Plain and simple. You boys gave up!! Very disappointing to witness this year.
Littlewood is an excellent coach and I’m sure he will bounce back next
Wow, a down/bad year and people want to dump the coach? Yes it was a very
disappointing season after such a great season last year, Littlewood has as
much credibility as any coach on the wcc. He has done a great job and will get
things back on track next year.
Scores,No doubt my man!! They need kids that want to work and play.
Pitching needs to be recruited year in year out. You can't lose 2 guys and
your whole team suffers a year later. Littlwood needs to pack his lunch and hit
the road. This year is pathetic we were picked to win the WCC and now we
won't win another series. Looks like it's back to sub par baseball
for another 10 years. This is getting so old.
What we see here is the same thing that we have seen in our Revenue Sports (BB
and FB) for several years. We recruit coaches that we can pay UNDER MARKET which
means that BYU is typically that coach's first D 1 Gig... No one knows them
and consequently quality recruiting is hard (to impossible). 4* and 5 * players
(even LDS players) want to play where they can achieve and be noticed and
that's in a P5 Conference.BYU has had opportunities to get
invites but our strategy has been horrible. Our AD has NO CLOUT with P5 Peers
and P5 Commissioners. In fact, it doesn't appear that he has much clout
with our own BOTs... Why? Because when we were courted by both the B12 and even
the AAC we showed up for negotiations with a gaggle of Lawyers and
Representatives from our BOTs (showing no trust in our AD to negotiate with his
Peers and Commissioners from the interested Conference)... Holmoe thus had to be
an empty suit at the table.Had Ainge or even Young been the AD we
would be in one of these Conferences today. Simply put, We need a "take
charge" AD or we will never be in a P5 Conference. That means apprentice
coaching and poor recruiting into perpetuity. Sorry, but it's the truth.
Lack of pitching and hitting. When you lose your top pitcher and hitters like
Bronson Larson and Colton Shaver, and not replace them with equally good talent,
this is what you get. A complete meltdown from last year. Time for Coach
Littlewood to get on the recruiting trail...big time.
