Video: Men’s volleyball national media poll ballot breakdown

The team with the nation’s longest winning streak is back in the top 10 of the national media poll.

  1. I completely disagree ranking Penn State at No. 4. The argument that it “doesn’t matter what teams they’re playing” is pretty flawed. The teams that they are beating are not near the caliber of teams in the MPSF. I would agree that they deserve the No. 10 spot, but I would put LBSU, USC and Pepperdine ahead of Penn State any day.
