Tyler Johnson might have saved us a game or two. Main problem though is that our offense does score enough, even against pitching that isn't all that good. Tonight was lost it was one inning of fielding incompetency an no insurance runs to work with. It's not like they were lighting up either Crowe or Bowers.

Not really on the fire a coach mid band wagon, but how many years do you give him? Who takes his place?

He knew how high expectations were when he took the position but he was also handed the keys to a well oiled machine with some of, if not the best, facilitates in college baseball, how much slack do you give him?

Would not want to be holbrook right now...I know he's feeling the pressure...I'm sure he's stressed and his team drops the ball when he needs them to play their best. That being said I think you have to bring in TJ even though Crowe had been holding them at bay.

This. I've supported Chad the whole way, but support is slowly fading away. Yes he followed a legend, but he has not proven himself since being promoted. He knew the program, and knew what was expected of him. It'd be one thing if the program was in shambles when he took over but as you said above, it was a well oiled machine.

Nothing against Bowers as I think he will be a great one for us, but with a fresh Tyler Johnson, in an almost must win game, I see no reason to go to anyone else tbh.


Catching up on this thread after following the game earlier. I was thinking the exact same thing.

Actually several of your comments on this thread have been spot on. Can you handle that?

Chad Holbrook on not going to Tyler Johnson in the 9th,"There are some limitations on Tyler that I'm not going to discuss. It doesn't help for our opponents to know what our limitations are in regards to using him this weekend."

Yep....although to be honest, just telling the media that "there are some limitations on Tyler" in effect, actually tells MSU that Tyler is limited in some fashion anyways. If I was an opposing coach and I read that, I tell my guys on my team that if at all possible, work Johnson when he takes the mound, work the at-bats to high pitch counts and try to force Johnson to earn his outs. Of course, its all moot if Tyler throws nothing but flaming ropes past the opposing bats and they all go down in 3 strikes out of 3 pitches.

But still, there were several reasons that you could have given - even fake reasons like the batter matchups weren't optimal - other than saying Tyler has "limitations". But whatever.....

We've already lost 2 games this series, so with only 1 game remaining, I'm not sure why he feels the need to hide anything.

Oh well....

Chad Holbrook won't be here next year. That reign is over.

We could get Monte Lee - Clemson des not care about other sports and they don't want to spend a lot of money on a baseball coach.

But Chad deserves the chance to turn it around this year. He needs to show he can coach - make some line-up adjustments and make good in-game decisions. I have not been impressed so far, but his players have not helped him out much - they need to start hitting and stop the late fielding meltdowns. Time to step up.
Clemson would not hand over Monte Lee to us in a million years. It's too bad what's happened to our program and I'm glad some are finally seeing the light. The signs were there when he bunted Pankake in his first year against UNC.

No one is arguing that this team is not performing to expectations. But when some poster makes a dumb ass statement about this team and Clemson being on its way to a baseball National Championship in the same sentence, the stupidity begs a response.

Interesting that CH was coaching 3rd yesterday and says he may the rest of the year to try and make the dugout less tight.

They have no say in it. We offer they counter offer. It's all on Lee if he would go or not.
