    2011 Volleyball Championships

    The BIG led the way in total teams with 8 and 5 national seeds.

    PSU has won the last four titles and has the number 8 overall seed.

    Nebraska(2), Illinois(3), Purdue(5), Minnesota(13), other teams in the field from the BIG are Michigan, Ohio State and Michigan State.

    Something else that is notable:
    Iowa State is the No. 4 overall seed and UNI comes in at the No. 6 overall seed.

    I wish Iowa could become competitive in the BIG, it would be nice to see.

    How does the 5th ranked team in the country (RPI) end up being a 6 seed in a 64 team tournament?

    Iowa finished 11-22 towards the bottom of the B1G. They have their work cut out for them to compete with UNI & Iowa State.

    How do the top 3 teams in the poll end up in the same regional?

    The people that do these brackets screw up every sport; not just basketball.

    oops, I did not look at the brackets. UNI is seeded 6th and they only seed the top 15. So not a bad seed, hopefully UNI can take advantage of the 2 home matches to get into the sweet 16.

    Ohio State beat MTSU today 3-1 in the opening round.

    UNI plays Niagra, my wife and I coached against one of their players, Kari Honomichl, when she was in high school. Major talent, but a major attitude...very good all-around player.

    Wow, really, that is what you are going with?

    The narrowmindedness that surrounds this sport is absolutely amazing.

    If you want to watch real athletes play a sport tune in.

    Go crawl back under your rock.

    Michigan State was knocked off by No. 1 seed Texas.

    Michigan knocked off No. 11 Stanford
    PSU, Purdue, Illinois, Minnesota and OSU are still alive.

    Illinois/OSU will play each other and are in the same bracket as Michigan, who will play Florida next.
