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.

Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

Tough CWS debut for sure but DP is a good coach that overachieved this year. I agree in that he’ll be back again in the near future. Just makes one really appreciate what Jake and Miss St has done in their first two CWS games and how they were able to overcome tons of obstacles along the way.

I am all for giving Jake credit but to credit the assistant coach with a two year tenure for MS success is a stretch. Success or failure for MS success goes the HC, in this case Gary Henderson. GH has been with MS since 2016. If I am mistaken, then maybe Sean Allen should be the credited with the Texas overachievement..

Of course Texas will be back in the CWS again in the near future. If not, DP will be looking for another job. The question is, how long will Texas keep DP without winning the CWS.

Did you even read what I said? You’ve made a huge leap. I said “you have to appreciate what Jake and Miss St has done to overcome all the obstacles”. Where did I say “credit for all their success?” That’s your words. I referenced Jake because he’s our Tulane guy. And Jake hasn’t been there 2 years. This is only his first season. And he’s doing a great job as already pointed out by his peers. Of course a Henderson has played a pivotal role as well. That’s a given. With that said you may as well give Andy credit for keeping Henderson around. :mrgreen:

Pierce is running the show at Texas. Yes it’s expected at Texas for him to get there and win occasionally.
He’s getting paid well to do so.

DP will be at Texas, under the current Prez and AD, as long as he does not commit the following:
No DUI/DWI's
No Auto accidents after an over ingestion of Alcohol
No screaming "Mother F#@king S$!T' and 'You Sorry Ass F#@king Players' in the locker room while local TV camera are recording
No over indulgence of alcoholic beverages at "Booster / Fund Raising events"

This scene in the movie was filmed at "Top Notch Burgers" on Burnet Rd in North Austin...not sure if the Prez and AD have anything against "bangin'..just drinking and cursing
