    Whoa!
    We've been intending season tickets this year. This sure doesn't hurt that thought at all. Very exciting!!


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

    Wow.

    Not to be a pessimist, but entirely possible/likely to start the season off with two losses at home

    Or really start off on a great note - but either way the competition will serve them well later in the year.

    Hoping we are "worse" hosts for volleyball than we were for basketball! We gave that game to FSU and never got to face Stanford.

    Re: ISU to host Stanford, FSU in AVCA Showcase

    It's an interesting format. Nebraska hosts the same teams on opposite days.

    Friday night is Stanford at ISU, and FSU at Neb.

    Sunday is FSU at ISU, and Stanford at Neb.

    While Stanford will be extremely tough as the opening match of the season, it might be just enough to get us going for a win against FSU. After all, FSU will face a tough one at Neb to open.

    In any case, it should be a lot of fun to watch.

    Re: ISU to host Stanford, FSU in AVCA Showcase

    This is huge! Even with a 'down' year last year, there is plenty to be excited about for next season. Plenty of young hitters. I'm worried about setting and libero but I think we'll be pleasantly surprised. CJL keeps this train a rollin'.

    I hope we go 2-0 obviously but I'd be pleased with a weekend split with the returner those 2 teams have coming back.

    I agree, and I think opening the season with a team like Stanford escalates the summer training intensity - whether it be conditioning or scrimmaging. It sure would with me..

    I dont care if we lose. Just getting teams like thus in Hilton elevates this program. Fennelly, are u paying attention?

    Technically, we did have these teams in Hilton for WBB. :-)

    Assuming Lee's Summit West (MO) HS Lori Hanaway doesn't have a game, I would expect her to be there to watch her two former MBs go against each other. Tori Hurtt won four state championships under her tutelage at O'Hara HS, then she went over and coached Stanford's Megan Megehee to a runner-up finish the next year at West.
