Maruska checks back in and has a bad pass and then hits it out.

Each team at 97 digs. We had 78 vs Pitt.

She has to be injured. She's easily our best blocker, and not bad offensively. Perhaps, she could have put at least a little bit of pressure on Nunnerville. 31 kills in 4 sets in inexcusable. No adjustments. No answers.

She clearly has talent, but she's an error machine-- both on offense and defense. And opposing teams already know to serve to her when she's in.

Well, looks like this year's team is far worse than last year's. They should win most in C-USA (except for Western Kentucky, of course).

Disappointing so far - sure - but don't know if it's fair to say we are 'far' worse. The only match we 'should' have won (based on rankings) was SC. Oregon and Pitt were both ranked more highly than we were. That said, you'd kinda hope a top 20 team would win at least 1 of 3 against other top 20's.

It also hard to say we're worse than last year's squad, let alone "way worse", when we have the exact same roster with a couple of new recruits. We are not playing well at the moment-- making way, way too many mistakes/errors-- and, frustratingly, we've been unable to make adjustments against SC and Oregon when in each match one player was beating us single handedly. Kostelecky's absence certainly hurt yesterday, particularly on defense.

And the record thus far is not pretty.

#9 Baylor lost to unranked Tennessee in 5 sets. Baylor plays Pitt this weekend as well.

Minor upset as UTEP beats Arizona.

Wouldn't that be a Miner upset?

Notre Dame, who lost to WKU in 4 sets in the season opener, and who many believed would be WKU's toughest opponent all season, just got swept by Bowling Green (1-2 coming in against weak opponents) in South Bend.

I’m too depressed with our early results to laugh…

But that right there’s funny
