Gameday Prep: Blazers vs. Green Wave


Awwwww yeah! A special thanks goes out to Time Warner Cable for letting so many people in the Western New York area have the privilege to watch this intense women’s volleyball match. The J.P. Losman connection is unavoidable, and we know a solid group of our audience will be rooting for Tulane. Let’s break this down and get you ready to slap some balls.

Announcers: Anne Marie Anderson and Pick

Rosters: Tulane, UAB

Stats: UAB, Tulane (PDF).

Things They’ve Been Saying:
– This will be the highest rated women’s volleyball game in Buffalo sports history. Okay so no one is saying this, but I am.

– Nice little piece on Tulane coach Liz Kritza.

– Got any questions? Well what are you asking me for?!? Check out the UAB Womens Volleyball Media Guide!

– The Green Wave is going for its ninth straight win, which would push their record to 3-0 in C-USA.

Pump-Up Song that Will Melt Your Face Off: “Big Balls”, AC/DC

Fun Facts:

– Why God Why?!?

– This is a sweet shirt:

– Tulane recently took a trip to Croatia! Read all about it on their team blogs!

– I’ve put far too much time into this.

Okay, that’s it. Game time. I’ll be around all day, so if you have a thought drop a line. Comments, email, or our AIM: GoosesRoost28. Seriously, I don’t think anyone has ever used that, but it’s there if you want it.

Go Wave.

    Most disappointing Roose’s Goost post ever. You have a women’s volleyball game and you give us no pictures of women volleyball players? Ting a ling a ling.

    Best. Post. Ever. Please keep the volleyball previews coming. Other than #3 UAB doesn’t look that bad. Granted the UCLA photo does take the cake…..

    I think you guys may have found your niche. UAB volleyball is seriously underserved on the internet.

    UAB Won 3-2. It lived up to the hype, so I hear.

    Also, we will be doing another insig. series. Just… not for a few weeks. Busy times, you know. We will have a brainstorming post up before anything happens.
