No one should blame Mark if we don't make it this year. As Cack stated in a previous post our program has been in a steady decline since Chad took over the program. I am most concerned about our possible lack of pitching talent. Unless there is tremendous improvement in this area we are in serious trouble this year and Mark should definitely not be blamed for this. He is inheriting a very shakey pitching staff except for Hill and most of our incoming recruits are also inherited from Chad.

I think Mark is the right man for the job just as I thought Muschamp was the right man for football. Just give the man time to get his own recruits on the field.

If you look just at position players, Kingston is inheriting a talented team without a lot of holes. Definitely a tournament team.

There is some quality pitching as well, just not nearly as deep. We will need a lot of reserves to step up, along with some new guys. If we can find a decent three-man rotation and a couple of reliable bullpen arms, we can make some noise at the end of the year.

We were also discussing where our program stands or doesn't stand in the elite pecking order (pun intended). I feel we are higher up that pecking order than I think you do.

I thought I was the only one on the "You can't blame Kingston for everything year one bandwagon."

I don't deny that we're one of the elite programs in the nation. I'm saying under Holbrook, the diamond has lost some shine.

I would say, off the top of my head, the teams I think of when I think of College Baseball are (in no order) Carolina of course, Rice, Cal State Fullerton, Ok State, Florida, Texas, Florida State, and Miami. I may have missed a few, but in my life of following Baseball those are the top dogs that if they fall, it won't be long.

An elite program should expect to be in the playoffs every year.
