    I'm confused here. Does this mean we bring on that long desired hitting coach?

    Can we afford to send kids to work with Doug Latta?

    Anyone have any guesses who we bring on? I’ve heard a name, can’t say anymore except he currently works in the SEC. Initial reading of the situation doesn’t seem like the person is likely to come if simply a lateral mive with regards to position or pay.

    Sully wants a guy with more of a reputation for recruiting, as Bell and Sully we’re handling most of that load as of recent . Bell and Weitzel obviously worked together a long time but BW was odd man out over the years with regards to philosophy. I commend all the coaches for making it work and the timing seems right to me . I love BW but the program needs new energy and that’s good Sully sees that. Sully played for BW when he was a kid so couldn’t have been easy.

    I think that @gtj31 thought that I was OK, but I bet he knew some other students that thought that I was Satan, Lucifer, Old Scratch, Beelzebub, etc.

    I don’t recall ill will toward you but your class wasn’t popular. Entropy at 8AM is a tough sell for college students.

    Trust me. A lot of students thought that I shouldn't be teaching.

    I bet that almost all of them would be students that I thought should not be engineers.

    Your not talking Train Engineers here are you? Because I always thought that would be pretty cool.

    This reminded me of a time long ago when there was going to be an undergrad versus faculty softball game and was OK with working with the undergrads to get ready. I was throwing BP softballs up and one kid that did not like me hit a screaming line drive right at me. I caught it much to everybody's surprise including my own. And I just looked back at him without saying a word.

    I think that he had no idea that I played the game. To him I was just a nerd.
