    Default Women's Volleyball 2016

    Nice start. Lady Cougs are 6-0 and just beat Ohio State in five sets (on the road). BYU was ranked 10th and Ohio State was ranked 11th coming into the match. No TV, but freshman McKenna Miller had 31 kills (0.342 hitting percentage).

    A small measure of revenge.

    That freshman girl is amazing. What a great surprise.

    Yeah, I went to the UVU match but other members of the family went to the other two home matches. Still, even in the first match she looked good.

    Somebody needs to check in on Wally tonight. I am worried about his mental state.

    I had Board Meeting last night. When it finished, and i checked the outcome, I was devastated.

    Also, when YOhio calls me names on here, especially when I am obviously down about the loss, i try to imagine him typing out insults in-between eating his boogers, and it makes me feel better. I feel pretty confident that I am not too far from the mark on this one.

    There are two threads about the UTAH spikers besting the BYU blockers? This board has really gone to pot.

    Hey! The post in that other thread was from a Ute fan. Don't you come in here and piss on our threads and then mock us for it!

    We have connections (know players) on both the Utah and BYU volleyball teams so we attended last night. Great atmosphere and a fun time. BYU played like crap for 2.5 sets. Had a 13-11 lead in the 5th set and Utah scored 4 pts in a row. It was a crazy night, with lots of scoring runs on either side.

    I watched the 4th and 5th set (thanks BYUTV). Amazing atmosphere and tons of energy.

    Played much better tonight against a decent UNLV team. UNLV came in with a computer model ranking of about 45, but I think they are bit overrated by the computer models. They came in undefeated against a weak schedule which is hard to rate well.

    To me the biggest problem for the team is at opposite. Haddock is athletic and but undersized. It really hurts us that Cozy Burnett is injured. She gives us my better size at the opposite. Also, we are weak offensively when the setter is in the front row. We don't have anyone that can stay in and hit from the back row (act as an opposite hitter out of the back row).

    Made a little road trip this week to watch the lady Cougs play against St. Marys. My two girls just finished their own volleyball seasons, so we wanted to give them a chance to see BYU play in person. Plus, some good friends of ours just moved to Moraga a couple of months ago, so this was a good excuse to see them. So we grabbed a couple of Steelblue's daughters to keep mine company and made the 3 1/2 hour trip to hang out for the weekend.

    After a rough start to the first set, they poured it on and ran over them the rest of the way. McKenna Miller played really well from the left OH position. Amy Boswell played fairly well in the middle. Their libero, Mary Lake, was awesome. She was playing with a pretty clunky knee brace, but still seemed to be everywhere on defense. She had 18 total digs in the 3 sets. The setter, Lyndie Haddock, was visibly flustered in the first set after making several unforced errors, but pulled herself together and ended up playing a nice match.

    The St. Marys coach is LDS and is a really nice guy. Their best OH is also LDS and is a primary teacher in the local family ward.

    St Marys is a really nice campus. Gymnasium is small, with only about 15-20 rows up on either side. I can imagine that place is crazy loud when their hoops team is playing there.

    Good play by Boswell in the first set.

    BYU needs more continuity and better communication to shut down the Tiger attack.

    If BYU continues to block this well, game, set and match.

    Maybe, if Wally is actually about three feet tall and a strawberry blonde.

    Well isn't Wally amazing at going incognito. Well done, Wally.

    BYU defeated UNLV 3-0 earlier this year, but it looks as if the Rebels have turned it around and have better blocking than Princeton, so it should be different tomorrow.

    Wally, your favorite volleyball team defeated the Running Rebels tonight 3-0, which previously dispatched the Utes 3-1. You must be happy all around.
