    They should drop after two poor performances at home.

    Wow, 15 of the top 25 come from either the Big 10 or the Pac 12.

    San Diego moved into the top 10, which is not unexpected after their easy dispatch of us and Illinois.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    apparently that's from USC who has to play them shortly. Trying to help his own RPI, no doubt ;)

    I'm not sure that it isn't undeserved, to be honest. You beat Hawaii at home and take Texas to five....roll through two mid-ranked teams, I think they should be higher than 9th.

    Our ranking is deserved, we have major improvements to make. Nebby lost to Auburn and Villanova took one set from them, so I think they're ranked higher than they should be......if we work hard this week, beating them is a real possibility.

    Re: AVCA Volleyball Top 25 (9/9) - ISU drops to #17

    Watched the match on MC yesterday - was really disappointed in the number of unforced errors (net serves, long serves, missed sets, OB kill shots). The talent is young, but that was probably the sloppiest I've seen them play in the last 2 years.

    Not to be a Debbie downer but I think that is still to high of a ranking right now.

    Here is the link to CJL's weekly press conference today: Christy Johnson-Lynch Archived Media Conference 9-9 - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    Worth listening to if you have a few minutes. Well-thought-out perspective on the weekend and moving forward.

    Notably, she said that Illinois had worse passing stats than ISU, but Illinois did better in other areas to compensate, and that is what she wants to focus on as well. ISU may (will) have bad nights passing the ball, and the team needs to figure out how to deal with it, and overcome it with other strengths and strategies. She's very optimistic.

    (Just listened to a song from the Safe Haven soundtrack, We Both Know, Colbie Caillat. Interesting how the words go with the team's situation.)

    Re: AVCA Volleyball Top 25 (9/9) - ISU drops to #17

    Likely a credit to the program that our loses elevated our opponents rather than a big drop for us. Dayton and St. Mary's present winnable matches so we might have some confidence going into the match with NU. I don't know if we can turn the mental corner that quickly. I can't go to NU match - might try for one of the others to see ISU and the new NU facility.
