But there's a cap, right -- maximum allowable scholarship roster? And rosters sometimes or often exceed that cap, requiring that some players (even those on a team that is maximally funded) receive a partial or zero scholarship?

The Nebraska volleyball team is ranked second in the AVCA Preseason Coaches Poll, which was released on Tuesday.

The Huskers received one of the 64 first-place votes and totaled 1,451 points. Stanford, which received 62 first-place votes, took the No. 1 ranking with 1,598 points. The Cardinal defeated the Huskers in the NCAA Championship match last December in Minneapolis, 3-2. The two teams will meet this regular season on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. This marks the second straight year the Huskers will begin the season at No. 2.

Minnesota (1,414), Texas (1,385) and Wisconsin (1,329) rounded out the top five. Other Big Ten teams in the top 10 included No. 6 Illinois and No. 8 Penn State. The Nittany Lions received the final first-place vote. Nebraska is scheduled to play 12 regular-season matches against teams ranked in the AVCA Preseason Poll. 

The Huskers return five starters from last year's team, including first-team All-America middle blocker Lauren Stivrins.

I'll be surprised if Nebraska is picked to finish 1st in the B1G.  Zero seniors, no more Foecke or Maloney.   Unknown, or at least unproven consistent situations on the pins.

#2 nationally is too high, but I like the respect

Illinois spotted Tenn 2 sets but managed to pull it out in 5 long sets.  The teams play again this time in Champaign on Sunday.

Nebraska got pushed to 4 sets by Creighton.

Horns beat LSU 3-0 in a scrimmage last week, and beat Northern Iowa 3-1 yesterday in the first real match of the season.  Next up:

USC 9/1
Minnesota 9/4
@Stanford 9/8
BYU 9/13 (@Wichita)
Wichita State 9/14 (@Wichita)

And then on to the conference slate.  Gonna be a fun couple of weeks.

Rather than simply having "General Admission" like St Johns, they now assign seats at the ticket box based on some algorithm that determines the "best available" seat. 

So the building itself is fine. But OSU has successfully managed to make it suck.
