re: SEC Baseball RPI - 5/9/19 - Cornelius
[quote]Yep, need to be at least 13-17 in conference to get consideration[/quote] Will be interesting to see what happens to Florida if they get to 13-17 in conference. Kentucky was sitting in the same spot last year and got left out, even with 16 Q1 wins. By comparison, Florida only has 9 at the ...

re: Baseball fans only. - Cornelius
[quote]Vandy needs to get the bullpen issues straightened out outside of Tyler Brown in order to make a deep run. That is the weak link. [/quote] Agreed. Will be interested to see how they use Hickman in the postseason. He was impressive in relief against Auburn. ...

re: What baseball recruiting advantages does Vandy have on the rest of the SEC? - Cornelius
[quote]If they aren’t getting degrees and the have sub par facilities compared to State Ark OM LSU etc why are top recruits nationally so interested in going there[/quote] Don't confuse a small(er) stadium with a lack of facilities. I would bet that Vanderbilt's baseball support facilities are amo...

re: 2019 Coaching Search Thread - Cornelius
Offers to other coaches just don't make sense if you are pursuing Beard, which is why I don't think they have happened. You might be able to slow play Musselman, but you can't slow play Marshall. You certainly don't make him a low ball offer either. If Marshall is your guy, and he has interest,...

re: I told y'all we weren't getting Kelvin Sampson - Cornelius
If the Kellen as head coach in waiting stipulation is true, then I think Yuracheck got this one right. That's a non-starter for me. Not only for the son of the coach, but one who has zero head coaching experience. Can't blame Kelvin for wanting to help his son's career, but a better parenting d...

re: Is Chris Beard still unproven? - Cornelius
Most people (myself included) didn't know who he was until he ended up at UALR and worked a minor miracle there in 2016. That same season, Mike went 16-16. But hey, it wasn't a losing season, so there's that. I recall plenty of people wanting to get rid of Mike at that time and not let Beard leav...

re: Florida Baseball = non-factor? - Cornelius
[quote]That was definitely a beat down this weekend. Vandy outscored Fla 34-6.[/quote] It’s about damn time. Seems like they’ve been kicking our arse since 2011. Probably couldn’t have had a tougher two opponents opening the conference schedule. They’ll get it figured out. ...

re: Vandy fires Bryce Drew - Cornelius
[quote]My opinion is the AD is new and wants to ride or die his way. Drew's record was terrible with potential for the future but the guy would rather make the change.[/quote] I absolutely respect the decision. 0-19 gives him plenty of cover to make the move. AD is a basketball guy, so I hope he ...

re: Vandy fires Bryce Drew - Cornelius
[quote]The team this year had more problems than Drew. Your best player, probably best ever, gets hurt in game 4. Your team basically has one guy on it who had ever shown a modicum of reliability on the court. The rest were youngsters. Shittu clearly has the athletic ability but the dude is stunning...

A little mixed on the Drew firing, but I have to give credit to the new AD for not messing around. Big move for only being 50 days in. ...
