    On his way to the championship game Coach Jon Cook defeated his former assistant coaches in tournament games against Illinois and Kentucky. Additionally, former player and coach Dani Busboom Kelly qualified for the tournament bowing out to Illinois in the second round.

    Current staff members Kayla Banwarth and Jaylen Reyes are regarded as rising stars in the profession, meaning there will be no shortage of successful coaches with Nebraska ties to choose from when Cook eventually retires.

    One difference. He isn’t an obnoxious donkey.

    He's more the Osborne of NU volleyball ... in that Cook was an assistant under Terry Pettit ... who took over and built upon a national power -- much like Devaney and Osborne.

    True, though that's not to say Saban built up 'bama from nothing. His success was made easier by the long prior history there aswell.

    I hope Cook takes this comparison to heart and insists on winning at least 3 more NCs before he retires.
