Re: NCAA decision on spring season dates

From a fan's perspective, this should be fine. From the coaches/admin side, perhaps a little trickier to schedule (games, practices, etc.), but considering most athletic depts are (relatively) dormant at the moment, the chaos is required in order to make up for lost time. I really feel for the paren...

I thought the first lesson of youth sports is that it's not about you (the parents)?

Cuneo (ITA) Tournament

Our MNT kicked off Day 1 of a 4-nation tournament (USA, Hungary, Italy, & Greece) with a 10-15 loss against Hungary. The Hungarian water polo site vlv.hu put together a nice goal-by-goal recap of the game: http://vlv.hu/news/12435/usa-magyarorszag-elo-kozvetites There's also streaming with repla...

Re: 2019 Men’s Season

Pavillard: so much fun to watch when he's on. Hope he's back. UCSB: I wish them well but feels like a waste of time to talk about them since they still have 2 more years of postseason ban to get through. 2 more seasons of post season ban? A one year, now served, voluntary withdrawal to avoid the po...

Re: Jovan Vavic Arrested

This article really hit home, and reads completely different in the context of recent events. However, you can't deny that Jovan loves his family. "He hopes that his children, not the championships or his coaching style, will be his ultimate legacy. Yet he acknowledges that there will be some w...

Re: Looks like Jovan just got indicted

The school should have had an administrator there as soon as possible, immediately to tell the team. Or they should have been brought home. I am sorry to say this but really appointing the Assistant coach as head coach, NOT SMART! I see no way the assistant coaches did not know this was going on. P...

Re: Jovan Vavic Arrested

Sorry you are totally right, the straight facts are that Jovan is a crook, and so is USC, so they could only be doing a lot more than we know. There you go again. "So is USC"? How is that a straight fact at this point? Also "so they could only be doing a lot more than we know."?...

Re: Stanford Invitational

This is happening more and more...so today it happens in an exhibition game against China, tomorrow it will happen against another unbeatable opponent, like a big 4 school for instance. Are we gonna start seeing teams from the 'second 4' roll over and tanking. Pepperdine did this during the men's s...

Re: Stanford Invitational

Looks like Michigan sat their starters against China this morning so they could give their all against UOP today. I think this is a really bad look and hopefully something that does not become a trend in our sport. ITS FEBRUARY!!!! No trophies getting handed out today!!! There are other ways to res...

USA looking dominant 10-4 halfway through 2nd quarter. Why did Luca shoot a helicopter backhand from 6m 15 seconds into the first possession of the game?

Re: 2019 FINA World Championship Qualifier

I also agree that some of our key players are in a much better place than they were in 2016, and that is reason for optimism. However, we shouldn't forget that some of the top teams in the world have also made huge strides since then.... Spain - 2016 QTR Final Finish (lost to Serbia 10-7) - 2017 2nd...
