The group of 27 departed from campus at 4:15 a.m. and everyone was bright-eyed and ready to go! The flight from Atlanta to Omaha was set to leave at 8:36 a.m. ET and we all made it to the gate without a single snafu.
The arrival to Omaha was a highly-anticipated one as the temperature was 17 degrees. Everyone bundled up in their coats, hats, gloves and scarves and were excited (well, not really) for the change in weather compared to Auburn.
We drove from the Omaha airport to Lincoln (about 45-50 minutes) and had lunch at Schlotzsky's Deli once we got to town. The team is now at the hotel and resting. Practice starts at 2:45.
Everyone is really excited to be here (despite some grogginess from the early morning) and ready to play!
Check back at AuburnTigers.com for more entries, pictures and video. War Eagle!

Following practice, the team braved the cold and walked across the street to Misty's Steakhouse. All the stomachs were filled with steaks, salmon, bread and/or soup. The atmosphere was great and the service was superb. An excellent choice made by Director of Operations April Yantis!
The team is resting now - probably watching some college hoops. Breakfast is at 9 tomorrow morning and then it is off to serve and pass. Everyone is anxious for tomorrow to come and ready to make their NCAA debut.

The highlight of the entire match was watching 5-6 Sarah Wroblicky play in the front row at the end of the third set. We ran out of subs so she had no choice! The best part was that she was credited with a block assist! Way to go Sarah! (and Camila Jersonsky for getting that block).
We're watching the Nebraska/Sacred Heart match right now. The atmosphere here at NU Coliseum is unreal. The Husker fans truly love the sport and understand it. They clap for great plays even if it is against their own team. It's a great place to watch volleyball!
