    The Buffs try to get a HIGH quality victory tomorrow (Friday) night on the road against the #2 Trojans, who the Buffs took to 5 sets in Boulder a few weeks ago. (The Trojans lost their #1 ranking after suffering their 1st loss of the year last weekend against a tough (especially at home) #5 Washington squad in Seattle.)

    Match does not start until 10 PM my time. Match is on Pac 12 National during the night and I'm recording it.

    After the way the team has been playing since the assistant coach issue, I am not holding out great hopes of an upset. USC is not going to be happy about that loss to Washington and we do not play as well on the road as we do in Boulder.

    Do we know anything about the assistant coach issue? It seems to me that Ryal Jagd was an awesome coach. Is it likely he could come back? I don't think I've seen anything that comments on why he is gone.

    Just got home, and it looks like the Buffs haven't been able to put up much of a fight so far tonight, having lost the 1st 2 sets 25-12, 25-14,

    Nice job by the Buffs in game 3, as they come back from a 15-18 deficit and win it 27-25.

    USC still leads, 2 sets to 1.

    Lead down to 21-19. TO CU with S. Bricio (probably best serve in the country) still on the service line.

    USC gets the 4th 25-23 and therefore the match. Still a good character comeback/ fighting effort by the Buffs, especially given how ugly the 1st 2 sets sound based on the scores.

    IMO, the team has not played as well since he has been gone.

    This is what was in the Daily Camera after the Oregon match:
