    Some team or group must have something going on down here and they are eating at Chili's or there is some winter fraternity hazing ritual that involves relocating the team bus 900 miles away.

    Where is "down here"?

    KY State is small, predominantly black, college in Frankfort, KY.

    The bus was a mile or three west of Fort Lauderdale or perhaps forty five miles south of the Winter White House

    Thanks. I was sort of hoping for a fraternity hazing type prank.

    You would think a college would know how to spell, "thoroughbreds." HH

    There is almost certainly a story behind that spelling, though I couldn't find it.

    Obviously they ran out of room on the bus and had to get rid of a letter to make the name fit :horse:

    Kentucky State University - or more likely the taxpayers - used to give free tuition to the top 10% of KSU graduates if they attended Kentucky medical or law schools after graduation. Maybe they still do. The purpose was to give blacks preferential treatment, because we all know that blacks can't compete on a level academic playing field [<<sarcasm].

    I went to law school with a lilly white chick who graduated from KSU, and she received one of the free scholarship intended for blacks. I thought that was quite wonderful that KSU's skin color-based free tuition scheme had backfired at least this one time.

    Maybe the volleyball team did not read the admissions criteria

    Maybe that's not the KSU volleyball team.

    Ok now I am confused. Apparently there is a Kentucky State University and a University of Kentucky. I guess I found the Cats instead of the Thorobreds

    University of Kentucky is a huge school in Lexington, K State(what we call it) is a small mostly black college, but being white you can get a minority scholarship there if you think it's worth it haha.

    That is the UK vollyball team, not KSU.

    Just like there is a California State University and a University of California, Florida State and University of Florida, Georgia State and University of Georgia. I can go on...probably 47 more times.

    CALIFORNIA GRAD STUDENTS CLAIM CORRECTING THEIR SPELLING IS RACIST

    KY State used to be a power house in their respective division. I don't know if that's still the case. But IIRC they won a few National Championships - in their division.
