    Pete Hanson, Ohio State head coach

    Pepperdine is a great volleyball team. They played well. They deserve to win. I liked the way we played tonight. We played a good match, games two and three. Pepperdine is a quality team.

    About the final

    It will be a great match. It will come down to who can impose their will on the other team. Pepperdine will have to find a way to handle UCLA's jump serve. It will be a toss up.

    About not having a big run

    Pepperdine did not allow a big run. It's tough to string points against them. Pepperdine had only 8 spike errors. They didn't make many errors. They're solid. They always have their go-to guy to hit where the other team can't return. That's the quality of a four-time All-American.

    On putting themselves in a hole in Game #1

    Nerves. We have nobody who has been here the past four years. They're the #1 team in the country. People penciled in the teams for the finals. That's motivation for our guys to play hard to disprove that.

    OSU Senior Scott Spurlock On Rooney

    He doesn't make errors. Sean gets up and hits above the block and attack the weakness of the blocker.

    Marv Dunphy, Pepperdine head coach Talking about UCLA

    We know each other well. We will try to do things that maximize our strengths.

    Both of our teams are different, and they evolved.

    We have won some close matches, and that says a lot about who we are and where we are.

    Talking about early this season

    I was not sure about how good we were Hulse had not played much, Sean Rooney had knee surgery last year, John Mayer had switched positions (from setter to opposite) and we had a freshman setter. It was like taking the outfield and moving it to the infield.

    I think it is hard to change mechanics and behavior, and these guys did it.

    About Rooney's serve

    He was average in serving. Now he is hitting, and hitting with some heat.

    Jonathan Winder, Pepperdine freshman setter

    We're pretty excited for the opportunity to be here. We are where we want to be. Sean Rooney and Andy Hein can pretty much put away anything I put up there. I don't have to work as hard with those two guys in there.

    Talking about UCLA

    They have a lot of guys with a lot experience. They are going to bring it on their home court. Serve receive will be a big issue against the Bruins.

    Sean Rooney, Pepperdine senior outside hitter

    Having been here before will be something we will be ready for.

    Pauley Pavilion is a great place to play. It has a high ceiling and it enables a chance to run down a lot of balls. The more fans the better, whether they are rooting for or against us.

    We will have to receive serve well against UCLA to win.

    Talking about UCLA

    UCLA made Penn State play from behind the entire match. They are a great serving team and can get teams into trouble really quickly.

    Major points towards the Sears Cup (or whatever it's called now).

    The Ohio State sports program is a major force in the NCAA, and will only get stronger:

    Football team is a pre-season favorite to contend for the national title.
    Women's basketball makes it to the Sweet Sixteen.
    Men's basketball would've qualified for the NCAAs, and should be a conference power this season.
    Men's volleyball team makes it to the Final Four.
    Men's hockey team goes deep into the post-season playoffs.
  5. men lacrosse is defending conference champions (not so hot this year)

    you can thank geiger for all this. hes a great man, who takes a bad wrap, but hes done a great job.

    Men's volleyball: Buckeyes are finding talent closer to home

    Thursday, April 24, 2008 3:33 AM
    By Jeremy McLaughlin


    Coach Pete Hanson kept his vehicle's odometer spinning as he traveled the Midwest and Northeast recruiting players for the Ohio State men's volleyball team. Hanson scoured areas such as Milwaukee, Chicago and Buffalo for talent in the 1980s and '90s, when boys volleyball in Ohio was nearly nonexistent. Good thing gas prices were cheap back then.
    Those players turned the Buckeyes into a national power, which is why Hanson still recruits those places today, but not as frequently as he once did. Interest in boys volleyball in Ohio has been steadily rising. More teams are competing. The talent pool is deepening.

  7. ORD_Buckeye

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Ohio State headed to NCAA Final Four in Irvine, California following an epic beatdown, sweep of Ball State last night. Nice to see that we can convincingly crush the hopes, dreams and delusions of pesky out-of-state MAC schools as easily as we deal with our own Fredo schools.

    ESPN 2 carrying the match

    Bucks down 21-16 as we speak on ESPN2. PSU is performing well but we are holding our own. My uncle has is a ref for this sport (so is my aunt) and he raves about PSU this year.

    PSU then dominates to go up to 29-17. OSU makes a short rally but loses game one 30-21. Had they played the whole latter part of the match like the last 6 points they could have been in it - but give credit for PSU for firing on all phases: blocking, passing, spiking, serving. PSU also has 2 extremely tall guys that are good.

    Bucks rotate the line-up and open up game two up 6-3 despite a couple unforced errors. PSU takes a TO. PSU fights back to 13-13 tie, OSU has run into the net 2x. A couple service errors by both, tight game, OSU has never trailed now leading 21-18. PSU not as dialed in as the first game, OSU up 26-20. Our boys should win this game. One bad pass by OSU and PSU takes all the mo. OSU takes two TO's in this stretch, the second one at 26 OSU -25 PSU. PSU service error provides the impetus for OSU to recapture some mo: 29 -26. Bucks win game 2! 30-26

    Game 3 starts evenly in plays and mistakes, Bucks up 6-5. PSU starting to do things well but have many service errors. PSU up 10-8. It is feeling like game one, PSU just needs to dial in the serves and might make a run; their kills have been very impressive. But OSU sticking around 13-13. PSU getting tall at the net and now up 24-18. TO OSU. PSU runs away 30-22, up 2-1. They were too much at the net with both blocks and kills.

    Game 4 starts relatively evenly but PSU is riding a wave of confidence after winning the pivital game 3. They are cruising 17-8 over our boys right now. Same 21 -10. Our guys are trying hard, but it seems like everyone in the building knows PSU is going to win. PSU is out executing OSU. 23-13. 26-14. 29-16. 30-17. PSU wins the match 3-1.

    Matt Anderson is the man of the match. 30 kills. Congrats to our Buckeyes for making it this far. PSU was just the better team (and the 1st number ever not from the west - a fact you couldn't ignore during the broadcast.)
