  1. Sorry guys was trying to clear old post and accidentally resent it. I wanted to give Grace a shout out for coming up big in the OT.
  2. Did not get to see the game. Listened to it on the radio and I have a few take aways. Loved the way Hannah picked up her game on defensive end. Career high five take aways ( nicely played). The way the two sophs. took over the game offensively, awesome cause those are the two we should want taking over. In truth with Nicea out, when they took the lead, I thought we were going to lose. Our mental toughness is at a much higher level this year. Finally, huge win they are going to be atop 50 rpi team and we won in their house.

  4. Had 3 general take aways. 1) switching much better on d 2) Kate Cain is actually moving her feet on d and doing it well I might add. 3) have no idea what the offensive game plan. To many people doing to many different things. No focal point, no bread and butter go to and finally no go to player. Luckily we have full season to iron it out.
  5. I looked everything over and have us number 5 in league behind Maryland, Ohio State, Minnesota and Rutgers. May be wishful thinking, but I think we'll be in the dance.
  6. With minnesota, ohio state and maryland still to come, that put us 9 at best in the league. Sure these pundits are wrong.
  7. redsteve Love your take on the freshman. I have seen tons of tape and read tons of articles on Miss Bourne and Miss Helms. I have seen so little on Miss Brady that she is a complete wild card to me. The way I look at, anything positive she brings is a bonus
  8. This is mine Miss Mershon cause I feel she is the best post defender Miss Bourne cause I've seen enough tape to feel she is the most versital scorer down low Miss Haiby cause she is the best at penetration and scoring off DP Miss Brown athleticism and scoring versatility Miss Eililey cause to much to write I expect Miss Whitish will start in front Miss Haiby at the 1 and Miss Cain will start at the 5 in front of Miss Bourne.
  9. Just curious do we have any names?After all researching a few prospects is always fun.
  10. I will go back the fact that the volleyball team was built from in state talent. Coach Pettit went to high schools all across the state to drum enthusiasm and get local players and coaches invested. Going 0 for 3 in D1 signees leaves a bad taste, particularly since 1 is #71 nationally and another is #56 nationally. We really need to market and sell our program better. We meaning fans, media and coaches. Gauging by the number of D1 signees in volleyball and soccer, I refuse to believe the talent isn't here. If it's not the talent, it's the interest level. 0 for says all I need to know about interest.
  11. Not sure I'm tracking Creighton 94 Duke 79 USC 53 Misery 30 We have a much tougher schedule
  12. It's not just McKenna. We aren't really doing well/ anything to protect our state. Miss Ryan out of KS is the 83rd ranked player in country "high profile miss". Meanwhile we have, Miss Krull, the 87th ranked player and point guard to boot playing at Millard S. and now going to SD. high profile ( no swing?). The 78th ranked player Miss Gony a 6'3" F that lives and plays what walking distance to the PBA still uncommitted. Got to protect your own border before you can conquer other borders. If math serves we have 6 to give. We have 3 D1 worthy players inside of 50 miles and still no verbals. Frustrating
  13. Agreed, especially with passing and defense. Though defense was not just about effort sometimes it was scheme and the importance of assignment understanding. ie (all 5 collapse leaving the best 3 point shooters to there lonesome) another big issue to me was switching on the dribble penetration. I get so frustrated when the dribbler beating there man means an automatic uncontested layup which I saw too often in too many games. Finally on the defensive side of the ball, boxing out which by the way is the biggest issue team wide as I see it. This why I love watching Miss Mershon, she rocks in this catagory. Offensively passing is the word. Explain to me why we have by percentage the best 3 point shooter in the land and we are only getting 4 or 5 looks a game. I do not buy into the cannot create own shot as much as I buy into ball rotation. Good passing is the only way to get good ball rotation.
  14. I do not think anyone is tearing down coach Cook or NU volleyball. He has advanced NU the volleyball program he got from coach Pettit to a top three power house. All the applause in the world for that. The nature of the beast is what the combat is here. Or do you really think UConn basketball would take a hit for their volleyball program. That is what we are talking about here ( The program vs. a program). If any of that was misconstrued, my appologies.
