Nope, this isn’t some intern bro from ESPNU interviewing Dagnija Medina (6-0, Latvia) of the North Florida University sand volleyball program. It’s just some guy who actually uploaded this clip to his YouTube portfolio. Not kidding, you have to see it to believe it. Remember how sand volleyball was supposed to be the next big craze in college sports? Yeah, not happening.
Instead, the ladies are being interviewed by Beef for the student TV news channel.
Posted: April 8, 2011
Premise of Video: Dagnija really is competing in this weekend’s sand volleyball national championships. Besides a few parents and friends, nobody really cares about NCAA sand volleyball because the coverage sucks. But Andy is out to change that trend. He’s going straight to the volleyball courts to find out how the sand volleyball season is going.
Climax of Video: It’s a complete trainwreck. You figure it out.
Conclusion: Yes, this interview was last year. Can we find any other media for this weekend’s championship competition? No. Just when you’d figure a local TV station would have one of their goofball reporters getting volleyballs drilled off his melon, those videos don’t exist. Instead, sand volleyball is left with Andy’s portfolio piece.
