Another 5-set win against WVU tonight... Carlson didn't play again- hopefully it's not a major issue..

Will find out what we're made of vs. Texas next Friday-Saturday.

That was nearly an all time pants shitting. I hope Suzie learned a lesson with not using that challenge up 6 in the third set. That being said, I don't know how the linesman and R1 missed that call, the ball was completely in.

It would have been nice to see the 5th set, damn Appalachia.

Just saw on the ESPN bottom line that we are #13. Seems good?
:adios:

They are only ranking the teams that are playing. We're much better but not that good. This performance against UT is a much better gauge of how good we are because they are a legit top 5 team. The women look great, I'm thrilled.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Well, it was fun while it lasted. The focus wasn't as sharp the fourth set, therefore the passing was horrendous. Suzie made a terrible mistake by sitting Carter to start the 5th, she tried to steal some points and we got buried before she could get on the floor.

Sue Eying a 16 run? E8 down the line?

I’m impressed by the talent. I’d heard the ‘cruitin’ had a real uptick, but wow. I honestly wasn’t sure Sue had another run in her. Happy for her to be getting much deserved facilities and money support as well.

She's had three straight recruiting classes, although most from the first class are gone. It's probably going to be a while before Suzie sees that new arena, they don't have the money yet.

They should leave Carter in the back row. One of our DS is not good.

Have you seen something to indicate she can dig and pass?

Well it’s not ideal to recruit 3 rotation OH’s.

I haven’t seen her play much defense but I know she can hit from back there which would give them another option.

I like Carter but it’s very early.  Teams are seeing her for the 1st time.  Film will identify how to defend her & she’ll have to adjust.  I love that her offspeed stuff is already very good.  That’s pretty rare for a frosh.

Can she though? Her height makes me very leery about her ability to hit from the back row. Even if she can, this level of volleyball has players who can absolutely expose anyone who is a defensive liability. You can't be defending with 5 players and expect to win.

Serve receive can be a brutal initiation.  They’ll find you.

Receiving with 5 and trying to hide the bad passer in the back corner of zone 5 doesn't work past club ball.
