Important things about Pierce. He coached up his talent every job he’s been at. We are not getting that now and it shows. Recruiting wise there were some great players that he had coming but he lacked the support from the administration to close deals. The bottom line is he found a way to win in-spite of the difficulties. Sean Allen left for Alabama because of recruiting roadblocks. Pierce immediately picked him up after getting the Texas job.

Everyone on this site should know about the issue with the big classes eating up money . I posted several times over the years that we had got in a rut of having to sign big classes every 4 years b/c those classes didn't have enough good players in them to move on after 3years. However that wasn't what was said about our recruiting problems when Allen left. It was just about how hard it is to recruit at Tulane.

As for DP he is a good coach. All agree on that. However he didn't recruit well here and he and his staff just threw there hands up on the difficulties of it. The question is would he have made a Regional with what he left behind. People can scream all they want that we would have but we'll never know.
You are right with one thing: We will never know. But the fact remains: Pierce took the Green Wave Baseball team to the only NCAA tournament appearances they've had in 10 years the two years he was here. Pierce has never missed the NCAA tournament as a HC.
Again we all agree he is a winner. That doesn't change the fact that he didn't leave much behind.
