I wish we could have sent Taylor to the sweet 16. But we still made such a great run in the Pac. And in reality, you have to feel sorry for csu. May sound odd to say that after they won. To not really. Sure, they get good crowds. Sure they won a lot- but against who???? As an avid follower of the buffs, we saw ranked teams match after match. Our players competed against the best. And they did us proud. CSU really will just remain in the mountain west second tier, afraid to play with the best. I wouldn't trade even one of our players for theirs. Nicole Edleman- great setter. Pfefferle- awesome upcoming player. Gabby and Cierra- no comment needed- just awesome. Cuff- love when she scores from the middle! Each and everyone of our players stepped it up. Proud of each one, Great role models for all of our daughters!! When it comes down to it, the CU players have the courage and heart to play and compete against the best. csu to me looked overrated today. Had we played on a neutral floor or in boulder, we would have won for sure. So proud of our team. Next year will be tough to replace Taylor, Neira, Kelsey and Rachel. But I hope they remain buffs forever and get credit in the future for turning this around. And i I hope coach Kritza leads us to many more great seasons. She deserves so much praise for what she has done. Let's begin to fill the CEC for this team. Get the -Unit there too. Sorry to to create a separate thread for this. But can't let the season end without giving a shout out. This team earned it. Thank you, Taylor Simpson, for being the spark and leader that made Cj volleyball fun, competitive and a contender.
