    It’s probably not in the cards, but we’ll see what happens when we have a new president. You never know.
    Add Men’s Soccer. Done.

      Hmmm

      Sina Uluave, Shea Lauria, Nicole Anderson, Mariah Buss, Megan Taflinger, mysteriously no longer listed on the Wichita State Volleyball Roster.

      They made it to the two year get out window.

      Were they walk ons?
      Or just looking to go play Beach Volleyball someplace?
      Or not seeing the floor?
      Maybe not mentally tough?

      Whatever the reason, it's a self fulfilling prophecy. Always waiting till next year, or Lambo's system is so tough to understand and takes time to learn.

      2018 Freshman/Redshirt Freshman
      Brylee Kelly
      Kora Kauling (gone)
      Chinelo Ogogor (gone)
      Megan Taflinger (gone)
      Makenna Miller (gone)
      Grace Burken (gone)
      Maddy Fruend (gone)
      Jenna Mak (gone)
      Alayna Maslinski (gone)

      2019 Freshman/Redshirt Freshman
      Skylar Goering
      Brylee Kelly
      Kayce Litzau
      Nicole Anderson (gone)
      Arianna Arjomand (gone)
      Sina Uluave (gone)
      Chinelo Ogogor (gone)
      Sophia Rohling
      Shea Lauria (gone)
      Lilly Liekweg

      2020
      Mariah Buss (gone after freshman year)

      Playing time?
      Burken (25 matches played)
      Kauling (50 matches played)
      Anderson (+25 matches played)
      Arjomand (25 matches played)
      Uluave (+40 matches played)
      Ogogor (23 matches played)
      Buss (14 of 17 matches as a freshman)
      Taflinger ( +70 matches played)

      That's 1 setter, 2 middles, 1 ds, and 4 outsides with signifiant playing time, "learning the system", GONE.

        For what reason would any player that contributed to a season of play have their picture/name removed from that year's roster after the season is over. For example, Mariah Buss. Without looking at the stats, it's as if the person never existed on the team. Is this normal with all WSU sports?

          No other sport does that that I'm aware of.
          “The rebellion on the populist right against the results of the 2020 election was partly a cynical, knowing effort by political operators and their hype men in the media to steal an election or at least get rich trying. But it was also the tragic consequence of the informational malnourishment so badly afflicting the nation. ... Americans gorge themselves daily on empty informational calories, indulging their sugar fixes of self-affirming half-truths and even outright lies.'

            Well, I was pretty sure it's not happened with men's basketball, but I was not sure about other sports. Just seems wrong to me.
