Football ain't the only sport on campus right now . . .

Folks, I said it once and I'll say it here too . . . everyone knows what's going on with the gridders and everyone knows who's being recruited for the cagers, but Tech's latest potential #1 team, right behind the Tech 9, is the women's volleyball team. I know, you guys think that it's a meaningless sport that deserves attention right up there with softball and swimming, but this team is the real deal.

Going into the past weekend with our highest ever ranking of #10, we proceeded to go to a tournament at the University of Nebraska and dismantled three other Top 25 teams to realize a new highest-ever ranking up to #5. This included a win over the host Cornhuskers, who previously were the #5 team.

Now, I'm not getting up on a soapbox here or anything, but you guys may want to cut these chicks some slack and see where and how close we actually come to Tech's first-ever national title.
