    Our VB team is acutally good plus our coach takes on her former school. Maybe we should start winning some FB games then we might actually be worthy of being on TV more.

    Re: We can get Volleyball matches on TV but not football?!

    VB and ladies soccer are both doing great this fall, but I don't think many fanatics on here give a rat's @$$ about these non-revenue, women's sports. Christy Johnson is doing a fantastic job with elevating the v-ball program in the last few years, especially considering where it was. The attendance to games has been improving as well, once again showing that everyone likes winning.

    I attended the Neb.-CU volleyball game in Boulder over the weekend (girlfriend dragged me to it), and I'm telling ya, check out Neb. on tv when they are on for at least a few minutes. MY GOD they have some amazons in their front line. Hate to say this about anything husker, but they are on a level above the rest of the NCAA. Saying that, it would be sweet if the lady Clones went in and shocked NU and shut up the 5 to 6 thousand that regularly attent games in Lincoln.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    There is a reason it's non revenue. It's boring. I will have to say though. If I was a single guy I would go to the volleyball game. They are the hottest chicks in the world. They are all like 6 feet tall and built very nice. It's really the only reason I would go.

    Saw the VB gals last year at the Fanfest day at the Bergstrom.

    *sigh*

    They are quite nice.

    I could not find a picture of the whole team. Here is the roster link. I did everyone a favor and looked at all the pictures and found the best two. It's Laura Cady and Kaylee Manns. Go ahead and view.

    I'm not discrediting the non-revenue sports...I want all of ISU's programs to excel. I just found it ironic that we could watch ISU/Nebraska VB on TV and not ISU/Nebraska football. Winning will cure that but that doesn't help us this year.

I think Syracuse, Temple, Army, Northern Illinois are on TV every week.
