    Lane Burroughs

    In four complete seasons at NSU he was 113-113 with zero post season appearances. I mentioned this fact when he was hired. He was 16-40 in his first season there, thus 97-73 in the last three. His best year was 2015, 31-23 overall and 20-8 in the SLC, good enough to finish 2nd. He is, AT BEST, a mediocre coach. Do we want a mediocre coach?

    I think we should cut bait now, and start the search for a real baseball coach.

    Sometimes I think you are the most negative poster on here. Today you just confirmed it.

    He's doing better than the new coach at Alabama. Let's give him a chance.

    I agree with D80, this team is heavily senior-laden. There really is NO excuse for what is happening. This team is going to have to really turn it around just to make the conference tournament.

    Next year has a very good chance to be just awful. He will be given a pass next season, a la HCSH, due to losing 186 seniors and possibly Diaz through the draft. So, if HCLB is not let go this year, he will be guaranteed three more years after this one, due to "rebuilding".

    If this team doesn't make the conference tournament, the administration will have plenty of evidence to let HCLB go.

    I just can't imagine a much better scenario for a new HC to walk into.

    They are all Seniors. The pitchers should be performing much much better than they are.

    Re: Lane Burroughs

    Also, exactly HOW did Tech's lack of pitching keep Tech's hitters scoreless over EIGHT innings against mostly mediocre bullpen pitchers?

    Why was Tech's best pitcher not used in the appropriate manner last night? He was available for one inning. One silver bullet that was not used properly.

    Of course they should, but they are not. Why? We have the same pitching coach we had last year. That's not on our HC. I don't believe it is on Oz either. The guy labled as our ace has been off to put it mildly. Linck was solid last year and he has struggled. We needed both those guys to pitch as well as they did last year. They have not. Add to that that our relievers are making mistakes and it boils down to pitching.

    We didn't hit the ball well last night. It happens. w/out looking I think it has happened to us three times this year.

    Our coaches didn't want to use Nate last night. Beating Rice on Friday is much more important than a road win over McNeese. Many of us had last night marked as a likely L before the season started.

    Re: Lane Burroughs

    I hear you and understand where you are coming from. But, my question is, what is the use of a HC if he can't influence his team? Especially a heavily senior-laden team?

    ALL losing baseball teams can blame hitters or pitching for losing when they are not performing. So, what use is the HC? How exactly do we see the worth of a HC?

    Casey Sutton, he is a senior, his decline is not due to a new HC. Same pitching coach btw.

    Are you talking about Nate Harris?
    If Harris would have pitched an inning last night, after throwing 100+ pitches on sunday, in his first start, when we expect him to start Friday night I would be calling for a new head coach.

    Get out of here with that nonsense.

    Then you'd better start calling. The man himself said that Harris was available for one inning. Just going on what the HC said.

    Then what good is a coach, Head or Pitching? Why are coaches hired and fired if it is just the player not performing?

    If he would have thrown I sure would. Not that it would do any good though lol.

    In my opinion we cannot have Harris starting on the weekend and then coming in to throw one mid week inning. We need to win weekend series and make the dang conf. tourney. Winning the tourney gets us to the post season, not winning mid week games.
