The bolded text above is our biggest issue. Case has managed to sign some extremely talented players... but then they get drafted and don't wind up playing for the Gamecocks.
This happens to everyone (including the SEC) but for some reason, Case hasn't been able to land -- and enroll -- as many talented players as our peers. Does his recruiting budget need to be increased? Does he need a (new?) recruiting coordinator? What are schools like troy state (#43 RPI), USA (#45), Ga Southern (#20), Ga State (#96), MTSU (#65), and even Mercer (#26) doing that JSU (#106) is not?
We can't blame facilities anymore.
This is all I am saying.
If Chase can get it done then he should get it done. We need to identify what the issues are holding us back and fix them, but accepting our current level of success as being our ceiling is certainly not the answer. I don’t expect a CWS birth every year, but a 40 win season on occasion and beating rivals is a fair expectation for a program with our history.
30% of our roster are transfers. Is that normal in baseball? I honestly don’t know.
