Nebraska defeats Stanford to win the NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball Championship 2006

As a graduate of the University of Nebraska (B.A. 1968) and Stanford Law School (J.D. 1971) the LawPundit was very much aware of a sports competition which took place several days ago between the Nebraska and Stanford women's volleyball teams in playing for the NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball Championship at Qwest Center in Omaha.

Except for a few sports like football, where the Huskers traditionally have the edge, I thought it was not very often that Nebraska and Stanford competed at the same level in most college sports.

After all, Stanford won the Director's Cup for the best overall collegiate athletics program in NCAA Division I for the 12 straight year this past June.

However, to my surprise, when I checked the final college ratings for the past year, I found that Nebraska ranked in the top 20 of all NCAA Division I collegiate sports programs (19th).

It was then less of a surprise to see the Husker ladies defeat the Cardinal 27-30, 30-26, 30-28, 30-27 in a match which found Stanford playing in its 12th championship match in the 26 years that the tournament has been held. We congratulate the Huskers for coming out on top on this one.
