    Anyone watching the FSU vs Purdue match. Florida St., the 9th seed, how can that be, they look like a middle of the pack BWC team. In my opinion, the NCAA needs to get rid of this RPI thing, it just is not working. I mean, FSU seeded 9th, and the Wahine, not seeded at all.

    • Orbitalripz December 1, 2012 at 12:49 pm

      I wasn’t opposed to the NCAA committee seeding Louisville (site of this year’s Final Four) based on its RPI. But calling it the 10th best team in the nation, while not even including Hawai’i as one the top 16, was a joke. But who am I to laugh at the NCAA’s infinite wisdom. After all, Louisville represents a BCS conference and Hawai’i doesn’t.

      Round 2 Result:
      @ KFC Yum! Center, unseeded Michigan 3, Louisville 1

      [Let's giive U of L some credit. It did beat Belmont (18-17) in Round 1.]

  • dedicatedfan December 1, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    In my opinion, the Selection Committee should go with the AVCA Coaches Poll, to determine seeding, then the RPI to select the at-large bids. Of course this makes to much sense for the NCAA Selection Committee, that is why they do not go with this.

    FSU just lost to Purdue…I didn’t think that FSU deserved the #9 seed…

    • Orbitalripz December 1, 2012 at 2:14 pm

      FSU, a BCS-conference team, not deserve to be the 9th seed?? How dare you! And I bet you think Hawai’i deserved to be seeded. Sorry, we’re talking about the NCAA committee, and the NCAA does not do Santa at its house.

      • jmy December 1, 2012 at 2:26 pm

        I know! Next thing you know they’ll let UH host!

  • dedicatedfan December 1, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    Well, that is 2 seeded teams going down in the 2nd round. Now if only a few more do, it will make the Selection Committee look like chumps. Or, is it that they do not really care.

  • Orbitalripz December 1, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    I am watching chump-change match myself: (unseeded) Ohio State vs 16th seed Kentucky, which came out of almost nowhere to nail the 16th seed and subregional:

    Set 1: Ohio St 25, Kentucky 18

    • vballfreak808 December 1, 2012 at 3:18 pm

      Right now Kentucky tied the match by winning the second set 26-24 and lead in the third now

      • Orbitalripz December 1, 2012 at 3:46 pm

        Stopped watching. Very sloppy playing by Ohio State, which was 4th in Big Ten. Can tell you before it’s over that it’s over. Ohio State self destructs and Kentucky wins. (Also angry at all that showboating by the Wildcats, and no warning at all by the head ref.)

  • Beauston December 1, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    with all this talk about seeded team going down on 2nd rounds, are we really surprise? It happens every year, yet the NCAA corrupt selection memebers continue to do what they do best which is….
    Let me think this one through for a second…

  • vballfreak808 December 1, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    Minnesota is in jeopardy of being upset. They are tied at 1-1 but Creighton leads the third

  • Gogetem December 1, 2012 at 3:20 pm

    On Leahey and Leahey, Jim had a good point in saying the NCAA wanted UH out as soon as possible so they don’t have to pay for UH to go from Hawaii to the mainland, back to Hawaii and then back to the mainland again. So they make it as tough as possible for Hawaii.

    • Cindy Luis December 1, 2012 at 4:40 pm

      UH does not come back to Hawaii should they win. They will stay on the mainland.
      They need to b in Omaha by Wednesday for practice.

  • vballfreak808 December 1, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Florida sweeps College of Charleston
    Penn State sweeps Bowling Green.

    Kentucky defeats Ohio State in 4
    Minnesota defeats Creighton in 4

  • jmy December 1, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    Only 687 in Tallahassee to watch Purdue-FSU…sad.

    • Grammy December 1, 2012 at 4:30 pm

      jmy get it out of your head about any attendance number. If they even considered it than Hawaii would have been the permanent home of the Volleyball Final Four a decade ago. But why reward the top four volleyball teams in the land with a large crowd and knowledgeable and passionate fans, duh? Send them to Omaha the 2nd best in attendance and the rest of the attendance poor locations because teams and their fans and families can use ground transportation instead of get on an airplane and stay in a resort hotel. Okay, that’s exactly why the ProBowl Players vote to come to Hawaii, its so far they can get away and bring their families out of the winter weather. N(o) C(hance) A(ny) A(ttitude) by the committee. Go Wahine! Shred their bogus seedings and beat UW.

    is anyone else not getting any sound on OC16?

    • dedicatedfan December 1, 2012 at 4:39 pm

      Looks like OC16 is having video and sound problems, right now. Hopefully, they can fix it before the match starts.

      • vballfreak808 December 1, 2012 at 4:41 pm

        Good, thought it was only me

    • dedicatedfan December 1, 2012 at 4:41 pm

      Half the screen has a pic, the other half says, “No Video Input”. Now the whole screen is like that.

  • gabs December 1, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    3 seeds go down in 2nd round.
    kansas was 11th seed? gotta be kidding me.

  • come on! December 1, 2012 at 4:41 pm

    OC16 better get their video feed fixed before the game…

  • dedicatedfan December 1, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    OC16 has 15 minutes to fix whatever problem they are having.

    We are having some audio issues back in Hawaii. We’re working on getting that fixed and will have a complete replay later tonight #OCSports

    • setaone December 1, 2012 at 4:46 pm

      Can’t they run a byline on the screen letting everyone know? Damn. Us Wahine fans!!!!

    • sunandsurf December 1, 2012 at 4:49 pm

      Thanks for the info; good to know that they’ll rebroadcast the match tonight; still, like everyone else here, I hope whatever gets fixed now! Go Bows!

      • sunandsurf December 1, 2012 at 4:57 pm

        Yahooooooo! We’re back! Go Wahine!!!

  • come on! December 1, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    it’s fixed! i hope there are no issues during the game…

    • sunandsurf December 1, 2012 at 4:57 pm

      Dude! Don’t even think that!!!!

  • volleyball fan December 1, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    Even if they have a replay on TV, what about an online replay? Once the match is over, they’ll never show it online. I’m so angry and frustrated, especially since the Wahine have won the first set. Rats!

  • vballfreak808 December 1, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    UCLA down 0-2 to Michigan State

  • Manu December 1, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    Hi Cindy,
    any word if there would be a welcoming support for the Wahines when they return?

  • tsboy December 2, 2012 at 7:22 am

    these ranked teams playing Bowling Green and Charleston. we play Washington. ridiculous. how easy do they want to make it for Penn State to get back to the final four? talk about east coast bias.
