Title: Volleyball
Post by: jtksu on October 05, 2011, 07:30:28 PM
Ladycats are tied @21 in the first set with ISU.  Frank and family are in attendance.  Game is on Cox 22 if you are so inclined.  Figure this will kill some time before American Horror Story premieres.

Pancake's only a tiny bit different than other digs.  I've watched a ton of v-ball and don't recall ever seeing a kick save.  Hell, I dated a v-ball player for over a year and didn't know that.  Seems like people would do that more often.

I sincerely hope you aren't referring to Suzie, because in your long posting history of talking out of your ass this would be the absolute worst.  Since she's been the head coach no conference school has more aces.  K-State has been 1st in the conferences for # of aces four times since she took over and has never been lower than fifth.

yes we were 5th this year.  Clearly you haven't watched or listen to many games.  When you let Mizzou and KU back into matches because of services errors there is a serious issues.
 Also we have no players in the top 10 of services aces.

Their best win against SECaggie was due to bringing that ratio back to a positive level

Her philosophy is that you aren't hitting hard enough if you aren't making errors.  Trying to run a razor thing margin like that is ok when you have superior talent and players on horse roids like NU, Penn St, UT.  K-State needs to get the ball in play when possible to prevent rally killing points from being given away.

I completely disagree with that.  If you think you have inferior talent, I am not saying Suzie ascribes to this line of thinking just using your talking point, you don't want to be lobbing serves over the net and let your opponent, who gets the first swing on a serve receive, tee off on you.  If your opponent has better hitters the last thing you want to do is get into a swinging match with them, you have to win points other ways, hence you having inferior hitters.  The point of aggressive serving isn't necessarily to get aces but to disrupt the offense of the receiving team.

You said she "can't teach serving for crap.". She has no problem "teaching serving" whatever that means you are opposed to her philosophy, that doesn't mean she can't teach serving.  I understand it can be frustrating to watch so many serves careen into the net, but her philosophy serves a purpose whether you agree with it or not.

you do bring up a valid point with the attempted Ace in favor of allowing a team with superior talent to setup their return play.  You don't want to give away service, that is 100% correct.  However there is a difference between aggressive service and having an acceptable number of services errors.  You should strive to limit returns and errors, not say that errors are a factor of being overly aggressive.  Good point though, I'll watch for that more in the future.

How did K-State get to bring their band? More cheerleaders than NU? Plus a yell-leader?

Nebraska had trouble passing all night and they were out of position. If you have those two issues, it doesn't matter how great of hitters you have since you can't get them the ball.

I'm about to have a rough ridin' heart attack.  It was a backhanded complement, but a complement none the less from a husker.  :sdeek:

I agree with you knapp. This team has been out of whack since the whole Lauren thing. KSU played great, and I won't take anything away from them, but this has been a different team the last month.

9-6 them, they are just quicker tonight.
Let's take those N's and put them right underneath their chins - preferably before they are 15 yards down field.

Let me be the first to state the obvious: what an effing monumental disaster.

The team was ranked in the top three for most of the season, then the coach's little princess ran somebody over with her car, and the season went down the sh!tter.

I have to be honest with you, I'm not going to miss Coach Cook's annual chokes in the tournament when he finally leaves.  The team should have been in the Final Four for sure.

Massive freaking choke.  In my opinion, Coach's Little Princess should take her hit and run action elsewhere.

The coaches daughter hit a motorcyclist on the side of the road and broke his leg. She was driving with a suspended license and left the scene and was only suspended two games. I heard shes dating Taylor Martinez.

I only really pay attention to the K-State V-Ball team, so I was "surprised"  while doing a little reading out there on that Internet to discover that the Cornhole V-Ball coach is quite possibly kind of a douche.

Am I correct in that assessment?

Does Cornhole roid up their V-ball players as well?

yeah their coach is a d-bag.  Tried to start a fight with U of Washington's coach who use to be our coach (Jim McLaughlin), because of a controversial call.

Volleyball matches are amazing.  If you are a student I'd recommend sitting in the Purple Pit for a few matches get close to appreciate the speed the game is being played.  Even blowouts are fun matches to attend, volleyball is also very underrated when it comes to crap talking opportunities if that's your thing.

That's undefeated AND ranked.  South Carolina's volleyball team is 13-0 & they've only lost 6 sets all season thus far.  That's 39 sets won and only 6 lost.  Not only are they not ranked, but they aren't receiving any votes.  Volleyball has stupid crap like this often, I'm sure many of the voters are completely unaware that USC is undefeated.

I come home from Pak'n with some elites, fire up the HD DVR and was subjected to that  :barf: Terrible defense, no creativity on offense mainly due to the awful passing, looked a step slow, poor officiating, & the worst part about it was listening to the rough ridin' moron OU TV guys who didn't know crap about volleyball, & despite it being in HD the production of the broadcast was an abortion to sport (Currie, Learfield, FSKC IDGAF get your crap together).  They had two.different interviews during the broadcast one with Andrew Fitzgerald and another with Kenny Stills (sidebar, is every athlete at OU some kind of human mutation, eff they all resemble something you'd see in a haunted house) in both of these interviews they completely ignored the play on the court missing multiple points showing these rough ridin' thriller extras.

well instead of waiting for SD to respond (probably abusing himself right now) I have to say I was very impressed with the hitting, particularly the swing hit setups.  Setting has been fan-freaking-tastic.  Team looks much more atheltic/fit this year.  Blocking was pretty damn good.  Loved Donaghue's touches over the lazy block off the fake sets, I think 2 worked, 1 bearly out.

well instead of waiting for SD to respond (probably abusing himself right now) I have to say I was very impressed with the hitting, particularly the swing hit setups.  Setting has been fan-freaking-tastic.  Team looks much more atheltic/fit this year.  Blocking was pretty damn good.  Loved Donaghue's touches over the lazy block off the fake sets, I think 2 worked, 1 bearly out.

with all due respect, stop.  Keep going to matches though.

Next week is the biggest week of regular season matches in Kansas State Volleyball history, hope there's huge crowds at Ahearn.  And yes WVU sucks, easily the worst team in the conference.

info for comparo

2012 numbers/2011 season ending numbers

Hit % 272 /218
Assists 13.39/12.63
Op Hit % 153/207
Block 281/243
Kills 14.14/13.53
Dig 14.33/15.28

and aces are up.  So yeah I see this team, even though there are a lot of the same faces, as being much better so far.  Now legit issues can be asked about competition level.

Anyone know where I can find service errors?  I don't see them in the big 12 stats.

Attendance through eight games.

Average: 1626
High: UC Irvine (2715)
Low: Oakland (989)

Last year's average attendance was 1520 for 13 games, ranking 24th in the nation.  On last year's list, 1626 would put us at 22, but I think attendance usually gets a bump during the conference schedule.

yeah I was discussing the hitting in relation to passing with my GF who has a higher vbiq than me.  She did note that there were many passes which left Donahue searching for any kind of a way to get it to a hitter. 

But the hitting when good sets were in place were unimaginative and predictable.  There were honestly series in the 2nd and 4th sets where KU could have had one player on the court to dig the hit.  Same spot, just awful.

Did you see Donahue's great backwards tip set in the 2nd?  Pure genius. 

I really don't know how Porubek is seeing all that much time.  Very lazy play from here tonight.  Poor footwork getting to places, reaching way too much, poor service.

Some of that KU defense is attributable to scouting.  Bechard is Fritz's mentor, he's well aware of what we run because he taught her.  They have always played us tough relative to their inferior talent.  The defense, if played well can force hitters to hit at certain spots at that point its up to one or two back row players, depending on where you're attempting to force outside hitters to defend that place, somedays are better than others.  I haven't seen KU outside ood our match to know how they are defending but I'm guessing that they are aggressively blocking line while fanning the other front row player wide & short leaving 2 back row players to defend a lot of court playing the angle off of the middle blocker.

The best way to beat this defense is to feed the middle quicks so that the blockers have to hesitate when going outside.  When your passing is trash your hitting is predictable and blockers can force you to hit to the middle of the floor.

BTW Lila is our second best hitter, I love her one of my favorite players ever.  Her issue isn't laziness its frankly her fitness or lack thereof.

currently in meltdown mode about Fritz.  Same crap different match.  Absolutely horrid game plan going into this match up.  KU knew exactly where all our hitters were going, I swear I could put a X on the court and the vast majority of hits would be on it.  (x would not be the entire court :dubious:) I have to also believe the number of tip overs instead of hits had to be game plan related. No way were all those the result of adjustments to poor service (which Donahue very rarely does anyway).

Stepping back from the keyboard for a bit has let me consider somethings, just like last season, still don't think Fritz is right.

Hitting is atrocious.  I really should find some way to review footage, but last night and all the other games I've been to let me believe that they are trained to hit to a location on the court way too much.  When KU is able to position one player to dig a lot of hits with multiple rotations, the proof is there.  Our hitters are dynamic and athletic enough to do something else, save Porubek who require a perfect set to get a decent hit and than it is going to the same spot almost every time.

Too many of last nights failures rest on Fritz's game plan.  There is no way the number of tip overs while in hitting position wasn't game plan related.  It caught KU a few times, but more often than not, they had the short play covered behind the block.  Another game plan issue or game prep issue was the block.  Absolutely horrid last night.  They were constantly biting on the fake to one hitter only to have it go to a secondary hitter who was in better position. The block was CONSTANTLY off on timing.  That level of failure at this level of play has to be game planning, thinking KU was playing fast to first hitters.  Not only that there were so many opportuntiies for in game adjustment here.  We had too many net calls from poor positioning and way too many KU rallies which were not stemmed by timeouts.  I can think of one time we scored coming out of the time out, the rest of the time out were slight interruptions to KU's charge.

I've played and coached volleyball for 20 years.  If I could #humblebrag for a second I have had personal coaching instruction from Dr. Carl McGown, Dr. Doug Beal, Dr. Marv Dunphy, Jim McLaughlin and Hugh McCutcheon.  This is absurd.  It's opinion so I can't say you're wrong but the flawed logic is completely off the reservation.  It's VLVBIQ dressed up as something else.  I explained this after your last meltdown, either you didn't read it or didn't understand it.  You are completely barking up the wrong tree here.

Your point about passing was valid once again.  They were consistently giving Donahue crap to work with.  Yet we had the MOST tip overs in our KU match compared to the rest of the season.  It was so painfully obvious that this was a game plan decision and not targets of opportunity.  When taking actual hits instead of tips, k-state was consistently slow to hit, often times going to the exact opposite of setting middle, instead opting for outside cross shots which were only targeted to one spot on the court.  That is why KU was able to cover the entire back half of the court with 2 freaking players.  When spray and pray Porubek is able to find the court by hitting down line and no one else consistently tries, there is an issue.  Their down line coverage wasn't there for the majority of the night.  They knew they could tuck in tight and block down and leave obvious lanes open because we will only hit to a few spots on the court.  There was no attempt to keep them honest by going line, aside from a few times Porubek diverted from the game plan.  I will say that, and I believe it was in the 3rd set, they did attempt to hit line off broken plays and KU did a great job of moving their block over forcing us into errors/hits OOB, but it was completely abandoned otherwise.  Now I do agree that passing is killing our offense, forcing Donahue to come up with some absolute miracle sets in order to have some sort of play.  Bad passing is square one forcing us to do certain things.  But I also believe from a game plan standpoint middle hitting is not a priority from watching where good sets are going.  Some of that might be due to passing, some of it might be due to risk/reward analysis in the face of bad passing, but a lot of it seems to be directed action (Porubek being set 3 times in a row for the same hit every time). 

I would also love to hear something about our block.  We were constantly sending 2 and 3 players up with little to no timing, biting on first action when it was painfully obvious KU was using a feint action designed to confuse the block.  When 3 girls are consistently going  up they should be able to get a piece, they consistently were not.  I don't know if we're not athletic or hvbiq enough to run the swing block they way it needs to be done, but it isn't work at all when inferior team are having a field day with the defense. 

And if you were really trained by Mclaughlin I don't see how you can agree with Fritz's service philosophy either.  Telling people that errors are acceptable is not okay.

Post by: MakeItRain on November 09, 2012, 12:03:44 AM
I'll take this backwards first.  Who I received training by has no bearing as to whether or not I agree with Fritz's serving philosophy.  That's like saying since Bob Stoops coached with LHC Bill Snyder he should stand up his tight end.  If I coached high level college volleyball I think I would serve aggressively for the simple reason that since sideout scoring was eliminated a point is scored on every serve.  If you allow high level teams to essentially receive a free ball you will get killed.  I'm not sure why you see this is an issue, no matter what your serving philosophy is you're going to have serving errors, part of the game.  I could understand the angst if her team's were near the bottom of the league in serving, fact is traditionally her team's have been near the top of the league in serving.  Look it up, you'll see, maybe if you find it for yourself you will have an easier time accepting this and drop this gripe.

Now as to the body of what you're talking about, you kind of answered your own question.  If they aren't passing they aren't hitting.  Also everyone defends with two in the back.  You may have one rotation where you can play three back.  Now did Fritz or Grove see something in the video to let them know that the tip was there at certain times, maybe, sure, I guess.  However, if they did you as a player have to execute.  Whether the defense knows its coming or not a well executed tip, like a bunt in baseball, is impossible to defend.  This is the same with finding the right spots when you swing.  You as a hitter need to find the places to hit but you can't tip the swing with your shoulders too early.  I have no idea what happened last night, I'd need to see the coaches film to see what went wrong, although it is pretty easy watching the broadcast to delineate that KU is better than I'd this year.  In summary to this point, you cannot blame Fritz for her game plan, it just doesn't work in volleyball.  Game planning is a really small part of developing a great team, your system is much more important.  If you're going to freak out with every loss you should be effusive with every win.  It's not like football where the preparation and lead up can win or lose you a game if the team's are equal.  College volleyball coaches are hired to get the best players to run their system, not gameplan.

The blocking is similar.  It isn't a matter of "what's wrong with the blocking" its what happened with that block.  We are a good blocking team, 3rd in the conference since conference play started.  If they had a bad night again I'd have to see why this block was slow, or why that block floated.  We don't have a problem with blocking though, the numbers bear that out.  Sometimes you have a bad night.

currently in meltdown mode about Fritz.  Same crap different match.  Absolutely horrid game plan going into this match up.  KU knew exactly where all our hitters were going, I swear I could put a X on the court and the vast majority of hits would be on it.  (x would not be the entire court :dubious:) I have to also believe the number of tip overs instead of hits had to be game plan related. No way were all those the result of adjustments to poor service (which Donahue very rarely does anyway).

jesus christ, guy

Stepping back from the keyboard for a bit has let me consider somethings, just like last season, still don't think Fritz is right.

Hitting is atrocious.  I really should find some way to review footage, but last night and all the other games I've been to let me believe that they are trained to hit to a location on the court way too much.  When KU is able to position one player to dig a lot of hits with multiple rotations, the proof is there.  Our hitters are dynamic and athletic enough to do something else, save Porubek who require a perfect set to get a decent hit and than it is going to the same spot almost every time.

Too many of last nights failures rest on Fritz's game plan.  There is no way the number of tip overs while in hitting position wasn't game plan related.  It caught KU a few times, but more often than not, they had the short play covered behind the block.  Another game plan issue or game prep issue was the block.  Absolutely horrid last night.  They were constantly biting on the fake to one hitter only to have it go to a secondary hitter who was in better position. The block was CONSTANTLY off on timing.  That level of failure at this level of play has to be game planning, thinking KU was playing fast to first hitters.  Not only that there were so many opportuntiies for in game adjustment here.  We had too many net calls from poor positioning and way too many KU rallies which were not stemmed by timeouts.  I can think of one time we scored coming out of the time out, the rest of the time out were slight interruptions to KU's charge.

I've played and coached volleyball for 20 years.  If I could #humblebrag for a second I have had personal coaching instruction from Dr. Carl McGown, Dr. Doug Beal, Dr. Marv Dunphy, Jim McLaughlin and Hugh McCutcheon.  This is absurd.  It's opinion so I can't say you're wrong but the flawed logic is completely off the reservation.  It's VLVBIQ dressed up as something else.  I explained this after your last meltdown, either you didn't read it or didn't understand it.  You are completely barking up the wrong tree here.

LOL no.  If she has hit her ceiling its a pretty high ceiling.  The NCAA tournament 9 out of 12 years is good for any sport, its great for a non-revenue sport at K-State.  We've been top 25 in attendance most years, if not every single year she's been here.  I don't possibly know how anyone would expect better and know you'd get it by replacing the coach.

Also the Big 12 for the last decade has been at worst the third best conference in any given year, some times first, some times second.  This year we have 3 top 16 teams, including Kansas for the first time.  Trading Nebraska, Colorado, Mizzou, and A&M for TCU and WVU hurt, a lot.  As Nebraska and A&M are power programs, both top 16 this season, and Mizzou and Colorado have had decent successes; TCU and WVU are horrendous programs.

Side note K-State has had unreal luck with the last three volleyball coaches, Jim Moore, Jim McLaughlin, and Suzie Fritz are all phenomenal coaches.  Moore & McLaughlin have had great success after they left K-State for bigger budget programs.

In non revenue sports if you want national titles and conference championships you have to spend accordingly.  Are you proposing that K-State utilize the resources that Nebraska, Florida, Texas, UT, etc. has?  You look at DOE equity reports, certainly you are aware of the correlation of Olympic sports spending and success.  There's no coach em up DITRs in womens sports, I cant recall even once in volleyball & WBB where the best talent didnt win.

If you fire coaches that make the tournament 9 out of 12 years, consistently be in the top 25 in attendance, win a conference title every decade or so, and have a top 20 program your're more likely to find someone who will fall on their face than someone who will duplicate that.

If you're unhappy with the direction of the program I'd suggest you pony up the cash to level the playing field and make this job more attractive to one of the other top 20 coaches, other than the one we have.

Fantastic troll though

By local media I'm going to assume you mean oscar Haertl.  I give him credit for being the only local guy who even attempts to talk volleyball, although his interest is more about WSU homerism.  That being said he doesn't anything about volleyball at all.  WSU was on the bubble, but fairly strong on the right side.  Their RPI was 40, thats pretty safe in volleyball because many conference don't have post season tournaments so there isn't bid stealing like in basketball.  The selection committee uses RPI heavily in volleyball & are pretty open about it.

20-23 terrible blocking working inside to out on an outside hitter coming far from the side.  ball is only going out to the side.
20-24 hit right into block because our outside hitter only go to one spot on the court.  Line was open by a full blocker width.

Sorry I'm a bit distracted.

In your previous post you put a lot of effort in explaining to Dax the level of success Fritz has had.  I'm not going to get into top tier WVB teams because the parity systems in any women's sports are so out of whack.  I think to be a solid second tier team that collects a conference champ every 5 to 8 years or so requires less than you expect.  I'm honestly not sure what other teams have that we don't to preface my points.  We now have a dedicated facility, although its not glitzy does have some good attributes. I don't know what access the WVB team has to various training facilities.  I'll assume they have the run of Ahearn?  That seems like a fair enough foundation for a good second tier team.   I would say there is a significant amount of coaching up players to make wins.  I think your explanation of why KU is able to give us stiff competition and in this year dominate us, twice, shows this talking point is weak.  Now I will grant that you can't coach em up into league titles yearly or compete with the PSUs of the WVB world consistently.  Are we than talking about coach pay to retain or get the best coaches?  Maybe you could speak to the pay scales here.  I would suspect there is a significant gap between the first tier teams and the second tier teams.  I don't know where Fritz's pay would fit into that hierarchy. 

Anyways, just some thoughts.  As you put it, a fine mercy killing for this season.

I'll address dax' post first since it appears once again to be a troll, because frankly you are smarter than this.  It is painfully obvious that you haven't seen any of the facilities you are touting.  Did you seriously list a scoreboard that is more limited than some high school boards and some purple paint on red benches as improvements that should help the program?  Stupid and you know it.  That dressing room upgrade improved dressing rooms that were 50 years old.  I've seen our facility and others.  Instead of assuming that we have a "very fine facility" I'll tell you firsthand that we have an okay facility.  Ahearn is good simply because of the fans and they are there because we've won consistently for 15 years.

Even if we had amazing facilities that has no correlation to on field results and you know that, absurd for you to attempt to.

Edn, there isn't a second tier program that wins the conference every 5-8 years, those are top programs.  If you know of a second tier program in volleyball, let me know.  I can't think of one in basketball either.  We are firmly in the second tier.  We have been a top 20 team for 15 years.

Money is important for not only head coaches salaries, but for assistant salaries and most importantly recruiting.  Our budget is okay, we are absolutely out performing our peers in this regard.

I have no idea what you meant by your KU point.  They beat us this year because they are better.  I don't know what that has to do with the state of the program.  Their coach, Ray Bechard, has been at KU for 15 years and this is literally the first season hes been better than KSU.  You'll have to explain that analogy to me.  Are you proposing we strive to their lack of long term success?

Like I said before, why would you not only fire but even consider firing someone who has consistently out performed her peers.  She's fourth in the history of the conference in wins, the program is third in conference history in wins.  How confident are you that someone could match that?

As far as today goes, I'd love to know what is going on behind the scenes, that completely turned this season around.  We looked like final four contenders, now they are as bad as I've seen a K-State team ever.  Suzie said earlier in the week that some players had some personal stuff, I know of one, but certainly it isn't causing this, I don't think.  Anyway I'm glad this season is over so we can move on to spring ball & next season.  Can't believe we're at this point.

Excuses, excuses . . . just part of the K-State "we're just happy to be here" culture . . . and I've paid plenty of attention and I know that Ahearn is very near, or on par with a number of top volleyball facilities, and no, I don't count schools that play inside their basketball arena.  Penn State has a decent volleyball gym, but it was built in 1928 and they share it with four other sports.   It's not that much better than Ahearn on any level. 

It's just good old K-State, never win anything significant and give it a good try and most K-Staters are perfectly happy.

Run out of the gym by not even receiving AVCA votes Northern Iowa is pathetic.

The bottom line is this, significant effort has been made over the years to keep K-State Volleyball up to speed with quality facilities.   I knew Ahearn prior to volleyball getting all of those improvements backwards and forwards and back again, I spent day after day after day in there.    I believe Volleyball now occupies either the former men's basketball offices or the former AD's offices, which used to be the nicest offices the K-State athletics had, and I believe they've  just recently been remodeled.   Offices that at the time K-State volleyball moved into them, other Volleyball programs would have killed for . . . many of them occupying offices akin to broom closets.    The volleyball dressing room and players lounge is multi-fold times nicer than the old K-State Mens basketball dressing room.  (again, we're talking about Volleyball here, a sport that LOSES money).   Offices, players lounges, dressing rooms, new courts, pay raises, increased budgets etc. etc. etc.

The bottom line is this, significant effort has been made over the years to keep K-State Volleyball up to speed with quality facilities.   I knew Ahearn prior to volleyball getting all of those improvements backwards and forwards and back again, I spent day after day after day in there.    I believe Volleyball now occupies either the former men's basketball offices or the former AD's offices, which used to be the nicest offices the K-State athletics had, and I believe they've  just recently been remodeled.   Offices that at the time K-State volleyball moved into them, other Volleyball programs would have killed for . . . many of them occupying offices akin to broom closets.    The volleyball dressing room and players lounge is multi-fold times nicer than the old K-State Mens basketball dressing room.  (again, we're talking about Volleyball here, a sport that LOSES money).   Offices, players lounges, dressing rooms, new courts, pay raises, increased budgets etc. etc. etc.

Drummed out of the NCAA tourney in the 1st round by Northern Iowa.

You're confusing what I bolded with the rest of your post.  The things you mentioned don't "keep K-State Volleyball up to speed with quality facilities."  They updated the previous horrendous facilities but in no way are they comparable with what one would call quality facilities.  I've said this three times yet you continue to ignore it.  I've seen other college facilities, you haven't even seen ours.  I also enjoy that you continue to ignore the question that I've asked you about the risk of finding someone who will duplicate being the 4th winningest coach (2nd active) in the history of the conference.


there is no excuse for getting run out of the gym by UNI.  that's an embarassment.

Anyone say otherwise?  What did you guys think of UNI before the match started, just wondering?

Don't follow women's volleyball - like most olympic sports - but am happy when KSU is good. 

That said, are we arguing that KSU doesn't have the talent to be relevant in the postseason?  i.e. we need better facilities to recruit better talent? 

I thought Fritz always had good talent, and was consistently taking teams to the NCAAs...

So, forgive me, but why the eff are facilities even relevant to this discussion?

They aren't relevant at all, Dax wanted to bitch so he used some press releases he's read as a basis for an argument that states we have good facilities so we should beat everybody.  It's really rough ridin' stupid but the old man on the barstool is only happy when miserable and will go to any lengths to convince others to join him, up to & including talking out of his ass.

MIR, with the same old crap, I walked through Ahearn (for like the 1000th time) just this last summer right before school started at K-State.   It was completely set up for Volleyball, I walked down through the underneath sections, and then back up through Ahearn Gym and the office areas.

K-State Volleyball moved into the former AD/Men's Basketball Suite, then it was remodeled . . . when they did that, the volleyball program at ku (for example) was stuck in some little broom closet office in the bowels of Allen Fieldhouse, until the last remodeling they did when it moved.

Oregon State Baseball (for example) won 2 National Titles before they even got the brand spanking new baseball stadium, before that, FHSU had a nicer stadium than Oregon State. 

K-State is never going to have the nicest facilities across the board, but they're certainly nice enough. 

Just once it would be nice for a K-State athletic team to step up and go the distance.

Other schools that have much smaller budgets than K-State have stepped up and gone the distance in NCAA athletics MIR . . . nice job in skipping over my point about that.

Hell Stony Brook (For Example) was in the CWS, and until recently their baseball field consisted of a fence, field, scoreboard, and a couple of dugouts.  In FY 2012 K-State had $41 million dollars more athletic revenue then they did, in fact, K-State's private giving alone could have financed their entire athletic department, with $7 million left over.

Long Beach State . . . $14 million dollar athletic budget.   Yeah, yeah, you're gonna remind they're in California.   Look man, I'm not saying Volleyball Final Four every year.

I also take into account that K-State is approaching the $60 million dollar mark in annual athletic budget, and only funds the minimum amount of sports to be a D1 eligible school.   One would think that we could actually make a run at a national title in something.

Northern Iowa . . . $14 million dollar athletic budget and they have to finance football.

At one time, and it may still hold true today.  LSnyder wanted a new practice complex across the street from Vanier with an indoor practice facility, and bridge across Kimball.   If that ever comes to pass, move indoor track to the old football indoor facility, and then renovate Ahearn and put the Volleyball court running the way the basketball court used to run.

Title: Re: Volleyball
Post by: MakeItRain on April 08, 2013, 03:55:34 PM
That would be somewhat better but I think Ahearn is just way too big and cavernous for volleyball no matter the configuration. The only benefit to Ahearn are the practice courts that they use that they used to share with basketball.

Likely since pros can play in Universiade, and the Euros will likely have a lot of pros. I'm guessing Russia is going to be tough. Also worth noting that the USA hasn't sent a women's volleyball team to this since 1997 and this happens every two years.

The biggest benefit of this is that we are allowed to have unlimited practices from the time that spring semester ends until the end of the event. That's nearly two months of practice after spring ball, its a huge advantage. One thing that might work against us when it comes to practice is that the FISU limits the volleyball roster to 12 as opposed to the 15 that are allowed by the NCAA. In addition to this Lilla Porubek and Natali Jones can't play because they are citizens of other countries, Jones has dual citizenship but still not legal to play. I hope that doesn't limit their ability to practice though because, especially in the case of Porubek, they are vital to next seasons success. It will also suck if they can't travel with the team.

Pelger is also playing hurt and got hurt again tonight. I'm unsure of what I think of the setter, she's aggressive at the net which I love but she is having some distribution issues. Tonight we hit about .070 and the setter has to wear that, we also had to tip a lot. I know passing can lead to these issues too so it all can't be laid at the feet of the setter. Brand is a freshman though so I'm happy we'll have her for 3 more years.

Losing Lilla hurts, she was playing very well before she got hurt. Where did you hear that she was out for the season? Kstatesports.com just ran a profile on her yesterday and that wasn't mentioned. Pretty odd to feature her if they think she's done. Sad for her that her college career is over if she in fact isn't returning.

Yes she's a senior, no she won't get a medical redshirt if she's out for the year, she's played 13 matches this season.

Also yes kstatesports reran a big12sports article from a few weeks ago, they put a disclaimer saying so at the beginning of the article. Seems weird that they wouldn't add that she's out for the year with an injury to that addendum.

When its one of your best players, very typical. Add to that the best player isn't 100%. Benches in volleyball aren't used like other sports. Its not at all unusual for a team to only play 8 and two of those won't play front row at all. There is no equivalence in any other team sport for the impact of one player that a volleyball player could have. Porubek is still at this point responsible for 15% of our total kills even though she's only played 13 of 17 matches. Pelger has been responsible for 23% of our kills.

It's not like they have to share their space in ahearn with anyone. money should be spent on a locker room/office upgrade in ahearn.

They have to share Ahearn with Indoor track.

My facilities dream is to see a whole new football practice complex built with a new indoor facility for football and convert the old football indoor facility, to the indoor track.

Pretty mixed on a Volleyball arena out by Bram tho. 

But I like the scenarios, all the non-revenue sports are getting more stuff, and this is likely going to build the case for their relative coaching staffs to perform better.

The only time volleyball has to share with indoor track is when indoor track hosts a meet and that is in the volleyball off season, so there's no team activity then.

A practice facility at Bramlage is really stupid unless Currie plans on moving volleyball to Bramlage, which I suppose is possible after they move some of the AD offices in Bramlage to the Vanier 3.0. And yes if this is happening it puts Suzie on notice. If she does get moved we have a no doubt, slam dunk replacement in Dawn Cady Sullivan. I've talked to people very close to the Iowa State volleyball program who are nervous about losing her to us because they want her as a successor to their current coach.

Dawn is different, if she isn't the next coach at K-State she will be at Iowa State. She is a bonified head coaching candidate; not an analyst or a 27 year old 2nd assistant. Dawn isn't nearly as big of a risk.

Ahearn could be a very good V-Ball Venue, but that would require substantial renovation.   

Move the v-ball court to where the b-ball court used to be and tighten and create a seating bowl around it.   I'm thinking about 5-6,000 seats, and renovated entry lobbies etc. etc.

But we're talking $15 million easy.

Would agree on a lot of that, but if they do think about actually moving vball out to Bramlage and adding the vball training facility, they should also renovate Bramlage (concourse, amenities, suites, etc.) with it and complete that all in one fell swoop (and would probably cost about the same $15 mill overall for the whole deal), would help 3 sports in 1 facility and potentially make any renovations of Ahearn if they make it into an indoor track and field only facility much more minor, but wouldn't know cost-benefit without some good numbers. If we're talking atmosphere though, they should keep it obviously in Ahearn, but if dollars and cents work out a move to the Bram might be worth it.

No we weren't. Even if we were the CWS amounts to the elite 8. The volleyball team has been to three sweet 16s. If this is about program accomplishments it isn't even close, not historically, not currently. Baseball has had more extensive improvements more recently and frankly baseball has the better facility although neither are anything close to elite. Baseball historically hasn't made K-State any more money than volleyball, they don't get to take that mantle because of one pissed away season.

The only real argument for improving baseball facilities before making sensible improvements to the volleyball program can't really go beyond "I like baseball better." That being said if the choice is building a volleyball practice facility at Bramlage or building a whole new baseball stadium, I'd pick the baseball stadium. I'd advocate K-State starting a bull fighting team and building a bull fighting arena before a volleyball practice facility at Bramlage. I'd advocate the athletic department building an American Girl doll store before a volleyball practice facility at Bramlage.

Funnel resources into sports that will make money (i.e football, MENs bball, and baseball). I believe everyone deserves opportunities, but if there is no money to be made, there is no reason to invest. The Toint needs a huge overhaul for various reasons, and V-Ball can wait. ADJC is probably not focused on the well-being and success of volleyball. Dude is King Midas, and all he wants is to make crap look good and make money, but he wont funnel it into some avenue that will suck the fun (money) out of the budget.

This is probably the long term goal. They'll probably convert Ahearn into some museum or some stuff for the Kinesiology Dept. Indoor track will have to bounce over to the Athletic Complex of Doom as well.

Personally I don't think they should move. The only way to get students to go to this stuff is to make it convenient (i.e. keeping it right on campus)

Moving indoor track from Ahearn would require a new building. Bramlage is entirely unsuitable for track, size-wise and otherwise.

I would reluctantly be okay with this. I'm just so over Ahearn and I'm sure we aren't pumping any money into it to make it a viable long term home for K-State volleyball. It is frustrating though that other schools in this conference have turned their old basketball facilities into new volleyball facilities. Even moving the court to the center of Ahearn, moving the metal bleachers from BSFS, and installing a video board would do wonders. I still don't understand the need for a new practice facility when a renovation of the current practice gym at Ahearn is all that is needed.

Baseball needs the improvements first.   VB is perfectly fine in Ahearn.  Get indoor track out of there, and reconfigure the arena area to put the court where the basketball court used to be and make some improvements.   They'll have tons of space to set up about as many practice V-Ball courts as they could possibly want.  In fact, they'll have so much room they could put in at least one all sand court for training.   

The only drawback might be having to work with the academic side like the Department of Kinesiology which occupies Ahearn. 

Baseball can evolve with more suites, more seats etc. etc.   

It will be absurd to spend $8 to $12 million on volleyball unless substantial improvements are made to TFS and the baseball facilities at the same time if not before.  Particularly if baseball is pushed back a month, improving the competitive stature of nearly every D1 school substantially.

What would cost more for a quality structure, volleyball or a new indoor track facility?

Sand play for elite indoor volleyball players is a nono. It's a completely different game and sand lends itself to lots of injuries.

I do agree that baseball changing its schedule changes this conversation because it increases baseball's earning potential.

Who are you? If you are really a Nebraska fan we won't be mean to you if you aren't an idiot, so feel free to change your name. If you're a K-State insider give us more info, specifically about this half cocked practice gym at Bramlage idea.



It is interesting that there is no info about NCAA Sand Volleyball anywhere on a site directly sanctioned by the NCAA but AVCA has some info.

For those haven't been following; we are the second best team the conference, not sure we'll finish there or not, we'll see. We will make the tournament, but even though we're the second best team in the conference our chance of hosting is borderline. The Big 12 rpi is just okay, we will need to finish 14-4 or better in conference to host in the NCAA imo. If we really make a run there is a potential of playing the entire tournament in the Big 12 footprint as there is a regional here in Ames and the final four is in OKC.

17 rpi. I know rpi isn't a great measure of a team in bball, and I don't know if it is of similar or greater worth in vball, but apparently one of the coaches seems to think that finishing in the top 16 rpi gives a good chance of hosting.

KSU played sub-par vs Texas. Much of the credit due to the Longhorns, but even in the second set, which K-State had a good shot at, they really didn't play too terribly well. Bodes well for them, imo.

They are obviously good on the block, and they can play pretty decent transition if need be, but they have a tendency to let things snow-ball when the opposition is in serve. It's mostly a reception problem, but things have improved. They've come a long way since letting a pud Mo. State team and a shorthanded Baylor squad go on long runs at home. Texas got to them, but that's Texas.

Wednesday night will paint a pretty descriptive picture of the team imo. OU is good offensively, and will try to force long rallies defensively. If K-State can regain offensive efficiency and keep rallies short it would be a great sign for them.

Great win tonight, we are firmly the 2nd best team the conference.

The RPI carries a lot more weight in volleyball than basketball, a lot more. The committee doesn't have the luxury of watching nearly as many volleyball matches so the eye test doesn't happen in volleyball, they rely on concrete data.

Like I said a conference record of 12-4 should be good enough to earn the opportunity to host.

Best I've seen from this team all season. Offense was great, but OU is a tremendous offensive team and K-State simply crap them down for much of the match.

Nice strategy of repeatedly making Madison Ward — whose 4.12 kills/ set rank second in the Big 12 during conference play — receive serve. She had eight kills on 34 attempts, with eight attack errors. .000 hitting. Held an OU offense that's hit a Big 12 best .274 in conference play to just .192 as a team.

I would suggest to just start showing up at practices, and then going to games and always sitting directly opposite of the bench and gazing into their eyes. Also screaming really loudly for those little volleyballs that they toss out before the matches. You'll have to move every set though because they switch benches all the time. Gotta keep that eye contact.

If that doesn't work I'd suggest randomly sending flowers to the VB offices and showing up at their apartments with a radio and a well-tuned singing voice.

Hope this helps your friend.

damn dude I don't know.  Its one thing to stay under the radar and keep sawing wood with your program.  But when common K-State0 fans start to get pissed with your performance (for a lot, I think you've noted, losing to KU), I think the leash can be pretty freaking short.

Title: Re: Volleyball
Post by: MakeItRain on October 26, 2014, 05:20:31 PM
They assistants haven't changed for quite a while, since Justin Ingram left to become a head coach at Arkansas State.

Currie is smart enough of an athletic director to evaluate coaches on their own merits. He isn't going to make personnel decisions based on people pissed on a message board because they can't make clever posts to other message board posters. Volleyball, baseball, and wbb coaches have three goals:

win
produce revenue
don't embarrass the school

The more of the second two you do the more latitude you get with the first. Suzy is the winningest coach in the history of the program, by far, and one of the best in the history of the conference. As far as the other stuff goes she has run a model program by any standard. Firing her and trying to find someone else to duplicate what she's done is a huge risk.
Title: Re: Volleyball
Post by: sonofdaxjones on October 26, 2014, 06:11:36 PM
Fritz is in the middle of a five year contract.   Barring extraordinary circumstances Currie is not going to can an Olympic Sport coach in the middle of a 5 year contract, particularly one with a successful overall track record.   

That said, I suspect Fritz is going to have to maintain this level through the remainder of the contract or she risks the "trajectory factor" (not gE'ing) in the Currie decision process (provided he's still around in 2016).   I think that's pretty fair.

Dropped one at Iowa State tonight. They haven't won there since 2007, so not a huge surprise, especially with how they struggled against a similar team in Texas Tech.

A lot of unforced errors after ISU scrapped for longer rallies. Their at Texas on Friday after just a day's rest, so I would expect another loss there. K-State hasn't won a set against the Longhorns since 2011, so just taking a set from UT would be quite an accomplishment.

It will be interesting how the Rankings and RPI view this week.

This year and last year for sure. Two seasons ago, when we beat Nebraska in the tourney we played well to finish the season. Not counting the years we didn't make the tournament when we were bad throughout these last two seasons are the only ones we limped to the finish after a strong start. Don't get me wrong though, these last two years have been awful finishes.

Title: Re: Volleyball
Post by: nicname on December 08, 2014, 04:46:33 AM
This team should get better the next couple of years.

They lost an HM all conference middle blocker in Jones, who basically came out of nowhere to be good, a pretty good all-around player in Keating, quality depth out back in Madonia, and Taylor Johnson, who in my opinion just couldn't adjust to the increased offensive tempo enough to get on the court. Come to think of it that probably had a lot to do with Jones' success this season.

Brand, Kober, Reininger, Zumach, and maybe even Sassin are all more talented than anyone they lost, and all of them should be in Manhattan for at least the next two seasons. Zarda, Vogel, are decent, and are both young. Hell everyone is young.

They will have two seniors next season. Dallas Gardner, a walk-on and Mary Alice O'reilly a 6-3 opposite who I think is redshirting after being all conference in the WAC.

They are bringing in a couple of All-Americans from small Kansas towns, but I've got no clue how good they'll be. I've heard from multiple people that 2012 and 2013 were littered with team cancers, and have heard players allude to as much without naming names multiple times this season.

They should be trending up. I have no clue how high that might be, but I think Fritz and her staff are rejuvenated. I thought she might be done after last season. She seemed run down. I don't get that sense anymore.

Currie wants to build them a practice facility near Bramlage, and they should just move to Bramlage for games.   I know MIR gets all whack-a-doodle about that, but the only other choice is to build a new indoor track facility and turn Ahearn completely over to volleyball, or build volleyball their own arena.   To do that right will take a lot of money and sorry, they just haven't been that good to justify that kind of expenditure.    I watched some of LSU Arkansas last night from LSU and looked like LSU does some things to cozy up their basketball arena for volleyball matches.     Florida State V-ball plays in some crackerbox gym.   KU is good and Horejesi (sp?) is just some tin shed high school gym.   

I'd love to see a total sports complex with a new indoor track venue and a new volleyball venue, but that's going to take up the beloved parking which some people have some sort of sick infatuation with.    To do something like that is going to cost tens of millions of dollars.

I would love for us to play in a facility like Horejsi. It lacks character but it is dedicated and it is a loud bandbox when they have KSU or UT in there, they don't care otherwise. Building a cozy 5000 seat facility at the sports complex would be best. It would obviously be limestone and have some character instead of being a metal outbuilding like Horejsi is. Until that happens we need to stay at Ahearn. I can't stand Ahearn but it is waaaaayyyy better than playing in Bramlage.

That's what they're doing with wildcat weekends (football and volleyball at home) this season, and I hate it. They did it earlier in the season against UNLV and the crowd was big but very quiet in what was a fun match. I'm assuming they're doing this to potentially test a permanent move, gross if so.

OK. Frankly, I want to see the VB games remain at Ahearn. Give that historic building a reason to exist, and I also like the VB atmosphere there. But willing to see what the turnout is at Bramlage, although I expect it may be the same as far as attendance goes, but not the same as far as acoustics and atmosphere goes. I favor Ahearn.

They're not underachieving at all. They've won all the matches they should have and lost the ones they should have. Punting the TCU match was the most disappointing result but they aren't terrible, their win agains us is the best win from the group of others which is everyone outside of UT, KU, and WVU.

As for Macy, not much to say. She didn't appear to be terribly involved but that can happen with middle hitters, especially if the team isn't passing well. The coaches seem to believe in her, they coach her very hard on the court which is expected being that she's a freshman and she nearly missed the first two months of the season.

I'm looking forward to read bones' summary of crap volleyball in Bramlage. Speaking of volleyball in basketball arenas, Iowa State had 46 people in the student section for our match, literally 46, four of them standing. I took a picture but dumbass Tapatalk wouldn't load it.

Yeah, for seeding. We're in, easily right now somewhere around a 7-10 seed. ISU is 21st in the RPI, our next two matches are against the RPI #2 and #5 teams. We aren't beating KU but that's fine, they're a final four contender. We've had a very good season with a very young team.

Kansas State athletic director John Currie says the school is working on a contract extension for volleyball coach Suzie Fritz.

Fritz has led the Wildcats’ volleyball team since 2001, winning 295 games and making 11 NCAA Tournaments. K-State is coming off a 17-win campaign in which it posted a winning conference record without a single senior on the roster.

The season ended with a loss to Wichita State in the NCAA Tournament.

Currie said he is proud of the work Fritz has put in and is eager to see what she can do next season, and beyond, with a young team returning.

“She has done a tremendous job,” Currie said. “We look forward to her continued success with the K-State volleyball team.”

I mean if you consider winning 20 matches every year and making the tournament every 4 out of 5 years mediocre all while being the like 5th or 6th highest paid coach in the conference then go ahead and fire her and see if you can find someone else who is essentially volleyball Frank Martin.

Incidentally she is 2nd all time in Big 12 wins and has more tournament appearances in 15 seasons than every other school does all-time excluding Texas. She has more Big 12 wins than Ray Bechard and he's been in the conference 5 seasons longer and she has more NCAA appearances and he's only been a head coach since she was 13 years old.

WTF? That's the stupidest crap I've ever seen in my life and you're better than that.

First of all outside of Texas, Penn State, USC, Florida, and Nebraska no program should be expecting the elite eight or final four. Kansas was not ranked in the preseason polls and were picked to finish fourth in the conference. They had a great year, but let's not get stupid. Did you miss my note about Suzie having more conference wins than Bechard despite the fact he's been in the conference four more years? Goddamn scott, grats, of all the stupid crap I've read on here your post wins first place. So I have to think you're in favor of TCU firing Sweaty Gary to hire Gene Chizik.

What MIR is saying, don't set your expectations above the general malaise and mediocrity to slightly above mediocrity that is K-State athletics.

This is why John Currie hammers home family, and world class student athlete experience, everything to avoid talking about actually winning at a high level.

Next up que MIR rant about money and stuff . . . well, prove that your worth making the investment in.

The Chiefs have beaten bad to mediocre teams, except Denver.   They were a dropped pass and bad goal line play away from OT or possibly a loss to San Diego, a bad team.   But this thread isn't about the Chiefs. 

This is about Kstate and John Currie's love of mediocrity.   For the 3rd straight year they'll like be zero conference titles.  This year is a minor bowl game for football, a half a cup of coffee for volleyball in the NCAA tourney, the NIT and WNIT in all probability, and bottom dwelling efforts from the rest of the men's sports.   Possibly something interesting from women's track.

What the eff are you talking about man, this is exactly the path that McLaughlin had us on, Jim Moore too. This program, for better or worse, has been amazingly steady for three coaches over the last 20 seasons. It's ironic that you brought up Jim McLaughlin, do you know why he left? I do and I heard it right out of his mouth. He left a school with 5 straight NCAA appearances and at the time was undoubtedly the second best volleyball school in the Big 12 conference, to what was undoubtedly the worst in the Pac 10.

It seems like we (k-state) canot get out of our own way.

Dude, what are you talking about with this get out of our own way stuff? We've been to the NCAA tournament 16 out of the last 20 years. Since the Big 12 started play in 1996, there have been 14 schools that have competed in the conference, only 3 of them have won a conference championship, THREE; Nebraska, Texas, and K-State. That's less than extremely top heavy men's and women's basketball. I have no idea what more you guys want. Tournament success for a program like K-State in volleyball is even more tenuous than in basketball. The NCAA tournament is played on home courts and the same big schools are going to get those advantages. We don't have teams that can go to Nebraska or to Washington and beat those teams, we just don't. What we do have is one of the best, most consistent 25 programs in the country that makes the tournament every year, finishes in the top 25 of attendance, produces a ridiculous amount of academic all conference and all americans, doesn't embarrass the school, and pulls in a decent amount of revenue.

You guys stop being so owned by KU that one good tournament run by them has you completely freaked out and incapable of using logic and common sense. I'll put it in a college basketball way so maybe you guys can understand it better, would you rather have Gonzaga's basketball program or George Mason's? KU won two matches in San Diego last weekend, good for them, really. But winning those two matches is no reason for you clowns to crap all over the success we've had. Get a grip.

Yeah anyone who has followed VB knows why he left, this isn't insidery info.  But you are 100% totally wrong about trajectory.  His trajectory was not a mid level conference contender with a once in a decade conf title run.  It's great that you bring up UW because it totally undercuts your point that K-State is on the same path now as what UW went on under McLauglin or even what McLaughlin was doing at K-State.  His success was trending up, the team was looking up, and Fritz benefited from his players.  If we take your position that UW was the worst, consider this, as you know, he has taken them to 3 PACs, 4 Final Fours, and a title (added bonus of 15 AAs and a NPOY in 2013).  Instead we've got....1 conference title and a crap load of, to barrow Dax's phrase, cups of coffee at the dance with little else.  So "steady" is one thing to call the program.  Mired in average to slightly above average play is more accurate. Mclaughlin was building this program into something better and Fritz has taken it to a leveled-off trajectory that is nice for many, but disappointing for some.  But this is the problem with K-State in many respects.  We've been on the right path and had some unfortunate circumstances take us off course from really competing for titles (thinking WVB and MBB, hell 90s to 00s FB).  But just because we have a "nice" program doesn't mean we should re-evaluate what the coach is actually doing to break through to that next level.  We've been on the cusp of that in many sports, many times, and never put all the pieces together.  At some point you have to break off a coach who is nice, and comforting to tucks, and push in a new direction, or you will always be the nice team, with nice facilities, and a nice record with little else.

Mclaughlin was building this program into something better and Fritz has taken it to a leveled-off trajectory that is nice for many, but disappointing for some.  But this is the problem with K-State in many respects.  We've been on the right path and had some unfortunate circumstances take us off course from really competing for titles (thinking WVB and MBB, hell 90s to 00s FB).  But just because we have a "nice" program doesn't mean we should re-evaluate what the coach is actually doing to break through to that next level.  We've been on the cusp of that in many sports, many times, and never put all the pieces together.  At some point you have to break off a coach who is nice, and comforting to tucks, and push in a new direction, or you will always be the nice team, with nice facilities, and a nice record with little else.

Okay so you used all of those words to say that you don't know why he left. He left because even though Washington was a dead ass program at the time he felt like that program had a better chance of success. They had a bigger budget, better geography, and did not have Nebraska and Texas to butt heads with. In simpler language he felt he had plateaued and Washington offered a better chance for loftier successes.

I never said or hinted that K-State was on the same path as Washington, I'm not sure what you read that lead you to think that. And no Suzie's greatest successes did not come with McLaughlin's players. She was the lead assistant on his teams and of the five best players on that team I can say for a fact that three of them; Lauren Goering, Vali Hejjas, and Gabby Guerre were recruited by Suzie when she was the assistant recruiting them or the head coach. I'm fairly sure that Jeff Grove recruited Laura Downey as well. I have no idea about Lisa Martin although I'd bet she was also recruited by Suzie given that her and Lauren was from the same area.

I don't give a crap about how nice Suzie is or isn't, I don't owe her a damn thing. What I do care about is that she has a direct tie to all but one of our tournament appearances in the history of the school and the only conference championship. When you're running an olympic sport you don't fire one of the winningest coaches in the history of the sport in hopes that you may find someone that can possibly win a few more matches in December, that's patently dumb, so dumb in fact that I am not going to talk about this anymore. Suzie has as much of a chance of getting fired as I do in being her replacement. I've wasted too much time on this stupid crap.

I appreciate a level headed check on what we *are* doing, but we are limiting what we *can* do, especially with a coach that has proven she is a middle of the pack, 1st or 2nd round NCAA coach.  Yeah we aren't going to go back to the path McLaughlin had us on, but we know that Suzi isn't going to get us much success.  Grats on the regular season record moral victory, but at some point it's K-state0 to harp on that crap instead of looking at tournament results. 


But besides that point, go horns, great to see Nub fans rooting so hard against them in ses 1 last night.

What the eff are you talking about man, this is exactly the path that McLaughlin had us on, Jim Moore too. This program, for better or worse, has been amazingly steady for three coaches over the last 20 seasons. It's ironic that you brought up Jim McLaughlin, do you know why he left? I do and I heard it right out of his mouth. He left a school with 5 straight NCAA appearances and at the time was undoubtedly the second best volleyball school in the Big 12 conference, to what was undoubtedly the worst in the Pac 10.

Suzie has as much of a chance of getting fired as I do in being her replacement. I've wasted too much time on this stupid crap.

This is a lot of words for a nothing post. 
First you can say what you want about the plateau of K-State and why he left.  That doesn't square with your claims about results and trajectory.  Second half the players you mentioned were recruited under his watch.  It's great they kept Suzie to keep continuity. No one is arguing against that.  But 2003 had a lot of his players on it, so the point is fairly moot.  You can't credit Frank's run without at least mentioning Huggins, and by your logic you dismiss that connection. 

Third, I have no idea what you're talking about her being nice and owing anyone anything.  I mean you jumped the shark here.  The point about it being a "nice" program (go back and read how I used nice) is that it's just that, nice.  Nothing to get too excited about, and a passing afterthought when the program is down (like it has been for 5 years).  I'm sorry, I don't think bottom half is acceptable for K-State in this conference.  If you do, fine.  Getting a ticket to the NCAAs and getting beat the eff down (3-1,  3-0 at rough ridin' home, 3-0) is acceptable for you, and a lot of other fans, fine.  It's not acceptable for me. For sure we can't change out Olympic coaches on a whim. And you must give them time to develop their players, their system, their recruiting strategies. Here is what we know.  Undeniably we are in a downward trend with her at the helm.  There have been some years where you have legit excuses (what was it, 2012 or 13 where half the team was dead from injuries for the year?)  How much of a track record do you need before you make a move?  It sucks when you have to put a coach out that has meant a lot to a program, but it is done often, and across all sports when there is a downward trend and little being done to correct it.  You have a hard on for Suzie and that's fine.  But you're letting your personal bias effect how you see this program.  Would you keep a coach in an easier league (Nubs is gone after all) who is winning less in conference, going to the dance less, and when they do make it are getting destroyed (sometimes on the home court) over nearly a decade trend?  Now no one is saying she is on the hot seat, but that doesn't change whether or not she should be feeling some heat.

Sorry, yeah they were a juggernaut last year, you could have made the argument that they and UT were the two best teams in the country. We can talk later about the lunacy of the NCAA continuing to allow Nebraska to play home matches throughout the NCAA tournament, including the final four. They'll be good again though not as good but that certainly can't be expected.

Pretty annoyed that the soccer and volleyball matches are at the same time on Sunday.

That being said It's also unfortunate the soccer match couldn't start at noon or the volleyball match start at 3.

Fritz, in her 16th year as K-State’s head coach, likens Reininger to Tigger off of “Winnie the Pooh.” Not only is she cheerful and outgoing, she’s also 100 percent comfortable in her skin.

“Her optimism, her positivity, she just exudes those qualities. She’s our Tigger,” Fritz said. “At first you wonder if that’s real, and then she does it every day for four years. Her ability to make people feel good about being alive and her ability to bring joy to all phases of our lives is pretty unique and pretty special.”

Like every rough ridin' time, I can't tell you how many sprains, ankle twists, knee bruises/elbow bruises I've had from diving or landing from a spike. If you actually play aggressive defense, you will absolutely hurt yourself. Hate giving up points to the other team just becuase you dont want to layout.

Kicked some ass in set 3 winning 25-13.
And avenge the earlier season loss to BU by winning set four 25-20.

Saturday's ut game is on the longhorn network fwiw

Unfortunately, because of the late season slide, we played ourselves right out of a decent seed. Now looking at another trip to Nebraska or Wisconsin or somewhere out west like Washington again. Mizzou looks like they may finish with a top 16 RPI, hopefully we get sent there.

we lost to tcu but other than that, the ku and isu losses are understandable
i kind of feel like we're playing above where we should be this season, i don't know if that's correct or not.  it'd be nice to close out w/ 2 wins and hope to bump up a spot in the b12 standings + hit the ncaa's with some momentum

but ya, would love to go to Columbia rather than Lincoln or Seattle, though this team has a lot of potential

I think the ISU and KU matches are bad losses. We are absolutely better than ISU and the KU match is one you have to finish if you are a good team, we gave it away. They are mired in the same issue the football team is, we can't seem to beat anyone better than us. As far as expectations, we were picked to finish sixth in the preseason but that frankly was ridiculously low. We returned all seven starters from last season's team, that team should have finished third but they had one of the worst collapses ever. Like I said we haven't beaten anyone, in conference anyway, better than us but we've punted a couple so to me we haven't met a reasonable expectation. We have had some injuries but  :dunno:

I agree. We collapsed in at least two matches this year, and maybe a third.  I didn't expect that with the starting lineup returning, so it makes it disappointing. I thought the would challenge for the conference title.

is there a comparison to be made between suz and deb?  coach a middle of the pack team to a cup of coffee in the ncaa's every couple of years?  i guess when you think about it, that same analogy could be used to describe any of our teams.  a little bit above average/mediocre.

I appreciate a level headed check on what we *are* doing, but we are limiting what we *can* do, especially with a coach that has proven she is a middle of the pack, 1st or 2nd round NCAA coach.  Yeah we aren't going to go back to the path McLaughlin had us on, but we know that Suzi isn't going to get us much success.  Grats on the regular season record moral victory, but at some point it's K-state0 to harp on that crap instead of looking at tournament results. 


But besides that point, go horns, great to see Nub fans rooting so hard against them in ses 1 last night.


I don't give a crap about how nice Suzie is or isn't, I don't owe her a damn thing. What I do care about is that she has a direct tie to all but one of our tournament appearances in the history of the school and the only conference championship. When you're running an olympic sport you don't fire one of the winningest coaches in the history of the sport in hopes that you may find someone that can possibly win a few more matches in December, that's patently dumb, so dumb in fact that I am not going to talk about this anymore. Suzie has as much of a chance of getting fired as I do in being her replacement. I've wasted too much time on this stupid crap.

You can't be serious? Are you actually aware of the records of Suzie and Deb? There is no comparison, its actually laughable.

As far as what I think about Susie, there might be 5 Olympic sports team coaches in all of the NCAA that would feel any pressure at all with a record of 315-176 and 12 NCAA appearances in 16 years. Anyone who expects more than that from a non-revenue sport at a small budget school should be mercilessly mocked.

We had an RPI of 19 going into the last weekend, Currie thinks we have a shot at hosting, which makes me think that he has had some contact with the NCAA about the possibility. They have to contact potential host schools about logistics before the bracket is complete. If we host it will be at Bramlage.

deb @ k-state 350-226 (.608)   
suzie @ k-state 295-168 (.637)

that comparison is laughable to you?  how weird.

one was fired for lack of performance, one was extended through 2020

i don't care about their comparative records though when, in totality, their results are the same. 
like i said, slightly above average teams who have no real shot at any post-season success. a cup of coffee in the tournament and a sense of accomplishment for the plane ride home.  seems to be the equal measure of both coaches.

i get the feeling that she's done everything that she's going to do at k-state, hope i'm wrong

I was the biggest Deb defender in the world but come on man, you're being intentionally obtuse. First of all Deb had other issues at K-State but if you completely ignore all of that Deb made the tournament only 9 out of 18 years. Deb finished in last place TWICE. Deb's final two years she was 30-37 and 10-26 coupled with a crap ton of defections. Suzie did have a similar two year stretch to that but it was because she had a ton of injuries and not because she was carrying a roster well short of the scholarship limit because she couldn't keep players in the program. Also unfortunately for Deb, that didn't constitute her worst stretch as a head coach, so yeah when you are asking why a coach who's last two years had a record of 30-37 doesn't meet the same fate as another coach who went 37-18 in the same stretch, I'm gonna laugh, a lot.

Maybe she has done everything she's going to do at K-State, find me 10 volleyball coaches that has done more in 16 seasons. She has the same amount of Big 12 championships as Ray Bechard has and he was her college coach. I'd sign up for 16 more years of exactly this from a volleyball program. I'm not willing to sacrifice consistent good for a couple of more December wins.

Hey MiR I appreciate your ardent support of our coaches.  You and I might disagree on some of the non revenue sports but I know you are looking at it with a level head.  It sounds like you don't think much has changed over the last few years with volleyball.  I've gone on record with you before that I thought Deb should have been fired immediately when those allegations, and later exposé, came out back with our big 3.  But besides that point we haven't been seeing the same kind of success as KU over the last few years.  It's an interesting perspective that you bring where you look at totality and I'm probably looking at it more 'what have you done lately.'  I just worry the lately has changed the expectation of this program to just being happy to make the NCAAs, ecstatic to host, and being in the top half, maybe top third of the conference.  I think there are a lot of circumstances that are radically different than Deb and Susie.  But it seems like Mittie has brought a lot of new energy to the wbb program.  I'm just curious to see at what point you think we need a change just for changes sake, or if that is even a thing in your mind.

First of all, I was dead ass wrong about deb, 100%. I honestly think the only thing that has changed in regards to Suzie is KU making that final four last year. If that didn't happen the casual fan wouldn't think "they did it, why can't we?" That is a fair question to ask, but for me I wouldn't trade their two seasons for what we have had. And like I've said before, even if this is what she is you can't fire an Olympic coach for what she's done. Is it more likely that you get someone who makes the NCAA tournament 3 out of every 4 years or are you going to get someone who you'll need to fire in 5 years because of sagging performance and attendance. She shouldn't change a thing, we win and make money, that's enough for me.

Nice easy win for the Cats tonight. Worried about tomorrow, we haven't played the Big 10 worth a damn, like ever.

As far as Creighton goes, they had to win twice tonight. In the fifth set KU appeared to hit a ball out that gave Creighton a 18-16 win. The up ref called the ball out and Creighton poured onto the court to celebrate. The ref did not scan his line judges before making his call and the line judge in front of KU's bench called a touch. Well the up ref calls both line judges over to him while Creighton is  :party: their asses off and literally a minute after he called the ball out, the up ref called a touch, to make the score 17-17. Creighton finally won 20-18.

I was sitting with a guy whose wife is a KU grad. When they won the fourth set he said it looked like KU would win since it went to a fifth set. The post game show is when I heard they lost.

KU didn't host because of that cracker box tin shed they play in, and apparently Allen's Boo House isn't set up for volleyball.   Lol at being so beholden to basketball that you can't move a game or two and won't install a couple of volleyball post holders on your court.

But, KU finished last year in the red on an operational basis (again) and no one showed up at the Sprint Center for their bball game (but they OWN Kansas City) so they probably couldn't afford to lose the revenue of the bball game.

MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State head volleyball coach Suzie Fritz announced the commitments of Brooke Heyne and Jacque Smith for the upcoming 2017 season.

Heyne, a 5-11 outside hitter, was named the 2016-17 Gatorade Nebraska Volleyball Player of the Year out of Skutt Catholic High School in Nebraska. Heyne led the SkyHawks to a perfect 44-0 record and second straight state title to go along with a No. 2 national ranking by PrepVolleyball.com.

In her senior season, Heyne tallied 474 kills, 362 digs and 40 service aces. A 2016-17 Under Armour Third Team All-American, she is also a MaxPreps First Team All-American and was named co-captain of the All-Nebraska Team.

“An incredibly talented and versatile player with a strong all-around skill set,” Fritz said of Heyne. “Brooke is a capable attacker, passer and defender that can impact our team in a number of ways. In addition, she has experienced great academic and competitive success. She excels in all areas of her life as an outstanding person committed to service and her academics.”

Smith was a four-year letterwinner out of St. Teresa’s Academy in Kansas City, Missouri. The 5-7 libero was selected to the Missouri-Kansas All-Star Team her senior season after setting the single-season digs record at STA with 545.

Smith received all-state, all-district and all-region honors in both her junior and senior seasons, as she led STA to the state tournament both years.

“Jacque is a high-energy and competitive libero candidate with good court presence and the capacity to manage first contact at a high level,” said Fritz. “Her primary responsibilities will be in the areas of pass and defend, but she will impact our team culture as a student and positive teammate.”

The Wildcats, coming off their 12th 20-win season under Fritz and fifth trip to the NCAA Tournament in the last six years, are currently in the midst of their spring schedule in preparation for the upcoming fall season.

Smith was a four-year letterwinner out of St. Teresa’s Academy in Kansas City, Missouri. The 5-7 libero was selected to the Missouri-Kansas All-Star Team her senior season after setting the single-season digs record at STA with 545.

Smith received all-state, all-district and all-region honors in both her junior and senior seasons, as she led STA to the state tournament both years.

“Jacque is a high-energy and competitive libero candidate with good court presence and the capacity to manage first contact at a high level,” said Fritz. “Her primary responsibilities will be in the areas of pass and defend, but she will impact our team culture as a student and positive teammate.”

The Wildcats, coming off their 12th 20-win season under Fritz and fifth trip to the NCAA Tournament in the last six years, are currently in the midst of their spring schedule in preparation for the upcoming fall season.
The hitter sounds like a great addition.  Looking forward to hearing more and following them again this fall.

Is there any news from today's noon match? I am having trouble finding it. I know they started with a win last night, and have two matches today. tia

The Oregon State match showed lots of weakness on our part.

I followed on Twitter, didn't sound like a great effort.   Looking forward to ESPN3 having some matches.

First time running a 2 setter offense. Looked rusty and don't know if they will stick with it. Lost in 5 to Arkansas.

Well that was disappointing, the girls absolutely tightened up on the 4th and 5th. I'd also love to know from someone in the purple pit, what was up Rigdon's ass. She was talking a lot of shot when the game was over.

Saw that Volleyball got a verbal from the #15 recruit in the nation for 2018.

Yeah, we used to beat the crap out of Texas when I was in school, things change, crap happens. I'm happy we've been relevant, in an Olympic sport, for 21 years straight.

Cats having so many technical difficulties early on. Ugh.

The Cats are getting killed at the net.

They are not playing in their system at all.

Never attacking. So tentative.

Fritz is not as aesthetically pleasing as Kramer.
