1. Champs Committee Recap

Division III | - The Official Site of the NCAA
by Jeremy Villanueva, NCAA

"The Division III Championships Committee is recommending the Management Council approve funding to broadcast the 2022 Division III Women's Basketball Championship game.

This one-time agreement will be similar to the contract agreement for Division II women's basketball to broadcast its semifinals and championship games.

The committee had previously approved funding for production costs for the 2023 championship game during the joint women's basketball championship with Divisions I and II in Dallas. At the request of the Championships Committee, the NCAA broadcast services staff continues to explore a long-term solution for the Division III Women's Basketball Championship game to be televised annually."

Elsewhere ... 

  • Approved a pilot program this academic year that each sport committee, where applicable, will post the first published regional rankings alphabetically. 
  • Approved that the softball championship date formula be moved one week later to match the dates of the baseball championship, effective with the 2023 championship.
  • Endorsing being more lenient on what is considered viable commercial space, including 6 a.m. departures, multiple splits and driving farther to the airport.

    In Axios PMwe showed you the base of the world's largest tree, the General Sherman sequoia, wrapped in a fire-resistant aluminum blanket to protect against wildfire. (See it here.)

    It turns out that foil is now a thing for houses, too.

    • Photo above: Martin Diky encased his house near Lake Tahoe in $6,000 of fire-resistant aluminum foil as fire approached Meyers, Calif.

    The company where Diky bought his wraps, Firezat Inc. in San Diego, gets 95% of sales from the U.S. Forest Service and National Park Service, AP reports.

    • The Forest Service has wrapped 600 to 700 buildings, bridges, communication towers and other structures this year alone.
