OK, time to start getting excited. I recommend rewatching the 2013 Semi-Final match against Washington. Followed by the 2009 3rd, 4th and 5th games against Texas. Followed by the movie "Local Hero" (which has nothing to do with volleyball, but I like alot). Of course, given that there are only 2 hours and 16 minutes until first serve in Penn State - Missouri match, some of that may have to wait. Do as much as you can.
