UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – We are kicking off a new feature on  Each week, we will sit down with a member of the Penn State women’s volleyball coaching staff to get a weekly update on the Nittany Lions.

 We are kicking things off today with a conversation with head coach Russ Rose.  We stopped by his office on Tuesday to get his thoughts on the Nittany Lions as they prepare for home matches against Minnesota and Iowa. Ninth-ranked Penn State heads into the weekend with a 13-4 overall mark and a 3-3 record in the Big Ten.

Here is this week’s conversation with Coach Rose. We are right around the mid-way point of the season.  How would you evaluate how the team has played thus far when you look at the overall picture?

Coach Rose: “The upside is that we beat the No. 1 team in the country (Florida).  We lost to the other No. 1 team (Stanford) when we were the No. 1 team in country.  As of late, we are kind of struggling.  We are still trying to find a lineup and get a competitive identity that doesn’t seem to as present on the road as it needs to be in a conference like the Big Ten.”
