Is there a Tomek type player on the bench....I'd put her in.

Shoot, is Tomek busy tonight? Maybe he wants to play

Vail is in for blocking.

Not disappointed at all.      We need to remember the Gophers are the #1 team in the country.

Was very impressed the first set. Second one was a little one sided. Maybe we get the next one. I'm not a great volleyball mind, but this is definitely fun to watch.

Nice words from the commentators. Maybe we can get the gophers up here for a game.

What did they say? The wife and I are watching a Christmas movie, so I have it rolling on silent on my phone.

They have to schedule better next year to get respect.  If we are rated in the top 50, we wouldn't get a top seed.

Next year they have to go unbeaten in the Big Sky and only lose to rated teams.

Nothing to hang your head about there.  It's too bad we had to play the top team in the country right away. This team could of won some games against a lot of the teams in the tourney.  At least that is my opinion.

They looked like a P5 team the second half of the conference season.  Need to start the season where they ended it. 

Vail could replace Moser.  Merseli has to start like she ended it, although Minnesota held her to slightly negative hitting.

Agree.  UNI, Wichita St and Creighton are known names in the volleyball world that can avoid the top teams for one or two rounds.  We need to beat them in tournament positioning.

It's nice to get that first tournament game under your belt so you know what to expect next year. Something to grow on.

Just how UND should be proud and nothing to hang it's head about. How UND played them tough in the game early in the year. And both times they played UND they were impressed with the number of UND fans. Talked about how they could already see a rivalry starting in volleyball especially with the tradition and rivalry these two schools have in hockey.

Minnesota swept Hawaii 25-17, 25-17, and 25-19.  By those comparison scores, UND might beat Hawaii.  Volleyball is generally relatively transitive in comparison scores compared to other sports, so UND might have played the Gophers tougher than Hawaii.  This team might have won a first round game against a non top 20 program.

Minnesota swept UCLA to advance to the Final Four.  Mizzou was the only team to win a set against them.

The semifinals are:

Minnesota Vs Stanford

Nebraska vs Texas

And to think that we beat them one game this year and a couple weeks ago we gave them all they could handle in two games.   Our program is very solid.
