NFCA Scoreboard Goes "Live"

Somebody had to be first and two teams from the Sunshine State roared out of the gate Jan. 29, to show their Y2K readiness. The result: a little happiness and a little heartache for both.

Florida International hosted South Florida in a nonconference doubleheader in Miami last Friday and checked in with a split decision for the first of many battles to come over the next four months between NFCA member schools. Florida International blanked the Bulls 2-0 in game one, then fell 4-3 in the closer to register the first posts on the NFCA Scoreboard for Division I.

This week will provide plenty of Scoreboard action with head-to-head contests and tournaments slated in all corners of the country. It's still a tad early to keep track of the conference races, but if you want to get a view of what it looks like then click the link for "College Conference Races" and check out the standings for Conference USA to get familiar with the new feature on NFCA Home Plate.

While you're there, we ask our readers to take a moment to help us straighten up our act. Look at the list of "Independents" in the conference races. Because of the annual reorganization of conferences around the country we may not have some school assigned to the right conference, or we might have a school listed as an "Independent" as well as having them assigned to a conference. So check your conference, and check the list of "D1 Indpendents", "D2 Independents", "D3 Independents" and "NAIA Independents" to make sure your school is properly assigned and not duplicated.
