    Passing is the biggest problem but it's not one thing. These last 4 matches they have been bad in a lot of phases of the game.

    1. Passing; libero play has struggled, and Gardini has really...

    Mostly it just creates more noise than probably other situations. But there are less high school players total, so that probably reduces noise. It's still correlated with player success at the next...

    I should note that both Akana and Baldwin were top 50 recruits (what's called the Fab 50, https://volleyballmag.com/boys-fab-50-060818/ ). So it's not like Akana was some obscure recruit. That said,...

    Just a few observations from the match:

    1. Gardini is a super fun player to watch. He just does so many things really well. I'm probably overly impressed, but outside of DeFalco I'm not sure there...

    That's got to be what they are thinking in term of his development? I watched his recruiting video, and clearly he was a very good high school player. But, at his size, you have to be super explosive...

    So my main thought from the match is that this team has a pretty high ceiling. I think it's quite a bit higher than last year's ceiling. On the other hand, I think there is quite a bit of uncertainty...

    I think that's basically right, although I would probably define it in terms of offensive options lost:

    In system: pass is good enough that the setter can set any of his offensive options. In the...

    I believe it's 4.5 scholarships, and roster size for BYU is usually around 20.

    Here are my guesses:

    1. The limited number of scholarships helps BYU here. Whoever you play for you're likely to get a partial (likely 1/2 or less). BYU's going to be cheaper than any of the other...

    Well, I think I addressed this in my post at least some -> the big potential delta versus last year is Gardini relative to Sander. Hendrickson and Cyrus both were passers last year by the end of the...

    Yep, you've always been able to expose RJP on the serve receive, but Stanford was able to get both Stetler and Martingdale too.



    Yep, that was odd. So much swinging low into the block even when...

    Also, AA teams should be out tomorrow. Here is what I'm thinking happens:

    Second Team

    But I kind of think one of the two will be first, but I'm not sure which one.
