Geographically Challenged

Once again, geography skills in the U.S. are questioned.  This time, the NCAA placed Boise State in a sub-Regional tennis tournament in Georgia May 12.  Yeah, Florida State, Boise State's opponent, is close to Georgia.  Boise State?  Not so much.

The NCAA also put the Boise State gymnastics team in the Southern Regional in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  

The confusion could lie in the fact that there is a Boise City, Oklahoma and perhaps the NCAA thinks Boise State is in Oklahoma.  Someone needs to tell the NCAA that Boise, Idaho is in fact where Boise State is, and that that is a different place that Boise City, Oklahoma is--that Boise State is not in the South but in the Northwest.
