    ***Official NCAA tournament thread***

    I got my four tickets first thing this morning for the NCAA tournament 1st and 2nd rounds. At only $14 apiece for all-session, this is an amazing deal! If people reading this have never gone to see volleyball here, but have had an interest, go buy some tickets before Thursday night.

    So happy to see we are seeded 15th and are able to host games again this year. I also got my wish for the team being placed in the Berkeley region. It will be VERY interesting to watch the first round match-up between California and North Carolina. This is the third straight season these teams have met in the NCAAs. Cal will be playing to stay alive to make it back to their home court for the Sweet 16, and will not be an easy draw, regardless of their 15-15 record. UNC won't be a pushover either, so I honestly don't know who will win or which team to root for in that first game.

    Hopefully the team can keep the winning streak going and make short work of a decent IPFW team. They won their league, so obviously they know how to play. ISU cannot afford to come out soft. They have proven that they can literally beat anyone (kNU, UT) and lose to anyone (Syracuse).

    Just have to make sure that ISU is the team that advances and NOT Cal (or UNC), since Cal is going to Berkeley after this sub-regional, regardless. They just need to make sure the Bears go home as the losing program.

    Re: ***Official NCAA tournament thread***

    there is a lot of arrogance on Volleytalk about Stanford/UCLA over ISU. They don't even see us getting past Cal. I think that's foolish on their part as we are an incredible hot and dangerous team right now. I don't that we've ever really (recently) played some of those elite PAC-12 teams. I'm really hoping we just spank them.

    The more arrogance, the better. Someone should go on that board and act submissive. That would be funny.

    Arrogance coming from Stanford and UCLA? Wow - who would have guessed THAT! I'm not surprised because a lot of those schools can't even acknowledge volleyball exists beyond the golden beaches of California (never mind the programs at Penn State, Texas, Nebraska, Minnesota, etc.). Hopefully we will get the chance to prove them wrong by taking down Cal (assuming they win against UNC, which they might not), then showing Stanford, and their insufferably entitled fans, how it's done. As a Cal fan (but not this week!), I had long ago come to really hate Stanford and their arrogance. They're not as bad as hok fans, but they're pretty bad.

    haha, yes! Someone (ISU fan, I believe) said something about not underestimating us, and it got ignored. They should ask Nebby and Texas about not being prepared for us and how that goes. I don't know if we have the guns to take down UCLA or Stanford, but I know that we are probably the top team that I would not want to play right now.

    Stanford people may be arrogant since some pay $54k a year in tuition.

    oh yeah, the PAC-12 is the gold standard over there. They still mention Syracuse when they talk about ISU. That was months ago kids. If you're thinking that's the ISU team you'll be playing, you're going to be in for a rough time. These girls are completely different and playing exponentially better than the team that lost to Syracuse/Kstate/KSU/took Iowa to 5.

    I read just one poster (a Cal fan) who picked the Bears over ISU - didn't notice any others.
    On the contrary, I think ISU gets a lot of respect on Volleytalk - we've been called a "class program with a class coach," among other things...

    Why assume that Nebby and Texas were unprepared for us? Why not assume that they were prepared and it just didn't matter?

    Like Iowa, I doubt all Stanford's arrogant fans have a degree from there, nor could many ever hope to afford one.

    Re: ***Official NCAA tournament thread***

    If Cal, Stanford, and UCLA fans are looking at the schedule and only seeing losses to Syracuse and Illinois, then they are doing themselves a huge disservice. But, let them believe what they want and come in unprepared. Hopefully the team is serving up *****-kickings and lollipops, but runs out of lollipops VERY early on.
