Has Jen Flynn finally turned things around at Ohio State or is this just a mirage since they have yet to play the big girls of the B1G? They do have 1 W over Penn State at home but now face Penn State on the road followed by back to back double headers against Minnesota & Nebraska. Emily Londot looks like she is the real deal and it good to see a top level Ohio recruit stay in state, here is hoping the trend continues and more Ohio girls at the top of the recruiting ranks look at Ohio State and not just the big national names.

Ohio State beats #10 Penn State in straight sets to move to 12-0. Next up is #5 Minnesota at home and a test to see if they are a legit program to contend with in arguably the best volleyball conference in the NCAA. Emily Londot continues her stellar play with 13 kills @ a .423 hitting percentage.

Quick update.
  • Currently ranked 9th in the country, I cannot tell you the last time they were top 10 in the NCAA.
  • The Minnesota matches were cancelled due to the Covid, big bummer.
  • They split a pair of 5 set matches in Lincoln with Nebraska who is currently ranked 5th.
  • Swept Michigan rather easily at home.
  • Face #10 Purdue this weekend at home.
Pending the results of Purdue this team could be in the top 2-3 of the best volleyball conference in the country. The bummer is they will not have played the nationally ranked #1 Wiscy & #4 Minnesota teams so they will not be truly tested. Should still get a good seed heading into the national tourney.

NCAA Volleyball brackets are out: https://www.ncaa.com/brackets/volleyball-women/d1/2021

  • Like Basketball it will be played in a bubble, this time in beautiful Omaha NE; they do know how to host this type event having run the baseball tourney for years. Nice break for Nebraska but then again the home cooking didn't help Purdue in hoops.
  • Wiscy is overall #1
  • tOSU is seeded 9
  • Defending champ Stanford had Covid issues and their season never got on track, there will be a new title winner this year.

In sad news the NCAA is really blowing the volleyball tournament. They cut the field from 64 to 48, are only broadcasting the semis and finals on ESPN2, the earlier rounds will be available via the internet with a static camera and no commentary, and the early rounds will occur in a convo center with multiple Taraflex courts on concrete being played at the same time. It is also being reported that Mikasa has signed on to provide the scoring system>



Sounds to me like a JO tournament.
