Who has more depth than us? The guys coming in off the bench are better than most teams starters. Just a word on Hawaii. Yes they have Thelle (sp) and he just might be this years top setter, but they will have trouble passing and their libero play is less than solid. Their issues might not show up until they start playing top competition, but they are not as strong as their fans believe.
not the highest caliber competition, still
tonite was about Simon Torwie, came in 2nd set, and just like Nikolov had the wow factor serving from the get go, Torwie just unleased these downhill scary bombs, getting 4 aces in two sets and wrecking havoc, a little bit like Hanes from Ohio State (the pig used to spit at opponents) in that NCAA semi at Pauley. Also tried Towrie at MB to supplement the blocking.
Godbold is like a reincarnation of Ensign, just superb accuracy.
the depth of this team is just freaking crazy.
have to temper these weren't top 10 teams, so Lewis and Loyola next week, especially Lewis is gonna be the real gauge of this team early. Lewis has some players.
