    Just not getting it done, it's hard to win when one of your 5 starting hitters is a big offensive liability that can't be counted to put anything down and your setter is a huge blocking liability and not the best decision maker on the court, plus the coach seems to be clueless about substitutions.

    I can only imagine how good this team would be if the coaches had the foresight to start young players with the potential to grow throughout the season like Mol and Franciskovic, or Mckellar. instead of two players that are as good as they are gonna be and wouldn't start for any other MPSF teams (except maybe Pacific and UCSD)

    If they don't sweep both from Pacific, it's over.

  20. Cindy Luis:

    Cardinal win 15-7, scoring the last five points.

  21. jmy:

    Disappointing, though not unexpected...

  22. volleyball fan:

    19. Sorry to say it might be over even with the wins over Pacific. USC is already ahead of UCLA just now and already has a 2-1 set advantage. All they need is to win one more set against UCLA and they already have a two-match advantage over Hawaii plus the tie-breaker advantage. And USC still has UOP to play. I was wrong about Hawaii having a good chance to make the playoffs after their second win over UCLA. Eight other teams are simply better. Hawaii would have to upset BYU and Pepperdine twice to get ahead of USC. I hear your disappointment and frustration.

  23. FormerlyWarriorfan:

    Time to fire Wade, he's had one good year (his first) since then nothing but mediocrity, UH deserves better.

  24. volleyball fan:

    23. The one good year he had Umlauft whom Mike Wilton recruited. Since then he hasn't been able to recruit real volleyball stars. However, Mike Wilton quit, too, on his own volition, perhaps over his frustration in being unable to recruit local talent. I won't state an opinion on Wade's future. Let the chips fall come what may.

  25. vbfan:

    #23-24, as I said earlier Wade will be back. Stephen Tsai said he signed a 2 year extension. You can argue about the wisdom of that decision, but it's done and all we can do is support the team.

    Officially Wilton retired, but he knew his contract wasn't going to be renewed.

  26. vbfan:

    I will say though that Wade been a bit unlucky when it comes to recruiting. The Canadian recruit Maar was supposed to be a star but he bailed at the last minute to go to a school in Canada, and then Tuileta switched his commitment to USC on signing day. There was also that setter recruit I forgot his name but he changed his mind at the last minute too.

  27. Cindy Luis:

    23. he's not going to be fired after getting a two-year extension. (according to Tsai, I haven't gotten that confirmed).
    24 Wilton retired. as for being unable to recruit local talent, I don't see that as completely true. Clay Stanley comes to mind. That the Hawaii kids who were on the USA JNT chose to all play at Stanford was not his fault.

  28. formerlywarriorfan:

    And yet another reason for me to dislike Ben Jay. complete overaction over the UCLA wins , UCLA is in a free fall and those wins aren't that impressive anymore.

  29. volleyball fan:

    27. Clay Stanley only played for two years, then left in order to play for the national team. I don't blame Mike Wilton for not being able to recruit the Shoji brothers and other talented players. He was simply sadly resigned. I had talked with him once about it. I've known Mike Wilton ever since he was the women's volleyball coach at Cal Poly. So I could discuss matters with him personally.

    28. I just checked the Trojan website and they beat UCLA in four sets. Now they are ahead three matches. Sounds like chances of making the playoffs are over. So Wade got an extension of two years in his contract. As for disliking Ben Jay, I'm mad that he and Apple extended the contract with OC Sports for six more years and I can no longer watch home games. So I stopped being an avid fan of men's volleyball and turned to watching BYU. I plan to watch the two matches with BYU in person and my feelings will be split just like watching the women's matches with Cal Poly. Which means that I'll be happy for which ever team wins and won't be sorry for which ever team loses. Sorry I'm a fickle fan, but OC Sports took it out of me regarding UH men's volleyball. If BYU wins the conference, I'll be able to watch more volleyball matches even if Hawaii is not in it. As my name says, I'm a volleyball fan, not necessarily a Rainbow Warrior fan. And tonight I watched both matches, BYU and Stanford matches. The latter was more interesting, but the former had much better quality video. So whoever keeps broadcasting freely with the best quality will win my support there. So I'm not too frustrated that UH keeps losing. I can hardly watch them anyway.

  30. Cindy Luis:

    28. I don't know that Wade got an extension. that was Tsai's blog. don't remember seeing in the paper. so can't tell you if it happened after the wins over UCLA
    29. Does it matter that Stanley only played 2 years. I've know Wilton as long as that too.
    28. see MPSF scores thread. if UCLA keeps fading, they've lost 5 in a row, UCLA loses the tiebreaker with UH.
    you could have seen the UH matches online via livestreaming. something you can do for Pacific as well.

  31. MPSF fan:

    19. Agreed

  32. karmady:

    I still think UH can beat BYU at the Stan Sheriff -- and it would be great if they had a huge crowd to help them along.
