    Awful draw…can they beat UW at UW?

    • Beauston November 25, 2012 at 11:14 am

      We lost to them in 2010 2nd round

      • warriorfan November 25, 2012 at 11:17 am

        Time for revenge!

      • volleyball fan November 25, 2012 at 1:52 pm

        At that time their incentive to win was far stronger as they were also the regional hosts and certainly they wanted to be there to host it. I actually expected them to win then. Now, both teams would have to fight for a slot in the Nebraska regional. Still, Washington has the home court advantage though they recently lost at home to Arizona State. True, Krista Vansant, their star player was out with an ankle sprain but I expect her to be back strong next Saturday. Watch out for her.

    Screwed again…..WTH

  • Beauston November 25, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Doesnt look like avca and pablo was utilize at all

    • uhfan November 25, 2012 at 11:13 am

      The only thing they look at is how to screw over the wahine once again

      • kaleiboy November 25, 2012 at 11:15 am

        Agreed

  • Vinny November 25, 2012 at 11:13 am

    This is the reason that they don’t tell us the last week of competition RPI. That way they can do their dirty work.

    Also obvious that they didn’t consider the poll.

    • kaleiboy November 25, 2012 at 11:16 am

      RPI is showing 17 today

  • Don W November 25, 2012 at 11:14 am

    …and look at the CUPCAKES for Penn St…and who do they interview: Russ Rose…

    Bias? I think is…

  • jmy November 25, 2012 at 11:15 am

    Penn State with yet another cake walk to the Final Four…

  • HINVaFan November 25, 2012 at 11:15 am

    I knew they wouldn’t consider the coaches poll

    • Cindy Luis November 25, 2012 at 11:16 am

      they said they were going to. but the WCC getting 6 teams in is a joke.

      • kaleiboy November 25, 2012 at 11:16 am

        Liars!

      • kaleiboy November 25, 2012 at 11:18 am

        How much teams did Big West get? WAC?

        • Cindy Luis November 25, 2012 at 12:48 pm

          1 each

      • Orbitalripz November 25, 2012 at 1:48 pm

        I have searched and searched the NCAA committee’s statements on NCAA.com and cannot find any statement that says the selection committee will consider the polls in seeding teams this year. I know there’s that anonymous VT statement, but nothing official. Can you or anyone else print the link that officially shows the NCAA committee is/was considering polls this year?

        As for the WCC receiving 6 berths, as I posted on my comments about the WCC on my list of how UH’s non-conference opponents did in their respective conference, at that time the RPI showed the WCC with 6 teams in the top 50 RPI. San Francisco was not one of them, but St. Mary’s was. I assumed that the NCAA would award the WCC with 6 berths into the tournament in lieu of BYU hosting a subregional, but I was wrong. It not only got the cake, it got the icing on the cake as well.

        • Warrior15 November 25, 2012 at 7:02 pm

          there is no publicly available link to the NCAA Championship manual. the poster who discussed it on VT mentioned that the manual is accessible behind a login wall. the poster did quote excerpts from the manual though.

          but take that for what it’s worth.

    • warriorfan November 25, 2012 at 11:17 am

      This is soo disturbing it’s like they are trying to make their road to a national championship even easier than the Penn State men.

  • warriorfan November 25, 2012 at 11:16 am

    This is a friggin joke!! Kentucky seeded over UH???

    • kaleiboy November 25, 2012 at 11:17 am

      So true

  • dedicatedfan November 25, 2012 at 11:17 am

    Remember what happened the last time the Wahine went to UW, for Tournament action. Swept in 3 sets, looked extremely bad. To get to the Final Four, the Wahine will have to get by, Santa Clara, Washington, Oregon, and Nebraska. Thought last year was bad, but this year is even worse.

    • warriorfan November 25, 2012 at 11:20 am

      They are all beatable teams, though, Wahine just need to use this HUGE diss as motivation. Earn respect!!

      • Warrior15 November 25, 2012 at 7:04 pm

        i agree — all the teams in Hawaii’s path are beatable.

        it’s tough to compare this year to 2010 (as a poster above did). that 2010 for some reason lost its mojo late in the season … remember them getting swept by utah st in the final of the WAC tourney? ….

        i think this year’s team is entirely different … and they can use this snub by the committee as motivation!

  • jmy November 25, 2012 at 11:18 am

    Louisville is 10th seed? I guess hosting gives you a boost in RPI…

  • Jin November 25, 2012 at 11:18 am

    minnesota the 8th seed?
    werent they the team that lost to michigan & michigan st. back-to-back?

  • Jin November 25, 2012 at 11:19 am

    Florida state, minnesota and kentucky. penn state will be in the final four.

  • vballfreak808 November 25, 2012 at 11:19 am

    I just remembered that Washington’s main hitter Krista Vansant has been out the last few matches due to an ankle injury. If she is still out, Hawaii will have an advantage!

    • kaleiboy November 25, 2012 at 11:21 am

      Positive thinking….like that…..

      • Beauston November 25, 2012 at 11:28 am

        When was the last time she played?

        • vballfreak808 November 25, 2012 at 11:33 am

          The last match she played was on November 16th against Oregon where they won 3-2. Since then they went 2-1 and were upset by Arizona State

        • kimo November 25, 2012 at 11:36 am

          She hasn’t played in the last 2 matches last week due to sever ankle injury. Suppose to be available this week though.

    • Warrior15 November 25, 2012 at 7:06 pm

      the UW fans (on VT) are saying she’s started practicing … and will be ready this weekend.

      but who knows if she really will be … and if she is, whether she’ll be 100 percent.

  • HINVaFan November 25, 2012 at 11:21 am

    ACC with 4 teams is a worst joke than wcc

    • Orbitalripz November 25, 2012 at 4:45 pm

      Disagree. They had 3 certains — Florida State (automatic), Miami (Florida), and North Carolina. Bubble was North Carolina State, which got in.

      My joke is the SEC with 5! #14-seed Florida (automatic) and Tennessee are easy picks. I am also ok with TexasA&M, which won the SEC Western Division (weaker of the two divisions).

      But Kentucky as the #16 seed? It was one of the bubble teams and would have been happy to be selected to the 64-field tournament. But 1 of the 16 subregionals?!

      And Arkansas of the weak Western Division? Someone on the NCAA committee had too much turkey. Or razorback.

  • dedicatedfan November 25, 2012 at 11:21 am

    Penn St. will not be challenged until they get to the Final Four. Russ Rose’s record is a big joke. Just once I would like to see Penn St, come out west, see how they do. Penn St. will not lose a set until they get to the Final Four, with all the cupcakes they will face in the Tournament.

  • xtreme November 25, 2012 at 11:22 am

    wow unreal…no seed for Hawaii…definitely a dangerous unseeded team

  • HINVaFan November 25, 2012 at 11:22 am

    This is vball not bball lol

  • im just a fan. November 25, 2012 at 11:22 am

    nebraska 4th seed over oregon?
    whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

  • jmy November 25, 2012 at 11:23 am

    How did UNI get an at-large? Unbelievable!

  • GO BOWS! November 25, 2012 at 11:27 am

    Omaha regional definitely the toughest. Oregon, BYU, Washington AND Nebraska!?

    LETS BE THE FIRST EVER UNSEEDED TEAM TO WIN THE NATIONAL TITLE!

    • kaleiboy November 25, 2012 at 11:29 am

      YES!

    • gtehoinv cant even.. November 25, 2012 at 11:34 am

      great way to look @ it …..

  • Manu November 25, 2012 at 11:29 am

    Well Wahines…..Let’s prove the RPI wrong and take this sorry poll and spank them. Be alert and ready!

  • vballfreak808 November 25, 2012 at 11:34 am

    At least Karissa Cook for Stanford feels for us. She tweeted “Shocked Hawaii got no love. Stoked to be in the cal regional.”

  • uhfan November 25, 2012 at 11:35 am

    Wonder how pissed Dave is

    • Cindy Luis November 25, 2012 at 12:47 pm

      very

  • mauna November 25, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    Cindy have always said that the NCAA loves the SEC and this definitely shows, when they seeded Kentucky, an unranked, 10 loss, #19 RPI team to host. The NCAA’s seeding thinking will never ever change. The road is tougher, but to be the best you have to beat the best. Prepare them well coaches, and leave it all on the court ladies!!!

  • ladida November 25, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    UH’s #17 RPI as of today is the NCAA selection committee’s excuse for not seeding Hawaii.

    • Cindy Luis November 25, 2012 at 12:59 pm

      Then what’s the excuse for seeding the Nos. 18 & 19 RPI teams?

      • ladida November 25, 2012 at 2:33 pm

        Biased rewards west of the rockies.

        • ladida November 25, 2012 at 3:24 pm

          EAST, was standing on my head like the committee.

  • Manu November 25, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    Hi Cindy, Any word if the Washington regionals will be televised, or can be watched on any of the ESPN, PAC 12 or Big West sites?

    • Cindy Luis November 25, 2012 at 6:13 pm

      have not heard about TV yet.

  • Kazu November 25, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    I hope Penn State gets knocked off.

    • uhfan November 25, 2012 at 7:16 pm

      They could. They got a brutal first two rounds

  • sharene November 26, 2012 at 7:55 am

    For whatever reason we were not allowed to host, so be it. Maybe it is because it is difficult for family and friends and schools to come over to cheer vs. UH’s home fans. But, if that is so, then just tell us. Don’t get our hopes up.

    • Cindy Luis November 26, 2012 at 8:16 am

      It has nothing to do with a team’s fan base. or their families coming over to watch.
