Wouldn't nude volleyball rule?  Because I think it would.

In theory, yes. 

In practice you might wind up with schools like Cal Berkley rolling out a women's nude volleyball team full of athletes who merely "identify" as female.

Don't look now, but Baylor is ranked #2 at 10-0 with wins over ranked teams Creighton, Marquette, Wisconsin, Hawaii, and Missouri.  

I thought the B12 kicked them out 5 or 7 years ago?  Huh.

Yikes.  That's not the jiggle I was looking for.

Iowa St put up a fight last night. Texas bled on the floor. Won 3-1.

Horns topple previously undefeated and #1-ranked Baylor in a sweep tonight in Austin.  

Who's the cockroach NOW, huh????

Baylor has a great team, but the #1 ranking was kind of a trick of the light. They'd played a couple of top 10 teams this season, and are undefeated. Since no one else really was undefeated, Baylor was sort of #1 by default. They hadn't really faced much adversity.

Having been there and done that before goes a long way in sports. The Baylor girls are new at the top. Playing in someone else's hostile gym with a target on your back is a skill in itself. They just haven't had the experience yet. Last night's loss will do the entire team good when the NCAA time comes around.

All that, and Texas is probably currently the most complete team in volleyball.

Texas back line played maybe the best I've seen in years... or ever.  That was fun to watch.

Serving still could use some work, but service errors were down last night and that's a difference-maker.

Baylor's good, they'd only lost two SETS all year prior to last night.  Beating them in Waco in a few weeks will be a tall order, but if the Horns can continue to play as well as they did last night, then the sky's the limit for them this season.

Horns sweep OU in Norman last night, not a bad way to start the season.  Now, due to coronavirus weirdness, we have to turn around and play them again today.

And I sure do miss all of the fun OOC matchups we usually see in the early season.

Cramming shoulder to shoulder and cutting up in old-arsed Gregory Gym in a sport that Texas is consistently good at! All things that make volleyball great!

Would be weird to see it in an empty, quiet gym.

Horns sweep Kansas last night in Austin, play 'em again tonight.

I didn't get a chance to watch any of yesterday's game but will definitely be watching tonight.

Horns sweep Kansas again to go to 4-0.

I can't tell you how great it is for my school to be a part of a conference that's playing volleyball this fall.  It sure would suck to not have the chance to play.  What a dick move that choice would have been, you know, for any dick-ass conference that made such a pathetic decision. I'm so glad my school's conference is smarter and better than all those loser conferences that aren't playing right now,

OK, Cool.  Hook 'em!

Now all we gotta do is charge $85 per volleyball ticket and play in front of 120,000 people. We're clearly a volleyball school.

Ok, cool. Hook 'em. Sucking sucks!
