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.
Careful...here come the "Tanner inherited a dumpster fire compared to what CCH inherited" cries - granted true, but still. ;)

But when you bring up the 2005-2009 drought, many conveniently forget that they were saying the same things about CRT that they are saying about CCH now.

Can't believe that y'all are wasting g breath again st these Holbrook-haters tbh.

Their attacks are weak and somewhat lacking in imagination.

Every time we lose, blame the coach.

Bad offense? Blame the coach because All Americans strike out.

Poor baserunning? Blame the coach because despite the baserunner not watching their base coach, it is still somehow their fault.

Missed or dropped flyball? It's the coaches fault for recruiting the guy, even if he is an All American.

12 hits and lose a 1 run game? The coaches fault that the other team scored.

Simply put, it is easy, lazy and weak minded to blame the coach every time a player doesn't perform up to expectations.

It was a cold, windy night, the series started on a weeknight, the stands were mostly empty, and I just don't think our guys came out motivated. But I am glad they showed a little fight towards the end.

The interference call after the runner got hung up, followed by the missed fly ball that cleared the bases, were both killers.

No worries - get the commode odors tonight!

you just named a lot of things that coaches should be teaching, and well with your attitude towards what you believe coaching is or isnt, you basically think coaches do nothing.

Even something as simple as dropping pop flys or not looking at a base coach is disciple which falls on the head coach

poor plate approach is the fault of a hitting coach.

I coach (another sport), and granted havent been doing it that long, but getting players motivated still falls on the coach. The days i come out tired and less inspired i usually leave practice mad at myself because our practice reflects that. Someone in that staff has to find a way to motivate those players, or the leaders of that team to find that passion.

Don't forget the fans - a lot of energy comes from them and that motivates the team.

But not last night. Just a miserable night. Everyone needs to forget about basketball and foosball now - it is baseball season!

Vandy 1st: Schmidt on the mound for USC

Clarke Schmidt doing Clarke Schmidt things..... 10 pitches, 3 outs, 2 K's




YardCock 1st: NO SCORE

Matt Williams = 1 pitch, 1 out

Jonah Bride = 2-1 count, weak chopper to 3rd, 2 easy outs

Alex Destino = 3-2 count, foul, flyball to LF, 3 away



No score at the end of 1.

Vandy 2nd: NO SCORE


Schmidt, 19 pitches to record 6 outs, 3 K's. The final out of the 2nd was a deep flyball to RF, however.




YardCock 2nd: NO SCORE


Cortes (hitting cleanup)
6 pitches = weak tap back to the mound


Olson
K, but gets to 1st on a passed ball.........


Tolbert
WALKED, Cortes was stealing and was leaving the base as he thought he was out..... he gets tagged. Honestly that goes on the ump as he has to be loud and tell him that he is safe on 2nd because the hitter was walked. Total horse crap and I'm tired of seeing Yardcocks get shafted by puss poor umpiring. After Holbrook ends up getting in his say, we have a runner on 1st with 2 outs.


Taylor
K, 3 away


I have honestly never seen a base runner picked off of 2nd after a walk. That absolutely sums up our season so far.

We haven't hit consistently in years, and it seems like a lot of our hitters don't dramatically improve as hitters over their time here.

Vandy 3rd: NO SCORE


1

2

3




YardCock 3rd: NO SCORE

USC scores 3 runs on 3 hits.

More drama with the officiating crew.....

Destino does his usual by grounding into a DP.

Cortes is a man among boys.
