    50. BIG network or Pac 12 tv? 😉

  2. Hot:

    So Cindy you know who this player is already?

  3. WhyWhat:

    What happened to " you'll know when I know '-) " ?

  4. Cindy Luis:

    52. Yes
    53. my first responsibility is to the paper. working on the story for the print edition.

  5. Brandon.:

    You people need to be patient. Yeah I'm excited as well, but Cindy will tell us when she has time and she's ready.

  6. mainlandgal:

    Wasn't this supposed to be a Sand Volleyball story thread. Show the Sand Team some respect! The Sand season is less than 2 months ... let them have some hard earned, well deserved story threads and comments of their own.

  7. WhyWhat:

    54. Your words not mine.

  8. Cindy Luis:

    You're right. my words. my decision to not let the blog drive this story before i get my job done.

  12. Cindy Luis:

    thanks for the links.

  13. lkapulani:

    #56...i totally agree w u!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Mainlandgal:

    Thanks #63 -- I'm so tired of the Sand Team getting shoved aside. They deserve some respect and stories/blogs of their own. Especially the Sand- only girls. They give a lot to the team and the sport and representing UH Athletics!! GO SANDBOWS!!!

  15. Cindy Luis:

    they haven't been shoved aside. they have had plenty of stories. they have their own thread. not the first time it's gone off topic.
    TRANSFER thread is up so discussion can move there.

  16. lkapulani:

    but off topic for 40 or 50 comments???????????not right!!!!!!!!!
