2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

I think the FIVB would really like to raise the profile of the VNL to take the prestige factor up a notch from what the Grand Prix was. They hired one of the leading US sports management company to consult with and it shows minus the stats. If they get 3 really competitive years out of four I think they will have done well. Plus rotating it through the countries is genius. One year the US will host and it won't be in Nebraska but Las Vegas, LA, or Miami. The need to grow the fan base in the US a...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors & Discussion

Taylor Agost, a recent University of Oregon grad, has indicated that she will be playing in Europe next season. She is 6'2' with athleticism similar to Bricio and beauty like the Tapp sisters. She played both MB and OH for Oregon but her future is clearly as an OH. She was named an NCAA all-American honorable mention. She came late to volleyball so she has a huge upside for growth. I think she would be well suited to the French or German leagues. Early rumors had her headed to Le Cannet. Here's ...

2018 / 2019 Transfer Rumors & Discussion

Bricio was solid in all phases during the Scudetto playoffs and through the later part of the CL right up to the semi's against VAkif when Imoco was still only one great play by Zhu from what would have ended up winning the CL gold. Bricio's biggest problem is consistency. She can vary dramatically between bad and sensational. I think she is going to have a stellar season in Turkey. She's a good combination of size and athleticism and was the best NCAA player her senior year.

2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

Big week coming up for the USA with Russia, Brazil, and China. With the US not in the "develop the pipe line mode" they will want to win all three of these matches but especially Brazil which is playing its A team. Hill and Larson will probably start two out of the three matches. At OP we will see if Drews takes over the #1 spot from Murphy. Foluke remains the #1 MB'er but the #2 spot seems up for grabs between the other three with Gibby being the blocking leader. Expect no change with Robinson ...

If this goes 5 I think Imoco wins. Too big a load for Zhu to carry with a tweaked ankle.

CEV Champions League 2018

If they sub Krob for Zhu on defense, Zhu is at lisk to have that ankle really tighten up. You can see she is clearly favoring it as she isn't moving with her normal quickness. Vakif probably wants to close out the match this set.

Krob solid on defense not so great on attack. This match could get interesting if Zhu is really hobbled.

Turkey - Sultanlar Ligi - 2018/2019

KRob seems to be perfect for Vakif. She quickly melded into the team and clearly has a good connection with her team mates. She seems content with her limited playing time. Guidetti appears to like her. She has a versatile skill set. But best of all she is the current social media queen of Club volleyball and she also is a big evangelist for Istanbul and touristy Turkey. She has the personality to be a marketing figure in Istanbul and the exposure playing for Vakif and the USNT is serving her we...

Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

I'm sure Woloz will be taking Hill out for dinner based on the quality of her passes. Even Bricio was solid today. Too bad about Foli, she was the extra sauce that gave Imoco a chance against Vakif. I hope they are competitive and play a perfect match.
