    The CWS selection is tomorrow morning, and with one regional participation by SC since 2005, what a mess.
    We finished in 7th place. In fact, we were 8th place in PAC-12 hitting, pitching and fielding. Hubbs is optimistic for next season, I'm not. The draft will take our juniors, Acosta, Lunn, Sabol and Kyle Hurt is sophomore draft eligible. Recruiting class is not top 20. Despite Hubbs saying we improved by winning the last two series, all the games count. Scheduled Nebraska-Omaha and Grand Canyon to start and went 3-3 v them. Didn't use Owens and Halsema until the end of the season, Owens batted cleanup the last few weeks, interesting, he can hit and should have been in the lineup from the beginning. I say we underachieved with a junior/ senior lineup. Time for a big change. Will Swann change it, we will see. Swann may be out the door himself and may pass on baseball. Wouldn't surprise me, never see Swann at the games. The final straw will be the Bruins winning the CWS.

    Great recap to another shite season.

    Yet Hubbs is optimistic for next season. Probably has a bad taste in his mouth, too. Wished we played Fresno State this Saturday.

    Whoops! Sound like another coach we know?

    These two guys will do anything to keep gigs they're not qualified for. If Enfield doesn't win big next year, he can join the others in the unemployment line.

    Right now, .500 is as far away as the Everest summit for our big three sports programs.

    Everyone enjoy the selection program?
    Private college notes from the bracket:
    Vanderbilt, 14 straight appearances.
    Duke, Stanford, Miami in the field too.
    Trojans haven't been to Omaha since 2001, a super regional since 2005.

    In Grand Junction, we're proud of our CMU Mavericks baseball program as they are the #1 seed in DII. Another good job by Chris Hanks on building a winner with all of 9 scholarships (not sure if he uses all of them). He recruits well in CA. Had a couple of players in my business class last year. UCSD is representing the West and I would consider their coach, Eric Newman, for another DI job (including ours). He was the coach when Dallas Baptist moved up to DI and has been region 8 coach of the year multiple times.

    SC baseball, the most storied program ever, is mired in mediocrity, and our worthless A.D. is just fine with that. Hubbs is a lousy coach, who either can't recruit, or can't develop, and things wont start to improve until he is sent packing, and we make an attempt to hire a coach, even at the mid major level, that has a track record of winning.
