Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
Michigan Volleyball Challenge
Alex Hunt, from mgoblue.com
For those of you who might have missed the volleyball team's recent climb to #6 in the nation, you're missing out. Michigan has already defeated one major perennial power in Nebraska (think basketball's victory over Duke last year). They opened up the home slate last weekend, emerging unbeaten in 4 games, not even dropping a set.
This week ups the ante. Michigan hosts unbeaten 9-2 Marquette (Friday 1p), unbeaten #27 Dayton (Friday 7:30pm), and 7-2 Oregon State (Saturday 3:30pm). The Oregon State game is going to be huge. The athletic department has moved the game to Crisler Arena to accommodate the big crowds they are expecting.
Coach Rosen (pictured to the right by mgoblue.com) joined me in an interview to preview the Michigan team. Over the course of the interview, we covered everything from Brazilian food, to Michigan's strategy, beating Penn State, and reasons you should come out (including girls in spandex). Take a listen and more importantly, after the football team destroys Eastern Michigan, head next door and see the volleyball team take on Oregon State.
For those interested in breaking records, Nebraska had 13,780 fans show up to it's game against UCLA last week. Crisler Arena's official capacity is 13,751. I think we can pack in a few extras and shock the volleyball world again this season.
