1. The NCAA does not recognize the 1995 title by UCLA due to recruiting infractions. The title and any related records have been vacated by the NCAA Committee on Infractions. UCLA utilized player Tanya Harding in winning the 1995 women's softball College World Series. UCLA recruited Harding from Queensland, Australia midway through the 1995 season, and after UCLA captured the NCAA National Championship, Harding returned to Australia without taking final exams or earning a single college credit. Despite not violating any formal rules in recruiting Harding, the incident generated heated criticism that some foreign athletes may be little more than hired-guns (see Mark Starr, No Credit For UCLA, Newsweek, June 12, 1995, at 58; see also Leigh Montville, Ringer From Down Under, Sports Illus., June 12, 1995).

2. 2005 was the first year the NCAA implemented a best-of-three title game series in which the National Champion is determined by winning two of three games.
