One shoe dropped at UT Baseball as Greg Bergeron 'resigned' yesterday. I put 'resigned' in quotes because we all know the deal. It had to be a very long weekend for Dave Serrano knowing that this was coming yesterday. No fun for anybody least of whom a guy that has been beside Serrano's side about as long as he can remember. I did some research into Serrano and his approach to college baseball and the truth is the small ball he plays at Tennessee is the same form of baseball taught and practiced by Augie Garrido. You probably know him as the mega successful Head Coach of Texas but before he was there, Garrido was renowned on the west coast for winning several College World Series Titles at Fullerton. Garrido is the small ball king. It's a style of play he can get away with because at both Fullerton and Texas he can find pitchers everywhere he looks. The deal with Serrano's tenure at Tennessee is that neither of his first two long time assistants Bill Mosiello or Bergeron was much on recruiting. Aric Thomas was hired to replace Mosiello after he was pushed out (now at TCU) a few years back and has done a better job in terms of getting some young guys to visit and subsequently sign with Tennessee. The issue now becomes who will uproot a family and take a chance on a program that appears to be reshuffling chairs on the Titanic...[more]

How 'bout that Lady Vol softball team. They're a year ahead of schedule in landing in the WSWS. WONDERFUL performance by them Saturday. What a clutch team. They don't have the big arms the others do yet look at them. Talk about a tremendous coaching job by them. I feel sorry for those kids as they are now forced to answer questions about losing their name once the season ends. Even if they win it all, among the first five questions for the Weekly's will be about losing the name. How could Dave Hart do this?

It's so damn silly....[more]

Orange Throat leads today off and he's pissed (and he should be) at what's going on with Von Pearson locally in the press.

Hatfield IX Time: Remember Keith is live on the App today with his call in show 'Show Cause'. It begins at 1pm and is very much worth the listen.

'Memorial Day weekend is here. As always, it's packed with meaningful action.

VOL FOOTBALL FRANCHISE FOUR: Tony had a wonderful segment on Monday’s Tony Basilio Show taking nomination for Tennessee Football’s Franchise Four. He did it in conjunction with MLB currently taking votes for each team’s Top-4 or Mount Rushmore of stars. Though extremely difficult to narrow down to four regardless of your favorite team or school it is an enjoyable and thought-provoking exercise. I have broken mine down into separate categories based on criteria that I determined and describe below:

ALL-TIME; ALL-TIME: These in my opinion are the four that had the greatest long-standing positive impact on the program:

GENERAL NEYLAND: The Father of Tennessee Football and one of the greatest most innovative coaches of all time at any level

JOHNNY MAJORS: Other than Steve Spurrier it’s hard to come up with anyone that combined as great a combined playing and coaching career than John Majors...[more]

WE TALKIN BOUT FANTASY? It’s time for me to bore many to tears and launch others into an Allen Iverson like tirade of “We talkin bout fantasy? Not a game…not a game…we talking bout fantasy?” Well it’s my blog and its April so YES “we talkin bout fantasy”.

Fantasy baseball as I have mentioned in the past is one of those things that I love dearly but can’t play a lick. I guess I’m not an accomplished enough sabermatrician and I have been fairly Yankee-centric throughout most of my fanhood....[more]
