    Great point. Yes, I've thought about it. Having two conference double headers is almost a guarantee of two conference losses.

    - I've noticed a lot of Tech fans in this thread accepting these poor performances with a "well, that's just baseball", or "we didn't hit the ball well last night. It happens".

    - Or how about the guy in post #16 that says "Coaches can't make kids focus, work hard and so on and so fourth. Baseball is a grind, especially when you have class. Not everyone of those guys is capable of showing up to the park every day with 100% focus, ready to compete their tails off."

    SAY WHAT? LOL! Did I just read that correctly? QUICK! Someone please tell all the GOOD baseball teams playing NCAA baseball that Baseball is a grind, especially when you have to go to class. Poor babies......they have to go to class.

    Seriously people?

    Yes, baseball is 62 games, so it is a longer season. But most of you wouldn't be near as "accepting" if several of Konkol's boys were only shooting 30% from the free throw line, or if a couple of Skip's prized WR's were fumbling 4 times every game. Nope.....most of you would be ready to scalp the head coach.

    I'm not here to recommend that Burroughs be scalped. However, I do believe he should be held to the same standard that we expect from our other head coaches. Yes, baseball is a little different. But not THAT much different. It's still about getting 18-22 year old kids to perform the sport they love at a high level. Since Burroughs inherited a senior laden team with a strong history of success, I would suggest that he deserves to feel a little heat.
    ...sounds like we need to score more points!
    I'm an asshole! What's your excuse?

    Same goes for the opponent, we need to start winning some of the battles and soon or we will have a season lost....
    Team has seemed flat, pitching unimpressive (except Harris), hitting streaky since the big ULaLa win!

    Re: Lane Burroughs

    Just to re-emphasize my original point...there was nothing in Burroughs' resume' to make someone think he was some "great" coach waiting for his chance. His best year at NSU he was just 31-23, 20-8 in SLC play. That's 11-15 in OOC. NSU finished 2nd in what is usually a pretty good baseball league. Yet! they did not get an at-large bid to the playoffs. Their RPI was way too low because they had played a crappy schedule, and still managed to be just 8 games over .500.

    If LB had had NSU in the playoffs, winning 40 games a year, beating some quality teams now and then, then, yeah, I would say he was worth hiring. In fact, had he done that, Tech may not have gotten him. Some P5 would have waved more money at him. But, as it was NSU was mediocre under him. Why do any of you think his resume' is so great to warrant his hiring here? Do we really want to be hiring mediocre Southland Conference coaches? Just asking....

    On the flip side, he did coach 8 years at USM, and they were pretty good during that time(6 NCAA appearances). But, he was not head coach there.

    Re: Lane Burroughs

    I can understand about leaving them in to long. Who would you bring in besides Harris that you'd have confidence in? As others have stated, how did an all conference pitcher just fall apart? Is it mental? Mechanics? Has to be an answer other than just "he's in a slump."
    Tonight IMHO is a huge test for HCLB. Can you mentally prepare your team and yourself to go on the road and take a must win series from an opponent who's down right now? Rice is playing terrible baseball this year, and any way you slice it, this a MUST WIN series for this team. It's only going to get harder from here on out.

    Goes well with our mediocre Southland AD

    This team went from hot to not so fast something's not right. My fear is a chemistry/personality/philosophy problem. Whatever you want to call it, as long as it's not "its baseball".

    From the outside looking in, it's almost impossible to know what the problem is.

    No it's not. The problem has been starting pitching.

    Actually I think Hasler may have a tired arm...

    I think he threw over 100 innings in juco last year then he had summer ball and fall ball

    I think Unk has some mechanics issues since he is not getting the ball down and the ground outs like the end of last year

    There is a reason Burroughs is loading up on arm talent for next year and we are now seeing why

    And we are also seeing why the coaches picked us 5th in the preseason poll
