    B1G Game 4: Gophers host Ohio State (1-5-23)

    Gophers go into the 4th quarter with a six-point lead, and then Ohio State runs off 14 straight points before a time-out is called. Much too slow! Ouch!

    Do you want a Gopher volleyball specific board?

    Thanks for the new board! But why is it called "Gopher Women's Volleyball Forum" instead of simply the "Gopher Volleyball Forum"? For that matter -- and I'm sure someone must have pointed this out in the past -- why is the men's basketball forum called "Golden Gopher Basketball Forum" and the...

    New Volleyball Coaching Staff

    After reading what those who have been coached by her are saying, I don't think we could have hired anyone better. To a program like Minnesota's, she is going to be able to recruit like crazy. I think she probably was a better hire than even Cook himself -- and that's saying something.

    Gopher Volleyball 2023 Season

    That's interesting. But I kind of like it when people refer to them by their first names. Knowing them personally isn't the only thing that might indicate. It also might indicate you're treating them as human beings, not as commodities whose purpose is to entertain us as we root for our favorite...

    With Barnes and Booth transferring from Minnesota to Wisconsin, does that make Wisconsin the B Team?

    Twelve of the 14 were seniors or graduate students. Only Kami Miner of Stanford (sophomore) and Taylor (redshirt sophomore) weren't. Very impressive!

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    And her re-ranking now has the Gophers 4th, right behind Texas, Lousville, and Wisconsin. And who do you think she now has at #5? None other than the Gophs opponent, Ohio State.

    Well, let's hope it's not Ohio State. I think they're playing at the same 11:00 a.m. time.

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    Of the top 16 seeds, 14 have won, and Oregon is up two-to-one in sets. Only Creighton lost. It looks like we'll have three regionals with 1-2-3-4 seeds, and one regional with 1-2-3-5 seeds.

    And they finished 3rd with a 2-1 record against the two teams ahead of them.

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    Gophs are now at #8 in the RPI, with Ohio State at #7. Let's hope for a 7-seed, though I would like to see this weekend's team play Texas again.

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    A few observations about B1G teams: Ohio State's losses to Maryland and Indiana opens up an opportunity for Wisconsin to move into the top four, depending on upcoming matches against Nebraska and Ohio State. Minnesota drops four spots after losing at Penn State and winning at Rutgers. Some...

    Thanks, Ignatius. Big Ten movers since the October 2nd Top Ten: Purdue at #9 dropped out (they were 12-1 at the time; now they're 16-6); and Wisconsin, not listed on October 2nd, is now #7 (they were 8-3 at the time, and since then, have won 9 straight).

    It seems strange that that's not something you can challenge. With a camera angle looking right down the net, it would seem to be one of the easier things to review.

    It was mentioned here some time ago that the Gophers hadn't yet put up their Elite Eight banner from last year. It's still not up. Does anyone have any information about this?

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    What was neat about this match was that two players, Lauren Crowl and Arica Davis, who are among the most vocal on the bench in cheering on their teammates, came off the bench to bring that same energy on to the court and make major contributions toward winning the match.
