    Christy's post-game presser

    Certainly did not sound like a coach even considering leaving. Sounded like she loves what she is building. She talked about she really thinks they are building something that will be a Final Four team, and be a regular competitor for that.

    After giving accolades to how hard the team worked and came together this year, and impressive tributes to each senior, she was asked about what she had coming back. It was interesting to note that much of it focused on the girls named Tori(y). Hurtt we could all expect after her tournament performance, but special mention was made of Tory Knuth who redshirted this year, probably because we were loaded in the middle with Straube, Matlock, and Stadick. Could we see Matlock slide over to the right side with Knuth taking over her middle spot? I think Bigbee could be a player for the RS as well. Maybe she will be a redshirt candidate as Christy seems to be using that tool strategically to build things for the future

    Now it's up to Jamie and the new Prez to not take CJL for granted. Women's VB is a sport that is growing in popularity in high schools and it is one that we have a strong upper hand on that college in I.C. Really think we need to come up with a volleyball facility somehow. No more Hilton flood nightmares for one thing. These ladies have earned a home of their own on campus.

    Re: Christy's post-game presser

    Definitely have a lot of line-up options for next year: I could see it like this in this order

    Right side- Bigbee, Malloy, or Matlock
    Second Middle(cuz first is Jamie's)- Matlock, Tory Knuth, and maybe Hannah Johnson
    Outsides- Hurtt, Hockaday, Willms, and Kuhrt
    Defensive Specialist- Nolan, or Goetz
    Setter(if we run a 6-2)- Landweahr, Malloy, or Gallagher
    And our libero will be Hahn since she's awesome and a vocal leader

    Many options, but a good problem to have

    Matlock was moved to the middle because of shoulder issues. I don't see her moving back to an outside unless emergency situation with other injuries.

    Re: Christy's post-game presser

    There is no way on god's green earth we are building a VB facility anytime in the next 5yrs. Maybe, MAYBE 10yrs down the road.

    A dedicated Wrestling facility would come first, then VB and neither is happening soon.

    With the new FB facility moving the team out of the Jake and the Olsen building being remodeled to house wrestling along with VB having Hilton is about as good as it will get for the time being.

    The Armory would be a perfect venue for VB - but it would take millions to renovate/retrofit for VB. CJL has mentioned it before. But when would we get the money?
    When CJL talks about going on the road to play, whether during the season or in the tournament, she refers to the Nebraska's, Texas', Minn's, etc. as having "great places to play." Those programs all have the smaller, more intimidating arenas. Usually the remodeled old b-ball arenas. Like the Armory. It would be tremendous. And, IMO, the only way to really lock CJL in.

    Armory is an interesting idea. Wonder how much to make it what it would need to be?

    There definitely are options. With Landwehr back, I just don't see us going to a 6-2 at least not next year. She really came into her own this year, and can be a force on blocks at the net. Don't teams tend to go to a 6-2 when the setter is undersized? If Gallagher is as good as expected, that could be the case there, or just the fact that we have two good setters in her and can maybe take advantage of Malloy's other abilities better in a 6-2.

    The Armory is already filled with design students, the parking division, ROTC, and the ISU police. Finding a new place for all of them wouldn't be easy. Plus it's a pretty old building.

    Not as old as State Gym, or Morrill Hall, and both of those have been totally redone. I assume the Armory is pretty structurally sound.
    I don't know about relocating the current occupants. Maybe it cant be done. Just saying that to build a brand new VB/wrestling arena, to hold 5,000 fans, would seem to be out of the question.

    I'd guess a single facility for WR/VB/GYM is much more likely than a dedicated facility for any single one.

    Another issue with the Armory is parking.

    And location in general. It'd be on the opposite corner of campus from all the other athletic facilities.

    If we do, it might be one of those blowup buildings.

    Does the armory hold 10,000 people?

    You have tons of parking - tons - across Pammel, north of Molecular Biology and Metals Development. Trust me, we would have a MUCH better situation than the VB venues at Neb, Tx, Wisc - and they pack them in...
