I bet he turns them into decent (or better) in a few years.

Great for him. It's a shame we have had quality assistants leave because of their lack of desire/trust of another so they got out before the program was run into the ground by him. Take it for what it's worth but this is why people have left including coaches and players.

Matlock is a great hire for UTRGV!!! He will definitely improve that program.

If Fikac gets the Incarnate Word job, it will be a great opportunity for Texas State....

Is Fikac a serious candidate for the UIW opening?

I am hoping you can elaborate and be a little more specific about how Ty will address this great opportunity if it were to present itself. Scoop?

I have no idea how Ty would address things if Fikac were to leave Tx St. All I'm saying is it would be a great opportunity to go hire someone that could be better and help improve the pitching staff.

The problem isn't the assistants! Here is the problem with the program- we have a head coach that says one thing then does another. The staff comes up with a plan that will help develop pitchers and players, then the head coach decides to do the opposite. There is a total lack of trust of the head coach. This is why we have players transfer, assistants leave and pitchers lack of development. We won't win until this changes or we have a new head coach. By the way, we have 4 pitchers that redshirted as freshmen that have combined for 15 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 18 K's and 4 BB this summer so far. Our head coach HATES using freshman pitchers!

Right around 25% of our innings pitched this year were from true freshman.

Interesting and somewhat funny but sounds like Fikac had a chance to go to OU and be on Skip Johnson's staff but passed.

Guess a staff ERA of almost 7 and a WHIP of 1.7 can get you a Big12 job these days...who knew :roll:

Pretty sure Fikac started that rumor himself.

Reading the baseball page of Bobcatfans is like listening to all the still spry 80 year old ladies in a nursing home lounge gossiping.
