    We blowout #22 Kansas at their house in 3-0 sets today. Wednesday 10/24 #4 Texas comes to Hilton. What to expect?

    Anyone watch the game at KU? What is the story as we go on a 3 game win streak?

    First games of season we looked impressive, then we slid into mediocrity. We can salvage the season with a strong rest-of-season showing with many matches at Hilton and lesser competition. Holthaus is impressive!

    And Wednesday night at Hilton vs Texas is on ESPNU. Good timing.

    Looks like KSU is rolling now as well. Knocked off two-ranked teams in Baylor and KU this past week to wrap up the first half.

    As the OP you can do it yourself. As the OP you should see something called Threads tools above the op on the right side. Click on that and you have a couple of options and one is edit thread title.

    Maybe CJL has settled in on a lineup, and they are getting comfortable with their roles. Who would've thunk moving the Libero of the year to DS would make us better?

    Give credit where it it due, blocking and hitting is impressive!

    The Enna move to Libero, adding Baranski to the rotation as a DS, and Herrera's emergence as Rhoads' replacement have all been keys to this run. Probably wasn't easy for CJL to kind of demote Hillegas to her new role and one would think CJL will not do any additional tinkering at this point.

    No doubt this was the best and most important win of the season so far.

    Just took a look a the Big 12 standings - we're tied for THIRD at the mid-way point of the season. I would never have guessed that, considering the skid we had recently.

    Texas (of course) is on top at 7-1 with their only loss being to Kansas. Kansas is 6-2, now having lost back-to-back games to K-State and Iowa State. Then there's the log jam for third place at 4-4: Texas Tech, Baylor, TCU, Oklahoma, and Iowa State. K-State is 2-6, while WVU brings up the rear at 1-7.

    Couple of weeks ago I said we had no shot at NCAA. Looks like we might now if we could finish 6-2 and be 10-6. Kind of a tall order but doesn't look as impossible as it did before.

    We have to beat Texas in order to get into NCAA IMO- I don't see a way in unless that happens. Maybe if we lose a close one in 5 but I doubt it. Looks the best it has all year right now.

    At Hilton and just counted that we have 10 dressed players tonight. Ten. And yet we started out really great, matching Texas point for point. Lost first set 25-19.

    And kinda downhill from that point. :( They did seem to play with more emotion than previous matches I've watched this season.

    Question, why does Texas have five or six few matches than many other teams in the Top 25?

    Grace was a beast! Love her fierceness! Hillegas is quick and we need to find a way to get her on the floor more.
