Nebraska volleyball sells out Red-White scrimmage: 'There's no place like Nebraska'
The Nebraska volleyball team may not have their 1st game until Friday, but that won’t stop the fans from selling out the annual Red-White scrimmage.
Per Amie Just of the Lincoln Journal Star, the game’s attendance was 7,946. The No. 1 ranked Cornhuskers sure do know how to fill out an arena. Coach John Cook was blown away by the number of people who showed up to watch the team play.
“It’s hard to put into words because you never think you’re going to pack a Red-White game,” coach John Cook said. “I walked in today and I was just blown away.”
Cook wasn’t sure if the difference was because of how COVID-19 effected attendance, but the numbers usually have been a bit lower in the past. However, the Nebraska coach welcomes the support from the fanbase.
“The difference today — I don’t know if it had to do with COVID, but the last couple Red-Whites we’ve had, it’s like been Love Library. Super quiet,” Cook said. “And today? People were fired up. They were into it. That’s why there’s no place like Nebraska.”
