I guess since he's now an LSU coach he gets the longest write-up I've ever seen on a Tulane guy........ :mrgreen:

Going to be sad for me to see Andy in purple and gold. He's now a God in BR for his ability to coach hitting and base running.

After being passed up by his alma mater Tulane for lack of experience he ends up getting a better HC job in a better league with Miss St. I heard this Wednesday and had to sit on it. It's finally hitting the news outlets tonight.
Congrats to Andy and his family. Probably take the Bulldogs back to the CWS. Early signing day for baseball is Wednesday.
I wouldn't be surprised to see him bring Jake Gautreau on board down the road.

Troy Dannens 1st hire is 3-5 with wins over southern, UMASS, and ull and a miserable offense. Hope he didn't miss on Cannizaro, I think he did but we'all see.

We are f'n stupid. We are just an incompetent athletic dept and university. We are a QB away from being 7-1 so we send our QB away who ends up getting snatched up by Nebraska who is #11 in the country and we fumble around with a bunch of guys who can't throw or run. Then we have a tailor made hire of the best player in our baseball history and we screw it up bc our AD wants to prove who is in the drivers seat. Had a chance to have a top notch recruiter and coach be a lifer at our program, an opportunity we'll never get again and we screw it up and he is hired several months later at a premier program in the best league in the country. We are stupid.

A baseball AD's first baseball hire at a top 20 baseball school is a guy we should/could have had. This is a colossal f**k up for Dannen.

A source very close to the LSU program told me Mainieri got the call during their scrimmage yesterday. He was pissed, kicking the dirt and mumbling then left the field. Glad for Yank to get a great HC job but it should have been here.

Jeez, we still made a great hire. Relax. This is a guy (Jewett) with a great pedigree and experience dealing with private school issues. Ya'll are looking at this with green glasses IMO.

Miss St. was in a weak position hiring a coach two months into the academic season and after fall ball, I am sure many coaches turned them down. No slight to Andy as I hope he does great.
TD hired an assistant with arguably a better resume. You can question the fact that Andy may have been a life hire but let's see the results before attacking TD on his hire of Jewett.
This is a reaction to the frustrations we all have with the rest of the athletic program. Baseball is in good hands.

On paper looks good but the game is not played on paper. Need to see results on the field.

Not true. Andy was their first choice. The UK head coach wanted. Others were interviewed but Andy was their top pick.

No one has attacked Jewett. They have criticized TD for passing on AC. People with little baseball knowledge said Andy wasn't experienced enough to be a HC. I laughed when I heard that.

Now we wait and see who first gets their program to the CWS and then we can reopen the discussion on who was the best hire.

I agree. However the difference is the intangibles. Tulane was Andy's dream job. He's a Tulane graduate. Arguably the best player in the program's history. A slam dunk with fans, locals and the media. So if things don't pan out with Jewett people won't forget how we passed on AC.
I'm praying Jewett makes us proud. We'll see.

What happened between your 1 AM post and your 5 AM Post?

We have a great coach. And, by the way, the best player in the history of the program was one Micah Owings. Sorry, but as good as Cannizaro was, we don't sniff the CWS without Owings.

And with all of the other intangibles that MSU has to offer, Andy will play with a loaded deck compared to what he would have got had he been named coach at Tulane. To say "whomever gets their team to the CWS first" is the better hire, is absolute BS. I'd spell it out, but you know it's BS. MSU, as a premier program in a much, much MUCH better league, has a whole lot more money to throw away on their baseball program. And not for nothing, but this program did nothing when he was the interim coach.

I wish Andy the best. At the same time, I'm very happy with Coach Jewitt.

Spending money doesn't make you win in baseball. LSU won 5 CWS because of Skip Bergman not their old crappy litter box. We went to two CWS in our old stadium. We then spent $12 million on a new stadium and couldn't get back after that. My point is that for a program that was already planning to spend $40 million (Miss St) in its program had the confidence to hire a "Tulane" graduate Andy Cannizaro to run it. That says a lot. But he wasn't experienced enough to coach at Tulane because he wasn't a head coach. He first had to go to a small program like La Tech win, then he'd be ok for the Tulane job. That's what pisses me off.

No, but the advantages of being a state school in the SEC spending money cannot be overlooked. How many non-scholarship top rate players are going to choose MSU at $20k/year vs. Tulane at $67k/year? Remember there's only 11 or 12 baseball scholarships available. State schools have a HUGE advantage, especially if you've been to a few CWS's and are in what's widely recognized as the top baseball conference in the country.

You're making my point. I was angry at the people that said we couldn't hire AC because he had not enough experience. They don't know Andy. They only know what is on paper. Yet Miss St hired an AD with a baseball background/coach and the first guy he calls and hires is AC. My point is AC is going to be the baseball Rich Rod for us. Trust me. No knock on Jewett. I like him and hope he wins big. I'm just frustrated because I see Rich Rod all over again.
Coastal Carolina won it all last year and they have no money.

You lost me, Tim. I don't see what advantages he would have had at Tulane that he doesn't have at MSU. I see a ton (well, roughly 47,000 of them) at MSU that he doesn't have at Tulane, and that doesn't even bring the SEC or CWS histories into the equation. Help me out and tell me what point I was making for you.

My point is that I thought he got a bad rap from people that thought he wasn't qualified to be our HC. During our last search many said he needed to go prove it at a lower level first then he'd be ok for Tulane and he could come back and coach here. So instead he gets a better job, higher pay, in a better league with more resources at his disposal. And he's already above the Tulane job in the eyes of many. So that's why I'm aggravated. I see him as baseball's Rich Rod. IMO he's a baseball superstar. One that rarely comes around and especially at Tulane. You have to project these things. Some people have vision while others just go by the resume. Just frustrated because I knew AC would get scooped right up as a HC and he has.
Sorry to go off. Nothing personal here. Just felt like I had to defend AC and get the Tulane frustration off my chest. Thanks for listening.
