Montgomery pitched his best as a Freshman, so did Wynkoop and Koumas was solid as well even though he finished his career elsewhere. I'm not a baseball guy but do y'all think it's because nobody's seen their stuff? I think a top 16 seed is reasonable we had a ton of late inning blow ups last year. Kingston's hard nosed attitude could correct that.

I'm sorry, but there really is no reason why this team should not make the NCAA Tournament. Otherwise, there would have been no reason to fire Holbrook.

Holbrook was fired because we missed the NCAA Tournament with a team that should have sailed into it and probably should have hosted a regional. If the talent levels are the same, shouldn't the expectations be the same as well? Otherwise, what was the point in firing Holbrook?

We either make the tournament, or we embarrass ourselves again. There's really no gray area on that one. Now, hosting a regional, making a super regional, or getting to the CWS are obviously debatable. Simply making the tournament, is not.

Not debatable? Who are you trying to kid? Not me, that's for sure. We have one returning proven quality pitcher. But we will definitely make the NCAAs?

As we all know it takes a lot more than talent. Yes, we had the talent. Unfortunately, you must also have the discipline. We did not, and it showed.

CMK has brought back the discipline to the program. By that I mean having RESPECT for the program you are a part of, and recognizing that it is a privilege to wear the Garnet and Black and step foot onto that diamond. Even the smallest thing of not allowing their water cups to be thrown on the ground but into the trash (especially in the locker room). Small things like that will show us who really wants to be here and be a part of something special.

Who am I trying to kid? Nobody. Us not making the NCAA Tournament in baseball is like Alabama not making a bowl game. There is no way that should happen. I donít care who is returning. The level of talent that we recruit gives us no excuses.

If you think we should miss the NCAA Tournament, thatís your opinion. I donít think Iím asking a whole lot to say we should make the tournament at the very least though. Thatís literally why Holbrook was fired.

I get what youíre saying, but throwing cups into a trash can is not the deciding factor that indicates whether or not a team will make the tourney. Again, I understand the respect aspect of playing for our program, but talent does matter. Utilizing it properly matters more. Holbrook didnít do that, we didnít make the tournament, and heís gone.

Kingston doesnít get warm-up seasons here. We have talent. He either utilizes it properly or he doesnít. Itís that simple. I think he will be a good coach. I was skeptical at first, but I like how he operates after seeing it (from an outsider perspective obviously). That doesnít change his responsibilities or the expectations that are attached to this program. Making the tourney is the bare minimum.

I also don't buy into us not making the tournament this year.

USC should be able to reload. I guess we will find out just how bad CH left us......
