No. 9 Florida's 18-year reign as SEC champion is in jeopardy
Looks like we need to be pulling for Baylor and OU in the coming weeks against the Horns.

Gotta like that
yeah were pretty much amazing. so how will the tie breaker work if we finish with same record and split the series?
Unfortunately - we have tough tests left against NU and at A&M. And I don't really see Texas losing again. Hoping - but I will be SHOCKED.
That win was enormous for us. But at the same time, I think we may have done UT a huge favor.
In more ways than one. Haley Eckerman, who is already, as a Waterloo East junior, the best prep volleyball player in Iowa history, had reportedly narrowed her college choices to Texas and Nebraska.

Maybe ISU is back in the picture...
Does she have longer hair now?
Looks like a girl I saw talking to CJL after - I think the CU match - a few weeks back.
I saw in the paper the Knuth girl from Johnston announced her commitment to ISU. With Taylor already there, I supposed that was never much in question.
Sounds like we got two seniors signing next week. One from Cedar Falls or Waterloo (can't remember which) and the other from Dike New Hartford.
Back to Haley - I'll admit I'm HUGELY biased - but after knowing a bit of what I know about Cooke at NU, and seeing the antics that the UT coach put on last night (and hearing what I heard) - I don't know how you can't look at those two, then look at CJL and see the easy choice. Particularly when the success levels in the recent years isn't all that different. I'm sure Christy can have her moments. I'm sure she's tough as nails at times. But she is NOT those two....
I hope this young lady stongly considers such things - even if it's not ISU in the end.
Raises the ante for the NU match just a bit more, doesn't it?
Pretty much lock up #2 in the conference, at worst. IMO - shore up a #2 seed in NCAAs and host first two rounds.
And perhaps pull a bit ahead in that recruting war with NU
You see, the biggest coaching news this past off-season was assistant Salima Rockwell leaving Penn State for Texas. She is a great assistant coach, and if you watched closely last night, did most of the real "coaching" for Texas, especially during timeouts.
She has taken Ashley Engle, a first-team all-Amercia outside hitter and made her basically a setter this season. And Engle is excited about it.
