    42. Tickets to the general public go on sale Tuesday

  2. Maverick:

    50. I can see RPI position slipping to 14 or 15. However, AVCA poll results, pablo, and strong win against Texas helped, if considered. Otherwise, I have no idea how UH got 11th seed. If we keep to geography, it was either 11th or 14th, and Kansas was 14.

    see link for printable bracket

  4. Cindy Luis:

    34. thanks for getting to that first

  5. Cindy Luis:

    52. UH was No. 11 in this week's RPI. 12 in AVCA poll.

  6. Andrew:

    Cindy, what are your initial thoughts of the seedlings and regionals?

  7. Maverick:

    I know. Question is what were they in the final RPI calculation?
    A couple of independent sources estimated a final position of 15. And given the weak teams it played, UH's RPI score will drop after this weekend. Don't know how other teams with RPIs near them fared, however.

    49. I ordered tickets but i stupidly threw the letter away. I'll call SSC. I guess I just need to know when they are going to start becoming available for PU.

  9. Cindy Luis:

    58. See new thread on ticket info

    56. sorry have been too busy writing breaking news stuff to really analyze it.
    Agree with some that they continue to force the SEC issue. This is not football and the BCS thinking should not be applied to volleyball.
    Think the USC regional is pretty stacked.
    Think Texas has a cakewalk to the final four. Nebraska might give them trouble if both reach the Lincoln regional but Nebraska is very beatable this year.
    Think Illinois overseeded but that was how the RPI was for them this year. and they got protected as regional host. Think that regional is up for grabs. Could end up being Missouri and Florida in the final. Missouri beat Florida twice this season.
    As for the Kentucky regional, don't see Penn State getting much of a challenge.

  11. Cubicle1126:

    the committee sure wants an sec team to get to the final four ...

  12. Andrew:

    Yes I think as well that the committee pretty much gave Texas a ticket to Seattle

  13. Cubicle1126:

    i don't know ... i think texas has a smooth path to the regional ... but waiting there is potentially a san diego team that almost beat them in 5, and a vastly improved nebraska team playing on its home court.

  14. Tomas:

    So lucky CAl-B and CAl-N have the Wahine in the Big Sky...they made it!
    And what happened to Coach Sealy and the Bruins? Go Wahine, home in the
    Stanley this week!

  15. jake:

    missouri bracket is interesting not a cakewalk as some may suggest. purdue has two wins over nebraska at home and at lincoln.

  16. Cindy Luis:

    64. Are you referring to UC Santa Barbara and Cal State Northridge. And the Big West (not the Big Sky)?
    As for UCLA, bad season 15-15 overall, 6-14 Pac-12

  17. OrbitalRipZ:

    Re: 60 Cindy called it very early that UCLA would not make it to The Dance, and I called it very late. Lol.

    Without question the Southern California regional is the most difficult, and I think the winner of the CSUN vs Colorado St face off will give USC a run for their court lives. That BYU vs Arizona St matchup is another toss up. Kansas will be looking to Round 2, so Wichita St could pull an upset over Seed 14 Kansas.
