    Doesn't it seem a little strange that we made a big run at Savage and when he declined our offer, we turn to the interim guy (Hubbs) and say, ok you can coach the team. Yes, he's a USC guy...but if we went for a big name why do an about face and keep what we have...sub .500 coach. We've been atrocious since Gillespie's embarassing departure. I'm tired of how poorly we've performed and have to witness the success across town.

    Agreed. Once the offer to Savage received publicity Hubbs should have been a non-candidate for the job. Obviously the USC administration feels UCLA has the better baseball coach. That should help with recruiting. Not.

    I think USC has offered some quality coaches they just look at the difficulty of fielding a competitive team with the scholarships available and pass. The scholarship limits made schools like CSFU powers while hamstringing private schools. ucla just got extremely lucky in recruiting some big time kids that passed on pro ball. USC not so much and it's showing.

    I know we've gone after top talent and many decide on going into the MLB farm systems. Even with the scholarships, there's no reason we cannot field a team that consistently makes the regionals...let alone finishes above .500. It's pathetic when 5-7 schools from the conference get selected for post season play and the once proud USC baseball program sits at home.

    I hear about this guy down at Irvine who used to win regularly at a private school, even won a national championship at one. Why can't we get coaches like that?
