    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 year.

    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.

    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.
