    Well this sucks. Why can’t we watch the Verizon Volleyball Challenge for free? I remember last season they played all the preseason tourneys for free. Boo..

    Its all about the money. I have slowly been losing interest in UH football, its truly sad to see what is happening at UH. Poor leaders and no mo free sports pretty soon. Only a matter of time bfo no more Wahine volleyball too.

    We should all rally and send complaints about this to both the UH athletics and OC16….Cindy, do you happen to know a contact or the head honsho for OC16 where ligitimate complaints can be filed? Also a contact for the UH Athletics dept that is directly involved with the media whohelp set this fee thing up?

    Cindy,

    Any news on Jane Croson’s status for this weekend’s tournament. In Ann’s article, it mentioned Jane missed Thursday’s practice due to flu-like symptoms. Please follow thru, if you can, thank you.

    • mauna August 31, 2012 at 10:56 am

      Team policy is if you don’t practice the day before the match, you don’t play. So Kastl will start in Jane’s position. Jane will play on saturday against Baylor.

      • Steve August 31, 2012 at 3:01 pm

        mauna,

        Are you saying, due to not practicing on Thursday, Jane will not play at all, tonite, or just not starting. I can see not starting, but not playing, I have my dought on that. If things are not going the Wahine way, I can see Jane coming in and playing, if she is able to.

    Excited to see what Ashley can do on the left.

  • mauna August 31, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Ashley will be fine, chance to show she can play.

    • Steve August 31, 2012 at 3:10 pm

      I hope you are right, otherwise it will put alot of pressure on Hartong, who is still learning the LS.

    Shoji was on the radio with Scott Robbs this morning. He said it would be a gametime decision on if Croson starts.
