    Congrats to the team and coaches!

    I went quickly through the volleyball Information Guide, and if I'm not missing something (ALWAYS a good possibility), this is the highest volleyball has been ranked nationally since 1998, when that team started the year ranked #12 and ended the year #17.

    A couple other notable things in the article:

    1) "The NCAA Selection Show is set for Nov. 30 at 6:30 p.m. MT. It will be televised live on ESPNU." and

    2) "CU will host Oregon State on Wednesday, Nov. 26, at 3 p.m. in the Coors Events Center. Admission to the match is free."

    This Wednesday's game is Senior Day. (Hope some fans will be able to make it out.) For the seniors, the volleyball twitter account is starting to briefly tweet about the seniors who will be playing their last regular season home match. The 1st one to be acknowledged is Kelsey English-

    They had Rachel Hargis on Facebook last night, but I couldn't find one for Taylor.

    I think tomorrow's match is online so I will get to watch.

    I don't see it yet. (Location for volleyball twitter media is https://twitter.com/CUBuffsVB/media , and I still don't see it. Facebook looks like the main location for them anyway, so hopefully all interested folk got to see it there.)

    Oh for God's sake. She got one last year for basketball, how many does she need?


    I'm kidding, I'm kidding. She's a great Buff.
