  1. Is there a link for online for us out-of-staters? I searching everywhere and cannot find it.
  2. Gotcha. Know nothing about them. Thanks.
  3. Right now my One main concern is Maddi. For some reason she is in a funk right now getting serves and cannot keep it in or not pass it right, and they keep serving to her when she is in the back row. I am hoping that she has figured it out or Coach has something planned for it.
  4. I think it's odd they focus on how many followers she has on a trade card. You'd think it'd be career states upto that year.
  5. I am really shocked that they aren't in the Top 10. How Minnesota is ranked as high as they are is mindblowing. 1-3 isn't a top 20 ranking IMO.
  6. They looked great. I still believe that Orr (34 assists in 4 sets) needs more experience under her belt in the college level and believe that Anni (12 assists in 2 sets) should be the starter setter. Orr was doing great in the first couple of sets, but wore out in the third. If we would have kept Orr in for the 4th set, we would have lost that game. I am still stating that Cook has his hands full for the rest of the roster on the other starting 5. Middles are still crushing it. It would be hard to pick from all 3 of them. It still seems that Callie (5 Kills of 17 and 3 blocks) is some times timid on offense and stays by the net instead of trying to set up for a spike. But when she does have it dialed in, she hits with great strength. Kayla (13 kills of 19 and 2 blocks) and Kalynn (1 Kill of 4 and 0 blocks (although it seemed like she had more and only played 1 set)) seems to be perfect every time they are in. Sad to see that Kenzie (1 error of 2 with 5 digs) is seeing little playing time along with Keonilei (7 Digs and 2 Aces). I am hoping Cook can keep them going so they don't transfer next year because we all know they will be picked up in a heartbeat. Keonilei's serving is amazing. Having 2 Aces in the little time she played speaks volumes. Lexi has definitely won the starting position of Libro. 21 digs is pretty good with Orr being the next highest with 10. For the Outside Hitters, Madi ( 13 Kills 7 errors of 36) Sun ( 11 Kills 2 errors of 36 errors) and Krause (12 Kills 7 errors of 32 attempts) I believe are the 3 will be the go to until Lauren gets better. Unfortunately Whitney isn't doing to great (1 error of 2 for -500 (but only played one set)). Definitely needing more time in practice.
  7. After watching the game, I think that Anni is the better setter of the two. While Orr is good, I believe that she needs to work on the timing or height. Seems most of the balls were short for the hitters. Callie has definitely worked this summer and it showed. 10 blocks and a couple of kills where last year her offense was almost non-existent. Krause killed it for her first game in the college level and Meyer showed that she belongs in the line-up. The middles between the three are going to be great competition. Kenzie is still working out great with her digs. Wish we could see more of her, but Lexi also proved why she won the Libro job. Wondering how Cook is going to throw the line-up in the K-State game. Going to be an exciting year for sure.
  8. If Cook is a man of his word about positions are anyone's to fight for, he is going to have a hard decision on who the starters are. Callie looked really good offensive wise. Hope she keeps it up. Both Lauenstien and Batenhorst were fun to watch and stepped up. Only Starter that I think you can guarantee is Hanes (if she is healthy) with Evans as a close 2nd as setter. And for the announcers. I usually am not happy with Big10+ announcers, but they had me laughing during most of the game and made it interesting to watch.
  9. This might answer your question. I don't think this years seniors will be eligible if I read the graph right. https://www.ncsasports.org/coronavirus-sports/ncaa-eligibility-coronavirus
  10. Now the NIL is out, I am wondering if NU will bring back the names on the back of the jerseys and give a percentage to the players. I don't see why they wouldn't, it would be money lost if they didn't.
  11. Do you know where I can order these?
  12. Love her drive and being humble. I am only wondering when Coach Cook is retiring. With Tyler being back and as an Associate, I am thinking that Cook will be retiring in the next couple of years. If so. I am hoping the recruits that we are getting won't turn away. I believe it won't with Tyler's background and experience (especially after this year in the Olympics), but one has to wonder.
  13. Sad, one of the biggest games to watch and we are "blocked". Looks like YouTube.tv looks that much brighter to subscribe to.
  14. IMO this is a big loss in the upcoming years. She was increasing her level each game. Sad to see her retire.
  15. Am I reading it right where we won't be able to see the Stanford game unless we have the Pac-12 Network?
  16. Does anyone have a good poster of the VB season games? Would like to put it next to my football poster to collect wins/losses.
  17. I believe you can't give Densberger enough praise. To stick with Nebraska and the only playing time is subbing for Stivrens on serving. My salute to her and the rest of the Seniors.
  18. Callie definitely needs work on Offense as she has needed her whole Husker Career. It seems that she is either afraid of hitting the ball or afraid that she is talking the hit away from someone else. The only aggressive side of Callie is her blocking that which her confidence is sky high in that aspect. As you mentioned, NW dismantled, what seemed, a dysfunctional Rutgers but NW looked to be well communicated and in sync with each other. I believe Huskers are going to have their hands full next weekend. Especially if they don't fix those errors.
  19. Undertow, at first I was hesitant of buying B1G+, but after seeing I could buy just the volleyball, I think it was well worth it. Watching the rest of the B1G without having to go thru the commercials is a plus. Do miss the fans being in the stands and hoping its only this season. I do believe that the rest of the teams should at least follow Indiana's concept and allow 2 family members of each player so there is some type of cheering going on.
  20. Although I wish Megan never left and after watching the Northwestern game from Friday night, I believe she made the right choice for leaving and going to Northwestern. She got what she wanted and is now the Libero.
  21. All the best for her. Megan was one of my favorites to watch. Sad to see her go.
  22. I don't care if it's the same three teams over and over again. I just want to know what day they are starting. .
  23. If Hooters is family friendly, your's should be good to go. Good luck in your success.
  24. Was hoping this page would get more active now that the season started. I'll chalk today up to the poor win from the football team. Anyway, the ladies are looking real good. What I am coming out of it now that game 2 is over: The two Freshman (Knuckles and Kubik) are playing as if this is their 2nd year. Really impressed. I was scared to see two freshman take over our two best Seniors that left the program. I believe we won't have to worry about that. Kelly Hunter is now a grad assistant and they had her up in the booth. She mentioned that having shoes hard to fill when being new is actually good and challenges the freshman. Kubik does need to correct her stance when in the back row while being served, but I am sure she will adjust. Davis, Sun and Sweet looks like they really worked and improved during the off season. Coach Cook mentioned that Davis needs to fix some consistencies, but you really couldn't see them in this game. She was full out. Sweet didn't have the hic-ups that I saw last year. Hames is looking good to. Her feet are set and setting the ball very well to the ladies. I do think her and Schwarzenback need to work with each other a bit more. Seems that Hames wasn't getting the ball high enough on most of the sets to Schwarzenback. The only thing I can see the front row needs to work on from tonight's game is blocking. Most were either missed or the bounced to out of bounds. Was worse tonight than game 1. Would like to hear what your thoughts are.
