    Re: Game Time!

    for those not following the blog, Knuth went down in the first set and hasn't returned from the locker room. Possibly ankle but not word on how serious :(


    eta: returned with ankle taped, sitting on bench.

    I am so, so excited to see her play. She is a HUGE get....stealing her from Minny after their coaching switch. I really think she's going to do great things at ISU.

    From the coaches it sounds like Capezio will fill in nicely for Malloy... she's even a better back row player than Andie already.

    It just sucks that they put they put that much training in her...but enter Ciara! 12 kills and 1 error in her first match!

    Also excited for Samara and Maria but It sounds like they will redshirt barring injury (knuth?!)

    Vondrak did a fine job of filling in, I'd say! But of course, it's hard to say how good some of these newer players are until we play some more competitive teams. That's crazy how cleanly Ciara played though..........she was having a lot of trouble getting the ball in/around the block in the scrimmage.........not an issue today!

    Should be another fun game to watch tonight, don't forget you can see live video for free!

    Re: Game Time!

    It will be interesting how the newbies do tomorrow against A&M which will be the first real test.

    Add in that it will be their 3rd match in 24 hours. Last year didn't turn out so well in that first tourney but the competition was much tougher.

    yeah our preseason is much easier this year compared to the past. I wonder if this was on purpose knowing that we'd have a new setter and younger passers? Maybe to help build their confidence before we play the tougher teams?

    Re: Game Time!

    I would guess a little bit of being younger but last year was like death row. This year is set up nice. A few teams to experiment our line-up with and other really tough tests (Illinois, A&M, Nebraska) Even UNI and Dayton should be good tests.

    Some of these are borderline ranked teams that made into the tourney last year compared to the how many ranked teams we played early last year. CJL said she would never shy away from a tough schedule but I think this years is perfect for where our teams at now.

    I guess now we know why Malloy left!

    hadn't we speculated that after the 6-2 went south, that maybe her starting spot as an OH was not a guarantee?

    I would bet that that was part of the reason. Was there a live video feed for this game? If so, what was your over-all impression of the team for those who watched...anybody stand out? Hopefully Knuth's injury isn't serious.

    Re: Game Time!

    No video this morning. Free video for the match tonight though.

    Sounds like Capezio had a really nice match.

    I thought vondrak came in for knuth and played really well too.

    Not the blocking numbers I was looking for but there were a lot of nice touches and got our hands on a lot of the OH hits.
