All I can say is----I am SO proud of the Husker volleyball team this season and how they played together as a team and left it all out on the court every night. When you consider what they lost from last years team, it is very obvious how good of a coach John Cook is as both a tactician, and as a leader. Talent wise, I don't think there is any doubt that Penn State was the superior team last night but our ladies continued to fight even when down 2-0 in sets. Unlike the Washington match, we had NO momentum at all going into set 3 and things looked very bleak. Instead of going through the motions, the Huskers came out aggressive and, as the announcers stated, punched the Nittany Lions in the mouth. Its true that we made some mistakes at the very end but what really impressed me is that we were causing Penn State to make mistakes as well. They were a machine all season and we forced tension in them that they haven't felt all year. We are really going to miss Larson, Schwartz, and Gates but we have a lot of talent coming back and one of the best coaches in the game. I think the future is very bright for Husker volleyball.
