LSU notes: Mainieri loses pitching coach to Central Florida

0 BATON ROUGE -- LSU baseball coach Paul Mainieri has lost another one, but he feels like a proud father. "When one of you assistants gets a head coaching job, it's like one of your players getting drafted or moving on to Major League Baseball," Mainieri said Thursday after learning that pitching coach Terry Rooney will be the new coach at Central Florida. Rooney, who is also LSU's associate head coach and recruiting coordinator and was with Mainieri at Notre Dame from 2004-06 before joining him at LSU, formally accepted the job Thursday and was introduced at a press conference in the afternoon on the Central Florida campus in Orlando. But he didn't plan to be there long. He was scheduled to join the LSU team in Omaha, Neb., Thursday night for the College World Series. The 7th-seeded Tigers (48-17-1) play No. 2 seed North Carolina (51-12) at 6 p.m. Sunday on ESPN2, and Rooney will be with the Tigers for their entire stay in Omaha before reporting for work at Central Florida. "At 6 p.m. tonight, my wife (Shaun) and I are going to be boarding a flight from Orlando International Airport, and we are going to the place where every college baseball player and every college coach dreams of going to," Rooney said at the press conference. "That is Omaha and the College World Series. My vision, my goal and what I want to become a reality is that the next time that I board a plane heading to Omaha, Neb., I want 25 players behind me, representing the University of Central Florida and our baseball program. That is my vision. I can assure peo 6/13/08

LSU Tigers: A BCS Repeat?

0 The last time we saw Les Miles and Co. they were hoisting up the Waterford Trophy that is given to the BCS National Champion. LSU had a dominating performance over Jim Tressel's Ohio State Buckeyes, as they beat them with a little bit of trickery mixed with hard-nosed SEC football. Now they've reloaded and seek to not only become the first team in the BCS era to win three national titles, but also to win two straight. Though many of the LSU faithful believe that Miles can "get 'er done", it's going to take a little more than just belief and a warm fuzzy feeling for them to repeat. LSU will have to traverse the shark-infested SEC waters without their All-American Glenn Dorsey and stud running back Jacob Hester. Both brought toughness and swagger to their respective units, as well as quarterbacks Matt Flynn and Ryan Perrilloux. One might say, "Well, this is LSU and we don't rebuild, we reload". That definitely is true, however, having a team littered with seniors, All-Americans, and All-SEC players is invaluable and can't easily be replaced by just talent alone. Even with a team that had so many standout players, LSU still managed to lose twice, and it took a few teams to lose for them to get a spot in the BCS game. Oh...did I mention Bo Pellini is coaching Nebraska? With all that said, can LSU actually repeat and win the SEC? Lets look at a few factors. Experience Looking back at past champions in the BCS era, they all had a good or dominate defense and a good or dominate offense. Some might argue that Ohio State had a dominate defense but a terrible offense, however, a good offense to me is one that A) doesn't turn the ball over, B) plays smart, and C) wins games when it counts. You can put up all the points in the world, but if it doesn't win games, then it's meaningless. In '07, LSU had both in spades, however, this year, they have five returning starters on both offense and defense. Yes, they have stars waiting in the wings, however, last time I checked, freshmen and sophomores win games, not championships. With no Flynn and Perrilloux, Miles has to turn to either Jarret Lee or Andrew Hatch to run the show. bleacherreport 7/18/08
