JT was not able to go, she wasn’t left off the roster. Plummer has been the worst passer in the gym. Rettke was the worst statistical blocker at VNL of all the current USAV middles and Micha I mean Idk what your argument is for her.
FYI, JT’s been playing in Italy the last couple weeks, her non-inclusion was a coaches decision based on her missing the last week of practice before the tourney. Other than that, if you like the production from the OH’s, setting and the tiny backup middles Karch won’t use…..well good luck!
I know you love to poke at certain middles heights....
the best middle in the world rn is 6'0.... just saying.
I wasnt the one saying "such and such" was a joke. You were. I was giving a comparison.
Whether you like it or not, the Olympics are a much bigger deal than the world championships. They're called an "olympic cycle" for a reason.
It's viewed the same by players.
No one is getting paid big $$ (or remembered) for winning VNL or WC. They're getting endorsements, interviews, followers, etc.. from an Olympic gold. Without a doubt, this is the case in every country.
That was the rule, but that didn't happen for any USA Volleyball player or coach after Tokyo, did it?
