    Was the Big 10 really all that this year that they were made out to be?

    Texas made Nebby look real bad. I was disappointed as I wanted to watch competing match

    Stanford other than the 3rd set looked so much smarter than MN.

    Big 10 still made up half the Final Four which we would be ballyhooing if it was two Big 12 teams. :)

    Still disappointed about that 2011 FSU match that kept us from the Final Four a few years back. :mad:

    Yeah I'd say the Big 10 was all that - remember Purdue went 8-12 in the league and then pounded us.
    Texas has now gone up to another level, when it has counted in the NCAA's - good for them. They looked very average against ISU. Stanford's blocking is just tremendous - hope it's a great final.

    I was glad to see the B10 teams get beat but the Tapp twins will be missed.

    I have not seen Foecke have 3 service errors ever let alone in one match. Texas played out of their skin and NU looked like they were forcing everything except the Libero Wong-Orantes.

    Watching Stanford come back to beat Wisconsin from down 2 I had the feeling they were going to be in the Championship. Gotta love your sentiment on Malloy biting the dust along with the Red Horde of outer Nebraskagolia.-- Texas may have a shot, but I'm thinking otherwise.

    Not looking good for Texas right now. Stanford up 2 sets to 0

    Stanford had four freshmen in the lineup, including the setter and an MB from Kansas City. Lots of incentive to make it back next year when the finals are in KC
