    Wild Volleyball fans

    The conference is looking into OU volleyball fans and officials are sidelined following "hexing" of Nebraska servers in Norman last week. Some people take their VB very seriously. OU and ISU are vying for third in the conference. This is a possible, but, very difficult win this week. Possibly OU will reign in the fans or they won't be quite so excited about the Cyclones.

    I really hope the lower bowl of Hilton is full against Nebby this year.

    Re: Wild Volleyball fans

    I still don't understand what happened in Norman- they had the NU server "surrounded"? Were they on the court, or not? If not, then how the hell is it different from any other conference match? Hell, I yell piercingly insulting (yet tasteful!) things at visiting players while they serve, but I do it from the front row of seating, not from 2 feet away. And what is this "hexing" thing? What scary hand motions could possibly be made that would have a seasoned conference officiator and a collegiate player complaining/scared? Sheesh. This sounds like another round of, "Everybody's acting like a moron".

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    There will be people in the balcony for this one, possibly challenging the state of Iowa record for VB.

    *Nebraska fans who can't normally get in to NU home matches will flock to Ames.
    *Both teams should be in the top 12 and vying for the #2 spot in the Big 12.
    *It's a home football Saturday, so if the word gets out in the tailgate lots, they may be able to draw from the football crowd (who might need to take 2 hours away from the booze by that point, depending on kickoff time).

    Is 5200 unreasonable for this year then?

    There will be no reason for the number to be under 6,000.

    Re: Wild Volleyball fans

    Oh if nebraska is going to complain about heckling and loudness, then they won't appreciate coming to ames this year, as well as texas. My buddies and I have some words to exchange with the players and coaches of each school. Nebraska fans were ****** to us at lincoln.

    Re: Wild Volleyball fans

    I'm all about the hexing, but I think our Cyclone Hexing powers are strong - even from our seats so there is no need to do the traditional hand holding circle around the opposing server.

    I look forward to making it to the meet - unless we have a barn raising that day.

    Re: Wild Volleyball fans

    It is curious that the officials of the game were removed from the Big 12 list. Cook has been around a long time and is well respected. These factors make me believe there was something a little out of the ordinary going on.

    Re: Wild Volleyball fans

    My wife and I watched the OU-Nebraska match last week and the behavior of some of the OU student-athletes and students was certainly over-the-top. The Nebraska servers barely had enough room to move their arms to make the serve. My wife and I both thought it was unsportsmanlike and commented about it while watching the match. Good to see the big 12 look into it.

    Where the heck was the NU coach?? He/she should have been all over the officials.

    Good point. I realize that you can't see everything that's going on when watching an event on television so, maybe he was getting on the officials but they didn't show anything of that nature. The commentators on ESPNU didn't seem bothered by it either. They pointed out that some of the hecklers were OU Women's Basketball players and that was about it.
