    2 of the 8 national seeds are private schools........TCU and Stanford.
    Vanderbilt a private school is making it's 12th straight regional.
    Rice a private school, it's 23rd consecutive regional.
    Miami, a private school, last out, after 44 consecutive regionals.

    definitely no excuse for USC given its history and location along with other pricy private schools actually making it to the regionals.

    with that said I can see why these schools have a better chance of getting some players

    undergraduate enrollment w/ current annual tuition

    Stanford: 7032; tuition - $47331
    Rice: 3879; tuition - $45,600
    Vanderbilt: 6851; tuition - $46,500
    Miami: 10768; tuition - $48484


    USC: 18740, tuition - $51,400

    While USC's financial aid is pretty good, it still doesn't cover a lot of students whose parents are unwilling to pay for such a hefty price tag. Compare this situation to schools like Stanford, thanks to their lower undergraduate enrollment are able to give more aid to their students since it is fewer students to deal with compared to USC's large undergraduate class. It doesn't help that Stanford guarantees free tuition for families making $125k or less.

    Ok, so if USC can start offering free tuition then the private school story does not make a difference.
    I believe Rice also has very good financial aid...not sure about Vanderbilt or Miami.

    But the List Price of tuition means nothing. What counts is what the kids actually have to pay + the other associated costs of housing and food etc...

    I don't think we are losing recruits to any of the schools listed. We lose them to Irvine and other schools like that.

    Folks are saying it's about being a private school; certainly is a factor, but we won a national championship in the last 20 years as a private school. Some say it's missing out on talent, but look at how many SC players are playing in the majors. Look at how many were drafted last year. Perhaps having 12 new players had something to do with the results this season and a key pitcher never played meaningful minutes. If we don't make a change this year, given the excuses, do we do so next year? Is Swann the man to make a great change if and when that change comes?
