No Megan Cooney because of illness really hurts. Going to have to adjust, Ladies. I-L-L

Ugly first set. Passing was atrocious. Someone besides Terry has to step up on offense or this is gonna be over quick.

Wow that failed challenge by Illinois was horrible officiating. Clearly that ball was out and the call seemed to take all of our energy out of the set. Not having Cooney really hurts, forces Collins to play right side which she is clearly not as comfortable with. Hoping for a very different set 2

Ladies fought hard but without Cooney everything was just not quite in sync. Plus when their setter is blocking you one-handed with her back turned, you know itā€™s just not your night. Still a great season though!

Really hope Texas clowns Nebraska in the regional final.

I have to pull for Nebraska now. Their starting freshman libero, Lexi Rodriguez, is from my hometown of Sterling, IL. Maybe a little karma since the first fireman ever lost in the line of duty in Sterling was laid to rest today. šŸ˜Ŗ

Tough night and tough loss, sad that we couldn't be at full strength. But a Sweet Sixteen was a great way to cap off a pretty good season!


We were 1 of only 2 unseeded teams to make it past the first weekend, pretty cool. The elite 8 is all seeded teams ā€” Nebraska (10) and Minnesota (12) are the only teams left playing past their expectation (purely by seeding). Another strong B1G showing.

Got me to thinking, what is the Big Ten's strongest sport from top to bottom? Women's volleyball has to be up there, as does men's basketball. Thoughts?

And huge props to all the Illini fans who made the trip to support the team. As another poster said, you guys looked great on TV. Hope you enjoyed the time and weather in Texas.

Also, worthwhile to mention the 3 Big Ten East teams were all eliminated before any of the 5 Big Ten West teams were. It took pairing us up against each other to knock the first of us out.

Nebby is stacked mighty enough to win it all. Lexi Sun is an all American, multi time all Big Ten selection and can't make the floor because the freshmen are just too good. I have Nebby beating Wisconsin in the final.

Congrats to the ladies on all the big victories this year. Got some fire power on the bench with injuries that'll be fun to see back next year.
