Let me see if I've got this right...

(I'm sorry, but some stories you just. can't. ignore.)

Deitre Collins is leaving her job as an assistant to Joel McCartney at Georgia to go back to Cornell and reclaim her position as head coach, a job she left approximately 5 months ago.


How'd that happen? Did Deitre ever really leave Cornell? Did she have to reapply for the Cornell job? And if so, did she list Joel as a reference?

"And, your last job was...?"


"And before that?"


"Oh that's right. How...silly of me."

So in about five months, Joel has lost both his assistants and his director of volleyball operations. Yikes.

Not that something nefarious is going on, as Kevin was going to leave if the right head coaching job opened up, and the DOO got married, which changes everything.

But...this is like the Wright Brothers showing up at Kitty Hawk, getting ready to test their plane, and then having two wings and a propeller fall off, like Columbus sailing for the New World, and then the Nina rams the Pinta which sinks the Santa Maria.

Should've known this was coming

Well, I started this blog with the best of intentions: to have some fun, to try and get a laugh out of some people, to bring some interesting writing to volleyball, the game I love, because it desperately needs something other than sports information press releases and student newspaper articles.

I wanted to provide some entertainment. And I hope for the 300+ people a day that were reading the site, I accomplished that. I got a lot of really nice emails from people. But I've decided to stop because...well this thing takes a lot of time, and I was missing some really good TV. No one told me The Sopranos was ending.
