There would be many more men's teams in volleyball, if not for the current
interpretation in how to enforce Title IX.As a top female athlete
once said, "Title IX is intended to advance women's sports, not inhibit
men's."Unfortunately it is doing a lot of the latter.
It's fun to go to the Smith Fieldhouse for volleyball. BYU's teams are
so amazing. I started watching them when they came to UCI or UCLA. I live in
Utah now and try to catch live games. VB is so amazing - guys and gals jumping
so high and hitting so hard and making impossible digs.I loved to
play volleyball, but would never make a junior high school team today. These
guys and gals are real athletes.
@Aunty "You obviously haven’t watched much men’s
volleyball"Yes, that's what I said!To say that I have never
watched wouldn't be true. I think it was Ohio State that I watched beat
BYU. Exciting! There are probably many exciting games/matches. My
point is that an entire collegiate league with only 22 teams lacks depth.
@THEREALNDNot quite accurate. There actually about 24 D1 schools and
around 20 D2 schools who compete with the D1 Schools in men’s volleyball.
THEREALND - Mishawaka, INJan. 10, 2019 5:04 p.m.I don't follow
men's collegiate volleyball. But it doesn't appear to be a very robust
sport with only 22 schools competing in Division I. You obviously
haven’t watched much men’s volleyball.
BYU Volleyball is superb on the Women or Men's side. A sister and brother
coach these two teams and boy, can they coach! We LOVE to watch these games and
are avid fans of Heather and Shawn Olmstead and the BYU volleyball teams.The girls were awesome. The men's team looks really good tonight
sweeping Ohio State at home. We missed watching the game because it was on at
the same time as Men's Basketball, and I couldn't pick it up on w.tv.

The women's sport is much more healthy.
@ BlueCoug,After I graduated from Utah in 1984, I got a full-ride
golf scholly at Hawaii. Back then, Hawaii was a great men's volleyball
school too! That is how I noticed BYU volleyball, and follow both teams....girls
and men. They are a great product and I watch almost every game. BYU is a
volleyball school and a great one, hands down. My fave team is U
gymnastics......oh my......the best program in NCAA and sports history......no
other team comes close in any sport......pro or amateur.
I generally don't watch much sports as it is much more fun to play sports
than it is to watch, but volleyball has to be one of the best, if not the best,
sport to watch. It is fun that both men's and women's volleyball at
BYU are consistently great. I think the crowds at the fieldhouse are louder than
those in the Marriott Center. Looking forward to the new volleyball season, go
Real Ute - Dallas, TXJan. 10, 2019 8:30 a.m.I love BYU volleyball!
I've followed them since 1984. I never root or cheer for the Y, but they
can sure play big time volleyball = entertainment = 1000%!———As a former BYU player, I totally agree.BYU men’s and women’s VB have been BYU’s most
consistently big time programs.It’s too bad Utah doesn’t
sponsor a men’s team.Go Cougs!💙🤙🏐
Olmstead is a solid coach and a hard worker. He is also a good recruiter. Just
checking the men's vb roster shows a very deep and talented team from all
over the world. How can the men's vb team find that many guys over
6' 7" from all over ........ and Dave Rose can't find any? Hmmmmm
work ethic? The BYU women's vb team is almost as tall as the men's
bb team. At what point do we just ask the 2 vb coaches to do the recruiting
for the men's bb team?? My bet is that they would could and would do a
better job of recruiting outside of Utah. I also am willing to bet that the 6
tallest guys on the vb team can out jump/dunk/shoot a basketball better than any
big on Rose's team except Childs ......... although they all might be able
to out jump Childs. Really these vb programs at BYU just out work most other
programs at the school. They deserve the success they have achieved. Please
help refer players who aren't good enough for your vb teams to the
Men's bb team!! Just be careful to allow Rose to think it was
his idea ..... or just tell him that the players are from LP!
I believe that BYU is the only program with a winning record versus UCLA, which
has won more national championships than any other program.Looking
forward to another BYU national championship contending season.💙🤙🏐
I’m looking forward to watching Will Stanley develop as a setter. Not only
does he have the pedigree, but he brings it from the service line.
