One of my biggest regrets was not going to more VB games during my time at JMU.

You definitely missed out. No matter how good or bad the team was, it was always a good time.

RE: VolleyDukes 2017
via SnapChat I see Joey D is spending time with the Volleyball Dukes today.

That guy spends a lot of time practicing with our athletic teams... so he's either an amazing guy that gets stuff done and cares about the people that make him have a job... or... the side many on this board naturally take that he doesn't get anything done but goof off with league teams.

I don't either ... so, are the Dukes ranked nationally at 11-0? Is the CAA a really bad volleyball conference?

We are not ranked (and when I last checked we are not RV either). I don't think it has to do with the CAA, but rather more a SOS thing. We were supposed to play Auburn and Miami in the MIA/FIU Invitational but that was canceled due to the Hurricane. It would have been a good challenge since Auburn is 9-2 and Miami is 8-0 on the season, although neither made the tournament last year. At this point there is nothing we can really do about it; just keep winning the games in the CAA and the CAAT.

Yeah, Miami was the top team on our schedule it looks like. Towson is 16-0 and isn't RV either.

RE: VolleyDukes 2017
VolleyDukes take the 1st set over UNCW, 25-19. Game is being streamed live via MadiZone. Hard to tell what kind of crowd there is with the camera angle, but hopefully there is some good support there on campus tonight for the undefeated Dukes.


edit note: Good Gals take 2nd set, 25-23. Need 1 more to close this out.

edit note: Dukes drop the 3rd sete, 25-23. Nice comeback after digging a big hole early, but couldn't get over the hump at the end. Heading to the 4th...

For what it's worth, Towson finally lost their first game tonight, so we are the last undefeated left in the conference

RE: VolleyDukes 2017
Dukes down 14-7 in the 2nd set. Undefeated season in serious jeopardy at this point.

edit note: Dukes making a marvelous comeback in Set #2. Cut the lead to 16-14 and riding big MO at the moment. Good match on MadiZone right now.

edit note: Dukes drop Set #2, 25-22. Down 2-0.

5th set is only to 15, instead of 25. We can do this!

RE: VolleyDukes 2017
I watched a lot of this game and it was an intense match. The beginning of the second set was rough for VolleyDukes as they fell behind 8-1 but battled back to tie it on a couple of occasions. This is one that the Dukes will certainly look at and think they could have and probably should have won. That said, props to CoC for the win; they were pre-season favorites in the CAA.

It seemed that we shot ourselves in the hand, so to speak, with unforced errors, on serve and on dinks that went straight into the net, mistimed spikes where the spiker is on the way down as the ball is on the way up and we never got a hand on it. Perhaps Charleston had an equal number or more unforced errors but it NEVER seems that way to me with my purple bias. BUT how close can you get without winning?
We saw it yesterday.
