    I'm always surprised when athletes leave UF, but perhaps its understandable. Each of their playing time seemed to diminish by the year (although I've never even heard of Haley Warner).

    Obviously wish them well (and I will miss seeing what color Riley Fischer's hair is this week). Any comments?

    Riley's hair has been silver every year, just different shades. :D She looks good in any shade.

    My fav was the purple.

    I understand transfers in football, baseball, or men's basketball, where playing time might lead to a professional career (although obviously probably not). But for other sports, I'm always shocked that an athlete would trade a UF degree for a degree from a lesser school, just to get playing time. Volleyball is a head count sport -- I guess maybe there are financial considerations, although in the long run, a UF degree and student loans is going to be better than a Ole Miss degree and no student loans. (no offense to any Rebels)
