Using the art of the bluff
By Charlie Anthe
September 15th, 2010

Poker, it has been said, is the art of knowing when and how to bluff. I'm not sure who, if anyone, said it, but it sounds pretty cool. When I play poker, I bluff when needed to try to win a hand. When it comes to calming an angry coach, sometimes bluffing them is the best way to move the match along.
2010 Volleyball Rule Changes
By National Federation
January 28th, 2010

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (January 28, 2010) - One of several new rules changes by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Volleyball Rules Committee permits a coach to request a substitution after submitting his or her lineup for a set but prior to play commencing. The changes, which were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors, will take effect with the 2010-11 season.

Rather than beginning the set with a penalty of a loss of rally and a point for the opponents, the changes to Rules 10-1-4 and 7-1-2 will allow the head coach to make a substitution after the lineup is submitted, which may alleviate confusion by players and officials to start the set.

Competition on a grand scale

Our Editor-in-Chief was moaning and groaning the other day. When that happens, the office moans and groans as well, not in sympathy, mind you, but in fear. Carl kept muttering words like "stupid" and "dumb" and "idiot." We didn't figure out until lunch that he was talking about himself, and that certainly lightened the atmosphere. Finally, we came to understand that volleyball was the source of his tribulation.

So, we prevailed upon him to share that with Officiating.com's readers. Here it is. All you have to do is click the title.
