Greenbrier Volleyball: Power or 1 Hit Wonder

Recommended Posts

Those are interesting facts. Although, I don't know why you combine Middle and West Tennessee to compare to East Tennessee. If you split the state into three, as is typical, East Tennessee has 26 of 72 while Middle Tennessee has 37 and West Tennessee has 9. I would say that Middle Tennessee excels, East Tennessee holds its own and West Tennessee lags behind.

 

Volleyball has just caught on in the [Knoxville] area...

It's glaring to most people, but I'll tell ya straight: K2 is so East-only that he gives absolutely NO respect to us in middle OR west TN.

 

REALLY?! I thought Anderson Co. was the birthplace? :shock::ph34r:

I have been enjoying the state tournament. But where is Greenbrier? How can a state power not make the playoffs this year, the weakest year in memory for AA? All of the power this year was in AAA.

 

If they didn't do it this year, they are a 1 hit wonder.

 

Also, where was Father Ryan?

You mean back to back state title wonder. Ryan is just fine and dandy, we have 5 titles, how many do you have as a player, or did you ever play period. :D

It's located north of Nashville. Y'all won it and a so-called 'pageplayer' calls it weak??? Hmmm...

 

I beg your pardon... :P

 

FR is located south of town between Franklin Rd. and I-65S. :roflolk:

 

Now that you know where WE are, why don't you spend some time figurin' out where YOU are! :wacko:

PPlayer, lets see, you enrolled in CT in August 03, seem to be a young lady but likely you are posting on an older screen name or trying to get 5sport and ST riled up. You succeeded. Strength in AA was Page and will be for a few years. AAA strength has yet to be seen. Too many players at too many schools to find out. Club has evened everything out and now it has become very easy to figure out before State, who will be in the top slots. I can almost do it right now for next year with club being played as it is now and Tournaments being held as they are now. Too many large Tournaments and the real surprises only came from D2 when pre tournament events meant really nothing as far as State was concerned. It seems to happen that way in every State in every Division. What makes the difference? While coaches have gotten much better, more better coaches will make the difference it appears to me, along with better programs and coaches with great technical abilities entering the scene. The second thing is Middle Schools and the TSSAA need to get their organizational hats on and organize the Middle School Programs like the High Schools but not in Divisions. One Division. There will be plenty of opposition to that. There will likely be some support to that also. More qualified teacher,coach personnel are needed in the system.

Your statement about pre-tournament events I hope is not implying that the starting setter for Ryan who had to battle Cancer versus playing did not make any difference. It made a huge difference. But we are very happy that she is winning the battle of cancer and that makes volleyball seem kind of trivial at this point. Addendum--by the way Phillip, what happened to Seagull? Now I am under your skin. :roflol::roflol:

My statements speak for themselves and at times have included comments about a lot of circumstances which all have made differences or I would not have made any comment. Thats the reason for the comment. Major things have happened to players, parents, fans, etc, which I have felt have put another face on this site other than just Volleyball but let those thruout the state know that those playing and involved are just people with the same problems and concerns as many others we don't know about. Many who I didn't know have come up to me expressing thanks to know personally who a person might be. Sickness, injuries, accidents and other things have made me think that the game is just part of this site. Players, parents, fans have tried to relate situations to their own situation. Right now, as you might know and expect, there are many who still keep up by name with these circumstances as well as others and mentioned so at State. Some asked why some things were mentioned and the circumstances just two nights ago when I attended an event in Nashville. Fans want to feel a part of what they are supporting. Booster Club members thruout the State along with the Coaches make things work and they might not post much, but they want to keep up with what is going on and even right now, this season was crammed full of things that some would like to keep up with. Coaches, Fans, players are personalities, "Rock Stars"> :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Well, doggone, I am going to have to agree with you. The game as all games are just a part of all the sites. There are far more important things as we both know. The best to all players everywhere and be thankful for the ability to play and the opportunity. :)
