    If you are really good, you'll be playing pro ball soon. Better programs = better coaching. Is it best to be a great player on a bad team or a good player in a great program? When your team is bad, the other teams rest their best pitchers meaning you are not always faced with the best competition and the players are not consistently playing against the best.

    Too bad kid. The only way to get to Omaha is to buy a ticket. Bring back Bobby Noel

    BYU has great facilities for baseball and capable players.

    They beat a top 10 team on the road and then drop games at home against teams they should be beating. They go on the road and get blown out by a team they have beaten earlier in the year.

    Who's responsible?

    Do you get rid of the facilities? Do you get rid of the players?

    The players get to play based upon performance.

    What is the performance criteria for the coaching staff?

    In business and in sports, you either make excuses or you make it happen.

    BYU Baseball appears to have settled for excuses.

    To much talent to be this bad at BYU, this is the right time to make at change at the top. New league new coach. The 80's were the best years of the last 30. When did BYU last go to a regional?

    What a great job for coach to do this kind of work. Sounds like the kid has a bright future. Its nice to see a kid choose a school for more reasons than going to the big schools. Great choice, great education, and hopefully a great career in the bigs.

    He must want what BYU has to offer. One of the Worlds Best Educations.

    In Baseball it is Not what you do in College its what you do in Rookie League, AA that matters. So you want to get the Best Education you can.

    Like the NCAA says Most Players go on to Regular Jobs.

    The Pac 12 will be just that a Pack. It is always best to stay out of the Pack, either ahead or behind and on the outside. Airs Freacher and it stinks less. You will get seen regardless. Sub 4 sec 40, and you can go to Witty Witty JC and get Drafted. Hit .400 anywhere and the Rader is out.

    So go ahead and go to BYU.

    Vance. One recruit is not enough. I loved BYU baseball in the 80's. We can be great again. Appparently not with you as head coach. BYU, lets move move on. Cut our losses. Try someone else. We can be great again.
