The issue I see staring us in the face is that we haven't found a suitable replacement for Moser. Julia K must not be 100%, or at least isn't playing up to her pre-injury self, and Amelia Johnson is too green to fill the role of Moser/Julia K sufficiently. I'm guessing Pryor is figuring they can still have a highly successful season without pulling any red shirts (or they're not any better than those that are playing). There's a secondary development that's started recently that I am not in favor of, and that is Dooley playing one position of back row. My only guess is that Pryor is trying to do her a favor to potentially advance her chances of post-college playing (Olympic tryout? Beach circuit? (is that a thing?)) by making her a more well-rounded player. Trouble is, she's not that great of a server - yeah, she doesn't error generally, but they're super easy to dig. Then, when the opponent gets in system easily (because of the soft serve), they attack right at Dooley, who's a pretty poor back row player due to her height. Pryor's wasting a rotation in my opinion, and it's not in the best interest of the team.
The loss last night may have end of season repercussions, as we are all aware. Gotta root for the other good teams in the South Division (NAU, PSU) to hand SAC two losses, while we remain at one loss.
