Cook Talks About Volleyball Boom at Big Ten Media Days

Nebraska coach John Cook attended the second annual Big Ten Volleyball Media Days in Chicago on Tuesday. 

Cook talked about how the sport of volleyball is booming across the country at all levels. “You just see the (television) ratings keep going and the talent level gets better and better, there’s so many great teams are across the country now,” Cook said.  “I see it at the younger ages, at the club tournaments.”    

The Huskers start preseason practice next Tuesday, with the Red-White Scrimmage set for Saturday, August 19th. 

It was announced yesterday that Nebraska will have 20 of its 29 regular-season matches aired by TV networks.  The Huskers will play on BTN 14 times, on Nebraska Public Media five times and on ESPNU once.
