    Gopher Volleyball 2021-Fall Season

    Nice first set by Gophs, hitting .467, with five kills coming from the middles. But there were 0 blocks in the set; neither team had one.

    Gopher Volleyball 2021-Fall Season

    Yah, I was responding to a comment about the lack of a killer instinct. I thought Morgan was pretty good at getting the team fired up in that way.

    Gopher Volleyball 2021-Fall Season

    There sure has been a lot of pessimism in this forum. As I recall, there was similar pessimism -- both about the team and about McCutcheon -- early on during the non-conference schedule a few years back, and the Gophers ended up doing pretty darn well that season. Tonight's win, without...

    Maybe due to the loss of Taylor Morgan?

    Gopher Volleyball 2021-Fall Season

    In a post-game interview, Florida Coach Mary Wise said in her 31 years of coaching, Samedy's performance might have been the best she's ever seen by an opposing team's player. Samedy had 31 kills on 71 swings, with only 4 errors. Minus Landfair, the Gophers did stick in there. But again, we...

    Gopher Volleyball 2021-Fall Season

    As with that 24-20 lead against Baylor, the Gophers are having difficulty at the end of sets. As you noted, in last night's match they led 23-17 in the first set and lost. In the second set, it was 21-21, and Texas then finished with a 4-0 run. In the third set, which the Gophs won, they led...

    Gopher Volleyball 2021-Fall Season

    Tonight's match will be the first one where last year's recruits, three of them starters now, will be playing in front of our great Maturi Pavilion crowd. It'll be interesting to see how they respond to that. Unless, of course, the masks will muffle the noise a bit.

    Is Frost fired before or after the end of the 2021 season?

    I clicked on this article on gopherhole.com's front page. I thought it was about the Gophers' Women's hockey coach, Brad Frost. Thank heavens I was wrong.

    Hole Poll: What is your prediction for the 2021 Gophers Volleyball season?

    I'm a student, so I hate to make this prediction, and I certainly hope I'm wrong. But I just don't see how the Unviersity is going to get through this semester with in-person classes. Just about every staff person I have talked to on campus in the past few weeks agrees with this pessimistic...

    Gopher Volleyball 2021-Fall Season

    With both Baylor and Texas coming up, Texans Glenn and Wenaas, who also looked good, should have a lot to get excited about. I wonder if those schools recruited either of them. Glenn is listed at 5'10" but, besides her serving, she sure looked solid at the net too, with Alexis Hart-like kills...

    Shocker at Justice Department: More evidence the Trump Administration is most corrupt in American history

    Whatever time it is, it is kind of spooky. Don't count on a protest. I think this is like the end-of-the-world predictors. They just pick a new date. (The next Friday the 13th isn't until May 2022.)

    Shocker at Justice Department: More evidence the Trump Administration is most corrupt in American history

    Thank you for the clarification. Just a few more hours until Trump's reinstatement as U.S. President. It is a bit weird, though, that Friday the 13th was picked for this event.

    Shocker at Justice Department: More evidence the Trump Administration is most corrupt in American history

    Justthefacts, this is the first time I've run across your name. Are we related? I also have a second question, after reading several of these comments: Is Spoofin spoofin?

    Gopher Volleyball 2021-Fall Season

    The Gophers opening opponent, Baylor, was put on four years probation and fined $5,000 for its sexual assault scandal. Though the allegations were about the football team, which did receive some recruiting restrictions, it seems like the entire athletics department was put on probation. This...
