Re: Good Tyler & BadTyler..
Bring in Brian Gimmillarro? There is a limit on the number of coaches, and there is already a full staff. That's dumb, even as a joke.
If Tyler can't train the middle blockers, then he has to have someone on his staff capable and qualified to do it. That's what a head coach does.
I don't know if I'd call the play 'very little', there have been some outstanding games, and then matches like yesterday, hitting 0, 1 block against....Riverside middles? no offense to Riverside (ok, offense I guess) but getting outplayed that bad. I know some of it is the setting isn't great....and that falls to Tyler and staff to not have developed timing, I do wonder if they miss Fuerbringer for the middle play though.
bring in BG for a few weeks, Middle timing was always there under BG
this year it falls apart WAY too often, unacceptable
is it inconsistence play or very little play so far over this season? yes the biggest disappointment so far this season is the play (not being) middle? -- when i see tyler in the tyler stance then i will know is he getting serious and they players will also see that now is the time to play a little hard and finally abuse the volleyball -- it is time yes it is time for that tyler stance -------------------------
that was kidding, Tyler is good with what he says publicly
but he doesn't get asked hard questions in those pressers
he's never really addressed the lack of use of O'Sullivan (not that I blame him), but has been such an obvious question when a proven all 1st team pin hitter who is hitting 100 points more than the OH2s isn't even playing - not meant to be good or bad, but it's a valid question
he deflects for his players like a good coach does an doesn't make excuses like Joy always did who appeared flustered all the time. - for that alone, and they are coming thru when they have to, he gets major props - just the feeling they never play to their potential combined wiht so much inconsistency in the middle play
Or maybe under-analyzed?
Being directly responsible for all the aspects of running a vb program is one thing that differentiates a Head Coach from an Assistant. It doesn't have to be a great leap, depending on how much actual responsibility or interaction an Assistant actually had, much it is different. I heard Tyler mention in a past press conference, in a joking way, that he had to learn/remember to prepare or submit his player lineup to the ref at the start of the match. Maybe not that much of a big deal, but it illustrates the point.
lol, well it s not like lacking that should be a show stopper
Part of me thinks Tyler either has overanalyzed or over committed to certain ideas
NOt using O Sullivan has been the biggest head scratcher to m
lol You were the one that kept saying no previous Head Coaching experience wasn't a big deal.
lol, so he finally discovers he recruited O'sullivan!!
then forgets she's not a backrow player
I mean, I thought Tyler was 'exceptional'
anyway, he figured it out
but man, didn't see all of it, but what in hades is with the timing with our middles
and like no blocks
it looked like we were gonna get pulverized
just win a I guess, just hard to get a handle on this team other than one has to credit them in crunch time....well not set 4 crunch time with like 4 straight attack errors to end the set
that set and a half for the 2nd and 3rd was simply horrific
Never a dull moment with this team. It's almost as through they are playing Texas or Nebraska every match. Nice that someone discovered that Victoria O'Sullivan and Nicole Hoff are still on the team. It would have been an embarrassing loss without O'Sullivan tonight.
