This is mainly a response to the Ohio Alumni team posts. I think the level of men's volleyball as a whole has dramatically improved in the past decade. I think the top high school teams of today are far and above better than the top high school teams of 2000-2007. The players are starting earlier and have become more fundamentally sound as a result. The players are more athletic and the pace of the game is faster. Watch a Ball state vs. Penn state game from 2008 and you'll see what I mean. The setters aren't jump-setting and the hitters aren't getting up or hitting as hard as college players today. The same can be said about a high school championship from 2007 compared to 2016. Lee Meyer or Andy Pompeii and some of the other "greats" don't even compare to players today. Holt and cash are exceptions to this and we're very talented players.
