Yep, both under pierce. God I hate Texas for taking him. I know I was pro Jewett early and even defended him relative to Pierce. But fellas, I was wrong wrong wrong.
I’m excited about football! Looking forward to spring practice.

Who would have thought SLU pitching was better than MSU.

Unless scholarship rules change I think this is what to expect regardless of who the coach is. Hard to tell a top rated kid to pay $60k a year to play baseball. When Jones was here we had loose transfer rules and the sec wasn’t putting as much of an emphasis on baseball like they do now.

Just wish I wasn't so slow to the party. And though I can't remember specifics I feel sure I clashed with you on it. You were definitely right

His inability to recruit pitchers has been his biggest shortfall.

Didn't the rules change this year? Or for the upcoming year? Seems like I remember seeing where academic money could now be stacked.

At any rate I don't even care about getting back to 2005 any more. I just want to be able to expect a regional every couple of years or so. Hard to even think of the highest level when you aren't even in the hunt for entrance to the game.

I was trying to change my mind on Jewett with the 15-2 start last year but it doesn’t look like it was sustainable

He had advantages at Vandy he doesn’t have here and is unable to adjust to get around them.

Not gonna happen. They are going to have to win the conference tournament. I would imagine if this team doesn't make the tournament, this will be the head coach's last year. And it should be.

Just so long as the ball doesn't bounce, the umpire is still calling it a strike. The last two strikes he called were about an inch above the plate.

From what I understand there hasn’t been much academic money allocated to baseball

Pierce was the right kind of hire. Hire a winner, somebody with experience who has been to regionals regularly. Winning at a smaller program with fewer resources is more analogous to winning at Tulane than Vandy or similar experience.

Losing Pierce to Texas stings because he was like their 8th choice. We only had him 2 years and I think it seemed like we'd get to keep him at least another year or two.

It’s going to take a big money donor or two to make that happen. Between Covid and Dannen not really focused on baseball I think anything short of a total collapse may keep him around another year.

That needs to change. TD hasn't seemed like a big baseball proponent. This is a chance to noticeably improve things by getting that shifted. We are talking about a few kids each year. Shouldn't be a heavy lift

Any idea what his contract looks like? He would be getting close to the end of the original deal unless he was extended last year
