    Keep on keeping on! 🙂 Wishing Coach a happy birthday dinner, even if it’s arena food while watching the next match.

    Let’s go bows! Take care of business tonight. No let up. Play your game, and scout TCU’s tendencies well. You can bet TCU is hungry for a win/upset … but Hawaii just has to come out and make a statement in the 1st round!

    I also think that the selection committee should have taken a long hard look at ASU. The problem is that the “last 10 games” criteria is a secondary one. ASU’s RPI was 39, and that was a primary criteria. If ASU’s RPI was good enough to get them in, then the committee isn’t even gonna look at the “last 10 games” played. Unfortunately, that’s just how the NCAA prioritized things for the committee to consider.

    ASU didn’t put up a fight at all until the 3rd set against FSU, but were still swept. The tournament would have been better served leaving out ASU, the 8th place team in the Pac-12. A team like LBSU, imo, would have been more competitive against FSU.

    8. I agree. I’m sure Colorado is not happy either, having finished ahead of both Oregon and ASU. At some point, there’s got to be some common sense involved.Sorry but 2-8 in last 10 should have said something.

    Cindy. May I please ask why my posting to say hello and to agree with #4 was removed?

  12. frings December 4, 2015 11:38 am

    #4.So I’ll post again. Hello Bellingham from the Ohana in Vancouver, USA. Pass, set, CRUSH!

    GO BOWS!

    Hmmm, there’s a new banner inside the SA firewall about subscribers experiencing issues.

    So if you also subscribe and haven’t found our host’s story about today’s match, dig backward in the “sports” tab to the Dec. 3 postings. Her story is misdated, which is a shame because reading about the various connections was really cool.
