Two conference championships in two years. That’s batting 1.000.
Kudos on "versus" versus "verse" as talking heads and many writers use....Flabbergasted—I assume this is another overreaction thread title to counter the thread titled, “Saarloos was a bad choice.” Football, basketball and baseball always bring out the impulsive thoughts that override the levelheaded.
TCU won a title in impressive fashion but it included defeating Kansas State twice and Kansas, two teams not projected to be in the 64 team tourney, and then versus Oky State playing their 6th game in five days.
TCU finished the season 12-2 beginning with the Cal Fullerton series, but only three wins were versus teams expected to be in the tournament—that last one versus a spent Oky State and two versus Cal Fullerton, and after TCU, Fullerton finished the season, 3-7, and are projected to be a #3 seed.
I am pleased that TCU is winning and won the Big XII tourney, but let’s see how those bats do versus better pitching and the TCU pitchers versus better bats. A good time to be optimistic but then be levelheaded no matter what happens. Go Frogs.
It is ridiculous and a slap in the face of Shlossnagle that this comparison is broached by this thread. It should not be taken seriously.Let’s tap the brakes. This team looked like it wouldn’t make the field of 64 just 3 weeks ago. Credit for getting these guys playing their best ball at the right time, but the pitching (KS specialty) has been questionable at best, and we were picked to win the regular season title and ended up tied for 4th.
There’s no argument as to who the best coach, results-wise, in TCU baseball history is, and while some want to try to downplay it because he blew up his personal life and left for Aggy, Saarloos has a very very very long way to go before there’s even a discussion.
Schloss won at least one conference title in each of his first 9 years and won a total of 19 in his 17 complete seasons in Fort Worth (2 CUSA Tournament, 4 MWC Tournament, 3 Big 12 Tournament, 7 MWC Regular Season, and 3 Big 12 Regular Season). In those 17 seasons he took TCU to 15 NCAA Tournaments, won 7 Regionals, and went to 5 World Series.
Saarloos is doing alright. But he’s got a lot to prove. Starting with hosting and winning a Regional and taking this program on an Omaha run.
I couldn’t give two scheisss what *Schloss thinks. He can take a slap in the face.It is ridiculous and a slap in the face of Shlossnagle that this comparison is broached by this thread. It should not be taken seriously.
Reminds me of what I say during Football season. If the posters here were eligible to play, we should have a great kicking game, based on all the kneejerk reactions.Football, basketball and baseball always bring out the impulsive thoughts that override the levelheaded.
