Hmmmmm....funny coincidence as my daughter likewise only played one year of college volleyball.  She never expected the level of commitment and the fact that there were 7 freshman recruits of which she was the lowest rated server.  She figured she would kill herself and never get to play a lot and decided to focus on academics.  It was fun going to the few games we could make (she went to school in Texas) but we rarely got to see her play. Now if we are talking women's volleyball I am all in.  I still watch NCAA women's vball on ESPN as it is a great spectator sport.  To me, and this is just my personal opinion, I find soccer to be tedious and boring and can't stand the fake injuries.

A quick funny story.  My daughter is hyper-competitive and hates to lose.  She would cry every time her soccer team lost and one day her coach channeled Tom Hanks and told her there's no crying in soccer.  She's been out of high school for six years and every time I see Coach Rodasta we have a good laugh about that at her expense.  He loved coaching her because of her fire but had to temper her overly competitive nature at times.  She had little patience for others that lacked her level of desire to win and had no problem expressing her disdain for anything less than 110% effort.  No one on her vball team went to the floor for balls more than her.  Fun to watch...until she made a mistake.  Same story when she first learned to ski.  Lot's of pounding the water and tears.  Now she is very accomplished at that as well.

As I said, my title was inflammatory and over the top on purpose but I can see now that it sent the wrong message.
