RE: Vball getting it done ?!
Can anyone explain the punctuation used in the subject line of this thread?

It confuses me every time I see it pop up on the top of the list.

Ok. Originally I put a ! in the subject line when the Huskies were steadily winning and "getting it done," but then the team slumped, so I added a ? to denote whether they still were or not. Consider it an either/or depending on how you think they're doing. Or a sign of success when it's not over yet. And why am I wasting time on this?!

You forgot to put a space between the last word and your punctuation .!

PVK's punctuation made perfect sense to me. Huskies are in the process of getting it done but the task isn't complete, at least not yet.

If the Huskies beat W. Michigan on the road Wednesday, they make the MAC tourney. If not, and Buffalo beats Akron (likely) NIU and the Bison have the same record. Head to head play has both squads trading 3-0 wins earlier this year in Buffalo. I don't know what the tie breakers are after head-to-head play. The Huskies have played well of late in no small part to the vastly improved production from another outside hitter not named Jablonski. Nickolette Nedic has been on fire. In the last three matches she has 35 kills and only 5 errors in 69 attempts. That's around a 40% kill rate which is phenomenal for an outside hitter.

Wow. Kudos for actual assessment. I personally do not know enough (except some boring history) to take this beyond trying to get some attention up on the forum for a winning Huskies team.

Can't overlook the performance all year of Francesca Bertucci as the libero! At 5.91 digs per set, she is ranked number three in the entire country in digs per set. Just .08 digs behind number 2. Probably the best libero in NIU volleyball history, and we've had some excellent liberos.

And here we are ... today, 5 p.m. at WMU, ESPN3 ... with two recent posts I chained, some good assessments ...

... sharing some of the time when Hammock & Co. will be hosting Miami-Ohio, 6 p.m. kickoff, on CBS Sports Network. Hope someone at least keeps the updating vball scores going for the most-assuredly massive crowd in Huskie Stadium.

Lost to WMU 3-2, so no MAC tournament this season. Still, a pretty good effort, finishing 17-11, 10-08.

They started the season hot, went cold in middle of MAC play, and limped to the end with a few more wins.

RE: Vball getting it done ?!
I wonder if Gooden plans on retiring from coaching at NIU. His quote after the match is copied below. Not sure why he includes the retrospective note, combined that with his assurance that things should be okay for the immediate future.


"There are so many positives that have come through, we've been able to see some of them in the performances of our players this year and I think a big core of those players are returning. I am very thankful to have been able to coach, not only this team, but all the teams through my time at NIU. So, I think that there are a lot of positives moving forward."

Gooden's contract expires 6/30/23, so idk what that means. Hard to tell with the way STF works with stealth extensions, but you're right about that rather odd way of putting it r.e. the good times.
