    If the initial pass on serve receive is placed well the team will be in system. The setter shouldn't have to move much to receive the pass. Ideally the pass is maybe a half a meter to a meter off the...

    Let me add, a few more thoughts. This was an elite team. And they developed well over the season; I think this was the Olmstead crew's best coaching job. So I guess I take back what I said earlier. I...

    By passing, I mean the first contact. If BYU improves its passing, then the setter will get the pass in better position and the sets will almost certainly be better. I think BYU will be a better...

    I don't think I agree. BYU is very good up the middle, and very tall. UCLA and BYU have basically the same sized middles. Nobody can stop Gyimah as a middle attacker (UCLA's best middle). He touches...

    It's dreadful. I don't generally like comic book movies so you can probably safely ignore my assessment. That said, there is variation in how much I like them. I roughly group them into three tiers:...

    Cost considerations. Men's volleyball is not exactly a cash cow. King (Tennessee) is like 350 miles from Columbus. So Ohio St. hosts a play in this year. I don't see it as a big deal; The King v. OSU...

    It's not irrelevant. I think you have to favor UCLA when they play in the semi-finals of the ncaa tournament because UCLA is at home.

    Yeah, quality wise they are very similar. This may be equivalent to what you said but my view of it was BYU's serving pressure was just more consistent than UCLA which lead to BYU getting more runs....

    I still generally think the big picture takeaways are probably fine. I just wouldn't push the numbers too much. I suspect it's overall kind of a weird sample of economists (not just because of a...

    I would be worried about a selection bias in the data caused by Lott. His response rate isn't terrible, but I think at best you can say is that he's a polarizing guy and that reputation is likely to...
