    vs Kansas 10/24 6:30pm

    No. 22 Cyclones Get Rematch With No. 17 Kansas - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    This is a huge match - we lost in 5 at Kansas last month.

    Wednesday matches seem to always have lower attendance, so if you're in town...show up and get rowdy!

    It is huge. Win and we're within one game of 2nd. Lose and its three games behind. KU has shown they are for real, so this is now a chance for a seedings boost as well. I think CJL and the team will be ready for them this time.

    I am watching and see that we have one player in a different jersey and so does KU. Are those the captains or does that signify something else?

    That's the libero (for us, Kristen Hahn). Essentially a defensive specialist. I'm not familiar with everything involved there. This link might help: THE LIBERO VOLLEYBALL PLAYER


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Those are the libero. They are defensive specialists and aren't allowed to do all the same attacks as the other players.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    I am having a hard time following tonight with the wide angle camera. It seems to be too close and as a result missing hits because they don't move the camera as fast as the action. It has been a long day so maybe it is just me.

    It's not you, the camera is anticipating the kill and it gets blocked.

    Re: vs Kansas 10/24 6:30pm

    I'm no expert on volleyball, but here is how the libero is typically used:

    1. They are usually the team's best back-row player
    2. They sub in for two players on the opposite sides of the 6-player rotation. They play through three rotations (playing all three back row rotation spots), come out briefly, then come back in for the other player they are replacing (who is now just entering the back row)
    3. They can only serve for one of the two players they replace. The other player they replace must serve for herself (while the libero is out of the game), and the libero comes in for her after that player is done serving.
    4. Back row players can never attack, block, or set in front of the back row line. Since the libero is always a back row player, they are always under this restriction.

    I hate set 3. Haven't even seen this 3rd set, but I don't like it.

    It would be great to win this third set, and start the second half of the conference season with some momentum. Don't let them hang around.

    Why does this team almost always seem to come out so flat in set 3s? Seems like the other team makes good adjustments, and ISU doesn't.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    We adjust into naptime. I don't get it at all.
