    I would never say that our players don’t care or don’t have the ability. I absolutely believe they do. It is crazy that all our teams perform unless it matters.

    Mediocre

    Itís who we are

    And Iím sure the radio guys will say that itís the fans fault for having too high of expectations for Tech.

    Burroughs set the expectations at the beginning of the year. I heard him say he expected this team to make a regional and do well.

    Next year we’ll be lucky to make the tournament. Leal, Miller, Robbins are all gone. If we win 25 games I’ll be surprised. This in year 4 of the Burroughs experiment.

    Burroughs is not the guy to advance the Tech program. As stated here and previously in countless treads his history is well established... he is who he is, his teamís are what they are. He doesnít win post season, his teamís donít overachieve. Besides that I think Burroughsí fails miserably in the capabilities of his assistant coaches aka player seasonal improvements. Nobody on Techís team really improved in a considerable way this season. Quite to the contrary, as we all witnessed, our players man for man got worse when it mattered most. I donít know why but thereís something seriously wrong with the psyche of a Burroughsí team. The guys just donít seem to play up for each other. I suspect Burroughs will be back because Tech is in a tight spot with nothing much of a returning team and no facility to play in, so we canít hollow out everything. But what he can do is get some better assistant coaches in here to make an improved go at next season.

    We started the tournament in 3rd and left 1st worst loser! That is unacceptable!

    When LB was hired I posted my doubts asking what had he accomplished as a head coach to warrant the Tech job? Well, predictably, I was taken to task, called all kinds of names, some of them not very nice...one poster defended his record at NSU stating he had inherited a dumpster fire and I was told to give him a chance. I don't have to watch a team play very long to get a feel for a coach's tendencies and ability. I know, I'm stupid and focus on silly stuff like basic fundamentals and all you know-it-alls, the same ones who clobbered me for daring to question Simm's coaching...

    remember this? "I saw Coach Simm putting in the new seats at Love Field...he's a great coach!" I retorted with, hire him as director of facilities and then hire a real baseball coach. Oh, D80, you're so negative, give Simm a chance...

    I'll ask again, what was in LB's resume' that made y'all think he'd make a good coach for us?

    I’ll vouch for you on that one. You called it.

    Re: 5/23 @ 9am vs. Rice (Elimination Game)

    Burroughs post game comments:

    "Gotta get players in here that can come down to this tournament and make some noise" (Uh you recruited the current players)

    "I"ll wear it (the blame) put it on me" (Uh.....who other than you should wear it)

    The same guys won a bunch of games in a row earlier in the season and was ranked. I guess they all lost their abilities as the season progressed.

    Re: 5/23 @ 9am vs. Rice (Elimination Game)

    A lot of us were surprised and underwhelmed that the player's favorite and many booster's pick was not selected as HC. It was done and most figured he could not screw up the groundwork Goff had left him. Then the 2016 USM series in Ruston, then the mis-handling of our pitching staff (primarily Nate Harris), running out of innings very often, obvious conflict with his co-head coach (most fans forgot about this).

    The only improvement I saw in 2019 is that we did not make as many base running errors as we did the first two years.

    I donít think anyone ever gets a do-over like that. Big check and all, Goff still made a career mistake. I wonder what mightíve been if heíd stuck around.

    Kind of like all these NFL coaches that lose at one place and miraculously get hired as a HC somewhere else only to suffer the same results. We do a great job hiring people that others schools don’t want. That’s who we are!

    Re: 5/23 @ 9am vs. Rice (Elimination Game)

    Recruiting talent is a no brainer. The problem is that every other school is doing the exact same thing and in most cases their calling card reads better than Techís. So once we get the best talent we can, albeit probably a lesser level of it than a good many programs around us, itís going to come down to the coaching our recruits get at Tech in order for them to get better. Thatís where the shortcomings set in, Burroughs and his staff donít develop Ďtalentí and they really donít develop it on a noteworthy scale. Our teams under Burroughs donít continue to improve throughout the year or even from year to year. Quite the opposite actually, historically we get steadily worse towards the end of the year. And in the case of this year even with a senior experienced team we werenít as good as last year. Talent only matters under competent coaching.
