Came back on Saturday night to have "one of those matches". 

Nothing would go where it was supposed to. Service errors. Just constantly bricking the setup pass. Blocks full of gaps. Just all around out of sync.

Not something you can do against a quality group like Nebraska. They didn't miss, and deserved to advance.

Services errors, bad serve receive, bad defense all the way around.  Just wasn't our night and really, it wasn't our weekend, but our hitters were just a little too much for Washington.  Not so with Nebraska.

There's pretty much a pattern here, and I'm not sure "always a bridesmaid" is good enough.  Especially after seeing the same problems year after year despite the differences in personnel.  Could be time to make a move from our current coaching staff.

Horns dispatched Fairleigh Dickinson in Austin tonight with efficient effort.  13 service aces was a season high.

Next up tomorrow night will be CD's Georgia Bulldogs, who took out Towson.

On to the Final 4.  Will this be the year Texas is the bride and not the bridesmaid?

So I guess the coaches get to hang around for another year?
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Yes, they are allowed to be on annual contracts.  If they don't win the NC again next year, they're fired.
