    Congrats again to the volleyball team. Great weekend in Oregon to get back to .500 in the Pac, and it looks like they're playing at a higher level the last 5 sets.

    Way to go Buffs.

    I've noticed that Kriska's teams seem to gel about this time of the season. Last year, they did not do well in the pre-conference matches. Lost some matches they probably should have won this year also. Now they are ready for Pac 12 play. I know they had to figure out the chemistry with Taylor Simpson gone. Hopefully, they have found it.

    In volleyball news in the top 25, Nebraska knocked off Penn State, then got beat last night. Illinois, who beat us, lost two matches this week. That isn't good for our RPI.
