How much is an unexpected day off worth?

For Texas State, apparently a lot.

It was even enough for some players to break out in tears — literally.

A video of the team’s reaction to head coach Karen Chisum giving them a surprise day off in the middle of training camp was posted to the Texas State Volleyball Facebook page and in less than a week it became the most viewed and shared video on the page.

Chisum didn’t exactly expect the reaction she received, especially the tears.

Texas State earned its 100th home victory under head coach Kat Conner Sunday afternoon.

The energy level of the morning session inside Bobcat Stadium wasn't up to Withers' standard and combine that with sporadic offensive line play, there wasn't much for him to take away other than that the Bobcats are right where he expects them to be.

What’s the most logical step for a team that went undefeated in conference a year ago? Proving to the rest of the nation that Arkansas State is one of the top Group of Five programs. The defending champions have never been picked as the preseason favorite to win the Sun Belt. That hasn’t stopped the Red Wolves from winning the taking the crown four out of the past five years including a co-championship with UL Lafayette in 2013.
