Volleyball vs Hawaii (we get swept)

Submitted by formerlyanonymous on December 12th, 2009 at 11:20 PM

We play the Wahine in about 10 minutes. Should be a good match if we bring the same intensity as yesterday.

I've got a cold, hence staying in for the game, but it might keep me from watching the whole match. That and I have work tomorrow at 6am. We'll see how it goes.

We're wearing maize.

Go Blue, Beat the Wahine.

12-8 at first time out for Hawaii. Our serve is on and Bruck looks a bit better today. Bower has made a couple key plays on the block/attack so far.

I find it amazing how teams continue to block Hunt wrong on the left side. Stanford and now Hawaii keep throwing up blocks that are perfect for right handed hitters. As a lefty, she can take a free shot at their far right arm and force it out of bounds for an easy point.

Much better spread of the offense for Hawaii. Our game plan was to shut down #5. They took advantage of it on that 5-0 run. Spread the ball to the right side hitter and we made a few errors. Time for Mrs. Rosen to make the next move.

There's a ton of double calls today in all 4 games. I don't know if that was a emphasis for the officials during this weekend's prep or what. Tough call.

Down 0-1. The good news is we got out of that funk that started the set. We need to jump ahead early. Crowd is definitely pro Hawaii.

This isn't going well. We're not passing well, which is putting us out of system, limiting our attacking capabilities. We're not getting two blockers in front of the Hawaii attackers. We're not doing much well at all.

A Michigan team in the national semifinal? In 2009? We should have known it couldn't happen. I haven't been this depressed since 1953*.**.

*Or whatever year Brian said it sucked this much to be a michigan fan.

** Yeah, I was born in 1984, screw off.

Sad and disappointing end to a great season tonight. Really proud of how this team played this year. 2009 sets another high point for Michigan Volleyball. This senior class is going to be tough to see go, and good luck to them all. They have represented Michigan to the highest standard.

Hope to see a Penn State-Minnesota final.
