Point of Reference

For USM, winning the CUSA tourney is not progress.

We were already in the NCAA field until we bogeyed three holes late blowing that and the reg. season championship.

The tourney run, as impressive as it was, was only a repair - double eagle to get back to par.

Winning the regional, however, would be progress.


We still suck bigtime.

Re: Point of Reference

Amen....

Its one of the biggest jokes on some other boards where people are asking where all the Berry haters went.....

Simply stated, being good keeps you employed.......pretty much in any profession.....until it becomes cost prohibitive.

I would ask Jeremy and the Eagle fanbase with rose colored glasses this simple question....If you knew 10 years ago when you hired Berry that you would miss 4 out of 10 tournaments and not have a single win against a 1 or 2 seed over a 10 year period would you still hire Berry for the next 10 years simply because he won regular season and tourney CUSA titles?

At Southern Miss, just passing the grade is what is expected, nothing more. Here are a few points from his contract extension a few years ago after missing four straight regional tournaments....

"Despite missing the NCAA Baseball Tournament for the fourth straight year, Southern Mississippi head baseball coach Scott Berry's job is not only safe but his contract will be extended apparently.

The Hattiesburg American reported Tuesday morning that USM Athletics Director Bill McGillis indicated that Berry, whose contract is set to expire on June 30th, will remain with the Golden Eagles

"It will definitely be extended, and I'm looking forward to his continued leadership," -USM Athletics Director Bill McGillis

The Golden Eagles' season officially ended Monday when the team was left out of the NCAA Tournament for the fourth straight season. Prior to that, Southern Miss had played in nine consecutive NCAA Tournaments.

"We were not rewarded for our strong regular season this year but I'm confident we'll be a Regional team again," McGillis told The Hattiesburg American. "That's our expectation, and I believe coach Berry is fully capable of leading us there.

Re: Point of Reference

I’ve been wondering what would the narrative have been if the ump had rung Franklin up on that 0-2 pitch that was all over the strike zone.
