    Is there a reason why the game is starting at 8:00? Tournament package tickets say 7:00…..just wondering why the change, as 8:00 seems kind of late considering there’s only match tonight.

    Dan-O: nobody is getting up for church tomorrow. EASTER SUNDAY

    1. sore subject with me (very tight deadline)
    even though baseballl was at 1, they thought it better for traffic flow not to have fans trying to get in while others were trying to leave. IMHO, it would have been better to move baseball to noon and keep VB at 7. . Decision was made Monday. Don’t get me started ‘-)

    LOL….ok Cindy, won’t get you started, but doesn’t surprise me, as common sense doesn’t seemed to be used in these situations.

    I believe the key to tonight’s match will be the serve-receive game. Whoever passes best, will be able to run their offense at will…..leading to a victory.

    Thanks for the bracketology link. So UH is a lock for the NCAA’s.

    2. regardless if you’re going to church or not, lot of family things on Easter. I thought it was a disservice to the fans
    6. I think the intent was good but not the practicality.
    They keep discussing the ‘student-athlete experience” and you have 49ers playing at 11 p.m. their time.
    Plus if you want to “Grow the Game” you don’t make mainland fans stay up late to watch what could be another preview of the national championship
    7. IMHO. they were in before Friday. Just depends on the seed.
