    In 2018 after the 2nd WI match, which MN won & played well in (a much anticipated match-up), in their next game, the Gophers walked on the PAV floor for warmups looking dead, uninspired and they played that way, too. That surprised me as I expected a really excited Gopher team. I noticed the same lack of inspiration last night vs. Clemson. But it's not shocking if Stanford took a lot out of them. After all, what do you do for an encore after you beat #1 & the defending NCAA champ? (The MN team's losing of late leads is what worries me. When Stanford's in trouble late, they just give the ball to Plummer. But who else has a Plummer?)

    Hopefully Sameday takes on that role this year. Miller is also looking good with some excellent serves. She can also block, which was the weak skill for SSS.

    Pitt swept Penn State in Happy Valley 17, 21, 23. The Panthers pretty much outplayed PSU in every facet of the match.

    Meanwhile, at the Pav, Clemson defeated Oral Roberts in four sets: 14, 23, -23, 22.

Maybe Penn State will win both against Pitt this weekend. I'd probably still rank Stanford #1 if I was a voter, Nebraska still has to prove themself IMO...

    1. Stanford
    2. Texas
    3. Baylor
    4. Penn St
    5. Minnesota

    7. Nebraska
    Pittsburgh won the first of their home-and-home matches with Penn State -- at Penn State. Go figure! This was the first time since 1986 that Penn State has lost a non-conference match at home 3-0. Pittsburgh must be for real.
