Great match Cougars! Congratulations on sweeping #5 USC and #1 UC Irvine in back to back weeks.

Terrific, Spectacular and nothing short of a gut wrenching performance that the Cougar Volleyballer's displayed the last two nights in the Smith field house it was truly "surfing the NAR !

Hey not to point out reporter errors on some of the facts, but here I go.

First off it is the USC Trojans not Spartans, you rebounded back from that in the next paragraph.

I was there and it was Joe kauliakamoa who jumped up on top of the scores table, out of bounds tipped it back in play that eventually did not score a point but it did ignite the crowd.
Yes Josue did slide into the scores table but it was not the play that got the crowd jacked up and back on the Trojans back.

Yes Rob leaping into us on the north side was another spark, but you forgot about Joe Kauliakamoa who went under the net on the SC side hit it in play back over the net so the boys could get another kill shot.

Just some minor corrections that all really got the Smith Field House rock-in.

@ Blue Coug

I gather from your blog that you did not get to see the match's in person cuz it was a blue cougar smash fest yes a blast baby.

The SC boy's played well and pretty good sports for the most part. Hey dude yes this league is the Volleyball holy land of off the chart teams.

Hey get to the games the next team in the Smith Field House is the Cardinal from Stanford.

What are you talking about?

Not only was I at the match Saturday night and watched the entire Friday night match on BYUtv, I played volleyball for BYU with a teammate who later went on to coach both Penn State and BYU to national championships.

I do not have a personal blog, although I often share insights with my son who does maintain a blog, PlanetBYU. Feel free to drop by sometime.

Volleyball is one of the most exciting sports there is. The athleticism of the players is amazing. It is even more fun having a team as good as BYU right in our back yard. Hopefully they can take it all the way and win another national championship!

Since this is a story from the BYU site, why are they talking about the lady Utes gymnastics team and why are they showing a photo of the women and not the men's volleyball team? I was able to watch the match on Friday night on t.v. and am really impressed with the way they are playing right now. Let's go get another national championship Cougs.

MJB, you should read the article.
1. It's not a story from the BYU site, it's a College roundup article, meaning it has info of all college sports in the state.
2. They don't talk about the Red Rocks (or "lady Utes gymnastics"), that's the Utah State gymnastics team.
3. The ski team is the Utah team that is mentioned, and it was for winning the Denver Invitational, which is kind of a big deal.
