    Women's volleyball is one of the most entertaining spectator sports in college. Everyone in and around Boulder should try to make it to the games and support them every chance you get!

    Dominating performance.

    1-0. I'm really hoping this season shows that VB is pulling out of rebuilding mode and moving toward contention mode.

    This is a match where the Buffs did what they should have done. Texas Southern was one of the weakest teams in D1 last season. So this is good that there was no slip-up. This tournament is actually a good way for the Buffs to start the season.... progressively harder matches but not too tough. Tomorrow they play 2 matches that get a bit more difficult. First match is against Lousiana Lafayette. Given the end-of-season rankings from last year, they are a big step up from TSU but should still not really challenge the Buffs if we play decently. Final match will be against the home team, Sam Houston State. They were much closer to the Buffs rankings last season so, with a home court advantage, that should be a good test for the Buffs but it's one we should be able to win and we'd better win if we really are better than we were last season.

    Hoping the team can get at least 1 win tomorrow. Volleyball in the Pac 12 is a touch sport to come from the bottom, which is where we were last season.

    Just to win some Pac 12 matches this year would be an improvement.

    I was a season ticket holder when I lived in Colorado and wish I had access to watch online.
