    Re: Home opener

    I think I'll be heading over. Are the walk-up tickets general admission?

    Yeah, only season tickets are reserved seating.

    6:30pm, shoot, I'm going to have to hurry tonight! Very excited for this game!

    Reading all that about Bigbee makes me wonder how she didn't get Big 12 Rookie of the week?

    Great match tonight! Impressed with UNI.I was stunned when they asked if one of us was a student for free admission. They were stunned that it was me, not revkah.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Great match, glad I went! Good showing from Cyclone and UNI fans. Clone Cone guy was on his game as well.

    Re: Home opener

    Bigbee didn't play as large a role in the win as I'd have thought. Wierd player rotations and set patterns. We have too many good girls. Still the block is missing, some. Just me, but I would have liked to have swept them. Something to let them think about on the drive back.

    Re: Home opener

    I agree the blocking needs to be improved; just before the final minutes of the last set, we only had four blocks, if the scoreboard was correct, while UNI had nine. We picked up two more blocks in the furious finish. However, our roster contains sixteen players, half of whom are freshmen (I am counting Tory Knuth as she is a redshirt frosh). Only six of those other eight are either seniors or juniors. Conclusion: we need to be patient.
