    No surprise: 3-0 versus on overmatched Barton team. Did give Olmstead an opportunity to get a lot of subs some playing time. They set Storm a lot, and played Storm and Lincoln together at OHs. At the...

    This was my most recent audio book listen. I didn't like it near as much as you guys. It was ok (enjoyable overall), but ... I don't know ... it's basically the Neuschwanstein Castle of books. Also,...

    Seem's right; he had a nice weekend:

    I would add: (1) I was encouraged by what he showed on his serve. In the first two games we only saw heat/fastball and despite the...

    Another note; byu went big and without a setter a couple of times (and not at the last point of the set). It actually worked pretty well. Clearly, the coaching staff saw something. Nice little...

    My summary: BYU passed well with a few important lapses in set 1 and then set 4. The lapses cost the boys, but they were consistent enough to take the match and mostly kept Nick Szerszen in check (he...

    Watching the replay now (it costs to watch it). My initial impression is that OSU is just not as good as the last couple of years. Sure, still top 5 (I think they still win the MIVA). That said, we...

    Six, with 4 auto-bids for the conferences champions. MPSF typically got 2-3 bids. The one autobid and then either one or both of the non-autos. Last year MPSF got BYU, Long Beach St, and Hawaii. I...

    Two new big west teams added volleyball for the 18 season. The big west teams in aggregate basically had enough teams by themselves to be a conference. So they decided to break off because there...

    BYU beat #13 ranked Ball State 3-1. Thought it was decent performance by BYU. Garcia Fernandez and Sander looked good, and so did the middles (particularly Miki). Storm struggled at the pins; lots of...

    Pretty good match tonight against a good Lewis team. Hitting percentage was about 125-150 points higher. I think some of what we saw last night is that Loyola's kind of a bad match up for BYU...

    Yeah, he's a beast. Don't think the setter timing/placement with him is quite there but, yeah.

    Yeah, it's a musical. I would say its heritage is singin' in the rain (no, it's not as good). It's telling a period story but for the most part doesn't try to worry about historical accuracy or the...

    I'm not the one to ask about that; Probably Killer-dog or Surfah can answer that question better than me. I do think one important aspect of the issue is lack of an elite libero.

    Well, BYU was super tall last year. It would hard for that not to be true. Langlois was 6-10 at one of the OH spots and Dobbert/Patch were both like 6-9. The question of whether BYU is really that...

    Alright, it's time for the men's season where at least the team still has pipe royalty (I'm assuming Tayler Sander is still considered the king of the pipe). Definitely some questions marks at the...
