cused on the task at hand.
“We encouraged them to study
because they could not go out of the
hotel,” Walker said.
NU fell behind 1-0 in the first
half, marking the only time the
Huskers have surrendered a goal
this season. But Nebraska’s trend of
breaking games open after the in

Freshman Lindsay Eddleman
scored NU’s first goal to even the
contest. Kari Uppinghouse put the
Huskers ahead to stay 10 minutes
later, and Kim Ratliffs goal put the
game out of reach.
The victory marked Nebraska’s
first-ever win against a ranked op
ponent. Walker said it was great to
defeat the Blue Devils.
“It’s a big measuring stick for
us,” he said. “But I’m not interested
in what other people think of us. I’m
only interested in the players believ
ing in themselves.”

you’re in trouble.”
However, Saban said the roost dis
appointing thing Saturday wasn’t the
score. It was Michigan State’s lack of
preparation for the Huskers.
■ ' Saban said he was disappointed
with the way the Spartans prepared in
practice for the game. Michigan State
opened its season with a 52-14 win
over Purdue a week earlier.
‘Tf you have highly motivated play
ers and a highly motivated team, you
get consistency in performance,”
Saban said. “I don’t think we got that.”
One reason the Spartans didn’t have
any consistency was they played 14
“We have to be able to get these
players to take what they did last week
and then be able to re-focus,” Saban
said. “We have a lot of young players
who went to the prom in May, then beat
Purdue last week and said, 'Hey, this

What the Spartans do have is
sophomore Julie Palvus. The inex

huge responsibility of leading MSU

5-foot-8 Palvus has had problems
consistently connecting with her
“We have a young setter who has
never set at this level,” Erbe said.
“The hitter selection is not always
correct. The matchups we’re creat
ing are not good.”
Elbe, the AVCA 1995 coach of
the year, is quick to acknowledge
that his team’s problems go beyond
adjusting to a new setter.
Saturday’s match was a comedy
of errors for the Spartans. At times,
MSU was confused and unorga
nized, Erbe said. The Spartans, who
had problems passing the ball, ex
perienced several breakdowns in
their serve-receive and defensive
“We’re just not passing the ball
well,” Erbe said. “That’s been our
Achilles’ heel this whole season.
When we pass, we can run our sys

MSU’s front line had a difficult
time at the net. The team hit only
.125 with 29 errors. The Spartans
also hurt themselves with 13 service
errors, including four by All-Big
Ten outside hitter Jenna Wrobel.
Nebraska Coach Terry Pettit
thinks MSU will rebound from this
“When you change one person
on a team, the chemistry is differ
ent,” Pettit said. “They are not in
trouble. If I had to bet, I would say
that MSU is still the strongest con
tender for the Big Ten title. I’m not
concerned that they won’t have a
MSU has a week off before re
turning to action in the Cleveland
State Invite, in which the team will
play two unranked teams, Niagra
and West Virginia.
“When you perform below ex
pectations, that tends to frustrate a
team,” Erbe said. “ They know
they’re not playing consistent at a
high level. I’mjust glad this is hap
