Gators volleyball set to open 2012
The Florida Gators volleyball team is about to be underway for their 2012 season. After being ranked 18th in the preseason polls and with freshmen commanding the roster, the Gators are looked at by many as the underdog.
Even in the Southeastern Conference where the Gators have usually dominated, they’re predicted to only finish third this year. After advancing to the NCAA Elite Eight last year for the first time since 2005 despite predictions the Florida volleyball team might not even make it past the first round, it’s clear the Gators are used to controversy over their ability to achieve success.
“It’s all about toughness,” said Florida coach Mary Wise. “It would be real easy to excuse away what we don’t have in the number of returning starters or maybe we don’t have enough experience in this position but at the end of the day, those are just excuses.”
