    For those looking for a little bit of good news, the volleyball team beat scUM tonight to improve their record to 18-0. Senior Stacy Gordon lead the Bucks and became the new Big Ten career leader in kills.

    Hopefully they will begin to get recognized in the polls as they were ranked only #8 last week, below #2 Minnesota whom we beat 2 weeks ago. If this were football people would be going berserk over the polls.

    And at No. 5 is Penn State (16-1, 7-1). That's two Big Ten teams with losses that were ranked head of undefeated Ohio State.

    You beat me to it ND. I have been to a few of the women's matches and I was tempted to run on the court and stuff a dollar in somebody's garter. These girls are hot.

    I met the volley ball team at the zoo this year on OSU day. Drop dead gorgeous girls. And all sweet as can be. They talked to my girls and I promised to take the oldest to a match this fall. I haven't made it yet. But I still intend to.

    The Buckeyes traveled into the heart of Pennsylvania last night and defeated the #5 ranked Nittany Lions. We have now defeated 2 of the 6 teams ranked above us in the last poll and we are still undefeated. Next up is #24 Illinois on Saturday.

    I remember covering the volleyball team for the Lantern my senior year. Stacey Gordon was a freshman then, but she was already one of the top two players in the Big Ten, and I believe National Freshman of the Year.

    She told me she almost went to Penn State.... Good news for the Bucks she didn't and bad news for the Nits.

    By the way, the shorts thing is the first thing I thought of when I got to cover the team. Yeah, it looks good and they're gorgeous and all, but, you should see them play. The precision and athleticism is amazing - especially Gordon. I can only imagine how good she is now.

    I agree - there is nothing like seeing three sets of shorts going up for a block at the same time.

    Actually, they do put on one heck of an athletic exhibition. Wearing Burkas they would be worth watching.

    Ok, Ok, we need to start two threads about OSU volleyball. One for the success they are having - and one for the photos. But keep in mind, we wouldn't even be looking at the photos or talking about them if this team wasn't undefeated. So give it up for their skill as well.

    This team is simply dominating the Big Ten. Hopefully this week, they'll finally get the respect they deserve by jumping into the top 5. Stacey Gordon is probably going to win her 500th or so Big Ten Player of the Week award as well.

    You're wrong. I'd be a perv win lose or draw. I am happy to see the team is having a major breakout year. And you are right, Stacey is an incredible player. I haven't seen her in action yet, but I do read.

    I'm just a dirty old man that really digs these girls for something other than their God given talent.
