    Zamboni in Hawaii!? Looks like it’s used for buffing the floor. Who would have thought.

    I watched part of the Iowa St – Kansas St match and thought, how in the world did K-State beat the Wahine so badly? And not once, but twice. Also watched the Penn St – Purdue match and thought the Boilermakers would pull an upset. Nope, they found ways to give the match away. Purdue’s Sherridan Atkinson looked like an All-American.

    Watched part of the Baylor – TCU match. Baylor has a 6-6 Red-shirt Frosh OPP from The Netherlands, Marieke van der Mark, a lefty. So where’s our 6-6 OPP from Europe? Maybe next season?

    Taller ain’t always better. If the girl is 6-6 but lack coordination or footwork, then she is nothing more than a statue. Very rarely do hitters hit over the blocks. They either find holes/angles and hit that way or they tool the block.

    BTW…our men’s team have a 6-9 lefty and he is not even the team’s best hitter.

    I rather Robyn find smart, fast, quick, athletic players with average size(6-0 to 6-2j than to find a lumbering 6-6 girl. Those kind can do more things to help the team win. Those kind can chase down errand balls, go low and dig spikes and just move around the court and do more.

    6-0, 6-2 is fine. 5-9, 5-10 is tough. Gotta be a Kanani type to succeed at that height. Not all 6-6″ are lumbering.

  8. Kahuna October 11, 2018 1:07 pm

    #7 true but the non-lumbering 6-6 girls usually end up at P5 schools. Extremely difficult to get those to come here. P5 schools have so much to offer from better facilities to high COA to highest level of play to having a better chance to compete for a national title.

    Dave Shoji have indicated that harship of landing blue chippers in the past. Now it’s even harder due to what other schools can offer.

    Like to see MH slide-attack towards Granato’s side and then often fake the slide to support Granato’s power hitting. Look how van Winden got fake support. Relying on basic attack would not do against top four who may have improved .too.

    #8 Agree with you 100%. Think overseas we have a better shot. Watching Big 10 network or Pac 12 network they got some talent.

    Re: story about Beach in the paper: Sheri Sanders was the setter for the 1989 championship team…Hernandez was a freshman reserve…
