When Jerritt Elliott took over a floundering Texas volleyball program in 2001, the Longhorns were far enough below Nebraska’s success that the coach needed a telescope to view the Huskers’ perch at the top of the Big 12.
Texas was 10-18 the year before Elliot arrived, while Nebraska had just finished an undefeated season, winning the national championship in John Cook’s first year as head coach.
