I thought this was a parody or photoshop.

Anyway, Steve Spurrier approves of this hire.

Where does South Carolina rank in terms of the attractiveness of the job?

This is a reminder that some folks on here think we could easily fire Lemonis and hire a coach who would produce better results.

SC is no longer a serious baseball program.
They just fired a coach who went to the postseason four times in six seasons, including two Super Regionals. They obviously expect trips to Omaha.

The only way I would interpret this as them not taking baseball seriously is if they didn't have to pay much to fire Kingston and are getting Mainieri at a discount. I don't know those details.

The buyout for Kingston was 400k.

It’s not really about accomplishments. And they haven’t been to the CWS in over a decade anyway. We and other schools are more committed to winning. LSU fired a CWS winning coach and was fine because their resources are off the charts.

Now do his results with his own recruits. Our previous coaches brought in some exceptional talent that were literally on the field coaches. All Lemonis had to do was stay out of the way and don’t screw it up. I will give him credit for that.

I’m too lazy to look it up but where was T Vitello before being the HC at UT?
They obviously hit on a great coach and a young guy who knew how to recruit.
Is our our A Cannizaro that wasn’t too much of a douchebag?!?!

Vitello was the asst. at Arkansas and was known to be the top recruiter in the country. Would have been nice if Cohen had gone after him instead of Cann. Vitello may not have been at the top of the radar at that time though.

Word in Eastern NC is that USCe made a play for Cliff Godwin, he turned them down and the Cocks really didn’t have a plan B. That’s how they ended up with Mainieri.

Dawn Staley killed MSU WBB and USC Baseball.

And for the “neither are we” crowd - we easily took their pitching coach. South Carolina baseball is a lot closer to UGA than MSU. They’re just strained for resources.

This is such a strange hire to me. I don't understand how Ray Tanner is still the ad. If this is your hire, why not go get Landon Powell from North Greenville University.
Anyway, Ethan Petry feel free to take your talents to Vegas and the Dude.

Godwin and ECU feast off sub par competition for the most part in regular season.
Good coach and may could do well at a P5 school but not sure after all of ECU’s struggles

He'll win there and probably win a lot for a decade.

And nobody here making fun of the hire will show up with a thread calling themselves a dubmass.

But I might...

Yeah. This is a much better hire than people are giving it credit for being.
