    Commenters on your link suggest that pitching coach at LSU or head coach at UT-Arlington may be in Allen’s future.

    Meanwhile, we need to hire a team pitching psychologist.

    I think we can all agree the job now is to go get best pitching coach available.

    Definitely. If Pierce intends to go a different direction then just be sure you get the best guy around. Don't pull a Mackovic/Bobby Jack Wright move or it can be fatal to your own career.

    I want Frank Anderson at Tennessee but I doubt he leaves there to come back. Lol

    this has to be a very good hire, he can’t miss on this one.

    If he's content just being a pitching coach now, why not? Anderson could come back here and name his price (and not have to work for that nutjob, Vitello).

    What’s going to make you guys really sick is realizing that with the right pitching coach this year, we could have made it to the championship game at least. And by realizing it, I mean, watching a real pitching coach come in here and able to get the leftover staff to perform at such a high level that even though it’s supposed to be a down year they do a lot of damage in the playoffs because of the pitching. There is a ALOT of talent on that staff. My previously grim projections for next year were based on the previous pitching coach still being here, now with the right guy, not so much, whoever it is, is going to have to work his butt off though and will earn every penny.

    This would be a dream for Texas. Frank Anderson is the best pitching coach baseball has seen in many decades. I watched him do this for LCU, then Tech, then Texas and on to OSU, then to Houston and now Tennessee. He is the gold standard.

    If he takes the USC job, there will be more letters in his name than there are butts in seats for home games.

    I think USC is the only college baseball program that bests us for number of championships. I hope Tulo sticks around, but he could turn that place into a monster again. Wasn’t it a lifestyle choice by Tulo and his wife to live in Austin? It sure beats LA.

    Chop,

    They can get some housing cheaper than Travis County just a few blocks down Exposition from USC. Still the only campus I've been to where they have burglar bars on the football dorm.

    I don’t want to see Tulo leave and he did a good job here but Texas’ defense has always been great. One thing the state always has are great pitchers and defensive players. Offense has been the toughest to get some consistency but even with tulo last year we set the record for strike outs. Just food for thought. I think we will be ok. Next year is going to be rough trying to replace what we lost, I’ve read a few articles about this guy and that guy replacing a starter but it’s just not going to be on the same level as the upper class man we will lose (overall). Great Pitching and defense CAN keep us in every game though, then all you need is a mistake by the opposing team to win.

    Not being a smart-*** (well, OK, maybe a little bit) but mistakes don't hurt a team until the other guys capitalize.

    Speaking of capitalize, aren’t you supposed to NOT capitalize “ok”?

    (definitely being a smart ***…)

    It's absurd to project with certainty what "would have" happened this year if only one different coach had been present/absent.

    So then why did you post this? Are both of us Captain Obviouses misreading what you wrote? (Which, as it is written, is projecting with certainty what would have happened this year if only one different coach had been present/absent.)

    I really don’t want to keep talk about my opinion as much as healthy discussion about the longhorns baseball team. I’ve coached select baseball for a number of years, one of the guys I worked with is a starting pitcher in the majors currently, another is a starting fielder. Just to be clear, I had nothing to do with their success. The pitcher, I worked with his hitting a little bit, guess that’s why he’s a pitcher and not a hitter in the majors lol. The other I only coached him when he was really young. I only mention this because I’ve been intimately involved with baseball on a pretty high level leading up to college and it’s just my opinion that we failed so miserably at the pitching coach position that anyone competent would have likely had us in the semifinal or championship game, of course there is little degree of certainty. But we just fired a guy for incompetence and we were one of only 4 teams on one side of the bracket. Not that difficult to grasp.

    by the way, nixon just entered the portal, I hate that cause he was damn good and makes next year just that more difficult. What I didn’t think would happen with a high degree of certainty is nixon leaving. I’m certainly way off on that guess.

    I appreciate you expanding on your thoughts. Now that you put that wiggle room into your opinion, I really have no significant objections to it.

    It was just the absolutism of the original post, probably brought about out of a desire for brevity, that got my attention.
