KU vb

  • @jayballer54 wanted to let you know the gals exhibition game is on espn3 and KUvb said it will not be blacked out. We shall see.

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Hey, thanks for the update, I really appreciate that, I’m getting anxious, I hope the ladies keep things rolling this yr, They are building a sweet program. Have you happen to hear any more about the add on the facility - I knew they were going to make it bigger, or that’s what I had heard, another couple of thousand seating would be nice - -you heard anymore? - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54 I’ll find out. The Montero girl tore her acl. Bad news! She started most of the season. Anxious to see who will replace Cassie wait.

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Let’s see isn’t the exhibition this sunday? could be wrong. - -I don’t think we can ever replace Wait, but I hear what your saying, one’s like her are hard to come by, what a player - -BUT we still have a really good squad " THE PAIN TRAIN " plus several others some good returning plus I think we got a couple of really good transfers didn’t we? - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54 game tmrw at 1

  • And we off and running. - Hopefully the start to an awesome season, we are pretty deep at all positions, let’s hope we can get that 2nd straight Big 12 Championship and make a deep run in the NCAA’S.

    We have some players for sure , I mean obviously our All American Kelsie Payne, I believe also Ainise Havilli is another All American, then we have Zoe Hill - -And then we have Madison Rigdon , Jada Burse , someone else to keep an eye on is Ashley Smith - -we got Alexander - -we got depth. Just exhibition today but we won all 4 sets, normally it only takes the 3 to win the match but both agreed since exhibition to play 4 sets. - - We won the 1st two sets easily - -25-11 - - -25- 12, UMKC play a close set in the 3rd 25-20 - -then in the 4th set we played of a lot of reserves but still won 25-22. - -really looking forward to a great season. - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    What a nice surprise the lady’s volley Ball program has been in the last few years. The have now established themselves as a to tier program and hopefully they can keep it at that level for a long time.

  • Well the ladies off to a good start. - - 3-0 for the year, struggled some but hey it’s early had to pay 4 sets against Missouri State and then 5 sets against NC State beat NC State 2 wasn’t easy but still come out undefeated this weekend, way to go ladies. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • #9 KU plays #13 UK in women’s volleyball at 1:00 PM today. The game will be on ESPN3, but since it is in Lawrence it will be likely be blacked out in Kansas thanks to Zenger’s stupid deal…I will have to stream it using my cell phone hot spot that bypasses the local address.

  • Or pay xtra and get it on cable!❤💙

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Pay for something we want to watch? Isn’t that a violation of our constitutional rights as fans?

  • My cable provide does have access to ESPN 3 but not for blacked out programs like this game. It does not have access to the Time Warner Metro Sports channel which only Comcast does (Time Warner and Comcast were merging). AT&T and Google, the other cable providers in KC do not have access to Metro Sports either. I know most KU fans in the KC Metro are are blacked out which is utterly stupid since it is has the highest concentration of KU fans in the country…and it is not just the Kansas side, the entire metro area including Missouri is blacked out.

    To watch the game I have to connect a laptop to my cell phone hot spot and connect the laptop to the big screen tv…a royal PIA. I still hate $%^#$ Zenger

  • @JayHawkFanToo Much like the Dodgers situation where millions of their fans can’t see their games.

    You could move to SEC country here in South Cackalackee. You would be force fed Gamecock football on every media outlet, in every TV commercial, and on all cars , trucks, and DUI-mobiles (mopeds) until you puke. But you could see everything KU-related on TW and ESPN3.

    TW is, of course, now Spectrum, because TW had the world’s worst company reputation. How many companies have ever tried to reduce their brand-name recognition?

  • Twc is now spectrum sports on Cox or Jayhawk network. I don’t get espn 3 either. I’d pay extra to get it. Love the pre and post game fb and bb reports too.

  • @mayjay

    KU takes first set 25-23…Yes…

    Comcast is by far the worst when it comes to costumer service/support. They will be a good match to Time Warner.

    My local provider, Consolidated Communications is not nearly as bad but not as good as SureWest, the company they took over was, or Everest the company SureWest bought out. No question that Everest, the original company the started the fiber optic service in the KC area, has the best support and customer service but it has gotten worse every time it was absorbed by a bigger firm.

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    I have the entire sports tier from my cable provider but the Time Warner/Spectrum sports channel that carries KU programming is not even an option. I contacted them and indicated that Time Warner made it prohibitively costly (probably as part of the deal with KU) and neither Consolidated nor AT&T or Google, the other providers in the Metro are carry it, only Time Warner and Comcast.

  • KU takes the second set 25-20. Women’s volleyball is so much fun.

  • I hate everything about my cable provider, but I love my KU sports, so it’s worth it to me.

  • KU takes the third set 25-20 and the match 3-0. Great game for the Lady Jayhawks.

  • Well the ladies win a couple of more matches today, Beating Belmont 3-0 this afternoon and then Beating # 17 Purdue 3-1 tonight, looking strong , we have beaten # 13 Kentucky this year, and Now # 17 Purdue - -HUGE match tomorrow as we play # 9 Creighton, time for a little revenge as Creighton is the one’s who ended our season last year in the tourney, - - The ladies improve to 9-0 - keep it up looking for a great year. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54 can’t believe they’ve been on the watch espn 3 app.

  • Dam, have you ever had one of those days when you need to stay in bed? - -Ku football gets their ass handed to them and then the ladies fail to show - -Man do we miss Cassie Wait or what? - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • Not over yet.

  • It is now! 😡 Bad day for KU!

  • Gosh my bad luck, ku football is now 0-8 with me in the stands and I tried to get VB tickets but it was sold out. It was pretty disappointing really, I mean the team that knocked you out of the tournament and you get run outta your own building? Better pick it up,if you want to complete for back to back B12s.

  • Well the ladies pulled it out last night against Iowa State. - Iowa state ranked 18th in the Nation. - we were down 0-2 and came back and won the final three.

    These ladies need to stop all these five game sets, my heart is not good lol can’t take a total year of this, I think the ladies can play a lot better. - -Having said that 2-0 in the Big 12 now so guess I shouldn’t bitch. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54 I’m a little worried we may end up being the 3rd or 4th team in the b12. We had better start playing a little better.

  • @kjayhawks It seems a little strange really. - -I mean so many five set matches, something just seems no to be there - -right now anyways. - -Could it be we are missing Cassie that much? - -Kelsie doesn’t seem to be hitting on all cyclinders just one game at a time I guess. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY TIME BABY

  • Well the ladies got the Victory today . Swept Texas Tech 3-0 - -Didn’t realize but our last 5 Big Twelve contests going back to last year we had had to play the full five sets. - -Good to see the sweep today KU now # 11 in the Nation and 14-2 on the year. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54

    They actually played TCU…

  • @JayHawkFanToo Ya - - I knew that - -don’t know why the heck I typed Texas Tech lol - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54

    You have been working overtime on recruiting. Don’t give up on Dotson…after all, you were right about McCormack, right? I am hoping you are right about Dotson as well. 😃

    Thanks. I’ve adopted Devon from day one - -as you know that’s my boy , although there have been and still some shaky period , just like McCormack I feel when it’s all said and done Devon will be here at KU. - -Will stay with this until something official - -I just feel it. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    You can watch the KU vb game here at 5. I hope!

  • @Crimsonorblue22 well piddly poo. - -Just read your post lo - -just got through listening to the games. The Ladies played pretty well tonight, had a slip up in the 3rd set but came back strong in the 4th. - -took the match 28-26 - - -25-22 - -17-25 - -& 25-17. Played pretty well. You consider WV was 12-4 on the year - -and 3 of those losses came against top 10 teams in the Nation their losses were to Penn State - -Minnesota - - & Texas. - -heard they should of beat Texas took Texas the full five sets and had Texas down in the 5th set 9-4 but couldn’t hold on. - -Big road win for the ladies now 4-0let’s go ladies - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • Ladies came out on fire after losing the third set; good win. Playing in the big arena with so few fans looks more like practice than a game. I like the KU set up better and with the planned improvements the new place will be awesome.

  • @JayHawkFanToo Payne just not as tough as in the past! Mad dog carrying them

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    I really enjoy women’s volleyball, it is a fun sport to watch and having a top team to cheer for makes it even better. Hopefully the program will stay a top 10 fixture.

  • @JayHawkFanToo I think they’ll drop off next year. Losing 3 all Americans?

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Now that the program is riding high, hopefully they are recruiting top players so the program will reload rather than rebuild.

  • @JayHawkFanToo they have some good sophs now, but 3 all Americans?

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Not sure what’s going on with Payne. - there are times though when we need that point - -she bringing it home. - It’s almost impossible to block her shot. - - A Couple of there is a couple of others - -Burse, - -Hill all really good. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    I don’t think you will see them drop that much - -have had some really good recruiting - and some really good returning players. -I mean it would only be natural to slip a little with losing who we are losing we have 8 seniors but still I feel pretty damn good with what we got coming back. - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    I replied earlier but my post is not showing, oh well…

    I said that programs like the UConn women’s basketball loses 2 or 3 All American year in and year out and continues to win big and it has set the standard for continued excellence for a program. Hopefully KU can do something similar and become a top 10 fixture moving forward; the new upgraded facility will certainly help.

  • We will have a pretty good group returning next year- -All Sophomores - - well they will be JR’S but pretty good: – - Our starting Libero - - Allie, Nelson & these others play ALOT. - -Jada Burse - -she is damn good , - -Zoe Hill - -Really good , MMocke NWoke she had a BIG game last night , think you’ll gonna see big things from her too. - -& Ashley Smith ew gonna be fine - -I think we going to be just fine. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • Got a couple of tough matches coming up. - – Saturday @ Oklahoma - -then the "BIG ONE " - next Wednesday " TEXAS ’ - -gonna be huge - - let’s rock ladies. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • Awsome performance by the ladies today - totally over matched Oklahoma 3-1 - -25-18 - - -25-19 - and then we got screwed 3rd set 24-26- - and we took frustrations out in the 4th set 25-11 - kicked their ass - -now it’s SHOW TIME. - -TEXAS this week were now 16-2 ranked 11th but more then likely moving up - against them piss ants # 5 Texas - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • OK, -I know - -I know , starting to get pumped for the ladies tomorrow night. - -Huge match against Texas here. - Last I knew we were # 11 - -Texas # 5 - both undefeated in Conference. - hopefully place will be jumpin. -Going to be on ESPNU you all need to check it out. - -Let’s do this - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54 we are now #9 and Texas is #5. It’s really a must win if we want to defend our B12 championship, and it will be a battle.

    It’s going to be a HUGE battle I hope the ladies bring their A game tonight they will need it, I don’t think they have played to the level that they can yet this year. Tonight is going to be one of those nights. - -ROCK CHALK ALLD AY LONG BABY
