    WVolleyBall; We're 0-73 vs Nebraska ?#?@?

    Sounds like we had a good turnout Sat vs Nebraska - almost 5,000, but I can't believe we've never beaten them. And the 73 game losing streak goes back to 1975! Probably one of the most lopsided domination in any collegiate sport. It's so bad, that we've only won two sets off them in the last 14 years; and one of them was Saturday!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~


    Second-ranked Nebraska beat the Cyclones 25-21, 20-25, 27-25, 25-18 before a crowd of 4,294 at Hilton Coliseum.

    Iowa State has never beaten the Cornhuskers, a streak that started in 1975 and is now 0-73.

    Most likely because it is volleyball.. and nobody has cared about ISU volleyball until the past couple years when they became pretty good. It's a band wagon sport.

    This was the second time since 1995 that we have gone more than 3 games with them.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    I'm starting to get into it since I watched the Men's NCAA with Penn St winning and also the recent Olympic matches. I like the spike action and the passing. I'm planning on attending the CU vs ISU match in mid-Oct.
