    Slightly off topic, but I see where tickets for Notre Dame game here on September 3 this fall will average $275.00 per ticket with a limit of three tickets.

    Probably the only good call John Mackovic made as the Texas Coach. He never fit, he was a wine and cheese guy in the midst of Beer and BBQ!

    AJ, off topic. I was in San Diego last week for my #3 grandson's graduation from Marine Boot Camp. Awesome experience. He now is a PFC in the Marine Corps. His family is proud of him.

    Little known fact is that the Naval Academy Band are not Midshipmen. They are enlisted members of the Navy, try out and if they make it are stationed in Annapolis

    • Are Naval Academy Band members Midshipmen?
      • The professional musicians of the United States Naval Academy Band are active duty, enlisted Navy Sailors, not Midshipmen. They have auditioned specifically for the Naval Academy Band through a competitive, national audition, and assigned to permanent duty in Annapolis.

    Quite a Army / Navy game today. It turned on a fake punt that apparently was a mistake, the guy who took the snap didn't know it was coming to him.


    Rugged defense on both sides, both teams had some big plays that were key to their score and really not very much of the style of offense you are used to seeing from the Academies.

    Navy 17 - 13.

    He did.very well, especially considering he didn't have the receiving corps that Hurts, Tagavolua, and Jones had.

    From what I read the Texas fans consider Nebraska an elite Volleyball program. Apparently Gregory Gym was rocking for this match. Congrats to the Huskers!

    Back line for Texas is struggling. Nebraska putting on a clinic in terms of defensive digs and passing. Our front line is world class, but if we don’t stop it the line our libero and back line is just average.

    Great season. Unfortunately we fall victim to our Achilles heal again. Lexi Rodriguez is a freshman, but took the Cornhusker team on her shoulders defensively. I’d trade serving prowess for better defensive mobility. That all said - an impressive season / great coaching. Gregory gym was rocking and our student section didn’t let the team down.

    #8, #14, and #22 for nebraska carried tonight for them and they are all freshman. Nebraska going to be good

    Year after year defense (passing) is our problem when it gets down to the nut cutting. Elliot has never placed enough emphasis on getting top notch defensive specialists and liberos. O'Brien was a rare exception last year and she fell into their lap as a grad transfer. Nebraska beat us tonight because of their defense and that's the main reason we have only won one NC in Elliot's time here.
