    Miller is taking on pitchers and catchers after splitting it with Fouts last year

    McLeod has been added to the staff
    Looks like LB got a 5 year extension.

    This is looking more and more like how Tech managed Holtz and we all know how that played out over time. Obviously the one big difference is that Burroughs is actually accomplishing some things of significance at Tech where Holtz just settled for pretending to try. Hopefully and I do believe it to be true at this point is that generally speaking Burroughs manages his players’ efforts better than Holtz ever did

    Is it true that Gaspard is retiring?

    LB's true worth, his true value, will be revealed next year. He has to completely rebuild the team, virtually from scratch. We'll see how the Diamond Dawgs do. I am willing to give LB this chance to prove he should remain Tech's coach.

    Now, what will be the measure to judge him by? A winning record? Winning 30 games? Guess the expectations will depend on the make-up of the roster, how much experience there is to work with.

    His true worth, like Holtz, will be revealed by whether or not he gets a promotion to a money school in the next few months.

    Otherwise he's just gonna keep taking us to a 0-2 regional every few years. I guess most people will be ok with that.

    After the last loss Burroughs said that the team had run out of gas. That was true in the sense that they’d been burnt out having to win every game down the stretch to try to make a regional like he pretty much promised after last years losing season. This end of the season meltdown seems to be routine with LB’s teams and the reason why is because essentially all season long he plays 8 fielders, so by the end they’re half hurt and all worn out. More player development and not playing the same catcher almost every game has to happen to extend the life of his teams.

    Coming off two regionals in the last three years leaves no excuse for not having a winning record and winning 30 games. Having a chance to get hot in May is huge. A repeat of 2023 in unacceptable. He MUST find some pitching. Find more Ballard type players and please, no more guys who could not make it in the SEC.

    And just like that Tech has another X LSU outfielder in Zeb Ruddell. We’ll see how he compares to the other X LSU guys Drost & Safford. I’ve got my fingers crossed.

    He batted .205 which sounds comparable to his brother, Drost and Safford… and had 35 SO in 98 at bats (35%). Meanwhile Ruddell from LSU batted .200 with a 30% strike out record. Tech needs better.
