This is perhaps the biggest home game of the season so far, as #5 Illinois comes into the Boiler Box to face our hungry Purdue Volleyball team. Purdue has yet to defeat a team ranked higher than them, and this is their chance to enter the Top 10 for the first time this season.
The game will begin at 8 pm Eastern Time on BTN. I will be yelling my heart out in the Block Party tonight, and I plan on not having a voice after the game. Since I do not have a smart phone, I will not be able to contribute to the Open Thread, but I am opening up my twitter (usually private) to the public just for tonight, so if you want to see my thoughts on the game, follow me @juan_way_street.
Also, according to the H&R banner, we now have the best Big Ten Volleyball coverage in the nation. I must say, this honor is Juan of Kind, and it is humbling at the same time. Let's keep it going with a great Open Thread! After the jump, I will have a list of all the cheers for each player that are chanted before a player serves and after she gets a point.
