Minnesota vs Creighton Volleyball In Photos

Creighton played the Gophers tough, but it just wasn’t enough in the end.

What is this?

Not one, but two articles about Creighton volleyball? Are we a Creighton site now? Are we Jayskers?

Let’s not get crazy.

Perhaps it’s a celebration that the state of Nebraska produces high-level athletes in a collegiate sport, more than enough to fill one team. And perhaps, sometimes, I can have a soft spot in my heart for them high-falootin’ people in Omaha. Or maybe I just wanted to shove out some photos. Take your pick.

Walking into Maturi Pavilion I mentioned to a couple Gopher fans that they were in for a tougher match than they expected. They poo-poo’ed me. Maybe they thought the Bluejays would be a pushover. They most assuredly were not. You could feel the nerves of the Gopher faithful as Creighton nearly won that match and ended Minnesota’s season.

Did you see this?

Confirmed.

We’re a volleyball state!
