The west coast teams just keep beating each other up. Makes me want the boys Tourney to expand even more.

Good call. Both teams coming off losses.

Pepp over UCLA in 4 at UCLA.  Puts Pepp in a 3rd place tie with Santa Barbara in the MPSF and 1 game behind Long Beach State for 2nd, 2 games behind BYU for first.  Some really poor volleyball at times on both sides of the net.  Way too many errors and way too many wasted opportunities by both sides.  Don't see either doing much if they make the Final Four if they continue to play that way.  A few days ago I didn't think I could see BYU winning the NCAA Championship because they are too dependent upon Taylor Sander and relying on one guy typically doesn't win you a National Championship, but they are clearly playing at a level above UCLA and Pepp.  Maybe those programs turn it around.

And Loyola beat BYU. A lot of parody around the NCAA vball scene.

USC beat ucla in four last night. Ucla really beat up with injuries. Two weeks ago i thought they could go all the way.  Now they aren't looking so good.

I have no clue whose coming out of the west but I am really liking Loyolas chances more and more. Especially since they will be playing at home.

So's Melissasmooth.   Keefe is a dirty old man.    Appropriate pictures for both.   
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Yup, but could be a lot better if he'd grow a pair.  Has better physical tools than a guy like Micah Christensen, but Micah doesn't worry about the "Wow!" plays and instead sets a consistent ball.  Thus, he is the starting setter for the US Men's National Team while Shaw can cry to his HOF dad.

http://www.scvavolleyball.org/documents/JBC2011FinalStandings.pdf

See: 17s results.  We kicked the crap out of his Mountain View (MVVC) team in the Finals.  They'd take a timeout, the team would huddle up on the sideline, and he'd go sit on the bench with his towel and sulk with his head in his towel.  Whines about every call (or non call).  Could be a much better player if he'd just worry about what he can control and be solid.

Those players are the worst. For any sport.
