  1. Cubicle1126:

    texas defeated penn st in 5

  2. Warriorfan:

    Those losses by Long Beach are embarrassing( the air force one especially)
    The wahine again, won't be helped by it's league opponents in rpi, ugh.

  3. Maverick:

    Regardless of the result with USC, I think USD deserves a top 10 ranking. Impressive road wins.

  4. Maverick:

    2. Agreed. Big West not looking strong.

  5. Warriorfan:

    3. Definitely, I hope they keep taking care of business because they have a history( like the wahine) of getting duped by the NCAA committee.

  6. Vbfan:

    At least the San Diego loss is not a bad loss unlike the loss to Cal last year.
    It's still very disappointing though, they should have won that match. If they didn't blow that big lead in set 2, I think they win 3-0 or 3-1

  7. Maverick:

    6. Agreed that losing set 2 changed the match. If UH won, we would be talking more seriously about a top 5 ranking. What's done is done so we can only focus on remaining matches. And while I am happy that Shoji has his record, I am much happier that the distraction of the record has passed.

  8. Cindy Luis:

    6. at the time no one knew how bad Cal would be but agree it ended up being a bad loss
    and do believe is Hawaii had just taken care of business in Set 2, it probably would have only gone 3.

  9. Warriorfan:

    Set two against USD I felt the team was just going through the motions. Winning set 1 so easily probably hurt them.

  10. Cindy Luis:

    9. Also thought USD started to make some good adjustments. that said, UH had the momentum, a lead, a let it get away.

  11. jmy:

    Had the momentum in the 4th as well, but let SD get too close...

  12. Warriorfan:

    Yea this loss still stings a week later , but I'd rather they beat Texas and Lose to USD , then beat USD and lose to texas.
    At least they got that giant rpi boost of a win over Texas who beat PSU.

    By the way future opponent Creightton is down to Cal 2-0, hope they can come back and win that one.

  13. OrbitalRipZ:

    Re: 3 Nebraska (4-1) or less likely San Diego (4-1) will crack the Top 10 in Monday's Poll -- at the expense of the loser of tonight's Hawai'i vs UCLA

  14. Warriorfan:

    Nebraska has no business being in the top 10.

  15. Warriorfan:

    Creighton got destroyed by Cal, I guess either Creighton is over rated or Cal under rated.

  16. jmy:

    Beach lost to Miami in five...

  17. Cindy Luis:

    thanks ORZ. was a cut and paste that i messed up

  18. Cindy Luis:

    thanks JMY. it's at the bottom of the top 25 scores

  19. Cindy Luis:

    dang, had done a whole Big West scoreboard that didn't get posted. oh well
    Maybe later
