I watched and was irritated the whole game...I just couldn't believe what I was watching...no passion or want in this team right now and i truly don't understand.

I kept getting text updates and finally just stopped checking. And I'll be honest, I'm not going to sit out in wind like that. Nope...not going to happen.

I still love baseball. I always will. But when I'm going to be more irritated than enjoying the game, I'm not going to subject myself to it. I will say I enjoy it more when Little Man is watching with me. That may have something to do with it.

But you're right. No passion or desire on this team. Their heads are not in the game at all. And I hate to break it to folks, but that is not something coaches can fix. Only the players can fix that.

I also noticed that the players seemed very nonchalant when we are losing. That just isn't what USC fans are accustomed to. I also agree that it has absolutely nothing to do with coaching. The players have to take some ownership in their poor play.

AMEN about it has absolutely nothing to do with coaching...the players have to make their minds up they WANT to win and be excited to be in that dugout...if you come together as a team and develop chemistry the wins start coming.

If only I could go back in time and have the talent that a Destino (or numerous others) has and be given the opportunities that they are.

Sadly, so many of these guys just don't get it.

How does it have nothing to do with coaching. Sit their butt on the bench if they aren't giving it their all.

Who else is supposed to motivate them week in and week out?!

The team looks like they're going through the motions and don't really care if they win or lose. No passion, no grit, nothing but lackluster opportunistic baseball.

While some players can take it upon themselves to be a leader and build team chemistry, there are ways coaches can inspire it as well. Remember how Muschamp made the whole football team participate in drills at Fort Jackson? Or Martin's "rope" tug-of-war analogy?

yeah, me too.

Some people are better left being assistants.

Those players during the national championship years brought in the energy themselves...Ray had nothing to do with it...he said so, he let them act silly and act certain ways. They brought it all themselves...had fun, etc. It was different. Players need to bring the chemistry and the want...if you can't do that then get off the field.

Which was very much AGAINST his coaching style.

People going to make every excuse for Chad. Don't matter if we lose out. Some of y'all will still defend him.

If he would just own up when he makes blatant mistakes, I'd have 1000 times the respect for him.

A college baseball player shouldn't need motivation at all...you wanted to play for this University then bust your butt and do it. Show the passion for playing. Others have done it...it's easy.

I do defend Coach Holbrook and will continue to do so until he decides to leave or this University decides it's time to let him go. He's the coach of a team I pull for so I will NEVER put him down...Tanner started coaching in 96 and they went to Omaha in 02...amazing isn't it that the all mighty coach Ray Tanner had down years for a long time.
