  1. Past hour
  2. But everything I’ve been saying is mainly with this and last year combined. I’m not talking about year one. I’ve been speaking in hypotheticals with how poorly this season has started. We made a regional his first year with a lot of Kingston’s talent. I mentioned in one of my posts that almost all of what I’ve said could play out to be irrelevant by season’s end. Multiple years of not making the tournament meaning last year and this year if that’s what happens.
  3. I didn't say I'm good with it, but it was 1 year not 2 and we'll see how this year plays out. **** happens and the other teams are trying to win too.
  4. At the expense of not making an 8 out of 9 team conference tournament in our own back yard? Nah I’m not good with that. Did those other teams not have to deal with adversity as well?
  5. The 6-6 game was the one following SBU. After those 2 opening games, they won 3 out of the next 4, only shooting 67% from the line. The one game they lost, they shot 79%. FT % wasn't any more of a factor in the postseason run than it was in the regular season ....
  6. Eventually you have to cut ties. We stopped inviting the crazy uncle to Thanksgiving a long time ago .......
  7. He's been here 2 years. Made the NCAA Regional Year 1 and sucked last year. IT's already been pointed out that last year we had to replace our Top 3 Pitchers due to MLB draft as well as a couple of top hitters. We also lost several arms to injury. I don't recall any glaring "game management" issues. This year we have started as many as 5 or 6 Freshman/Soph in the batting order and our Saturday starter is a Freshman ( he may prove to be the Friday guy, but CBM may choose to leave the Senior there). Another freshman has looked overall good while a little inconsistent and 2 juniors returning from injury have looked good overall on the bump. The team is young, Mohl is young. Sometimes you just have to let it play out and see what happens
  8. I don’t think firing a coach after not making a regional two out of three years is a good reason. But not making your conference tourney two of those years is. For the reasons I mentioned before we should not be a bottom feeder in the aac. If you can’t string up enough talent in the state of Florida alone you’ve got problems ahead of you. Those other schools have found success because they’ve recruited well and they’ve used the talent they have well. If I recall correctly game management was also an issue last season, which has nothing to do with Florida talent and everything to do with coaching capability. Not winning with talent availability is only one aspect of why things haven’t worked out so far. If we show progress then most of what I’m saying is irrelevant. My biggest fear is that we haven’t shown much progress yet but instead regression.
  9. Northeastern, Marist, and FAMU may turn into world beaters but thus far they are 1-12 combined when not playing USF. I guess it depends on what the hopes for the season are. If you want an at large regional birth, you need to pick up some of these games. Not only that but the series vs Northeastern wasn’t even competitive. Northeastern is not Cal State Fullerton. They have had 2 regional appearances in the past 20 years.
  10. Went to the game... was fun... The generic sound effects of the players during the play is just... weird... sounds like a video game. I think I'd rather have silence or hear music. The crowd was chanting "We want Flowers!" most of the game. Seemed to piss off a few other people, saw a few other fans stand up and yell back The hissing and the arm motion is kinda weird... kinda fun too I guess. I dunno... was fun. Liked the music, liked the atmosphere, wasnt a bad way to spend a gorgeous afternoon. I'll go back. They only had the lower bowl open, none of the 200 level was open.
  11. Today
  12. I made another post and apologized. Yes, I did have you confused with someone else.
  13. I thought the seat was hot when we failed to qualify for the conference tournament last year. That should never happen.
  14. I don't look at brybull as a Troll, I just think he is your garden variety super pessimistic Bulls fan. You have to have both sides of the equation, so as long as he isn't a closet Knats fan, I like him, and will tell him how wrong he is as often as I can. If he is a USF fan for realz, then he is part of the family - our Dysfunctional family anyway!
  15. Ricky: You have me confused with someone else. I have never spoken to Michael Kelly.
  16. My overall point is that the sport is so diluted from there being so many options (see my response to Jtrue) that the idea that we should be good because we are a division one program in the state of Florida is just misguided. Here, just as everywhere else, programs have to be built by good people. For whatever reason and im sure if you dig deep enough you will find many, we just haven't. Those other programs that have been referenced in this thread have. firing coaches after three seasons because they don't make to the tourny 2 out of the 3 isn't gonna do it either. If he makes the conference tourny and the freshman are playing well he deserves a chance to build on that. He's only had two full recruiting cycles as the head guy and as we established, we don't get a crack at very many impact freshman and think he found two in this class.
  17. My overall point is that we aren't trending in the right direction with baseball and that's largely due to poor recruiting and coaching. Northeastern may not be better than us overall in history, but they came to Florida and handed it to us. We've done nothing to impress this season yet at all.
  18. well i'm not sure you looking at this right, of that 66%, how many of them were top 100 players coming out of high school. I think to see the point im making, you have to look at where top talent is going. Look at the percentage of the top 100 hs players in the state and see if they are getting drafted or going to JUCO. https://www.perfectgame.org/Rankings/Players/StateRankings.aspx?gyear=2019&state=FL Of the top 50 players in 2019 3 are on G5 rosters, 2 went to FIU and we saw the third one on the bump Saturday pitch an absolute gem. 5 are at Jucos the rest committed P5 or went pro.
  19. Yep pretty much....and the rest of the team is just isnt quite talented enough to overcome. People like brybull are too short sighted to understand this.
  20. Its a long season. And as bad as it lioks right now, he deserves the full season before decision is made. That said, the seat is getting HOT AS HELL!
  21. There isn't a JuCo in the nation that could hold Vanderbilt's jock right now. I don't get the statement that JuCo's are getting the second level of talent or even the idea that "first level" talent goes pro. 2018 MLB draft - 66% of those drafted went to a 4 year school 25% came out of HS 9% from JuCo And the last 25 years have basically been a split with the first overall pick being either a HS player or a 4 year player.
