If you find yourself on a golf course with the San Diego State women's volleyball coaches, and you might now that they are trying to get out once a week, the rules of the game--according to assistant Myles Gabel--are fairly straightforward: The head coach gets to kick any ball he wants if he gets a bad lie. Coaching mulligans are allowed. How many? "As many as the head coach wants," Gabel said. And so it was a few days ago on the Oak Glen course at Singing Hills.

When Rudy Suwara turned 50 last fall, his San Diego State women's volleyball team, as a joke, presented him with a rocking chair. He even coached a match that night from the rocking chair. What he didn't know was that the rocking chair would turn out to be his first retirement gift. This summer, after 16 years of coaching SDSU volleyball teams, Suwara was fired by the Aztec athletic department.

Last week, before winning his 400th match as San Diego State's women's volleyball coach, Rudy Suwara made a point to praise the university and his former and current players. He also spoke fondly of Akio Yamagishi, a friend and coach of Nihon University in Japan (enrollment 80,000), who spent the past six months at SDSU on sabbatical. Suwara said Yamagishi was here to compare the status of sport in the U.S. with that in Japan. He also found time to help out the Aztecs.
