Was a little worried about a trap game with Syracuse today knowing Baylor is coming up tomorrow. So far MU is taking care of business.

Baylor is a tough matchup for Marquette. The game plan has to be serve tough. Baylor’s weakness was passing but their pins terminate much better than Wisconsin’s.

Nice win today with the big game coming up tomorrow against Baylor.  The new video board looks great - really looking forward to that for basketball season too.

Go Marquette!!!

Very nice, thought they’d probably only move up about one spot. A couple tricky games left in the job conference and I’d expect a loss to Illinois but other than that MU should rack up a bunch of wins.

So do Baylor women athletes get to rape students also?

Marquette just won an epic match with UCF. Took the first two sets 29-27 and 27-25, then UCF came back to win set three 25-23 and set four 25-19. The Knights took an 11-3 lead in the fourth before a 4-0 run to get close and 6-0 run to win the match 16-14. UCF was receiving votes in the poll, so another quality win.

Never have seen a team score the last 6 points to win when facing match point in he 5th......

Didn't think MU played well until the very end.......but somehow pulled it out anyway.

Amazing

Big opportunity for Marquette tonight. Illinois has a ton of injuries right now and is 2-4, with their only wins coming both against Tennessee. They also had to play this morning, losing to UCF son 4. They started the year ranked in the top 5 and if they get healthy they’ll make some noise in the Big 10, so a win over them could look a lot better by the end of the season than it might look tonight.

Reverse sweep....MU loses in 5th. Totally fell apart.

Huge missed opportunity

Up 7 to 5 in 5th, thought we were up 8 to 5, but challenge reversal made it 7 to 6.  Illinois went on a 7 to 2 run if I recall....final nails in the coffin.

Take care of business at home and they’ll have a real shot to get one of the top 4 seeds in the NCAA Tournament. They aren’t a top 4 team in the country but if you go into the Tournament with only 4 losses in a schedule that included Illinois, at Wisconsin, at BYU, Baylor, Syracuse, and quality mid majors like UCF, UWGB, Illinois State, and Northern Iowa you have a case you doubt.

Northern Iowa and UWGB are a couple more teams similar to Illinois State and UCF. No cakewalks.

Top 4 seed doesn't mean crap. The Tourney is a crapshoot.  ;)

Crazy match tonight against Northern Iowa as Marquette drops the first set 25-20, and wins the second set 25-22 and prevails in a close 3rd set 28-26.  So then I'm expecting a close 4th set.  But Marquette just ran away from UNI from the get go and were up 9-0 to start the set and won the set 25-6 - wow!

Baylor honestly deserves to be ranked number one in next week’s rankings. I don’t think (though I’m getting less and less confident) they’re the best team in the country but they’ve played at number 9 Wisconsin, at number 8 Marquette, neutral vs. a solid Syracuse, “neutral” (in Lincoln) against number 15 Creighton, neutral vs. an okay UCLA team, and hosted number 17 Missouri and number 13 Hawaii and have dropped a total of 2 sets all year.
