Dismissed, huh? He coach couldn't get a job with the Seattle Seahawks? Coach
at Kentucky? What is the world coming to when a coach gets fired for
Imagine if BYU goes on probation as they attempt going Independent........shut it down...it's over.
I hope they do a better job hiring this time. There are some great LDS
volleyball coaches and I'm sure Patchell was just fine but hiring internally
from a staff that had problems doesn't seem too bright.
Tommy boy is a little late on this one, sanctions came down last year. I don't
know that it was patchell that started the problem (violations) but if he kept
it going I'm glad he is gone. I hope they find a good coach to continue our
great volleyball program.
do we have a volleyball team?
hedgehog | 4:01 p.m. Aug. 18, 2010 Is BYU attempting to go
independent? I thought that was just talk.
Hedgehog.Is there anything about BYU sports that you could at least
post without clueless bias?Like volleyball affects football in ANY
men's volleyball was in its own hybrid conference and not in the MWC. I think a
lot of the MWC schools didn't have men's volleyball. So BYU going on probation
for men's volleyball has no effect on BYU going independent for football (WAC
also doesn't have its own volleyball league and instead has teams that are part
of BYU's hybrid volleyball conference)
hedgehog, shut what down? We're talking about volleyball, here. Volley...ball.
BYU is going independent in football. Foot...ball. No allegations of
violations/threat of sanctions there.
PGVikingDad,Ok, that was funny.
bigv56don't ask do "we" have a volleyball team, if you don't know,
you're not "we."
In fact, USC, UCLA, and Stanford (except for last season) don't take too well to
being pummelled by BYU. In the last 10 years, it has happened regularly and
often. They don't like BYU. Someone is always calling foul against BYU
volleyball. Under the current sanctions, they lost .5 scholarship.
Considering the team only has 4.5, that is pretty significant. BYU stresses
that they strive to meet all NCAA violations, but if they have continued, the
school had no choice but to fire the coach. Maybe Carl McGown may come back.
Or perhaps Ryan Millar will retire from Team USA and return. Then there is the
former Pepperdine and Hawaii coach who both offered to be BYU ASSISTANTS!!!! in
the past. This is a bummer, but there are options.
