Before introducing John Cook as the team’s head coach, Albert declared, “Nebraska has the best fan base in the world, the best volleyball fans in the world.”
Cook told the group they ended up being the best fans in the country with their appearance.
“And I was thinking this morning, there’s only three things that shut down the University of Nebraska: 1) snowstorms, 2) Covid, 3) Nebraska volleyball in the stadium. So students, you’re welcome. … From one of our players, she said tonight, ‘The impossible is possible.’ So thank you very much. There’s no place like Nebraska,” Cook said as the crowd cheered.
