I don't keep up much with college baseball coaching world. I would hope we could hire someone on par with Butch. Have you heard any names?

There has been some more chatter from more "in-the-know" State fans that Thompson builds his game for small ball, and that as the game transitions more and more that he has lost something.

Also, I'll bet its hard to work for Cohen. It usually is when it comes to most Type A, driven people.

ETA: Some think he was better off in the "dead bat" era. There we go. Edited for clarity I guess.

I really didn't have a clue who he was, not too big on college baseball these days.

I'm not going to pretend like I know. But it seems to me that his staff has gotten worse each year and he hasn't put a starter worth a damn on the mound in a while. Lack of consistency. But he's put several good bullpen arms in the pros. I'm not sure what falls on butch and what falls on Cohen.

Kendall Rogers seems to think we can hire someone quickly. He tweeted last night that he has spoken to some of the "elite" guys that have already said that if Butch leaves they would be interested.

My money is on Wes Johnson. Ties to arkansas and texas. Hell of a pitching coach resume for a younger guy

I can't wait for baseball season.

Weekends out in Swayze, a cold beer in my hand and the rebs inevitably going out in the regionals.

      I've said what I have to say about security clearance. trump is just being his usual pussy self.

      Do you support the banning of non left messengers on social media?    And losing a clearance isn't designed to silence anyone. The better question would be why was it active past his need to know? Is he a government contractor or employee with need to know sensitive government materials? As far as I can see the answer is no. So why does he have it still?

      As an aside does anyone practice shooting sitting on the ground? I tried it today and it's not easy. I was worried about losing the bullet so I set up 10 feet in front of the burm on the instructors range and tried falling back on the ground, draw, and fire. It's harder than it looks and it took a few moments for me to complete the task. I didn't draw as I was falling for fear of losing the pistol or having an ND. I could see someone being shocked by being blind sided needing a second or three to recover draw and fire.    Just an observation
