    I agree it would have been nice to see it on the court. It just seems like Stanford was playing their best ball at the end of the tournament and we hadn't really been the same since losing to Baylor. After struggling to beat Utah (who looked like a better version of UCSB), they swept 3 of the top 4 in the B1G by an average of 25-19.

    I feel like the best answer any team had for Plummer/Fitzmorris was us with White/Eggleston. Their passing and defense were just so superior to ours that I still think we would have lost to them in the semi-final.
  3. Maybe we're waiting until the NFL season ends to find a former college coach who wants to get back into those ranks - one that has taken a QB to NY. Mark Helfrich
  4. Hearing my kids laugh their asses off watching Christmas Vacation for the first time last week.
  5. Are you my neighbor. His wife apparently has so many ornaments that she bought 2 more trees to decorate and put them in their dining room. Their kid hid behind one of them when they were playing hide-n-seek. Nobody could find him.
  6. Technically, yes. He's definitely not in charge of any players.
  7. I'm guessing Canada had more to do with what went down at Maryland than we think. That would explain his lack of employment.
  8. UU opens at -6.5. I thought it would be at least 10.

    Easy win over a totally outmatched team. We were more aggressive at the service line than we needed to be, but JE has proven he's not going to dial that back. O'Neal was the only starter that got less than 12 swings. UCSB is a slightly better hitting team than Albany, but I still don't see how we lose a set tonight.

    Molly is being used mostly in a "jumbo package" where she comes in for Jhenna on the front row when we're serving. She only played 10 total points in 4 sets. As for the tournament, we definitely got a better draw than Baylor. The only B1G seed we'll meet before the FF would be if Minny can get past Fla.

    I could be wrong, but this seems like the first week in a while that we're higher in the RPI than the coaches poll. FWIW, Karch predicted last night we would wind up the 3-seed and Baylor the 1-seed, putting us on opposite sides of the bracket.

    BTW, did anyone else notice the, um, unique way the Kansas Libero finished a play? My wife called it the "slow grind" and wondered if Nelson knows what it looks like she's doing. The TV cameras may not have picked it up much, but she did it every time a ball hit in front of her. I found a shot of her doing it in a previous match.

    Confirmed. I was there and went down to court level to watch Claire serve. It's hard to tell sometimes on tv, but it is filthy. That first set was a bit of a hangover. Kansas scored 4 or 5 points in that set hitting over Jhenna's block. That's something we need to figure out how to defend better.
  14. I pretty much agree with Eddie. I need to dial my wife back regarding your 2nd paragraph above. He's in 6th grade and she has said things to him like, "you need straight As to get into Texas." He qualified for TAG (talented and gifted) early in elementary and has been plenty challenged along the way. My daughter (4th grade) just missed the qualifications, so she has been at the top level of students that aren't getting pulled out of the regular class for TAG. She is the one we have had to "advocate" more for and ask her teachers to help us keep her more engaged and not get bored.

    Fair enough. Glad is wasn't related to injury or discipline.
