NCAA has to institute instant replay in volleyball

This season, the NCAA tried out instant replay in the Big Ten, Big 12 and SEC conferences, but the system wasn't in place for arguably the biggest call of the season — you know, the one that has the power to continue a dream run or bring a season to an end.

American Pharaoh’s quest for Triple Crown will end one way — disappointment

American Pharaoh, who entered the Kentucky Derby with 5-2 odds, overcame a drenched track in Maryland to win the Preakness by seven lengths and put it's hat into the ring to try to break the Triple Crown drought that's loomed over the sport. But unfortunately, I only see this latest Triple Crown threat ending one way — disappointment.

Blogging the NCAA Volleyball Final Four

As I did with the Lafayette Regional in softball back in May, I plan on live blogging the Final Four. As always, I'll be posting primarily on Twitter at @ViewFromTheBox and then game updates will also be on The Daily Texan Sports Twitter (@texansports). Within each section for each day, posts will be in ascending order with the latest post first.

Texas vs. Penn State volleyball atmosphere one of the best I’ve ever been in

It's interesting, but volleyball is a very underrated sport. Outside of those who play it, volleyball doesn't get a whole lot of press in the national spotlight. Sure, ESPNU has about a game or two a week, but that's ESPNU. Who honestly goes there if there's something better to watch. The only time you really see it nationally shown is NCAA tournament time, but even then it's just a fleeting moment. But volleyball is actually one of the most interesting sports in the college landscape. It's a lot like arena football in a way. It's relatively small nationally, but it's quick, high energy and intense. Especially intense.
