After dominating opponents for 37 years in the NU Coliseum, the Husker volleyball team will have some new digs this year in the revamped Devaney Center. Speaking of new, the squad also will have 10 newcomers, including impact transfers Kelsey Robinson and Mary Pollmiller. However, their additions weren't enough to boost the Huskers into the upper echelon of the conference - at least in the minds of the coaches who picked Nebraska 4th in today's Big Ten preseason poll. Also of note, neither Morgan Broekhuis or Meghan Haggerty who received All-America recognition last season were named to the preseason all Big Ten team. Here's a look at how the coaches believe things will stack up. Defending champ Penn State picked to finish on top yet again. Michigan, who advanced to the NCAA semifinals last season, picked third. And there you see Big Red in fourth. Huskers will have the annual Red/White scrimmage on the 24th before kicking off the season against Lousiana Monroe on the 30th.
