    Volleyball

    I'm watching the ISU-NEB match on the internet, can anyone tell me why we have a player with a white uniform on when the rest of the team is wearing red?

    Re: Volleyball

    I believe that is the "libero" or something like that...

    Re: Volleyball

    The player with a different color Jersey is a setter or something like that. I think they don't have to rotate like all the other players have to do or something like that. I don't really know, but I thought I'd give you a somewhat educated or a completely uneducated guess.

    All I know is they are usually the ones setting the ball for the rest of the team, and they are usually much shorter.

    Re: Volleyball

    The libero is a back row player only. They can sub in for anybody in the back row at anytime.

    Re: Volleyball

    I can't get the broadcast - are we competitive?

    Re: Volleyball

    From the scoring, I'd say we competed well. I'd like to have a report from someone who was there.

    Re: Volleyball

    Nebraska is one hell of a program. The coach for ISU has done an absolutely tremendous job to get the girls where they are today. We always mention the dogdays of football. Well, there were dogdays of VB also. We were manhandled by Neb in VB in the past, in similar respects to football. Never happy with losing, but I was quite satisfied in the way the ladies played. Program is moving up.

    Go out and enjoy a match - there is more than WBB.

    I've watched this team for nearly every home match the entire year, and this was probably the best I've seen them play. The Clones came back from a huge defecit in the third match to make it a dead heat nearly to the wire, and the Clones went down fighting hard in the fourth match. They could have come out on top in either one. In the end, it just got down to Nebraska simply being (as of now) the best Volleyball team in the country. They've got a couple great players (I'm 6'0", and their #9 probably had 3-4 inches on me, she scored somewhere over 20 kills)

    Great match, great effort. Team's getting better, that's all you can ask for

    Re: Volleyball

    Nebraska was too much for our Lady Cyclone's tonight. They played the #1 team in the nation very tough and even won one game, which isn't too bad. They played Nebraska tough all match long.

    After being tied 1-1, and Nebraska leading throughout the 3rd game at one point by 23-18, ISU stormed back to take a one point lead at 27-26, only to stumble and lose the last four points to end that game. That was the turning point in the match, IMO. Had we won that game, it would have been 2-1 ISU, with us only needing 1 out of the last 2 games to take the match. The final score of 3-1 doesn't do our team justice as to how well they actually played.

    Nice job ladies!
