    That is very impressive and well deserved. What a difference a few years and a great coach can make.

    Re: Volleyball team ranked #11 in preseason poll

    I can't even begin to describe how freaking excited I am for volleyball to start this fall. I highly recommend everyone make it to at least a handful of matches this season- you'll realize very quickly how entertaining it is. If you like watching football and basketball, I promise you'll like volleyball just as much, if not more.

    WOOOOOO GO STATE! Final Four, here we come!

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Preseason polls are meaningless...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Congrats to CJ and Joe on the addition to the family as well.

    Excited for volleyball too. I actually have expectations of the volleyball team for the first time in .... well... ever!!

    Getting my season ticket. Only 25 bucks. Don't know if I'll make a single match - but gotta support that program.

    Good on you, mate. Even though I'll get a Cy's Pass for free (buy both FB and MBB student season tickets), I think I'll do the same thing. Buy a season ticket and give it to an area family or somebody.

    Even if you don't use your tickets, try and give them to somebody who will! Money is important, but so are feet in the stands! (We don't necessarily want butts in the seats, though... )

    Regardless - it's not the butts in the seats (in or out of) that you care about.....

    I certainly hope to make at least a couple matches. Promised CJ several times I would, but haven't lived up to that yet. It was an air tight lock I was heading to Omaha last year had they won that last match.

    Anyone who has experienced the UNL Coliseum knows how exciting a volleyball match with a few thousand people can be. And JMO here, but women's volleyball is one of the sports I really think is better than their men's equivalent - at least for spectators. Hope we can pack 3-4K in there a few times minimum

    Re: Volleyball team ranked #11 in preseason poll

    I agree that high level volleyball is fun. We went to the Iowa-Indiana match last year with a bunch of my daughter's team. Only my daughter and I rooted for Indiana but I have to admit that it was very entertaining. Iowa had/has a hot brunet(sp)...good player as well.

    This. It was nuts when we went last year. Granted they do have there little annoying things they do for certain players, but it was crazy. It'd be awesome to one day have a coliseum like that A La the armoury.

    Re: Volleyball team ranked #11 in preseason poll

    Hmmm I miss going to the Volleyball games... had a good freak'n time every time I was there

    Congrats to the ladies on their achievements


    Volleyball was fun because it was so much more intimate of an environment... and you could usually get away with doing things you couldn't at a basketball game

    Though running behind Nebraska's bench and singing the fight song during a time out will get you yelled at


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!
