    I'm not a big baseball fan, but I want to see LSU return to prominence in baseball. So what are your early thoughts on Mainieri?

    He can recruit. Too early to tell if he can coach. But he seems quite promising.

    Too early? He's closing in on 700 Division I wins.

    For LSU, Yes. But, I think he's shown he can coach.

    He has the pedigree, no doubt.

    I didn't care for the way he threw his players under the buss on the base running error at Tenn.

    I read on a college baseball board that he has a reputation for doing that.
    Can anyone confirm or deny that?

    The only one's who would know are ND fans. They're not exactly talking to us these days :wave:

    I think he cuts players down too often. For example on the coach's show he said Gaudet was a terrible fielder. I have also heard him call Nick Pontiff a poor fielder. I don't think a coach should say things like that for public consumption.
