Ha!

I'm looking forward to actually getting to watch the Horns play tomorrow night.  I invited friends over, should help me stay awake instead of falling asleep on the couch (again). :)

I don't know about that, there was that loss to Rice, after all. :'(

Huskers took down Texas St. and Baylor in the Tourney

Horns probably didn't want rematches with those two

No doubt.  I heard that DeLo$$ Dodd$ himself came back from the AD graveyard and intentionally forced the committee to place us elsewhere in the bracket.

My daughter was with us for the week. She demanded we watch the match last night.
Turns out she cusses a lot more now. Wonder where she learned that?
Was glad Texas swept. I have a bedtime, and it was past it.

Ha!  We're gettin' old.

My daughter plays and loves to watch soccer, but she's not much of a volleyball fan.

Friends and my brother came over, we had three TVs going for the Longhorn baseball game, volleyball game, and MLS game.  If felt like a good, old-school sports weekend.  It's nice to have things getting back to normal.

Regarding the NC volleyball match, man Kentucky was so clean on passing in sets 2-4, and Stumler just put on an absolute clinic.  She was pretty much unstoppable.  The Horns came out strong in the first set and played pretty well overall, but the Wildcats were just better all the way around for the majority of the match.  If there were any Kentucky fans around, I'd offer sincere congratulations on their first ever NC.

Horns won the season-opener at LSU 3-1 over the weekend.  It was switched from a regular game to an exhibition, but it's still a solid win over a team that's in the others receiving votes category.

Upcoming OOC games include #20 San Diego on Friday, then #7 Minnesota, #21 Stanford, Arizona, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, and our nemesis-- the #23 ranked Rice Owls! :57:

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Heh, well, it did sorta.  Due to COVID the season extended into the Spring last year, but normally it's a Fall sport.

Horns beat #10-ranked Minnesota 3-1 up in Minneapolis.  All sets tightly contested, and that's a great win in a faraway, hostile environment.

Now, on to #20 Stanford in Austin on Sunday.
