    Yes! I thought he was lost, but he has been found.

    What a different looking BYU team. The pin player are huge! Big Ben is absolutely nasty and amazingly deceptive. He has also finally learned to block with his hands instead of his arms. As a Frosh, he was a nice hitter but an average blocker from a technique perspective. Last night he looked amazing as a hitter and very clean as a blocker.

    I'm worried about our setter. My belief is that BYU's Achilles is always at setter. We have had NC type teams with average setting that haven't finished where the talent looked like they should. Ask Taylor. This team could have that problem. Our S was iffy on location and was scared to use our MB consistently enough. Luckily, Langlois (sp), Sander, and Patch can all be effective against a double block and Patch is efficient against a triple.

    Shawn's a great coach with v-ball blood. I expect he gets us a NC in the next 3 years.

    Five of the six starters last night were sophomores. The next few years are going to be fun.

    They mentioned on the broadcast something about 2 BYU players leaving the program recently for unknown reasons. Anyone know what that's about?

    Btw, why can't there be another college sports forum to discuss BYU women's sports and the non-revenue sports?

    I missed that, and the first set, do you recall the names?

    Tyler Heap (last year's setter) left. I don't know anything about it but I'm guessing he might have lost his starting position.

    The coach said that it was a personal decision, not a coaching decision. Can't remember the exact way he worded it, but it was clear it he was not pushed or booted.

    Tyler Heap left the team which is a big loss as he and Sutton split time setting last year. I can't recall the other, but I thought Chandler Gibb was supposed to be challenging for the librero position and I don't see him on the roster anymore either. So I wonder what happened to him.

    I agree that the setting last night left plenty to be desired. Fortunately we have some supremely talented hitters and jumpers. As long as it is high and off the net they can hit around the block. I wonder if we'll see Sutton tonight.

    I am also worried about our librero. He wasn't nearly aggressive enough last night IMO. I'd like to see him take charge of that back row.

    This team though has a chance to be really special. Ben Patch is the difference. Man he is phenomenal. I think he could be the best ever when he's done in Provo.

    Agreed 100%. I've thought he had that potential ever since his Jr year of HS when I saw him play in a college club tourney at the U. I love that he is willing to swing flat even though he's swinging at 12'. It's an international swing and impossible to deal with unless you're blocking at 11'6".


    Heap was out of shape and seemed to have lost his desire to be good last year.

    Gibb was a good young player out of the OC. I played some sand against him last year and was impressed.

    I agree libero lacked aggression but I didn't mid cause his ball skills seemed poor for a libero or ds.

    Yeah, that was bad. Also, the Stanford Bench doing the choreographed celebration thing was mostly lame (Stanford trying to be like Monmouth basketball?)

    Very disappointing choke. First BYU team to lose at home this academic year. And it is the #1-ranked team! Argh...

    He should have joined us. Way more fun than watching the Utes get demolished.

    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    Wow, that new Scott Sterling has more than 1 million views in less than a day. Saw it retweeted by both ESPN and NBC today.

    It has four million views in less than 48 hours. Volleyball doesn't have the same international appeal, but I've seen a ton of foreign tweets about the video.

    I liked this comment:

    Donald Trump: "We need to build a Scott Sterling around Mexico."
    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    I saw the last three points of the fifth set last night. It looked like it was a hard-fought match.

    It was crazy. BYU pulled away in both the 1st and 2nd sets, but after the break, UCSB changed tactics, going for more dinks over the block, and the Y also seemed to lose a little focus with their passing. UCSB went up 5-0 in the 3rd set, but it was pretty even the rest of the match.
