He is speculating.

No hot seat until/unless we lose to t.u.

I dunno. He seems to have lost Gabe, which I didn't think was possible. We'll see. No matter what, that was a horrific weekend.

From Gabe. 100% this.

I feel like we will recover, sneak into a regional and save RC’s job just because that’s what we do

re: The Road to Omaha - 2020
We're at a point where most of the fanbase isn't happy with making a regional. If you mixed in a nice Omaha run, then maybe, but we're approaching 3 years removed from Omaha and 4 years removed from being really good.

I agree, I just don’t see us doing anything unless we miss the tournament. I hope I’m wrong, and maybe if it goes as I said and we’re out quickly it would be enough.

I don't want to do something just to do something. RC has his program built to sustain success. It's a lot more fun to win 35-40 games a year and participate in the postseason every single year. If we have a target we feel comfortable with that gives us a shot to take the next step then we should do it. If not, then I don't want to be South Carolina.

re: The Road to Omaha - 2020
Personally I feel we underachieve in baseball more than football. If we don’t have the money available to go after a bigger name and only can go for mid major types then I guess I agree with you, I just feel like it’s unlikely we hire someone and fall completely off. I don’t see a ton of risk in making a change at this point.

We are smack dab in the middle of probably the third best recruiting area in the country (behind south FL and southern CA) pour tons of resources into our program, and are one of a pretty small number of schools that do so and have a fanbase that truly gives a shite about baseball. I realize it’s made harder by the conference we play in, I just see years where we are on the fence for a regional as a pretty massive failure. We have been poor at developing position player talent for all of RCs tenure and he has never shown signs of improving. Maybe the new hitting coach is the answer and we will start to see some results as the year goes on

re: The Road to Omaha - 2020
Also the NCAA baseball tournament is generally random as hell so I don’t want to make it seem like I’m wholly judging him on those failures. How many years have we felt like we had the talent to be an elite team/true national title contender? 2011, 2012, 2016, we were preseason number one in 09 but I don’t think that team had the talent those other 3 had.

To me you need to stack elite teams as often as possible and let the chips fall where they may when the postseason rolls around. IMO we don’t do that enough right now

Haven’t been able to watch much but we’re looking good to complete the sweep. Up 5-1 in the 4th.

Lacy may be the top pick?

He’s gotta be the heavy favorite for first pitcher off the board for sure

who could have predicted that?

I felt like he was first-round good, but not top 5 good. Guess we will see how things play out. He's got some filthy stuff. If he can be more efficient then I think he's the type that could carry a team through a regional going Friday and Monday.

Childress looking solid early. As soon as he builds up enough arm stamina he needs to be starting Saturday or Sundays.
