Ole Miss volleyball head coach Joe Getzin talked to local media Monday afternoon at the Manning Center.

Opening statement...
“We had a rough weekend. On Friday night, we jumped out to a 2-0 lead on Georgia, but we just couldn’t match the intensity that they brought back in the last three games. Unfortunately, a little bit of that is youth. That excuse doesn’t really fly with us anymore. We just didn’t match the intensity that they brought. Some of that is they’ve won a lot of games coming from behind. We just kind of settled into a routine and thought they would continue to not play well. We addressed that and moved on. On Sunday we played No. 17 Kentucky, a very balanced team. While we lost in three sets, I thought we had a very solid effort from our team. We just came up a little bit short there. Small and little things are separating us from the top half of the league. We just have to continue to work on those little things. This week we move on to Alabama, a very solid team. Then we have Auburn before finishing up at home against LSU on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.”
 
On takeaways from the Kentucky loss...
“One, we can be competitive with a top team. Two, while we did some really good things, we’ve got to continue to improve on little things. Those are hard lessons to learn when you’re young. You have to continue to push even though you’re doing good things. There’s still more out there. That’s the difference between winning and losing at that highest level.”
 
On the difference between the first two sets and last two sets against Georgia...
“We were obviously in great spirits coming into the break against Georgia. We also knew Georgia didn’t play very well and that they were capable of playing better. We tried to settle them down a little bit and keep them focused on the things that worked well for us that we were going to have to do again. Unfortunately we came out of the gate and had some serve-receive errors and that changed the whole mindset. The other thing that Georgia is good at, and we talked about this going into the match, is they’re a scrappy team. They’ll stick out an arm and the ball comes up perfectly. Our kids got really frustrated by that. Where we would hit it to that same spot again because they won’t do the same thing. Instead of doing that, we would change our shots up and make errors. We just made too many errors going forward.”
