    Re: Brad Bohannon Named Head Coach

    Has their been any official news on assistant coaches? I know he is in Tallahassee with Auburn this weekend, but seems like these guys move quickly. I hope he puts together a solid staff. We can win here even with limitations from lottery and that crap. Just gotta find the kids and coach em up.

    There for a time I figured Bianco would be a candidate for our job. There is a faction over there that would like to see them move on.

    Dax wasn't retained here when Goff came in. I think if offered, he might come back, but what do I know? Personally I love the guy and have never meet him. He just seems to be an "Alabama" man. And he happens to be a dang good coach to boot!

    Having both been longtime SEC coaches I am sure CBB knows Dax pretty well. I wouldn't be surprised to see him back here.

    I hope you know something I don't know. We could do a whole lot worse!

    No, no. I don't know anything. Just using logic. Dax is the best assistant coach we have had here in a long time, and if he would rather be here than south Florida I'd rather he were here. But I know nothing about CBB except he must have lots of good contacts in the coaching business.

    CBB was introduced to the media today, and met with the players that are enrolled in school right now. I have a positive feeling about this guy.

    I guess that means he left Tallahassee and is at work today? The Aubs have a regional final against FSU today. Can't have been easy to leave your players at such a time.

    No, he's going to fly back down there for the game tonight.

    I heard that. I actually think that is a good idea. Seems like a stand-up guy.

    I'm not sure what he's going to do if AU wins tonight, though.

    There has been talk that he would not stay on with the barn if they advanced to the Supers. Now that he has been announced, not so sure either side would want him in the dugout for the Super.

    They didn't make the Supers so he's all ours now.

    Dax would not be a good fit right now. I don't say that necessarily as a shot at Dax. Mitch made him do/say things he didn't necessarily want to do/say and because the Jr/Sr's next season played under Dax and Mitch, it might be awkward. Now, if BB has an opening in a year or two once the kids are bought in to him and his way of doing things, Dax would be a quality hire.

    Biggest thing we need is the kids to buy into Coach BB b/c in fairness to Goff, they didn't buy into him and Byrne let them know it. (Not for a minute saying CGG deserved another minute as coach...)

    Re: Brad Bohannon Named Head Coach

    Yeah, I have gotten that from a couple of people I have heard from, that Goff was so far from where Mitch was that some of the team was NEVER going to get with his program.

    I heard an interview with Wallace Gillberry once where he talked about being a senior on CNS's first team. He said that you could just tell that Saban had it right and that he tried to get the other seniors on-board with what Coach was trying to accomplish, but that not everyone could adjust and it hurt both those players and the team. I can certainly see that, and I understand what Goff was trying to do. On the other hand, CNS was smart enough to understand that you still have to get the best out of the guys you've got. Regardless of what everyone says, I refuse to believe that our 2017 team couldn't have played better. Eich and Walters are/were quality pitchers, and the position players were pretty much what we had on a 15-15 team the year before, but to be historically bad? If Mitch was still here would this team have been 5-24-1? No, I don't think so. I think that Goff quit on these players early in the game and that the players responded in-kind.

    But that's over now. A fresh start. Looking forward to it.
