  • 2020 Volleyball

    Never to early to start talking about next year, and there's a tournament being hosted by UNI that looks tantalizing: UNI, Syracuse, Missouri, Utah, and Texas. Four quality teams, teams that should make the NCAA tournament with relative ease, and also Syracuse will be there. There will of course also be the USC-CU-UK-UNI tournament, that I think is being hosted by Kentucky this year. UNI will also be taking on Illinois twice, once in Green Bay and once at Notre Dame. Just another brutal, brutal out of conference schedule, as is the norm. Always fun.

    Will be a bit of a trial by fire for a redshirt freshman at setter, after not having any spring practices, probably not working any summer camps, and who knows what the preseason practices will be like.

      We'll get to see the Petersens vs Petersen!
      Josh Mahoney, Ellie Blankenship, Adam Koch, Jacqui Kalen, David Johnson, Madison Weekly = Golden Panthers on and off the court.

        Sounds like the match against Texas has been cancelled, but UNI is hosting Minnesota instead.
        Also, it would appear that the tournament with Creighton, Kentucky, and USC has been cancelled.
        Of course all of this is still tentative (as is the season in general, if we're honest), as the covid situation continues to evolve.

          That blows, but was somewhat inevitable. Just gotta win the games we get.

            Noticed on the tentative schedule that our first two conference games will be playing at Illinois State and Bradley. Tough start to the conference schedule.

              With Big 10 announcement, Minnesota and Illinois matches off the schedule.

                I'd be shocked if we don't go to an all MVC schedule, maybe with an extra round of games so it's a 27 game schedule vs just the normal 18.

                  Not sure an extra round of games would really mean much.
                  Frankly, I wouldn't bet much that the season will take place at all.
                  And if it does, I really don't see how they could do a fair NCAA tournament with at least two of the top conferences not playing anyone outside of their own conference. RPI would be worthless without interconference matches having been played.
