Off Campus What's Really a JV Team?

Why have a playoff in college golf? It gos in the books as a tie, unless of course you are the team who won the playoff. Tonight I was sent two e-mail press releases, one from Georgia and one from Purdue. The headline from Georgia reads: “Georgia Wins Liz Murphey Classic in Playoff Over Purdue.” The one from Purdue reads: “PURDUE GOLFERS SHARE TOURNAMENT MEDALIST HONORS.” What goes in the official results for NCAA purposes is a tie, co-champs, share the title, etc ... This is the same with the individual part of college golf tournaments. Why even have the playoff? I know the answer: There is only one first-place trophy ... so, save the second place trophy for next year and purchase a duplicate for this year’s co-champion. That should do it. Plus these teams have flights to catch. – Lance
