    Interesting Fact

    So I was scoping out UNI today, and found out that they are one of six teams to have never had a losing season since the NCAA started keeping records in 1981. The other five are usual suspects - Hawaii, Stanford, Nebraska, Penn St., and UCLA. I guess I had never realized how traditionally good they've been. In the words of Paul Harvey, now you know.... the *rest* of the story.

    Well, we play them next week, for one, and they're still ranked higher than we are.

    Re: Interesting Fact

    When the rankings came out and UNI was ranked higher than ISU, I thought to myself, "When did they get so good?" Well, I guess 1981 at least.....

    Good post.

    Re: Interesting Fact

    UNI should be an inspiration to those who whine about competing with larger schools with larger budgets and better facilities. UNI, for one, seems to compete pretty well - no excuses.

    The two have nothing to do with each other. I don't give two ***** about UNI Volleyball and their facts. The only thing that matters is Iowa State Volleyball.

    Re: Interesting Fact

    If I remember correctly one of the first steps in ISU's improvement after Christy arrived was being able to beat UNI.

    I think I saw you driving on I-35 recently. Had the mini-van with the bumper sticker that said "If You Ain't I-State, You Aint ****"?
