    Concordia-Irvine, it looks to be like TF Wells is calling the VB game tonight. I’ll stick to UH again to win. Even though it is only 23 minutes into the match.

  6. Savich January 11, 2019 7:27 pm

    ๐Ÿ™‚ Three Hawai’i players, wow. I am not sure who to cheer for. That must be a personal matter for the parent’s of the three players. After all, they did have a choice to stay home, instead they had to leave.

  7. t103 January 11, 2019 7:29 pm

    Oh my, that quick 3 set to Gasman in the middle from Joe all the way from almost the sideline was nasty, haha Concordia wasn’t ready and didn’t expect that one!

  8. T103 January 11, 2019 7:58 pm

    Savich, what the heck are u talking about? This is a volleyball thread, can u please keep it on point and not about other topics?

  9. Savich January 11, 2019 8:21 pm

    Nobody mentioned Larry Tuiletta. Who is 6-2. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. brandon January 11, 2019 8:25 pm

    Why isnt savich banned yet?

  11. T103 January 11, 2019 8:27 pm

    Savich, Tua isn’t on team anymore cuz he used up his eligibility. Side note, so many delays and challenges. it’s their right to do so. anycase, good to see Charlie go to the depth of the bench, this year Is looking promising!

  12. T103 January 11, 2019 8:34 pm

    I know that on the football blog run by Tsai, he mentioned that he had to delete a lot of random posts by savich, like the kind we are seeing tonite. Not sure if he’s banned or not from the football blog. Savich, if u can’t somehow keep on topic of what this particular blog is about and keep posting random non-connected things, u should probably just sit back and enjoy reading the comments on this thread. Or Cindy, maybe someone should give warning and if it carries on, ban them?

  13. Savich January 11, 2019 9:06 pm

    Nate Herbig? Nothing news still. Who’s buying? Only them.

  14. T103 January 11, 2019 9:11 pm

    I give up! lol I wish this blog had a feature where we as blog readers could flag a particular poster and it automatically allows us to not see any of their posts. One can dream.

  15. jm2375 January 11, 2019 9:20 pm

    T103 – Tsai tried, but other bloggers arenโ€™t banning him, so … Every so often, he gets out the broom.

    Just ignore the troll.

    BTW, itโ€™s Tui not Tua.

    Good game tonight. Still need to clean up some mistakes.

    I know it’s just the beginning and we opened with a couple of weak teams (how was this year’s CUI team compared to last when they beat BYU?), but I’m not convinced we have the passing and blocking/defense to compete with the likes of the LBSU’s, BYU’s, dare I say CSUN’s although they had a fine year last year and are looking just as tough if not tougher.

    Savich, BYE. Although I do wonder what an internet troll, such as yourself, looks like in real life.

  17. Cindy Luis January 12, 2019 5:25 pm

    Sorry, but I don’t have the authority
    Have mentioned it to our web guys so we’ll see what happens
    Thanks for hanging in
    new thread up for Saturday
