    Maybe that helps offset the mess JC has made of the football program...(but not really).

    Stop.

    Exactly?..and the thing is this board and others have become so sensitive to anything that doesn?t adhere to the super positive narrative that it?s actually more fun to troll ya?ll than to try to have an intelligent conversation?..I?m not invested here so scooby or whoever can delete my account since y?all have capitulated to this current cancel culture BS??see y?all in Omaha

    If we lost last night I think the responses are different. Unfortunatelty fans don?t look at the growth they look at the mistakes that are going to happen. We aren?t competing against weakness usually top tier talent. I?m not gonna look back but check the melts after Mizzou and in the SEC tournament. The dissatisfaction was there and it was strong. Now 1 win last night attitude changes for some. Funny thing is the hate will show up again in next 2 weeks if we don?t win it all. Then if we do win it all we will have several bitching next year if we aren?t top tier. Fans be fans and it?s actually a shame sometimes

    He could win our first national title in school history and people would still try to argue he’s not that great.

    I don't know about that. MSU fans tend to be extremely loyal to coaches that reach or exceed expectations. See Vic Shaeffer and Ron Polk. Heck- Rick Stansbury and Jackie. That's why it takes a long time to get rid of a MSU coach who is in obvious decline sometimes.

    He should have had Harding in the Game 3 role all year, and Cumbest should have been playing LF all year like I said many times on this board. Other than that, he did a great job this season.

    As far as being elite, as the Zen Master said, we'll see.

    Fans put too much weight into individual post seasons in general. 2019 or this year could have ended differently pretty easily. If Notre Dame had made fewer errors in game one and we got swept, how much differently would people feel about Lemonis, even though he'd essentially be the same coach? Now obviously those what ifs can be played on either side and tend to balance out over time, but they certainly don't balance out in one series.

    If he wins the NC he will be the greatest coach in Mississippi History. Not Mississippi State but Mississippi.

    Lem is a great coach and I don't think anyone could or would doubt that. He makes some head scratching decisions at times, but more times than not he's been proven right. I really feel like this season could go down as his best coaching job for years to come regardless of how it ends. I mean just think of what we've gone through as a team that he's guided us through: COVID, Bednar being injured the first 5 weeks, Cerrantola issues, The Hatcher situation, Skinner/Cumbest debates, Mizzou, SECT shellacking, and finally the Sunday game against ND. That's a ton of crap that's been thrown at him just to get the team to Omaha.

    I've been hard at times this year on him, and deservedly so on a couple of things such as Hatcher still playing and Cumbest not playing, but to step back and take a look at what all we've made it through it's pretty impressive we're one of the last 8 teams standing.

    But it didn’t happen. They made those errors just like we shit the bed against Mizzu. Who gives a shit, we’re going to Omaha…

    This shit about yea but what if this and that would have happened we would be sitting at home right now. I swear we are our own worst enemy then wanna bitch about not getting respect from anyone.

    Only 8 teams make it to Omaha. We are one of them. Nothing else matters now.

    ^^This. Every team makes errors. Heck, we've dropped some games this season because of Errors from the left side of our infield. So I don't feel sorry for Notre Dame. They had three chances to prove they were the better team and couldn't get it done.

    Lemonis is good. He makes mistakes, but all baseball coaches do. We cannot miss the forest through the trees here. The dude has put us in position to win not one, but two national championships in the same amount of years. That is impressive, especially coming off of the 3 previous coaches in 3 years business. Regardless of talent that is here or isn't here. Regardless that he didn't start Cumbest for over half the season. Even with all of that, we are still 4-5 wins away from winning the entire dang thing for the second year in a row.

    Hell, they probably are the better team. Arkansas is better than NC State. No doubt. But, you have to do it on the field. And neither did.
    Arizona is better than Ole Miss though. We can all agree with that.

    Bunko did a pretty good coaching job getting his team within a game of Omaha after losing his #1

    Lemon did an even better job getting this team to Omaha with the hitting line-up we have. This Punch and Judy squad found a way to get it done.
    Just out here kicking rocks
