and you're wondering wtf I'm always prattling about, then
you're in luck - 3 top 11 matchups on national networks
tonight and tomorrow
BTW, this sort of slate is not uncommon - next week, for
example, Stanford plays both Minnesota and #6 Penn State
before traveling to Lincoln on the 18th to face the #2 Huskers
in a rematch of last year's MNC game.
Couple more Big Games this week
#1 Nebraska hosts #2 Stanford Wednesday night on BTN - all
sorts of plot twists and background to this game - they met for
some crap about them on their whiteboard. The Devaney Center
will be sold out and extremely vocal - should be a helluva
match - esp since Stanford's coming off a loss to Minnesota and
is pissed off right now.
Yeah, I have some mild concern the Cornhuskers may get outmatched.
They are awfulkly young, and have shown that so far. If they can
stay focused and playto their ability, they should give Stanford a
run for their money. Having Nebraska be the ones to bump Stanford
out of the number one ranking won't help UNL either.
You're right about the Bob, though--it'll be rocking. Nebraska
fans are *very* supportive; for example, over 250 consecutive sold
out matches. At some point they will pass the sellout streak
number at Memorial Stadium (assuming it continues), just because
they play more times per year.

Thursday on FS1 you can watch Wisconsin host Washington in a
top ten matchup. Two very good teams, both highly capable of
reaching the Final Four - both working on a few things during
the OOC portion of the sked And yes, I'll be there - Badger
endline during odd number centers, center court, up a row or
One great thing about VB, is the huge number of top games
preseason - Stanford, for example, will play 6 teams ranked in
the top 10 - before conference play even starts. Every week
brings match ups like this week's above games as well as #4
Penn State doing a home and home with #6 Pitt. Great stuff.
Wednesday night is volleyball night on BTN - the SECN and PacN
also show games with great regularity. Enjoy!
These are great overviews of what's availble--much appreciated!
