next up is the alabama roadie: @ usa on fri, troy on sat - both 10-11, 4-4


looks like we got a nice rpi bump from the carolina schools - up to 28

little bummed we aren't getting any love in the polls, but maybe we have to run the conf to see a single vote....

agree. can see us not being in the top 25 (strictly objectively, because i really think it's bullshit we aren't), but to not even get any votes? come on now!



for those of you who said you live nearby but wouldn't ever go to a vb match, you really should. vb is by far the best women's sport to watch - super fast paced and w/ the rally scoring every point is actually worth 2. besides, these girls are GOOD. this team has an embarrassment of offensive options, and they have been playing more focused (less unforced errors) the last couple of weeks. as one of the few shining lights in our otherwise bleak sports existence, you owe it to yourself to get over to strahan and enjoy cheering for a bobcat winner this weekend (last home matches of the season).

louisiana schools up next, at home:

friday @ 6:30 - ulala is 12-12, 4-6...we won 3-1 at their house earlier this season
sunday @ noon - ulm is 9-14, 2-8...we swept them in monroe

Ranked 22nd in volleyballmag.com's mid-major poll. First time all season ranked in this poll.

Not receiving any votes in the coaches poll and only ranked 22nd in mid-major poll. Not much love at all in the polls.

not sure who votes in the volleyballmag.com poll, but it reads like an online fan poll. just compare our rpi and sos to every team above us - we should realistically be like #6 or 7 among mid-majors.

If you actually look at the poll you’ll notice right underneath it tells you exactly who the voters are. It’s a coaches poll, so it’s just as legit as the AVCA poll. You can love the women all you want, but it’s virtually impossible for a Sun Belt school to receive any votes in the AVCA poll because the league as a whole isn’t very strong. Just look at combined RPI’s. It’s not great.

you don't really think our team is the 22nd best mid-major team, do you? or that all the other mid-major conferences are orders of magnitude better than the sunbelt? aac, mvc and wcc sure, but only 9 mid-majors w/ a tougher schedule than we've played. i definitely don't think we're getting our due - it's tough to go undefeated in ANY conference and we're 5 away from pulling it off. multiple teams above us w/ 7 and 9 losses when we've got 5? i have a hard time stomaching that.

looking back, i'll say it again - coming out of that baylor tourney w/ a win would have done wonders for us. i'm going to be bent if we get stuck going to austin again.

came damn close to proving this tonight!

19-25, 22-25, 25-19, 25-20, 15-7

started wood at libero 1st set, but switched back to dinwiddie in the 2nd. not sure if they were trying some different things on defense, but the back row looked all kinds of confused and unorganized in 1st and 2nd sets. total opposite to close the match out, w/ huge, clean digs.

our depth is such an asset. leading killer (by all of 1 going into tonight, but still) not feeling it tonight? no problem - huskey, fitz and swg go out and put down 14-14-13, scott and daigle w/ another 8 each. dewalt and huskey both had great nights at the line too.

21-5, 12-0
16 straight

ladies not messing around today. 11-0 scoring run to go up 15-5 in the first....take s1 25-10.

down 17-21 in 2nd, cats fight back w/ 8-2 run to close it out and take the set 25-23. :shock:

another quick start to the 3rd set: cats up 14-2 on the way to a dominating 25-14 win.

guess the team got the scare they needed on friday night!

22-5, 13-0
17 straight
