    Looking at the results for some of the other teams on the schedule, major oof goes out to Creighton. First five games against preseason @#2, #20, #7, @#33, and #14. On one hand **** Creighton, then now forever, on the other, gosh dang that is just not a friendly start.
    KBB seems to have the same non-conference scheduling agenda as Bobbi tends to have.
    UNI's start is @#4, @#39, #18, #14, #7, just with an extra match (against Liberty) thrown in. Not a whole lot of difference.
    Creighton also has a match against #13 later on, as well as two matches against #16 in conference play. While UNI has matches @#26 and @#16 later on.

    another misc. stat:
    MVC teams played 26 volleyball matches so far this weekend.
    the MVC teams won 12 and lost 14, but of those 12 wins, 11 of them were won three sets to one. The only non 3-1 win was UNI's sweep of Texas State.

    was worried that they might run out of gas, but the pulled off the sweep against Texas State. (who didn't take a knee and play for overtime).
    25-23 25-19 25-13
    UNI hit .297 while holding TxSt to .062
    Was interesting listening to Mick Haley (former USC coach) doing color commentary on the ESPN+ broadcast.

    still some sloppiness that needs worked out, but a good start to the season. Now onto the monster home tournament next weekend.

    Panthers with a good sweep of Texas State, getting better each game, 25-23, 25-19, and an absolute whomping 25-13. Pretty good weekend, a respectable showing against #4 and beating a couple decent teams.

    Tomorrow there's a match between Texas and soon-to-be opponents USC for those who are bored.

    need to cut down on unforced attack errors and service errors.

    UNI got a win against Liberty today, 3-1. They've got one more tonight against a more rested, also receiving votes Texas State. Will be another tough one.

    That's both disappointing and encouraging, for the exact same reasons.

    Now I have done the math.
    There were 183 total points played in the match.
    The set in question was tied after 19% of those points (34)
    Texas led the set in question after 30% of those points (55)
    UNI led the set in question after 51% of those points (94)

    Panthers have about an hours drive south to San Marcos and a quick turnaround with a 11:30 match tomorrow morning, and sometimes it can be tough to generate energy when you go from a packed raucous crowd (even if they're opposing fans) to a gym with maybe 50 people in the stands for a morning match on a neutral court (though I'm guessing there is a decent contingent of UNI fans and Petersen relations that are in Texas and will come to the match), and Liberty isn't a total pushover.

    both teams had some shaky play at times, but that is to be expected in the first match of the season. Would have been phenomenal to get the win, or at least force a fifth set, but still, not a bad showing.... going in and playing the #4 team in the nation on their home floor and leading much of the match (I haven't done the math, but I'd guess that UNI had the lead in each set for more points than UT did, though of course Texas pulled off runs at the end when it mattered most).

    Impressive debut from Emily Holterhaus, coming into her collegiate debut as a true freshman on the road against a packed house at the #4 team in the nation, and playing outside hitter despite having been a middle throughout high school.

    And that's the match, Texas wins the fourth and final set 25-19. Up until I said they were looking good...they were looking good. Certainly looked like they wouldn't mind ripping a couple when they come home next weekend, not that tomorrow night's match will be a cakewalk, though.

    Another close set in the 4th, 15-14 UNI. Regardless of the result, UNI is looking pretty good, considering all the service errors and an injured player (I am realizing that Texas also has a hurt player).

    Edit: Well I said that, but they're not looking too great closing out the match here.

    UNI has struggled at times in recent seasons with giving up big runs late in sets that let their opponent win sets that the Panthers have led for the majority of it.
    And while Karlie Taylor can have a pretty wicked serve when she is on, but when she isn't she is far too likely to rack up service errors (which is obviously the case tonight)

    Panthers drop the third set 25-23. Service errors crushed them that set, not with the amount per se, but rather the un-clutch-ness of them, including the set point for Texas.
