Volleyball 2012... FIRST YEAR BIG SKY!

Recommended Posts

While our official schedule hasn't been announced yet, other big sky schools have put out their official schedule. Based on what I have snooped around so far, here is what ours will look like so far

Thurs Sept 13 Montana State

Sat Sept 15 Montana

Sat Sept 22 @ Idaho State

Sat Sept 29 Sacramento State

Thurs Oct 11 SUU

Sat Oct 13 Northern Arizona

Fri Oct 19 @ Montana

Sat Oct 20 @ Montana State

Thurs Oct 25 Idaho State

Thurs Nov 1 @ Sacramento State

Thurs Nov 15 @ Northern Arizona

Sat Nov 18 @ SUU

Missing: Northern Colorado, Weber State, Portland State, Eastern Washington

Haven't taken the time to look around the other schools for non-conference games, should be very exciting for the girls, I expect them to do very well in year 1.

Anyone else that knows of games within the conference or any non-conference please feel fair to share.

It appears that we will be playing both Oklahoma and Air Force at the Northern Colorado Classic in Greeley on Sept. 1. Not sure if we will be playing UNC in a non-conference game as well.

According to Stephen F. Austin's athletic site, we will be hosting them, UW Green Bay and USD on August 31 and Sept. 1 in our tournament. But obviously that conflicts with OU and Air Force's schedule that shows us at UNC's tournament that weekend. I am guessing that either SFA just has the wrong dates listed or that it is NDSU at UNC's tournament.

USD put out their schedule a little while ago and they have the same dates down for the UND invite. I am leaning towards to the mix up between UND and NDSU. CSU, who is also in the tourney in UNC, will have their schedule out this week. Perhaps this will clear things up a little.

The Red River volleyball player who signed with NDSU this week said her final choices were NDSU, SDSU, and Duluth. Did UND recruit her? What was the story there?

As of last winter, the rumor was UND didn't think she was big enough to play for them. Not sure if that's true or not but it was a real strong rumor all school year.

She is as good an athlete as this city has producted in quite a while. I'm suprised if the UND staff passed on her for that reason.

With that NDSU schedule, I think I'll remove the UNC tourney off the schedule. More importantly however.....

I've gotta I'm equally, if not more, excited for the volleyball season as I am for football. I've always been a football first guy, but have fallen in love with the volleyball team through the transition!

Not only was the MidCo deal exciting, looking at the TV schedule we can add two games that will finish our Big Sky home schedule.

I also assumed the @ Portland State game to be on the 6th. So if that holds, all we are missing is @ UNC.

Do you think there are some non-conference games between Sept. 1 and Sept. 13? Would be great to get some high RPI teams on the schedule.

I would think there would be a game or two inbetween those two dates. Perhaps a tournament somewhere. Last year, they had 29 regular season games in the Great West. Now with 20 Big Sky conference games this year, and the 4 non-conference games already in, there would more than likely be 3-6 more games left.

I think Volleyball is the real sleeper sport at UND. It seems to be a sport that is really on the rise. It has real potential for attendance growth. Hopefully UND continues to get better.

Totally agree. And it appears that coach Hardee has the team ready to compete right away in the Big Sky. I would not be the least bit surprised to see the volleyball team have the highest finish of all of the new Big Sky sports this year.
