    Who is this brazilianrecruit being mentioned on volleytalk?

    • warriorfan December 26, 2010 at 10:14 pm

      “ingoodstanding” mentioned that, I wouldn’t believe anything that person says…..

      • Cindy Luis December 27, 2010 at 10:07 am

        That rumor has been out there for a month or so. I have heard nothing concrete.

        • WOW ! December 27, 2010 at 10:29 am

          Not saying that we will never have another foreign player but this Brazilian recruit thing has been around VT for years.At one point this mystery Brazilian became a Chinese’s 7 footer for awhile.

          What I do know ,because Dave mentioned it, is that we have an associate basketball coach who is a native of Brazil and coached in the Brazilian National basketball program what kind of contacts he has in the volleyball world I don’t know.

        • warriorfan December 27, 2010 at 4:37 pm

          You mean there is a chance this is real?? A brazilian middle that will become the best player on the team instantly?? I am crossing my fingers… and toes!!

          • Cindy Luis December 27, 2010 at 5:25 pm

            Don’t know if it’s real. been floated out for a while. we shall see.

    I meant to say “insights”, sorry but incite might fit some of the blogs which is just fine with me.

    • Cindy Luis December 27, 2010 at 5:41 pm

      I’m sure i’ve done some inciting along the way. Today good example. We were out paddling in Kailua, have been in the vicinity of the Obama compound the past few days, close enough to see the yellow buoys that’s supposed to designate the no paddle zone. EXCEPT today the Coast Guard came roaring over with siren and light to ‘chat’ and told us we couldn’t be there. Made for an exciting morning.

    Happy New Year Cindy and to the volleyball Ohana!!

  • Cindy Luis December 27, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    I don’t know about your lineup. WF. Sounded like they were done for 2011. Shoji had said that even if a scholarship opened up (and it has with Cascioppo retiring) they weren’t going to go out and get another recruit. It could go to Satele, it could go to Stauber.
    but i’m sure they wouldn’t turn away a good transfer.

    • warriorfan December 27, 2010 at 9:34 pm

      Darn I was hoping this Brazilian recruit was for this upcoming season :)

  • Cindy Luis December 27, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    WF, as mentioned earlier, this thing about a Brazilian has been discussed for a while. just mentioning what Shoji told me about the 2011 recruiting. but you nevah like know.

    • WOW ! December 28, 2010 at 7:44 am

      “Brazilian has been discussed for a while”

      May I ask ,discussed by who? Anyone with any credibility ?

      • Cindy Luis December 28, 2010 at 9:01 am

        discussed here only because of the VT thread. Not that we really discussed more than that.
        VT has some credible people on there …

  • Yabba-Dabba-Doo December 28, 2010 at 4:44 am

    What is with this obsession with a Brazilian player ? There are Brazilian players all over the NCAA especially on the east coast and none of them are all world or even All Americans,this is so ridicules. Foreign players at the college level are no better than the talent available in the US.
    Look at the Florida State roster,loaded with foreigners but are they any better for it? Have they been to a Final Four with all of their foreign players ?

  • Jeff December 28, 2010 at 8:51 am

    Sure FSU is better for it. They’ve never been to a final four, but just compare it to where the program was with the prior coach who didn’t bring in foreign players. I don’t think the prior coach ever made the NCAA tournament.

  • Cindy Luis December 28, 2010 at 9:03 am

    One of the prior coaches being Dr. Cecile Renaud of the AVCA

  • WOW ! December 28, 2010 at 9:28 am

    That whole Brazilian player thing has been an annual event on VT for years,can’t believe there are people who actually believe the stuff they read there.

  • po'okela December 28, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    screw the braziliand…
    i just wanna know what’s going on for 2012
    everyone is snagging all the top recruits.

    • Yang Ping December 29, 2010 at 1:34 pm


  • wtdoor December 31, 2010 at 7:45 am

    Is it true the aforementioned Brazilian stands 6’10″ and has a 13 foot vertical?
