    Great coaching! Something we have lacked for about 15 years

    As a family I have a choice to get a 2nd mortgage to send my son to USC on 50% scholarship or send him to OSU on no scholarship and put it on my credit card.

    Being limited to only about a dozen total scholarships for a college baseball program definitely hurts USC. The NCAA really needs to change this rule. If the NCAA really wanted to support the student athlete they could easily double the allowable scholarships and have more total people to attend and maybe even stay in college.

    Stop the scholarship excuse. Vanderbilt, Miami, Stanford, Rice all manage to field highly competitive teams each year. We do get 11.7 scholarships, which Gillespie won with. Too many excuses. A down year can happen, but one regional since 2005 is extremely poor. We are not getting the 11.7 most outstanding guys in California or elsewhere. Recruiting is huge, assessing talent very important. Then, managing the program, game strategy, player positioning etc, etc. Bad baseball over so many years has resulted in a big loss of fan / alumni support and interest. Hoping for the best, but given the past it's not looking good.

    The Haden admin did not care about baseball and I don't get the sense that is going to change with the Swann administration.

    Programs doing well have better coaches and recruiting philosophy! UCI, CSF, CSULB, OSU etc. plus cheaper tuition for families to pay, plus title 9 hurts. NZAA will not bump up from 11.7. Baseball has changed since Rod D was here.............. MLB plucks top HS players every year, need to instate same rule as football. Also, Allow academic scholarships to sports like baseball not effect the 11.7

    Simple question: If Paul Mainieri or Pat Casey or Tim Corbin had been head coach for the past 12 years, would SC have only made one tourney appearance? If your answer is 'yes' it must be the scholarship issue. If your answer is 'no' then its coaching.
