    Early season jitters, a three hour time difference and freezing cold in Provo. They will find their stride. Too bad tonight isn’t televised…bet we’d see a big difference.

    No surprise…BYU played like the #2 team, UH played like an unranked team…

    I am hoping for less hitting errors this game, and less serving errors , really boils my blood when easy servers keep missing, if you are gonna miss serve it tough….

    Honestly, warriofan (sic) do you do everything in your life perfectly, let alone with jet lag and in a place that is 80 plus degrees colder than you’re used to?

    They are a lot younger than BYU (actual age wise)and are still getting used to all the new personnel. Though they shouldn’t read these toxic blogs they do, and its easy for toxic commenters to hide behind the anonymity of the Internet. Those comments hit hard, and can be demoralizing,

    Too bad there isn’t a blog for anonymous observers to critique toxic commenters’ every move…bet they wouldn’t last five seconds.

      This is funny coming from someone who has no problem throwing the coach under the bus before the season even started.

      • Karmady

        That’s because he is paid to coach, and should be at least 75% of the formula. Most of the players you like to beat up on don’t even get 10 cents off their tuition and are largely playing for the sheer love of the sport. Ever consider his leadership (or lack thereof) might be the root cause of their problems on the court?

        Teams overflowing with talent kick coaches to the curb all the time.

          Do you have me confused with someone else? I never beat up on anyone. The only player’s I have been critical of are JP/Olsen yesterday because they had a whopping 18 errors combined!!!!!

          That’s not gonna get it done against anybody in the MPSF, and those two certainly are on more than 10 percent of scholarship.

          I wouldn’t put down the coach that is giving these kids a chance to play D1 MPSF volleyball,, some of them have no business in D1 to be quite honest.

            “Do you have me confused with someone else?” Nope – but thanks for making my argument for me with comments like:
            –”…some of them have no business in D1 to be quite honest.”
            –”The lack of talent is pretty glaring…”
            –”xxx is an error machine…”
            –”…Also too many errors, not sure how this team can pick up the hitting percentages.”
            Here’s an idea – perhaps….COACHING???? Heard of Butler’s basketball team? Gonzaga? The 1980 US mens hockey team? A successful coach takes what s/he is given (or in this case recruited….) and builds a TEAM, enhancing the strengths while working on areas of opportunity. This team has plenty of talent, contrary to your limited view.

            You need a new name, because you certainly don’t act like a fan. At least, not the kind of fan the WarrioRs need.
            These young men are student athletes with away games that involve a significant time change, gruelling travel (in coach seats designed more for toddlers than adults) 100% of the time. Even at that, they took a set from BYU and the match last night was FAR from a blowout. They made some mistakes, yes, but they’ll learn from those and get better.

            Many are also far from home and families and their regular support system; they come here, only to have anonymous bullies pick apart their performances and say hateful things, all conveniently protected by the anonymous internet.

            Frankly, I wonder why you are still allowed to post on a board sponsored by the local newspaper, which should be supporting, and reporting on without bias or opinion, those young men representing the proud tradition of UH Warrior volleyball. As I said, coach doesn’t get a pass because he knew what he was getting into. Not sure these young men did, but I am sure of one thing — they don’t deserve the crap you dish out.
