    Re: VB - National Finals

    It will be interesting to see how PSU responds. The girls in this program don't know what it's like to be behind like this.

    Now 23-18 Texas in Set 2

    Looking more and more that Iowa State is going to be the only team to have beaten the National Champion this year.

    They mentioned that the All-American Dinner was last night; we'll see if they talk about it during the break.

    If Texas takes this match, it'll draw even more attention to the bad draw.

    Re: VB - National Finals

    Texas is like night and day compared to last year - much better passing, and frankly much grittier. Stealing Penn State's setting coach, Salima Rockwell, to Austin after last season has changed that team.
    As the announcers pointed out, Salima acts like the head coach already, doing almost all the talking in the Texas huddle during timeouts.

    Could ESPN want Penn St. to win any more?

    Re: VB - National Finals

    Random thoughts:


    • Is volleyball the only sport where you can score more points than an opponent and still lose? It's like if baseball went away with total runs and decided games by who won more innings. Odd.


    • Anyone else find it odd that there are more high fives exchanged between team members of the team that lost the point?


    • Destinee Hooker is ridiculous.


    • I normally am not a huge fan of women's sports, especially basketball, but this is entertaining. It's beating out Christmas Vacation on my TV set, and that's saying a lot.

    The only other one coming to mind for me is tennis. There are some really nice volleys going.

    That last kill by Hooker was nasty.
