Quinn actually has hung around longer than I would have thought. 7 years mostly as a backup, but unlike most busts, still collecting nice paychecks. ...

I don't have a dog in this debate, but I do think you have a good perspective on this and sounds like you are doing the right thing. The comments about travel ball being expensive and not worth the money does not ring true if your kid loves it and has a burning desire to be the best he can be. The...

Yeah, I can't tell if the people who say that: (1) don't pay attention to college football, or (2) pay attention, but are idiots when it comes to some facts.
ND hasn't fared well in BCS games, but they've been no worse than 10-2 in all of those BCS games. Meanwhile, as you've mentioned, there h...

Good for Andy, who is a local boy and a good guy. But it is a little surprising to go with someone without any prior coaching experience. PM clearly views this role as having a big impact in recruiting. His scouting connections will be very helpful. The coaching is the unknown. ...

There is a difference between a school's fanbase, and relative national interest in a school. General sports fans don't give a rat's arse about UNC, and wouldn't (and haven't) spent 2 seconds following this story line. But I guarantee you general sports fans would follow this storyline at ND, USC,...

Your memory of Skip's teams is pretty poor. The base running was not good. For example, rewatch the 1996 title game. It was abysmal in that game. Fortunately, Warren Morris stepped up. ...

I don't necessarily agree with this. Yes, the expectations for football and baseball are very high, but I think football is an easier gig. There are only a few elite football programs that can even come close to LSU's access to top recruits. LA produces a load of elite talent, and no one can real...

If we give credit to Dunn for all of our pitching success, then he needs to share the blame on not pleading to yank McCune. Of course Mainieri makes the final call but Dunn plays a role. ...
