I would feel much more confident about the Ball State men's volleyball team's showdown with No. 1 Penn State this weekend if it was being played in Munciana. Instead, the Cardinals will be making the trek to Happy Valley. The last time the Cardinals played the No. 1 team in the nation, they lost to ____ in the 2002 Final Four. Prediction here: Nittany Lions in four, but I really, really hope that I'm wrong.

Mitch Rodrigue certainly didn't last long as Ball State's new offensive line, coach, about two weeks. Supposedly, the university asked him to move into either the freshman dorms or the graduate dorms, and he balked. He hadn't found a place to live before quitting. Darrell Funk replaces him.
Along with the Funk mention, two other interesting tidbits: women's basketball assistant coach Marsha Frese (sister of former BSU coach and current Maryland coach Brenda Frese) has applied for the open Toledo job and former area volleyball Kelly Sheffield is now the women's volleyball coach at Dayton.
