    Congrats to Gillespie. He can thank Mike Garrett for turning on the burners again. If MG hadn’t Gillespie would be the Bench Coach for bucket’s Boys Town Pee Wee Team.

    It is apparent Scott has another vendetta out on MG for firing Gillespie. MG had every right to let Gillespie go! Scott, how many years did Dedeaux coach baseball at USC and how many championships did he win? Now, how many years did Gillespie coach at USC and how many championships did he win? Same program, recruiting the same SoCal talent… you would expect better results than what Gillespie produced! Get off it Scott!

      How many have we won since Gillepsie was fired? Same program, same SoCal talent and nothing. Gillepsie won 40 games and we made the NCAA Super Regional the year before Garrett fired him.

      David, how many times has the USC baseball program been to the NCAA Tournament since Garrett fired Gillespie…do me a favor, draw a big circle and you will have your answer. Stop with the excuses. It’s obvious that no one at USC cares about the baseball program any more. They only care about “hey, we made great strides this year”.

        I agree the AD doesn’t seem to care about this once proud program. But if you do not have a coach who knows how to win enough to make it to the next level (NCAA championships) what good is the upgrade?

      Wolf is beating the heck out of that dead horse.. He’s not going to let it go until their is a poll about it
