    Cyclones stay at 16th in AVCA poll

    It's critical that we stay in the top 16 in order to have a decent road to the NCAA regionals. Easy match at TTech this Wednesday, then the BIG ONE against Texas at Hilton on Saturday, 6:30 pm. Hope we get a big crowd.

    UNI, the team we destroyed, way above us?

    Well, they've had a great year since then, and we've had some bad losses. It will be interesting to see where the NCAA VB committee seeds UNI come tourney time, and where they send them.
    I'm still recovering from what that committee did to us last year.

    I'll be there Saturday.

    Just need to get a ticket for the MBB and decide where to eat in between.

    Who of any substance has UNI played since we beat them? Other than that KU debacle, we have lost to legit teams. OU and MU are not ranked, but they would more than hold their own in the Valley.

    Well, UNI did beat KU at Lawrence. They also swept Wichita State, who is #18 in the NCAA RPI index. ISU is #19 in that same ranking. UNI is way up there at #6.
    OU and Mizzou may "hold their own" in the MV, but they aren't at UNI's level. The Panthers went undefeated, and weren't even pushed hard.
    UNI is by far our biggest win this year.

    UNI also has non-conf wins @Minnesota and @Notre Dame.

    With only 2 losses, to ISU and Dayton.

    What do you want to bet all the Big XII teams meet again in the quarterfinals or before? What a joke.

    UNI has to be sick of being in the bracket with NU. Isn't it the last 2 years they've had to?

    Here is one NCAA seeding projection, from the Stanford VB site. Although no one knows for sure, they have both UNI and ISU as #4 seeds.
    Again, our home match Saturday against Texas is HUGE to stay in that top 16.

    Prediction for Penn State/University Park Region: #1 seed Stanford, #2 seed Penn State, #3 seed UCLA, #4 seed Iowa State

    Prediction for Dayton Region: #1 seed Nebraska, #2 seed USC, #3 seed Illinois, #4 seed Arizona

    Again, this is a prediction .. Austin Region: #1 seed Florida, #2 seed Texas, #3 seed Minnesota, #4 seed N. Iowa

    Seattle Region: #1 seed - California, #2 seed - Hawaii, #3 seed - Washington, #4 seed - LSU.
