    Volleyball's Timeline to 1,000
    UF's win Sunday over Arkansas was the 1,000 for the program that debuted in 1984. Here's a look back at the milestone's that preceded it.

    "They really just represent the passing of time, as well as the number of really talented players that have come through this program," Florida's spectacular volleyball coach said. "Would a round number be any more meaningful than, say, a championship match or a coming-out moment from a player?"

    No, and Wise should know. She's experienced a plethora of milestone wins, moments and coming-outs in her 28 seasons on the Gators' sidelines, with the most recent coming Sunday — 11th-ranked Florida's 3-1 defeat of Arkansas — that marked the 1,000th win in UF volleyball history.

    It was the 844th of Wise's tenure with the Gators, which means she's responsible for 84.4 percent of that grand achievement (pun intended).
    But let's give Ann Marie Rogers an assist, as well.
