2019 B1G Volleyball Thread
« on: June 25, 2019, 10:28:28 PM »
Can't let this news slide until August when it would be most appropriate to start this thread once the season schedules are finalized.  Though, expect Stanford to be prohibitive favorite to repeat.

Iowa's Head Coach Bond Shymansky was fired last week for giving a player an 'impermissible benefit.'  Shymansky was put on administrative leave in May while the school investigated.  Shymansky (an Iowa alum and native) was silent during the leave, but then issued this statement after his firing.  Sounds like NCAA is now investigating.

"Former University of Iowa Head Women's Volleyball Coach Bond Shymansky acknowledges that an NCAA violation was committed when he provided financial assistance to a team member during the summer of 2017 to cover her rent."
This next part is from Shymansky.
"For the past month, I have cooperated with the University's request to remain silent regarding the underlying basis for my suspension. Now that I have been terminated, it is time to shed light on the details and end any wild speculation.
"I did not discriminate against, abuse or harass anyone — and there has never been an allegation of sexual misconduct against me. In an act of compassion, I advanced funds to cover a young woman's unanticipated summer expenses in 2017. She came to Iowa City expecting to be on full scholarship, but when that status changed, she had nowhere else to turn. I have prided myself on running an NCAA-compliant program. However, I understand that I didn't 'do it right' by NCAA standards in this one instance and I am prepared to accept whatever sanction is deemed appropriate by the NCAA.

"I was born and raised a Hawkeye and wish to stay a part of this great community. I know big things are in store for coach Brown and the rest of the exceptional young women on our volleyball program. As a man of faith, I humbly apologize to anyone that my actions may have negatively impacted, and look forward to the next chapter in my life."


Pretty strong statement by Shymansky.  Without knowing how this became known, or frankly mismanaged by Iowa/Shymansky, hard to allocate fault, though you would think the Coach knows how to manage the scholarships/roster, and if not him, aren't there 19 compliance officers in these ADs.  Curious how the player contributed to this situation, if at all.

sounds like coach gave the player some cash for rent, rumors started that the cash was for something else

just wanted to set the record straight

Yes, that's the consensus of a variety of reports.  All the more reason it's a head scratcher from a roster/scholly management standpoint for the HC and the AD.

OSU had a scrimmage in their new arena a few weeks back, and it was pretty sweet. Still had that new arena smell. The younger Sandbothe sister has transferred from K-State to Ohio State, which was a pleasant surprise. We are coming for ya, Big Red. 

Speaking of the Huskers, my HS hired Hunter Atherton's mom to coach their VB team. The last coach won 145 consecutive Conference games over the last 12 years, and went to six Final Fours. So pretty big shoes to fill. 

OSU has a whopping 19 players on the roster this year, so they should be better suited to withstand their annual rash of injuries. Home girl Rachel Kirchner is not one of them, unfortunately, but they can never take away the pair of trillions that she posted. 

I have zero sympathy for Iowa, since they are the ones that are responsible for getting OSU's 99 and 00 seasons vacated. What goes around comes around. I will of course still root for them whenever they take on the Wolverines. But only then.

So the new setter enrolled early, and was the only healthy setter on the roster for all of their spring scrimmages in March and April. So she's all broken in. Then they rolled out all nine of the noobs (2 grad transfers, 7 frosh) for the June scrimmage in the new Arena. That event kicked off a S American tour through Brazil, Peru, etc. So the Buckeyes have had plenty of time to gel heading into Training Camp.

Horns play Minnesota in Austin on 9/4.  Other than that, no B1G teams on the schedule this year, although we do have USC, Stanford, BYU, and Wichita State scheduled.

Is this sport like hockey (or I think baseball is this way too) where schools can give out fractional scholarships?
