    The Gophers are lucky they've got Sameday. She seems the only one performing. I thought winning the first set at Illinois would energize them, but...

    For the Gopher freshmen it's maybe seeming like a long season right now. Feels like their defense isn't putting much pressure on. They need to gut...

    I think you're right. The hope, though, is that Illinois is pretty inconsistent. It will be interesting to see the match, since it's played in old...

    "we already know." How do we know that? Is there info released at some other site? I'd be interested to know. Thanks.

    Does anyone know when the Gophers' 2018 spring schedule will be published?

    Up to now anyway, this year's team still has a better W-L record than last year's team, doesn't it? What last year's team had that this team doesn't...

    Does anyone know if any of these recruits are power hitters? Or are they just slappers and singles hitters?

    Rendahl is a 6' 1" middle blocker. Isn't that pretty small for that position? Or does she have inhuman elevation? Likewise, Rollins, an OH, is...

    I think the key isn't actual in-game coaching. It's recruiting. Attracting absolute top-flight, even world-class, talent. The MN men's teams, both...

    I also noticed that MN kept serving to one WI player on the back row to the right side. Was that WI player an especially weak returner?
