highly encourage the NCAA to consider adding beach volleyball to the list of sports officially sanctioned. To back up my claim that people will come out and support the sport, I provide visual proof this sport has fan appeal.

The NCAA is considering adding the sport although they are calling it ‘Sand Volleyball’. I don’t care what you call it. I’d definitely break out the grill and cooler and tailgate before any of these matches.
