    No sugar-coating it, the ladies were poor tonight.

    But, they were able to overcome themselves and win. And that's all that really matters.

    With that said, tonight was one ugly display of volleyball.

    To quote Tracy Claeys: There's no such thing as a bad win. They got the job done, though the first 1 1/2 sets were like sleep walking. Maryland won, I believe, nearly all the statistics but still lost the match. How'd that happen? As in several previous matches, MN seemed to wear their opponent down.

    The ladies put together a couple of strings of good play in sets two, three and four. The first set was a mess and the middle of the third wasn't much better.

    Some of it was the fact that we're getting a bit spoiled with outstanding play being the norm. And some of it was just not being ready at the start.

    Samedy and Rollins both had good matches. But the rest of the team was in a funk.

    The bottom line is still a win. It was just far from a thing of beauty.

    They had an outage of some sort, per twitter.

    They had a bat flying around the arena. It had used up its eligibility.

    Gophers win in 5 at Ohio State. The Big Ten is so tough! Except for Rutgers, possibly, on any given night....

    MRJ: "Samedy and Rollins both had good matches. But the rest of the team was in a funk. "

    The BTN+ color announcer, who clearly knows VB, kept saying that Rollins was shaken by 2 early serve return misses and remained pretty much out of it after that. He praised Pittman. He also said that Rollins and Hart leave something to be desired as passers and serve returners and that other teams will take advantage of that in the NCAAs. It's fantastic the Gophers have won the Big Ten, but giving away first sets won't be a good idea in the post-season.

    Talk about a mixed bag.

    The good: Big 10 champs.

    The bad: almost everything else displayed this weekend. Yuck.
