    Not expecting a good result in this one. Girls haven't had the light come on yet. Maybe tonight is the night though.

    Should be a 3-0 sweep for us - I doubt there is a single player on the Hawkeye squad that CJL would offer a scholarship to. Iowa is a down program, and the Big 10 is the wrong VB conference to be in if you're down. Sharon Dingman's last year there, IMO.

    I assume you've been reading the volleytalk thread about her? I'm split. Obviously, what CJL did with our program is amazing - I just don't know if it can be done at Iowa. UNI was the only other in-state competition, Nebby and Texas were the only perennial powers in our conference at the time...........I think Iowa has a lot bigger hill to climb. Because now there's two nationally-ranked (usually) programs in-state (plus all the regular competition for top Iowa recruits that go out of state) and their conference is just stacked. They might fire her, but I can't see that they would care enough to dump in the resources needed to make the turnaround for their program.

    Hope so. But we are still finding our feet and it is and in-state thingy at their place. Free tickets available?
    3-1 is my guess.

    That backrow spike from Bigbee was a huge shot! If she can get her serve to work well and handle the ball, that's a real weapon we havn't seen.

    Just, just take it easy, Walter! Ha! For the record, I'm very disappointed that Cyclones Tv isnt showing this game!! It's a travesty!

    I don't see why they wouldn't. They want to win, just like us. I believe it's the last year of her contract. Although the Big 10 is very tough, there's no reason they couldn't hire an exceptional coach. If CJL had gone to Iowa from Wisconsin, instead of ISU, no question they'd be good...

    I've found for wrestling and volleyball coverage, getting the CBS Sports All Access package allows you to see most events on the road. Worth it, unless you don't want to see something, like the way we are playing in Set 2.

    No business giving up a set to this Iowa team. None. Focus ladies.

    I guess the score is too much to ask.

    Thank you...that sucks. What I've seen from this team is that they have a long way to go. Not seeing tonight, of course.
