Is this good or bad?
Offended by Petrino's cursing.
We should put together a thread with all the horrible things Bobby Petrino has done. Maybe call it All The Bad Things Bobby Petrino is Responsible For. I don't know, just a thought.
according to the link, broyles hit the best, 242 in 20 games. The rest were very meh. all were used sparingly, & the roster is at 51, has to be trimmed to 35.
Butler is more responsible for recruiting than he is hitting. While Butler plays a vital role in coaching our hitters, DVH is the person most responsible for out hitting success and failures.
I love DVH, but that was a bush league move he pulled on Franco last season, pulling him after he swung at a bad pitch.
Due to the scholarship limitations and how good the SEC is, SEC baseball coaches have to be almost ruthless when it comes to making the #'s work out. It stinks, but, there just is not enough room to keep recruiting misevaluations around. But, the kids all know the realities of it.
Could it be that DVH had been working with him on that particular pitch and Franco's desire to swing at it in practice? Coaches have a way of punishing those that work against themselves and thereby the team.
The Transgressions of Robert Petrino, Sr.?

from Kendall Rogers:BREAKING: Dane Phillips final transfer appeal to #Arkansas denied by #NCAA. Headed to NAIA Oklahoma City U.
This is annoying. This guy transferred here in mid august and said it was because he "couldn't major in what he wanted to at OSU." So, the coaches and the team jump through hoops and let him join the team because he is a great ballplayer (hitter especially). The University made appeals for him to be immediately eligible because his major etc. Then when he gets denied a second time he transfers to a juco. So, he was here less than a semester!
It is what it is....and that's the way college baseball works.
