The baseball team will be pretty young this season. But they did bring in the number one class this off season and I believe 8 or 9 of those guys where selected in the MLB draft. I think they have a solid shot at getting to a regional heck maybe even hosting one but they are on the right track.And Paul Mainieri better get his team back to where the fans expect (a regular visitor to Omaha) fast or his seat will get hot too.
It's way too early to get on Mainieri. Look how long they put up with Brady.This is coming sooner or later -- although I don't see the point until after the season.

Definitely. A lot of fans got on him after last season, but you gotta give him time to rebuild a program. Smoke did a horrible job recruiting and Maineri also has a completely different system (small ball opposed to power hitting).Yeah...I know he's only in his second year, but I'm just talking about expectations.
He should get at least as long as Smoke got -- and in that period he needs to get to Omaha at least once.
Skip kind of ruined it for anybody that comes after him.
Baseball always has the top recruiting class. And they all sign pro contracts.
Personally I don't want Knight. I've never liked the guy. Yes, he can coach, but he is a horrible human being. That worked for him at Indiana because he was a legend. But, as the legend has faded with mediocre seasons, he can't get recruits and he loses the players he does get. He's alot like Paterno now. He still has some residual respect, but the best players in the country don't want to play for him. IMO, Knight is done.Let the Bobby Knight rumors begin (again). I doubt the b-ball program would be willing to dish out the $$$ to his demands.
