The Illinois St Redbirds won the Ohio State Buckeye Classic Tournament last weekend, their first ever major tournament title.  Coach Ross Miner talks about the tourney, the Team Handball Nation website, his experience at the Aarhus Academy and how he got into coaching.

And, what’s a podcast without a little controversy so we try to answer a couple of questions:

  • Is Illinois St is poised to crack into the top 3 hegemony (West Point, Air Force, North Carolina) that has dominated collegiate handball for the last 20 years? (I try to get a little bulletin board material)
  • Should the weekend tournament format for competition should be scrapped in favor of league play?
