Everyone should understand that larson is the captain of the team and a captain should always be in court (as far as i remember the rules-not all the time). And that makes it hard for kiraly or making wrong decision.
I bet 80-90% or even 100% karch will bring the VETERANS for Olympic. And even though i don't agree but my instinct says otherwise. With covid, no NT tournament, limited practice. Does it make sense that he will just instead bring the veterans who know each other, play each other in big tournaments and do some little adjustment there?
JT/Washington/Ogbogu are ALL doing well in club team but just like what we observe with robinson and to be fair with her. we haven't actually see them play against big team in NT tournament!
Her is what my guess
OH:Larson(captain), Hill, MBH
MB:Foluke, Adams, Dixon
Setter: Hancock, Carlini
Libero: JWO, Robinson(oh/libero)
Karch will use robinson as OH against Argentina, Russia and maybe Turkey (this is for the sense of agreement that she will play libero against china, italy, russia/turkey)
For sure lot of fans will question and will be mad at him but this is not impossible to happen.
Sorry, what? That's not the captain's role. I agree with the rest of your statements (although I'm not sure if Robinson's designation can change from match to match)
