    Next year with more experience and the addition of some talented youth, they an compete to a new level.

    I love that they lost. They ran from Texas and the Big 12 but they cant hide from them forever. I dont care if its volleyball or any other sport, I want Nebraska to lose every single time they compete in anything. That isnt realistic, so I would settle for them losing to Texas in any sport any time they meet.

    Nebraska played Texas in Austin early this season, and lost in 5 sets, 15-12 in the fifth. A great match. Nebraska VB is very young - they aren't going anywhere...and I wish they were still in the conference. I'm sure CJL feels the same way.

    I'm sure Nebraska volleyball would much rather be in the Big 12. Only have to beat Texas and occasionally us/one of the Kansas to get the conference title. Big 10 is just loaded and not nearly as good of a chance of winning the conference.

    USC and Wash shouldn't have been in the same region. USC would beat Wisc 3-0, even if they had to travel to Madison to do it.

    Robinson was a huge get for NU. She carried the youngsters in the early season. Nice when a conference POY walks in.

    To be for Texas over Nebraska is a tough call. I am not exactly a big Texas fan. It is hard to say which is worse, Texas, or the Big ten.

    And their setter transfered from Tennessee also. Wonder how their freshman setter feels about getting "transfered" over.

    Except for KU basketball and UT football, I'd go Big 12 all the way.

    Having been able to beat them (UT) in recent years, says a lot about ISU and the program. Selling that to recruits, and having the national champion in your conference to compete against far out weighs any benefit the other way. We would benefit greatly from a B1G dropoff, IMO.

    If you noticed, the PAC12 teams have a sprinkling of players from Texas. It would be good to have them stay in conference, too. At ISU, of course, playing against the in-state school that overlooked them.

    I didnt know that Eckerman was from Waterloo. Since I didnt know she was from Waterloo- I dont remember us recruiting her. Did we have a chance to land her? She is a beast!

    Wow - Wisconsin looks great. Texas is the first seeded team they have had to play in the tournament, but the Badgers are rolling. They finished fourth in the Big Ten, and are one set up on the #1 team.

    Figured I would look it up and see if there was a thread in the volleyball forum.

    Short answer to my question above: A resounding NO!
