    Been reading too much of shotgun/colonelkangs shit. How does this guy get a pass on arm injuries that are 3x what fox are and he's blasted I'll never know.

    Maybe he is to blame for the injuries... no idea. I don't blame foxhall for injuries either. I think wes is a great assistant, so I'd prefer him over jake if we go that route. If these 2 are our options, I'd just keep lemonis though, and I'm not a lemonis fan.

    Hopefully Selmon is a good enough AD to have a coach nearly in place if he makes that move.

    Wes also has zero head coaching experience. Major risk for us given our situation.

    We HAVE TO get this next hire right. Our baseball coaching hires have been a complete circus my fan lifetime except for Pat McMahon getting promoted.

    Yeah, Wes caught unmitigated hell when he was here. People were ready to run him out on a rail due to the injury epidemic.

    Would the next coach look at the fact that we kick the ball around like a Tball team and we are historically two of the worst teams in the 150 year history was the last two years? Not much on arm injuries to point to this year either. A lot of teams have it worse just in the SEC.

    Honestly, if our current players like him, that may be a good reason to get rid of him. We need our next coach to be someone the players don't think is a super great guy.

    I get that we have some really talented players on this roster. But after the last 2 years, we don't need someone to come in and try to just add some transfers and roll. We need some purging from the roster, too. Yes, it may mean we continue being quite bad for another year or two, but I'd rather make wholesale changes than try to keep patching it. We brought in some good transfers and a good freshman class this year, and it did absolutely nothing for us. The culture has some problems, and we need to fix those problems.

    I heard that some of the player parents are not pleased at all with Lemo. I have no idea what this means as the guy would not elaborate.

    To be fair, baseball parents are the WORST! Their kid strikes out, it isn't his fault. Ever!!! Losing just adds more fuel to the fire.

    I heard the exact opposite....

    Unfortunately the days of building a team through recruiting are over. Until they fix the transfer/portal the way this is the way teams will be constructed. One way is that every freshmen should be required to be at the school until they are Juniors or they are released by their coach. Just like they used to do.

    I disagree. The portal should be for plugging holes. Not building a team. That core comes from your high school recruits.

    I heard this team is completely disfunctional from the coaches down. We actually sat next to a parent at Bama and they said that the team was just a mess, coaches and players.

    It should be. But in the world of instant gratification where every freshman and his/her parent think they should be an instant starter the building of a core team is kaput. Thats why I stated that they need to go back to the old model/
