Next, you can look at this season from two totally different points of view.

1- what if we hadn't went on that 8 game win streak awhile back? This team really could have a horrible record (not that it's good now).

2- what if Tyler Johnson hadn't gotten hurt and we had won 2 of the 3 series that we lost? As bad as we have played at times, we could actually be leading the SEC right now had he not gotten hurt.
The third option is to look at it for what it is. If "ifs and buts" were candy and nuts we would all have a merry Christmas.

We did go on that winning streak and played fairly well during it but also played lesser competition for the most part. We still won the games we needed to. Every team has injuries, there should be some other guy on the staff we can come in and expect to get an out to end the game, but our guys couldn't get it done. It is what it is. In some of those games it didn't matter who was closing as the game was already out of hand, or we needed to score late to win.

On the point of midweek games....I was just restating what Holbrook said during his interview on the radio before the game last night - that mid week games weren't a big deal because conference play is what we will be judged on. I couldn't disagree more, but if that's the way he feels then it explains our less than stellar play in some of the mid week games and non conference series's. A couple of the early weekends we should have swept but gave up the last game which will hurt us in total wins come tournament time.

We can argue all day long about post season play (I hope we get in). But what seems obvious to me is that, from an elite program under Coach Tanner, our program has steadily declined under Coach Holbrook. In my opinion as it stands now, unless a coaching change is made, we will have good but not great teams going forward.

The baseball program went through this same process years ago when Coach Richardson left and Coach Raines came in. Coach Raines won a lot of games, but the program stagnated under his leadership. We were good but not elite. Coach Tanner came in and built the team back up. I think Coach Tanner needs to find another Coach Tanner.

I think we will probably end up a 2 or 3 seed in a regional but not making the postseason this year with our pitching and our talent would be a fireable offense, no questions asked.

Good things in a bad game:

We hit well and strung together quite a few hits. (Driving in those runners was another story). We were really tagging the ball in the early innings.
We made their pitchers pitch.
Defense after that first error was really good.

Ehhhhhhhhh yoou are searching for good. we left several runs on base in those first few innings by not Stringing together hits, we scattered hits.

Is there any scenario where Tanner would put the uniform back on for the rest of the season and take control to either evaluate where CH needs to step it up and shows him how or goes ahead and relieves him to right the ship and interim until a top notch coach is found?

I worry that waiting out the season end with CH doing the same ole thing will sour much needed future recruits.

I think we've had and have some great players that have under achieved under CH while we had some decent players that thrived under Tanner and dissolve under CH.

I just feel CH is squandering talent and we have to stop the bleeding now.

No way Ray comes back in any form to run the baseball team. It is very hard to rework the magic you once had after being gone for several years. It's like the old saying, "You can't go home, again." It is never the same.

He is doing what he wants to do and if he did try to wear both hats, then his AD job might suffer from split duties. Didn't Skip Bertman try that at LSU and fail?

Ray wanted to be AD and got the job. Sometimes that means doing something unpleasant, like letting people go, no matter the personal relationship or working relationship. Of course, by firing Chad, that would be an admission he made a poor hire. If he can't do that, then he needs to step down.

Honestly, I prefer Tanner to never come back and coach. There is no way he could ever live up to the image that most now have of him. The first time we got booted from a Regional, fans would revert back to how they were prior to 2010.

Seriously, it would be a no win situation for him and for our entire fanbase.

This is exactly why Tanner got out of coaching when he did. He never could have lived up to his own legend after the 3-year run we had.

I feel like it's not complicated. We haven't hit consistently since 2011. Not even the 2012 team could hit.
