    Just for anyone interested in this kind of thing, The Volleytalk forum I visit had someone start a thread that linked to this article in EspnW(omen) ( http://espn.go.com/espnw/news-commentary/article/12168580/why-care-year-ncaa-convention ) written by a Luke Cyphers that discusses what might come out of an NCAA convention that's evidently taking place this week outside Washington DC, and what it might mean going forward with the "Power 5" conferences proposed changes, with some of the article specifically guessing what it might mean to women's sports, as well as any other non-revenue sports. (I don't know enough about the topic to have any opinion on the quality or accuracy of the commentary.)

    The volleytalk thread (thanks to user Phaedrus over there for starting the thread and providing the link to the article) is here- http://volleytalk.proboards.com/thread/57539/ncaa-meetings-power-womens-sports .

    Interesting article to me. Be curious to see how this all ends up- both for the Buffs specifically, and how it might affect competitive balance throughout the national college community. Also, as someone who cares as much about the "non-revenue" sports as football, it will be interesting to see what if anything might change for those "other" sports. In general, from what I could understand, just from the aspect of looking at competitive balance in getting new recruits, it sounds like for "Power 5" conferences - changes good for getting recruits in all or almost all sports; almost all other schools (assume a school like Notre Dame (independent in football, anyway) will be fine? Don't know about a school like BYU?)- not so good.
